Map Channels Events is a huge new Google Maps music and sporting events mash-up with tens of thousands of events displayed at thousands of venues around the world.

The site includes an interactive event calendar and displays each of the event venues on Google Maps. It is possible to search for events by name, category, date or location. The site includes ticket price comparison, city tours of attractions and the ability to view venues with Google Street View and the Google Earth Browser plug-in. Best of all, when you find an event you are interested in you can then buy your tickets there and then from the Map Channels site.

This is a hugely impressive Google Maps mash-up, not only for the huge number of events and event venues that are displayed but for the added features, such as Street View and the 3D tours via the Google Earth plug-in.
