How to find events on gigglemusic
How to find live classical music events on gigglemusic – the social media app for musicians. Filter events, look them up in a specific location, date, or word, and find nearby venues, musicians & more. See how the different arrows, locations, and magnifying glass work.
We’ve added nearly 80 thousand events to gigglemusic. They are performances of operas ballets, symphonic concerts, chamber music concerts all over the world.
- You can see these by tapping on Events. They’re listed in order of physical proximity, at least by default. You can scroll down to extend the list to ever more distant locations. And you can look at these on the map if you tap the Location icon at the top of the page. We go back. You can see that by tapping on a particular event you can see more detail.
- You can tap on the location to see the precise location for this event, You can tap on the URL to take you to the opera house in this case, where you can buy tickets. You can also add any event to your diary if you tap on the diary icon just to the right of the event name and confirm this event will now be listed in your diary. Don’t forget that you can add your own events at any time so that they’re listed alongside all of these.
- You can also filter the events, so if you tap on the magnifying glass at the top right of the page, you see that you can change the location from which you’re looking for events. So, if you’re travelling somewhere you can look for events near that particular place, you can also choose by type. So, for example if I chose only to look for ballet performances, I can choose that event type and then tap on Apply and you see that it’s a different list. You can go back to the filter page and clear your search criteria and Apply again to have the original list restored.
- You can use the arrows to the right of the date to move forwards and backwards. And of course, you can choose to change the date as well. The double-chevron arrows enable you to search for events that meet the filter criteria that you specified here. So, for example, if I were to search for “Wagner”, then I could use the double-chevron arrows to look forward to finding the next event that contains the word “Wagner” in the title or in any of the comments.
- There is another way of reaching events and that’s through groups. If you tap on music groups organizations you will see groups near you, you can filter those of course as well and look at them from a different physical location. But if I tap on the dots on the right of the particular venue, for example, the state Opera in Prague, you will see that there is an option called Group Calendar and here I can see the events, the upcoming events laid out in sequence, from here I can do everything that I could do before – add it to the diary, go forward to the venue’s website and so on.
- You can also specify that a particular group is to become a favourite and therefore be more easily accessed, if I scroll down, I might find something like Semperoper Dresdenif I tap on the group, I could then add this to my favourites, this actually is already a favourite of mine, so the option now is to Remove it from favourites. Favourites are reached from the bottom of the page, there is a group icon here and you will see that favourite groups are listed at the top; easy to go from these to groups calendars and so on.
So that’s events for gigglemusic.
