Remove the "100 artists" limit during last.fm library scan

The bandsintown app only retrieves the top 100 artists from the last.fm scrobbling library. This is trully limiting the user experience - I have more than 500 artists in my library and because of this 'top 100' limit I trust I miss quite a few concerts in my town...

So please remove (or at least increase) the limit of number of artists retrieved from Last.fm.

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out here. Unfortunately this is a limit on Last.Fm's end, sorry for any inconvenience.

    Best,

    Alexis Jenkins

    This might be the case if you use lastFm's user.getTopArtists service (are you sure you're not seting the limit parameter to 100 though?).

    However using the library.getArtists service will not limit search results to the first 100 artists. see https://www.last.fm/api/show/library.getArtists
