The digital platforms of Appmiral and BeatSwitch – two leading products in the world of music festivals – will work better together through a new partnership. While Appmiral makes sure that festival visitors are offered the best possible experience, Our festival management software works behind the scenes to help organise these musical behemoths.
Through this partnership, we’re aiming to integrate both platforms, step by step. This will allow organisers to handle the complete organisation of their festival(s) or event(s) extremely efficiently. And that, of course, benefits both promoters and festival visitors!

In the first version of our integration, we’ll align the artist management and the mobile app’s scheduling functionalities. We’re aiming for seamless synchronisation, eliminating the need for double data input on the festival organiser’s end. We’ll also allow our clients to communicate changes in their planning or operations directly to their festival visitors, through push notifications and interactive content.
In the coming year, we’ll continue joining forces. The teams behind BeatSwitch and Appmiral will put their heads together to reinforce and promote each other’s product offerings. And in the coming months, we’ll be starting some new initiatives together. From sales and marketing strategies to product development and alignment (API, dataflow, analytics,… ) – we have a lot of improvements in mind for 2017’s festival season!
We are always looking for new technology and opportunities to innovate the festival industry, but last week, an idea set off at the BeatSwitch office sparked by one of our clients. The client told us that he was struggling to manage his Facebook event page and obtain actionable insights from the data. Another issue was once the Messenger extension was added, messages overflowed, making it hard to keep up.
Another two quarters of the year have passed, so let’s look at the 8 most important features we shipped!
1. We ‘ ve Changed the Way BeatSwitch Looks
This year our team tripled. With the extra manpower, we came up with solutions for user friendliness, creating better user experiences and workflows. We tackled our interface kit and designed a fresher look for the promoters’ website. When we’re out fixing the hassles of festival management, we want to make sure we’re lookin’ good while we’re doing it!
