AVAI Mobile Solutions, based in Austin, announced it has been selected as the primary mobile technology partners for Austin-based C3 Presents, which produces Austin City Limits Music Festival and Lollapalooza.

AVAI, which Silicon Hills News wrote about in 2013, did not disclose the terms of the deal.

AVAI Mobile will be working with C3 to produce native apps for all the C3 music festivals, including Austin City Limits Music Festival and Lollapalooza. The app rollout began earlier this month, with new apps and features releasing as the festival calendar is announced.

“We’re excited to provide C3 with a higher-level mobile strategy and a new technology for their multi-app requirements,” Rand Arnold, CEO and Founder of AVAI Mobile, said in a news release. “C3 needed a single, integrated solution to streamline custom app development, make production simple, and centralize management across their entire portfolio of mobile apps. That’s exactly what the AVAI Mobile Platform was built to do.”

AVAI created a mobile platform that lets companies build and manage their mobile apps without developers. But AVAI also offers customization services to its customers.

C3 Presents other events include the Austin FOOD & WINE Festival, LouFest Music Festival, Music City Food & Wine Festival, Wanderlust Yoga & Music Festival and more. C3 books and promotes more than 1,000 concerts in arenas, theaters, casinos, and clubs across the US.

AVAI, a privately-held company, has created a platform that has been used to create more than 750 mobile applications.


  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
