We’re joining the Ticketfly family!

Date: 21 August 2014

What a journey we’ve been on since launching WillCall way back in 2010. We’ve had ups, downs (but mostly ups!), crazy and exultant moments, and always persevered with a smile firmly planted on our faces, and music in our ears. Now it’s time to shift into second gear.

Through it all, one thing has remained true: Our goal is to make your event-going experience the best it can possibly be.

And we’ve found the perfect way to accelerate the realization of that objective – we’re joining the Ticketfly family!

We couldn’t have got here without you, whether you bought a ticket or a drink, sent us feedback, commented on our push notifications (namely the ones about Daenerys and her dragons), delivered us kegs of beer, or promptly told us when something was broken.

Everything you love about WillCall is about to get even better. Expect access to even more great shows, innovative mobile offerings, and beautifully designed products.

Ticketfly shares our vision to reimagine how fans experience live events. We couldn’t be more ecstatic about what’s to come.

- Donnie + the WillCall Team

Mid Year Review: Best of ‘14 (So Far)

Date: 7 July 2014

Sure, we’ve only made it to July but that doesn’t mean the first half of 2014 wasn’t a doozy of a humdinger, packed to the hilt with top notch tunes from bands like Future Islands, Black Keys, and Mogwai, as well as heavy hitting summer singles from hot tamales like Beyonce, FKA Twigs, and St. Vincent. To help you sort though the huge mix of killer tracks out there, we’ve asked around the WillCall office and come up with this snazzy stack of songs to give you an idea of what we’ve been groovin’ to since the year kicked off waaaay back in January (a million internet years ago).

Fests on Fests on Fests

Date: 2 July 2014

Festival season is upon us like glaze on a donut and we’re ready to get sticky sweet with sweaty jams, outrageous outfits, food trucks, and the great outdoors. For those who wish to rave around the redwoods we have Northern Nights, daytrippers can get down with Monterey’s First City Festival, and we city folk can find solace at SF’s Phono Del Sol, right in the heart of Potrero Del Sol Park.

Big-ass blowout or intimate outdoor gathering, we’ve got your pick of festivals this summer and we’ve even got your pre-game playlists. Take a looksee + a listen below… 

Phono Del Sol
Though they may only have a 10 band lineup, being on the smaller side just makes this little fest all the more lovable. Taking up the whole of San Francisco’s Potrero Del Sol Park with two stages, a marketplace of hipster must-haves, and a beer garden, we recommend you start staking out your perfect viewing location ASAP. The all-day, all-ages fun is sponsored by The Bay Bridged and Tiny Telephone. Bonus! Bar Tab is fully enabled in the beer gardens, so you can skip the ATM lines.

Northern Nights
Held in a grove of redwoods, near the sparkling swimming holes of the Eel River, just off highway 101; this is the fest for your granola crunching, electro freak, sustainable living, partying types. Vegan and gluten-free food options, yoga and craft classes, stand up comedy and wellness workshops, plus a bevy of sexy beats and smoking DJ sets as you make s’mores? Sounds like the organic craft beer drinking, hammock lounging, biodegradable, booty shaking event of the summer. Bonus! A portion of the proceeds from ticket and beverage sales are donated to the Medocino and Humboldt School Districts, non-profits, and local environmental groups.

First City Festival
Taking place in Monterey, California’s first official capital city, this weekend of music, food, and fresh ocean breezes will relax and revive the most jaded, faded city slicker. For amongst the picturesque coastal setting the historic grounds feature a full on carnival complete with free and unlimited rides and games so kickin’, so freaking cool, so crazy fun you might just forget to go see any of the bands play. Held on the same spot as The Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, (the pioneering three-day rock festival that introduced America to the wonders of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Ravi Shankar, and Janis Joplin) there are three stages, not to mention a Vaudeville variety stage, local craft beers, wine, and fancy food vendors. Bonus! You can dig through the vinyl record collections of collectors and dealers at The Beat Swap Meet.
