2018 artist bios won’t load
This app has always been stellar. Super useful and user-friendly, absolutely needed to help make the Fest that much more fun.
This year the bios for all the bands aren’t loading when using the app. This isn’t a deal killer just a big annoyance for an otherwise great app. Is this big being worked on?
Edit: real time usage on Friday, the scrolling feature as bands’ set times would tick off doesn’t work anymore. Additionally, everything is off by an hour at least. Just got a notification that Moses Sumney was playing the Harbor Stage at about 4:25. His set ended a while ago and Rachel and Vilray was already more than halfway through their own set.
Time is broken and Alerts are incredibly delayed
Time within the app is broken, it often thinks an act starts in the future that has already finished. Alerts about artist arrive hours after act has finished.
Maybe this was caused by bad connection to the cellphone network? With the number of the people at the festival I would expect the app to work better offline.
I would be better off with a pdf of the schedule saved to my phone, but that isn’t an option.
Christmas in July
Newport folk app may be the best thing on the summer. Works as your personal concierge for the greatest music festival. Turn it Up.
