Sometimes ideas are born of frustration. The past few years Bryan
and I have been attending festivals and having trouble accessing schedules in the moment due to poor cell service and/or apps that are full of graphics. At one point last year we started making Google Doc spreadsheets that had the times, bands, venues and twitter handles available - just to make our lives easier.
This morphed into FanPlan.Info, which is a text-based micro site best viewed on mobile phones. It shows (and sorts) the schedule of major festivals by time, band and stage. And when you click "tweet this," a pre-populated tweet pops up with band name, twitter handle (if they have one), venue name, venue handle (if they have one), the time the band is playing, official festival hashtag, and, of course, #fanplan.
