This post is a must-read for everyone who likes to plan and keep up to date on surprises.
The past couple of months we’ve been working on a mobile app that allows you to plan your schedule in a more efficient manner, and also allows us a better way to announce surprises to you.
With that being said, we’re happy to share the official EAUX CLAIRES mobile app for iOS and Android users. The links for these are below:
In this app you’re going to find the typical things you might expect from a festival mobile app: a map, some info on the installations, some info on the lineup, etc. But we’ve also included a couple of features that I feel are essential for everyone to maximize their experience at Eaux Claires:
The first feature is that you can plan and customize your daily schedule so that you can figure out all the acts that you want to see ahead of time and easily visualize this list via the app during the event. Dig deep in this section. There are a lot of useful features to view the entire lineup by stage or by times, or by a grid view if you click on the grid icon in the top right corner of the lineup section.
There is an up-to-date map included in the app. Study it and get to know where the stages, art installations, beer, merch tent, and other essentials are located on the grounds. There is a lot of space to cover and explore.
I know! I know! I hate push notifications on my phone, but seriously, they’re going to be essential to get information to you. Aside from weather emergencies and schedule changes, we’re putting a “Surprise Performances” category in our push notifications so that our team can let you know if there’s a guest collaboration on stage or even an unannounced performance that’s going to happen somewhere on the grounds. IMPORTANT, I guarantee there are going to be surprises during the festival that you won’t want to miss. Turn these on and we’ll try and keep it civil. It will be WORTH IT.
I hope you all enjoy this addition to your festival experience. Tell your friends, remind them to download the app so that we can get information to you. I’ll be hitting you up through Push during the festival.
