Ability to add a band twice to the same concert
i.e. when a band plays two sets the same day of a festival. Currently it only counts as seeing the band once.
While it’s possible to add a band to a concert multiple times currently, it doesn’t function the way you would expect (as some people have pointed out in the comments).
In particular, if you add the band twice, it still only counts as seeing them once in your stats. There are also some other minor things like when you mark one of the instances seen/unseen it automatically marks all instances for that band.
This is on our roadmap to fix but since it’s a fairly rare situation it’s pretty low on our list at the moment behind things like data cleanup, etc.
Thanks for surfacing this idea/bug!
As far as I can see you can add a band twice to the same concert, but on your profile it still counts it once in the Top Bands section. For example, I saw Canshaker Pi twice at Best Kept Secret Festival, which adds up to 11 times. However it says I've sen the band 10 times: https://www.concertarchives.org/teunversteeg/bands/canshaker-pi--2
This feature exists! I suggested it a few years back, and my lovely friend who runs the site decided to make it possible :)

Would love to see this feature added! There's quite a few instances where I've seen the same act a few times over the course of the festival weekend if they're playing multiple sets.
Other than creating another version of the event, there isn't a way to add the additional times you've seen an act at one event.

Is this really a common thing? I can see perhaps an acoustic and a live performance on the same day but I'd argue that many would want that to count as one attendance. IMO if I see a band 5 times it means I saw them on 5 different days.
But maybe I'm unaware of how often this happens.
