Apple Music’s Setlists and Maps’ Guides arrive a little over a month since Apple Music Classical was launched.
Apple Music has added concert discovery to its list of interactive features, with the new Music Venues “Guides” and Setlists now available on Maps and Apple Music respectively.
According to a press release shared by Apple Music, a “global team of expert curators and lifelong music obsessives” are behind the new features.
40 new Guides are available through Maps on anyone’s iPhone (including Australian-centric options you can see above) via apple.co/MusicVenues (case sensitive).
The featured cities include Melbourne and Sydney, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City, San Francisco, Berlin, London, Paris, Vienna, Tokyo and Mexico City.
Maps’ Guides allow punters to search through venues’ upcoming shows, from the Forum to The Toff In Town, powered by Shazam’s concert discovery module. As Apple notes, the music-searching app Shazam introduced its concert discovery option last year and incorporates information from Bandsintown.
On Apple Music, fans can look through their favourite artists' upcoming shows on the new Setlists function via apple.co/setlists. Shazam and Bandsintown provide concert information for the world’s most popular artists, including blink-182, Kane Brown, Sam Smith, and many others.

Apple Music’s Setlists and Maps’ Guides arrive a little over a month since Apple Music Classical was launched. Available to current Apple Music subscribers at no additional cost, users can download the extra app from the App Store.
Oliver Schusser, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Music and Beats, said about Apple Music Classical, “Apple Music Classical is a dedicated app that is great for classical experts as well as anyone who is new to classical, with the largest classical music selection in the world, the very best search and browse capabilities, the most premium sound experience with Spatial Audio, and thousands of exclusive recordings.
“We believe this is the very best classical music streaming experience available anywhere, and for us, this is just the beginning.”
In December, Apple Music ventured into karaoke and introduced Apple Music Sing.
The new feature allows users to adjust vocals and look at real-time lyrics. Fans can take the lead for their favourite songs, perform duets, sing backup, and more. Man, I Feel Like A Woman, anybody? The High School Musical soundtrack?
