Belfast Music iPhone App
Discover Belfast's rich musical heritage and the latest gigs on your mobile phone
Imagine there was a way to discover the rich musical heritage of a city, through a mixture of historical anecdotes and street level music info, accessible anywhere, anytime. It exists and it’s called the Belfast Music iPhone app.
The Belfast Music iPhone app showcases past legends and contemporary inspirations that have shaped Belfast's music landscape. Check out where Belfast legends grew up and cut their musical teeth, and check out the many venues that show off the present wealth of musical talent.
Within the application the user experiences a Music Heritage tour, narrated by broadcaster Stuart Bailie, one of Northern Ireland's champions of local music, equally as enjoyable whilst walking the streets of Belfast as lounging in the clubs and bedrooms of the world; the Hall Of Fame introduces you to the legends of Belfast Music; the Gig Listings & News sections will keep you up to date on all things going on; and the Showcase will introduce you to the hottest bands and songwriters.
With musical accompaniment from David Holmes, Neil Hannon & The Ulster Orchestra, Rudi, The Undertones, Ash, Therapy and many more, the Music Heritage Tour takes you on a journey of old and new, covering all manner of genres, tastes, and locations.
As part of their ongoing commitment to lifting the international profile of music in the city, Belfast City Council in partnership with NITB, OhYeah, Filmtrip and CultureNorthernIreland have created this iPhone application to accompany the new Belfast Music website, and the music bus tour. The iPhone app will be launched in May 2010.
