there's an API and libraries for pulling data from musicbrainz, and a separate library for writing to musicbrainz.1 vote
I looked into MusicBrainz a bit more. They actually don’t have much concert data yet. Currently they have about 39,000 events, whereas Concert Archives has about 470,000. Even though many of their concerts aren’t on Concert Archives yet (mostly classic rock), that amount of data doesn’t yet warrant the effort it would require to integrate it.
I’ll keep an eye on the project and it’s definitely a good option in terms of artist data should I go down the road.
Thanks for letting me know about it!
I love the site, and am a developer myself - would be glad to help fix bugs / develop new features, but I couldn't find a github repository or anything linked.9 votes
Thanks for your interest in open sourcing the site. I especially appreciate those that have offered to contribute code! Others were wanting it to be open sourced so that they could host their own version of the site. While I understand that point, it’s really not feasible as the site has grown over the past 6+ years (in terms of technical complexity or a financial standpoint).
Disable the ability to allow the addition of concerts taking place in the future as those concerts can be cancelled, which will lead to an inaccurate database as I doubt that users are returning to these entries 100% of the time.1 vote
We’re embracing future concerts and added more features for them. If a concert gets cancelled, you can use the ‘Report Issue’ link in the navigation to let me know and to delete it.
