Shazam meets Twitter for Body&Soul 2015 with the launch of new Music app
As you walk from stage to stage at Body&Soul this Summer Solstice weekend you can find out who is performing right in front of you with a revolutionary new app. A game changer for live music, new app MUDDY, will enable festival-goers to explore their musical curiosity as they discover new music and acts all weekend. The perfect app for a festival with an ethos that is all about discovering and exploring new genres of music and new acts from electronic to jazz and reggae to rock.

MUDDY is the first app of its kind in the world. It was created after founder and music enthusiast Ian Henderson realised there was a gap in the market for a real time live music discovery app. He teamed up with tech entrepreneur Rob Beresford who saw the potenial in the idea. MUDDY was born. Now just a year from concept to launch MUDDY is here just in time for Body&Soul.
Ian Henderson explains "For the launch of MUDDY we wanted to partner with a festival that has musical discovery at its core. Body&Soul was the obvious choice for an app that is all about discovering new artists at live events. It was important to launch it at a festival that offers festival goers the chance to discover new music acts and genres all weekend"
MUDDY is as essential for a festival as your wellies and is available to download now via ITunes with an Android version in the pipeline.
