WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL - THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT
09 Jul 2012
Music fans heading to this week’s Hebridean Celtic Festival will have all the information they need at their fingertips with the launch of a new, free iphone app.
The app provides dates, times and venues for every concert during the four days of the award-winning event which starts on Wednesday and is based in Stornoway in the isle of Lewis.
Developed by Sam Deane who relocated his company Elegant Chaos from London to Stornoway last year, it also has links to band profiles and their websites and information about the festival fringe.
A timeline for each day of the festival will allow visitors to plan their schedule and not miss their favourite acts.
Sam said: “I'm a big music fan, and I really enjoyed attending HebCelt last year, so when the organisers approached me about developing an app for this year's event, I was delighted to get involved.
“As a relative newcomer to the area it was also nice to have the opportunity to work on something with a local community focus.”
He added: “We kept the design of the app really simple,to convey the essential information about who is on, when and where, and the result is something that is clean and easy to use.
“If it goes well this year, it's certainly something that I'd like to repeat so we'd love to hear any feedback that people have.”
Festival director Caroline MacLellan said: “The HebCelt app is a great way for festival goers to stay in touch with what’s happening while on the move.
“It is one of the few – and perhaps the only – free festival app in Scotland. It is a fantastic innovation for the festival and we are extremely grateful to Sam who has developed it for us free of charge.”
