Local business, Sephone Interactive Media, has updated and expanded the AFF mobile APP aimed to help 2015 American Folk Festival attendees navigate this year’s Festival easily and “paperless.”

The American Folk Festival app features the following:

  • Complete Artists information
  • Scheduled times of Performances
  • Maps of Stage and Venue Locations
  • Ability to take photos and share with other Festival Attendees

If someone would prefer not to download the app, Tablet and SmartPhone users can still go to the Festival website (, which is responsive to all web browsers.

This APP is the Official APP of the American Folk Festival, Sephone Interactive Media has been the creator of the APP and the website from the beginning in 2011. And since 2011, there have been annual updates and enhancements.

“This is our latest version of the American Folk Festival APP. It puts information about our Festival right at your fingertips,” says Justin Russell, lead developer at Sephone and veteran Festival volunteer.  “If there is some change in the location or time of an event, the APP will update itself, so unlike paper schedules, it is up to the minute information and always with you.”

This year’s APP includes automatic alerts, notifications from the Festival with news and updates. Notifications will also show festival-goers, who is currently performing on the stage where they are and provide a chance to see when the artist will be performing next over festival weekend.

Russell adds, “We love developing these kinds of tools for businesses, organizations and the region as a whole. We’re excited to add new features as more people use the American Folk Festival APP, and we can’t wait to work on more projects like it in the future.”

Sephone Interactive Media is a Bangor-based web and moblle development company, helping businesses and people use technology to grow and increase efficiency.
