This year, the Atlanta Jazz Festival is teaming up with one of the fastest-growing new social media apps called SpokeHub, a platform that allows users to connect and chat in real-time around topics and events.
SpokeHub has revived the chat room concept and will engage Festival goers in topics about featured artists, event sponsors, merchants and more!
SpokeHub will feature topics of conversation on the main Atlanta Jazz Festival Hub, and then will have three “sub-hubs” for conversations around each stage – the Next Gen Stage, Contemporary Stage and the Legends Stage. Festival goers can download the SpokeHub app on their phones and enter “hubs,” similar to text message groups and chat rooms, to discuss trending artists, songs and more.
“We are excited to work with SpokeHub to create a social platform where Festival attendees can go online to discuss their personal experiences,” says Camille Russell Love, executive director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. “We also will use the hubs to collect feedback, which will help us continue to create the best possible event next year.”
In addition to SpokeHub, for the second year, the Atlanta Jazz Festival line up and information is available in the palm of Festival goers’ hands through atljazzfest.com – a mobile friendly website that acts like an app – but takes up no space on users’ phones.
