Mobile App for the Fête de la Musique Berlin 2013

on .

SocialSensor is happy to announce the launch of the mobile application for the Fête de la Musique, Berlin.  With an objective to provide a far richer event experience to the 2013  Fête attendees, SocialSensor delivered an app available both in AppStore and Google Play. With its intuitive  features the app is the entire Fête de la Musique experience displayed in a visually beautiful feed.

Users are able to quickly find out what is happening at the event, browse a full day schedule as well as a listing of venues (stages) and artists. In Stages, users can find all the artists performing per stage and filter the information by district, name, time and more according to their personal preferences. With Artists, attendees can view a list of all the artists, get directions to the stage where they perform and link to the artist’s website. Artist details include name, genre, start time, stage and the artist’s URL. With Twitter and Facebook streams users can find all the news related to Fête Berlin and even post and share their experience with their friends. An Interactive map also provides a view of all stages in Berlin and a routing to the preferred stage. Last but not least, our web-based admin tools or synch options make publishing a revised schedule simple and people with the app can automatically receive updates. 

The Fête de la Musique began in Paris in 1982, and was founded by the popular French cultural minister Jack Lang. The festival originated in a humble burst of musical idealism and a few power connections, and yet, in only two decades has become a wildly popular global event.

The app was developed by CERTH in terms of the SocialSensor Infotainment use case.    

 Moving beyond typical functionalities and ordinary event analytics, SocialSensor aims at adding value to the end-user by offering personalization, real-time and post-event event analytics, automatic content matching (e.g. tweets-artist matching), activity heatmaps and sentiment analysis. By exploiting the innate features available and leverage social media analytics that SocialSensor provides, an event planner is able to understand better the impact that an event made, to organize future events in an enhanced way and to target marketing much more efficiently. On the other side, an attendee is having an enhanced event experience by being constantly updated and having an aesthetically designed and personalized overview of the event. 

SocialSensor will design and develop future versions of the app in order to contribute to the creation of mobile applications for large events that incorporate innovative research objectives and are available to a wide audience. Recent examples of such work include the Thessaloniki International Film Festival app [1], the ThessAllios app for the non-profit organization Parallaxi, and the TEDx Thessaloniki app.
