Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
Fans of Musikfest®, the nation’s largest free music festival, have an exciting, new way to experience the world of music with the new Musikfest App, available now from the Apple App Store. Developed through a partnership between Trifecta Technologies of Allentown and ArtsQuest, the nonprofit that presents Musikfest, the free app includes everything guests need to know to enjoy the festival’s 500-plus musical performances, 60 food vendors, 40 artisans and wide variety of family activities.
Among the many features included in the app are:
- Musical performance schedules by date and venue
- Biographies for more than 300 performers
- Festival updates in real time
- Search options so patrons can look for their favorite music and vendors
- A comprehensive, interactive festival map
- Parking and general festival information
- Contests, promotions and discounts available only to app users
“We're so glad that developing this app gave us the opportunity to partner with ArtsQuest. It's an honor to play a small part in the amazing festival they put on year after year,” says Doug Pelletier, president and founder of Trifecta Technologies. “We're very excited about the new dimension the Musikfest app adds to the festival experience and we're confident that every attendee will find something that appeals to them.”
By registering for the Musikfest App, users can highlight their favorite vendors and performers, and create personalized schedules they can share with other mobile app users. The app’s built-in GPS feature also provides walking distances between all Musikfest venues, as well as real-time information on performances taking place in the immediate area, no matter where a person is on the festival grounds.
“Our patrons have been demanding that we have a Musikfest app,” says ArtsQuest Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Curt Mosel. “We didn’t want to create an app until we were confident we could have a really good product, and now we have a great one. We believe the features and functionality of this app will make it extremely easy for people to discover everything that’s going on at the festival, plus the app is great for sharing content.”
“We couldn’t have chosen a better partner than Trifecta Technologies. We have worked very closely with them, and their entire staff is very dedicated, knowledgeable and on top of all of the latest app technologies.”
