Homerpalooza 101: Fan Tapping Tips

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on and your cell phones ready to light up the night because Homerpalooza has arrived in Springfield!  That’s right the rock fest has begun!

Let’s face it, my friends, this event’s tappables (the fans) are a royal PITA (Pain In The Arse) to find and clear.  Maybe we’ve all just gotten used to some method to “clear all” in a matter of seconds, but for whatever reason, they’re hard to find this time around.   Whether it be in your own town or a neighbor’s town…it just sucks.   So here are a few tips to help you find and clear those rock fans…


As a friendly reminder, the fans look like this…

And they tend to walk quicker than the regular Springfield characters

Tip #1:

Fans gather around the Rock Stage or other venues that host “Jam Sessions”.  You’ll see them congregate in front of the stage, in front of Moe’s or the Kiwk-E-Mart when there’s a jam session in progress.

(And yes this applies to the Simpson house as well, which you’ll unlock as the second prize)

So if you check in front of those areas (or put all three near each other) you’ll clear out a bunch.

Tip #2:

This also works in a neighbor’s town…

Tap on Weird Al.  He’ll start playing the accordion and fans will flock towards him and you can tap away.  Of course, this also involves trying to find Weird Al.

Tip #3:

Via the crafting menu….

CAUTION: BEFORE DOING THIS MAKE SURE YOUR TICKET COUNT IS LESS THAN THE REQUIRED AMOUNT TO LEVEL UP!  If it is more it’ll take your tickets to level up….so watch your ticket count! (and please don’t yell at me if you screw it up…I warned you)

If you open up your crafting menu and tap the GREEN button next to your level up bar (as long as you have FEWER tickets on hand than what’s required to level up)

You’ll get a popup telling you that you do not have enough tickets to complete the action:

If you tap the BLUE Do It Button it’ll take you to where a fan is in Springfield and you can tap away!

Do this repeatedly to clear the last remaining fans in your town.


And that’s it my friends.  A few quick tips to make finding fans in Springfield suck a little less….

  1. I found the easiest way (not necessarily the quickest) is to send one bunch of jammers on an open stage, the fans flock around that one performance instead of being spread between the other five-six…


  2. OMG, thank you for this post!! I’ve been behind for the first time on an event because of these suckers. Now I’m finally able to clear them all!! Catching up fast and hope to not have to spend donuts at the end of this round to get the last item. That sucked!!


  3. The crafting menu trick was the easiest way once you clear all the ones at the jam sessions. Sadly, it is no longer available once you hit the max crafting level. I use move mode now, but the last 1-2 days I haven’t been able to find that last one. I don’t like spending too much time looking for that fan, so I usually give up after a couple minutes without success.


  4. You can also go into the move mode and hide buildings, decorations, e.g. to help you find them easier. Some fans can be in the mountain range.


  5. Another tip with more rock tapped on it then click do it


  6. Very useful tips – a benefit as EA isn’t making this Game App easier (it’s gotten more difficult over the years) – but don’t let this discourage you from having fun!😄
