Greencopper, a company that has built apps for Pitchfork Music Festival and Sasquatch!, has released a content management product for festivals. Greencopper’s new service is called Golive.

Festival organizers can use Golive to create mobile apps, event calendars, and maps. Festivals can also send out push notifications through the app they create.

For $500 a year, festivals can create a web widget with the lineup, schedule, and artist profiles. For $2,500 a year festivals can also build iPhone and Android apps. $4,000 will also get you an iPad app and three iBeacons that geolocate festivalgoers through the app.

Festivals that have already signed up to use Golive include Country Thunder, Winnipeg Jazz Festival, and GéNéRiQ Festival.

    Yay! More reasons for inconsiderate assholes to ruin concerts walking around staring at their phones. Just stay home. Watch the Kardashians or something.

      Festival apps are helpful for things like: finding the venue, seeing the schedule, creating custom lineups, receiving any last minute notifications
