Temporary Map Pins

Melbourne International Comedy Festival is on at the moment and when you open Google Maps in Melbourne CBD, you can see all the temporary venues and the map is covered in little Melbourne International Comedy Festival markers. They're showing up in the same way that major tourist landmarks etc. show up and I've never searched for any of these venues before. Does anyone know how to do this? We'd love to do this for our festival too!

This kind of indication of festivals or special events has nothings to do (and can't triigered yet) through GoogleMyBusiness.

It's a feature of GoogleMaps and such event related labels will created directly by Google based on sourse they know but do specify from where.

 

I asked some times ago in the Maps Forum and Google did not decover me the sources from where they extract the information to create event related labels.
