This is where you can expect to catch some sneak-peeks of upcoming features, get a sense of what’s going on in the Pollstar engine room and maybe even ask one of our software developers a technical question or two.

The new Pollstar site has taken a long time and great deal of hard work to reach it’s full potential and we’re not finished yet. There is still plenty of work to be done and we have a wealth of ideas on how to make it absolutely indispensable for our professional audience, while still remaining a great source of concert information for everyone. We have literally dozens of features, ideas and improvements waiting in the wings and we will be introducing them as quickly as we can.

In preparation for the Pollstar Live! 2018 conference, we have been burning the midnight oil and making sweeping improvements to the user experience and overall design of the site. Due to popular demand, we’ve completely revamped the search feature, making it faster and easier to use than ever before and we’re paying particular attention to how the site performs on mobile devices.

In the coming weeks, we will be announcing our much anticipated API. It has been completely rewritten from the ground up and is now an industry standard RESTful API with full OAUTH support. This should make it much easier to integrate with client-side JavaScript applications than the previous version. Documentation for the API will be posted on this blog when it becomes available.

Also, for the first time in Pollstar history, Tour Histories are now available for non-subscribers to purchase for $25. Many people use the information available at Pollstar to supplement their concert industry business, and now they will have one extra tool in their toolbox. Of course, Tour Histories only represent a fraction of the data available at Pollstar and our valued Pro-level subscribers will continue to enjoy all the benefits of a paid subscription, including a 50% discount on all Tour History purchases.

As always, customer feedback is invaluable, so please keep it coming! And maybe I’ll see some of you at Pollstar Live! 2018

Thank you,

Dan Martin
