JACOBS MEDIA’s new jacAPPS division has released a new iPHONE app for the DETROIT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL. The 30-year event will take place over LABOR DAY Weekend in downtown Detroit, and will have a new hi-tech look.
"iPHONE apps are a perfect complement for events like this one," JACOBS MEDIA Pres. FRED JACOBS said. "No one walks around with a computer, and paper pamphlets are so 2008. Radio stations that sponsor music events and other festivals should be thinking about how to enhance the experience for its listeners. The iPHONE is an elegant solution that can also be easily sponsored."
The DETROIT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL app is a free download that provides a GOOGLE mapping function to provide directions to and from the location, as well as a map of the entire festival so that attendees will be able to see at a glance how to access the various stages, concessions, parking, and of course, restrooms.
The app also features a listing of the complete DETROIT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FEST lineup, as well as the schedule for when and where each performer will appear. To download the free DETROIT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL iPHONE app go to: www.itunes.com.
