There is a Hackathon event tomorrow to build apps with the Lolapalooza API, if you’re more technically inclined. You can find more info on the Plancast for the event, and also check out a blog posting that Tim Gasper from KeepStream wrote.
It’s a HACKATHON to build cool apps with the Lollapalooza API, brought to you by Keepstream and Hurricane Party. Why? Because it’s a chance to win some really awesome stuff!!!
Here’s what they say:
Lollapalooza is offering over $5,000 worth of prizes and tons of promotional exposure for the best mobile, web and desktop apps created using their API. Developers can access data on artists, events, stages/venues and updates for Lollapalooza 2011. Prizes will be awarded for apps that help fans get the most from their Lollapalooza experience before, during and after the Festival. Winners will be promoted on the official Lollapalooza website and to fans via email, Facebook, Twitter, and the jumbotron screens at the Festival.
