London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2013 -- Placed Out looks set to solve the frustration of finding things to do locally. The self-labelled “Wikipedia of places, events and performers” could be the next big thing. Users can follow everything from local bars, clubs and restaurants to bands and comedians. Their newsfeed then gets populated with personalised upcoming events and offers.
Talking about the project, founder of Placed Out, Dan Kingston said “This is like nothing else out there. It’s an incredibly powerful platform that will only get stronger as the user base grows. It’s a massively ambitious project, but we believe it can be the central hub for all places and events.”
Comparisons have been drawn to other websites such as songkick, however Placed Out provides a unique perspective – all data is user-contributed, and there is no limitation to music. All varieties of events can be added; from comedy nights to quiz nights or even local pool tournaments - simply tag the event to help other people find it.
The new website also comes with a powerful search, helping people find useful things such as bars with Sky Sports and a big screen or events for niche interests.
The events market is becoming increasingly competitive, with Facebook amongst others increasing their attention. However with its sole focus on places and events, Placed Out is the exciting new entry and could be the one to watch.
