FastBroadcast-CalendarFastBroadcast is specially optimized to publish Calendars for dance and spiritual events like partys, concerts, workshops, retreats, lessons etc.. The Events are stored at the server where the component requests records for a specific datapool like dance and spirit and or a specific scene like salsa, tango, meditation, yoga, science.

You can setup the component to request specific information for a region with geocoordinates or the name of a city. So for example it is easy to build up a Calendar that shows the events of the spiritual-scene in Hamburg or just a part of it like yoga or meditation.

For creating and editing events there is a special application on you can download and use for free. Organizer and teacher can use this tool to publish their events to a great community.
