ShowDrift: StubHub’s Event Recommendation App…

  • Save

Secondary ticket retailer StubHub has more than one way to sell you tickets. They’ve now updated ShowDrift, their event recommendation app.

ShowDrift was quietly launched in November 2013, and remains early-stage.  Currently, the app only recommends events in the San Francisco area, but StubHub is planning to expand into other areas in the future.

ShowDrift pulls information from your iTunes library, recommending events based on that information.  You can also track your favorite venues or see every single upcoming event.

Unsurprisingly, the app shows StubHub tickets most prominently.  If a show is not sold out, you’ll be better off buying tickets directly from the venue, but ShowDrift is a good choice for sold out concerts.

The event view conveniently lets you preview music from bands on the bill.  It also uses The Echo Nest to recommend related events.
