Whats on in Melbourne?

A new website aiming to help people find fun and interesting events in the cities they are in or travelling to, is launching live on August 7.

Whatevents.com solves the ever-present problem: what’s on, when you’re there?

The service is a new startup from Perth entrepreneur Rob Whyte and his team of travellers.

“To explain it simply: we tell people what’s on, when they’re there,” explains Whyte, who been frustrated with this very issue for nearly a decade.

“My wife and I have travelled a lot, but whenever we do, we always struggle to find what’s happening on and around us, and it can get frustrating. We would often joke, why doesn’t someone just build a site that tells you? So, we thought, let’s just fix this ourselves!”

The incredibly intuitive site allows users to type in an Australian city, and the date range that they will be there.

The site provides a huge variety of event options, while still making it easy to find something that interests you – whether its a farmer’s market, music festival, sporting event or craft workshop! Having fun doesn’t have to break the bank, with a huge number of fantastic free events to keep you and your friends or family entertained.

You can easily find accommodation options nearby your favourite events, and filter to make sure they meet your budget, which suits people travelling who might not know an area well.

Whatevents works across all popular platforms, and whilst Whyte admits there is still room for improvement “We just wanted to get it working and out there, rather than spending a lifetime making it perfect! It works, so we just want people to try it out, warts & all.”

“Our team have loved working on the project and we’ve had a heap of fun planning our own weekends & trips while working on it”

We look forward to making use of the site here in Melbourne! If you’re looking for yoga and floating in Melbourne then you might like to check out the Liquid Room in Melbourne.
