A Summer of Festivals on Google Maps

Festival season is on the horizon once again and a couple of Google Maps based apps can help you find the best musical, arts and other types of events happenings near you.

In the U.S. EventNearby is a mapped based guide to upcoming events of all kinds. Users can use the links in the map sidebar to filter the results shown on the map by category. If you find an event that takes your fancy you can click through to get further details, such as the dates of the events and the event website.

Festival Searcher is another Google Maps guide to music festivals taking place in Europe and America this summer.

The map markers are colour-coded by month so that you can get a quick overview of what festival is taking place when. I assume the size of the markers relates to the size of the festival displayed.
