Import Facebook events to Bandsintown

I know you can already import/sync your Bandsintown events automatically to Facebook, but I was looking for the exact opposite thing; automatically import your Facebook events to Bandsintown.

    Hey there. I don't know if this helps, but I think Facebook have actually blocked Bandsintown from doing this now. This post I made on their wall on June 18 2018 was responded to with the following. At first I didn't like the auto-post feature. But then I began to work with it, and found it quite handy: write all I needed to write in Bandsintown, go to the 'Imported Events' (unpublished) section in Facebook, quickly add a banner image and Approve it for publishing. Then I found that my Bandsintown events were not feeding through to Facebook's 'Imported Events'. I hope this helps:

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out here. Unfortunately Facebook does not allow applications to pull their events but we are currently working with Facebook to bring back the feature that exports Bandsintown Events to Facebook Events. Regarding events imported into Bandsintown, we import from a number of data sources, including ticketing companies (Ticketmaster, AXS, Eventbrite, Ticketfly, Seetickets and many more), booking agencies, promoters, and venues, to import events that are then published on artist pages and announced to the fans. Thanks!

    Best,
    Alexis Jenkins

    This option is broken. I imported events and can't edit or delete them. So I can't put my own images, description, co-hosts or anything. Busted and left with duplicate events.
