    Abstract

    Until the development of the Kulitta.com system, there was no central place for the people of Southampton to find a daily list of music events happening in town. Kulitta gathers data from Soundcloud, Facebook and ticket websites and enables users to browse current music events by time and city in the UK. Using data mining, namely the Kmeans clustering algorithm on genre information for each city, it is possible to discover genre clusters within and between cities and identify dissimilarities too. The paper describes the data science process taken to develop the application. The database currently accounts for 90K artists, 1M tracks, 500K music events. The presentation will address the potential impact this could have on the UK independent music industry.
