Discover events recommended by those you follow!

Add interesting events to your account and recommend them to your followers.

We are an Open Source, Federated network of Open Data for discovering interesting events.

We help people discover good events - we do not help organisers host events or do any related functions such as tickets or mailing lists. (We know it's a problem when event discovery platforms try to capture an event's audience for their own purposes - we do not do this!) Instead we simply help people find good events and then direct them to the original home of that event, wherever that is.
We heavily promote Open Data about events - with totally open feeds from our app that can be imported straight into people's personal calendars, and a full read/write API and bots to help you re-use other data sources.
