Finally! A great solution to being at a location for a specific event: event check-ins on Foursquare. The company shared the new partnership via their blog recently, and got a lot of good feedback in the comments. It is clear that many people were waiting anxiously for this feature to be made available.
Events will pop up within Foursquare a few hours before each event begins, allowing users to not only announce that they are at the venue, but a specific show or sporting event. ESPN and movietickets.com have also forged partnerships with the social company, as seen in the photos below.
Songkick is celebrating the new feature with a contest (for iPhone users) for a chance to win a year of free concert tickets.
How will you take advantage of the extra data this offers your band for your shows?
