ABOUT ANTHONY & EDMTRAIN

Edmtrain launched in 2013, listing some of the bigger shows in a single place.

"I think a lot of people kept their own personal concert lists at that time. Over the past 7 years, our focus has remained on capturing the most complete listing of unique experiences possible. 

We see a few types of people that benefit the most from edmtrain: People that don't have free time to spend searching for shows. And, people that like to be aware of everything that's coming up.

We've noticed there's almost no end to how deep the scene goes, and how some of the hidden gems can be just as impactful as the biggest shows. 

Our early adopters know we have come a long way, and we’ve grown with them.

Now it’s all about continuing our growth with the community. Continue adding to the experience."

WHAT'S EDMTRAIN UP TO RIGHT NOW

  • They added a livestream tab for users to keep up with all the livestreams going on.

  • Livestreams are not just focused on A-listers - but also artists on the rise.

  • "We don’t add all the events ourselves. Artists, promoters, venues and fans add shows/streams to the platform and we approve them quickly. This isn’t our platform. We want everyone to know they are 'edmtrain'."
