As our friend Ice Cube might say, today was a good day. This morning we announced a record-breaking sixty-day period for the ‘fly in the Southern United States. In just two months, 12 venues, three festivals, one promoter, and one professional sports team joined up with us and we couldn’t be prouder to say “thanks, y’all!” This unprecedented run was catalyzed by the success of Memphis in May’s Beale Street Music Festival this past spring. The notable additions span seven states and make Ticketfly the top provider to independent venues and promoters in the region. The newest partners include:
These signings are an illustration of the relentless momentum for the Pandora-Ticketfly platform, which is connecting venues and promoters with the largest and most engaged music audience in America. This sixty-day streak comes on the heels of adding the legendary Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge in New York City and Jam Productions in Chicago to our client roster. It also follows the recent announcement of the first product integration between our two companies—personalized Ticketfly concert notifications for Pandora listeners. All this good stuff shows that bringing live and recorded music together under one roof is a winning strategy that will help all of you book the right talent, market your events, and build your brands.
We’re proud that with these signings, we’ve not only firmly established ourselves in the South and Southeast, but also in key music markets within the region, like Nashville and New Orleans. This is in addition to our strong presence in other key music markets on the east coast (New York City); on the west coast (Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle); and in the midwest (Chicago). Just over seven years after selling our first ticket, we’ve has gone from underdog to a definitive industry leader across the entire United States. Wow!
Bryan Bailey, Principal Partner at one of our new venues, the storied Civic Theatre in New Orleans, says: “We’ve been following the development and growth of Ticketfly since we opened our doors three years ago and we’re excited to be bringing them on as our ticketing service provider. Their foundation as a software technology company cultivates a proactive, forward-thinking approach to this component of our business, and aligns with our vision to continue evolving to create the best experience for our artists and patrons.”
Our CEO and co-founder Andrew Dreskin marked this milestone with a few words as well saying, “We are thrilled and honored to welcome so many great new venues and promoters down in the South to the Pandora-Ticketfly platform. This announcement is another proof point that a sea change is happening relative to how promoters will market shows in the future.”
