    have you folks considered integrating the BandsInTown platform, where it pulls the dates/feed into the event calendar system?

    BandsInTown as gotten MUCH more attractive and flexible, but it still doesn't look nearly as nice as we could custom code w/ the raw data IMO.

    Hi Shannon,

    Thanks for your input. Currently we have a custom widget that will embed the bandsintown iframe into elementor which is pretty basic but it works.

    If we receive more user request for bandsintown API, we will consider it,

    Thanks,

    i realize that you have a standalone feed widget... but that makes it impossible to create a multi-artist listing page, for any users with more than 1 artist listed within their website (such as the 9 artist website i'm building for an artist management company).

    the bandsintown widget works wonderfully on each individual artist page, BUT:
    - that leaves our "tour dates" page ...uhh... well, i'm not really sure where it leaves that page.  i'm not really sure how to automatically populate it
    - if we don't pull from a feed, that also means that if we manually enter in each event/date, we'd also have to source an image for each event/venue/location
    - to make a native color change (without forcing an additional CSS class) in the BiT widget, i have to manually update each widget on each artists' page

    Im sorry Shannon, 
    Perhaps there is third party plugins that exists for your needs but I unfortunately, I have not experienced anything close to what you are looking for yet.

    Thanks,
