Updated by Antwonne D. on 09/14/2016

Wherever you're located, you can use the Eventbrite app for Android (Android version 4.3 and up) to find, purchase tickets to, save, and even share events that you’re interested in. You can also use the app to reference tickets to events you're registered to attend.

TIP: eblink{Help is available for iPhone users, too=>}.

NOTE: If you’re organizing an event on Eventbrite, you can use our eblink{Eventbrite Organizer=>} mobile app—our box office solution for your events.

Find events to attend

The eblink{Eventbrite app=>} makes it easy to find great upcoming events near you.You can see recommended ("For You") and "Popular" events in your area. With the "Friends" tab, you can connect to Facebook to see events your friends are going to. Use the map icon to find events nearby or the magnifying glass to search for events using your current location (or a location of your choosing.) There's also a filter button (e.g., sort by date to find events happening today or this weekend!)

1. See recommended and popular events in your area.

Scroll through our list of recommended ("For You") events in your area. You can also use the menu at the top to see "Popular" events, or events your "Friends" are going to. When viewing recommended and popular events, tap "Filter" at the bottom of the screen to sort through events (show only free events or filter by date.)

TIP: Want to change your location? Tap your location at the top of the screen to enter a new one or choose a location from the list of "Popular Locations."

NOTE: Tapping the profile icon at the top of the screen lets you see tickets to events you're registered to attend, events you've saved, and event categories you're interested in. For more on that, jump to "eblink{Finding your tickets=>}" below.

2. Search by category, keyword, and/or location.

Tap the search icon (magnifying glass) at the top of your screen to: • Browse for events by category—music, business, food and drink, community, arts, etc. • Search by keyword For either option, you can use your current location or one of your choosing.

Find tickets you ordered

The Eventbrite app makes it easy to reference tickets you've purchased to events. Show your ticket to scan for entry (if the event organizer has tickets enabled for their event), see details about each event you're registered for, or get in touch with your event organizer.

1. View your tickets.

Tap the profile icon in the top-left to go to your Eventbrite profile. Under "Tickets," upcoming events show first. Swipe up to reference tickets registered to past events.

2. Show your ticket to scan.

Organizers can scan your printed-or-digital ticket barcode for entry, although you still may be asked for identification. Check your order confirmation email to make sure you have everything you need to enter your event.

TIP: If you purchased more than one ticket, an arrow shows next to the digital ticket barcode. Tap to reference additional tickets on your order.

PRO TIP: Tap the calendar icon in the top-right to add a reminder for the event to your default calendar. Information should already be included on your calendar reminder, but feel free to edit to add any other information you'd like before saving.

NOTE: Not all organizers require tickets for entry. You'll see "This organizer has disabled mobile tickets" if tickets aren't enabled for the event.

3. Reference event details.

Select the event you want from the list. Then tap "Info" to reference event details (like the location, date, and time.) You can also see any friends that are going to the event if you're connected to Facebook.

TIP: If you need to cancel a registration for a free event, you'll need to do this directly on or eblink{contact the organizer=>}.

NOTE: Having trouble finding your tickets? eblink{Try these options=>}.

Swipe up to scroll down, then tap "Contact" to get in touch with your event organizer.

Tap the bookmark icon in the bottom-right corner to save an event to your Eventbrite profile. You can also tap the bookmark again to remove it from your list of "Saved" events.

TIP: If you save an event, you won't get a reminder letting you know when the event is coming up, so be sure to check your saved events often.

NOTE: When viewing an event on the Eventbrite app, the bookmark icon appears in the top-right (not bottom-right.)

2. Revisit saved events any time.

Tap the profile icon in the top-left to go to your Eventbrite profile. You'll see all of your saved upcoming events under "Saved."

3. Share an event.

You can share an event by tapping the share icon. You can also share an event when viewing the details of an event. Choose one of the default sharing options.

4. Receive friend notifications for events.

Tap the profile icon in the top-left to go to your Eventbrite profile. Then select the menu icon and tap "Settings." Select "Social" and tap to switch Facebook on. If at least two of your Facebook friends are going to an event, you'll get an alert that sends you to the event listing.
