If you always had to search in combination with a location, you can now do this with the addition “nearby”.
Find nearby events on Google
To do this, simply open the browser on the desktop or search on your smartphone by either searching for “event” in general or by typing in more specific terms such as concerts, shows, theater or festivals. The “Browse” tab independently compiles a selection that can be filtered via “Today”, “Tomorrow”, “This week” and so on. Anyone who has already called up the nearby search and then wants to search again can do so via the six categories now offered.
Using Google, it is easier than ever to search for events in the vicinity: on the left a festival with a ticket link, on the right the search using rubrics.
If you are interested in one of the listed hits, tap or click on the event to find out more information, such as time, location, price and ticket provider. Finally, a link to the ticket provider allows the purchase of the respective tickets.
