The Austin Buzz has arrived.

Using real-time data powered by social media, The Austin Buzz will keep you up-to-date with the most talked about bands and artists in Austin this March.

The site’s algorithm takes into account volume, engagement and influence across Facebook and Twitter for over 1,500 artists and bands, ranking the top 100 with an option to view a leaderboard, bar graph and pie chart, over four different time periods from 12 hours to seven days.

The results are refreshed frequently, pulling in new posts and updating the scores on all prior posts, ensuring that you are viewing the most up-to-date data of who’s buzzing.

The algorithm scans  for mentions of an artist or band and ranks them based on the volume of posts about them, the influence of the people who posted about them and the engagement on those posts.

Each year, thousands descend into Austin to discover the best emerging talent at the world’s biggest music conference, now, with The Austin Buzz, you can keep track of who is nominally dominating the digital discourse.
