Upcoming

Upcoming was an API-accessible events database and calendar. It was acquired by Yahoo in 2005 and retired in April 2013.

Upcoming included information about upcoming events, such as concerts, conferences, art exhibitions, and other social events. Every event was tagged with location and other details, enabling users to view events only in their neighborhood or city, and also to browse events by interest. Upcoming also let users friend each other and provided other limited social networking features. Many event postings on Upcoming were created and maintained by users.

Upcoming faced competition from both local and event sites. Top competitors included Yelp and Zvents.
