                                                                                                Large numbers of websites contain (human-readable) infor-                               mation about scheduled events, of which some may display media cap-                               tured at these events. This information is, however, often incomplete and                               always locked into the sites. This prevents users from creating overviews                               of media associated with an event from multiple websites. We carried                               out exploratory user studies with potential end-users to guide the design                               of a web-based environment for supporting event-based services. Based                               on our results, our goal is to provide support for exploring and selecting                               events and associated media, and for discovering meaningful, surprising                               or entertaining connections between events, media and participants by                               consuming linked data. We assembled a large collection of event and as-                               sociated media descriptions, which we interlinked with the Linked Open                               Data cloud. The dataset is obtained from three large public event direc-                               tories (last.fm, eventful, upcoming) represented with the LODE ontology                               and from large media directories (ickr, youtube) represented with the                               Media Ontology.We present the results from the user studies, the conver-                               sion, interlinking and publication of the data following the best practices                               of the Semantic Web community, and our initial application design.
