Building the beat in the dance music scene

Ticketfly

Jun. 21, 2017

Last month, we officially announced that Wynn Las Vegas’s four premier clubs— XS, Surrender, Encore Beach Club, and Intrigue—are the latest dance behemoths to join the Ticketfly platform. Today, we’re delighted to add the iconic Club Space in Miami to the list and announce that Ticketfly now partners with more of the U.S.-based clubs on DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs list than any other provider. In fact, more than half of the U.S. clubs on the latest list are powered by Ticketfly.

This year, we’re positioned to sell up to three million tickets to dance music events across North America.

“We were impressed with Ticketfly’s software, which has everything we need to build and promote our events in one place, and we’re really excited about how Pandora can help us sell more advance and VIP tickets,” says Adi McAbian, Partner at Exchange LA. “Above all, we recognized Ticketfly’s clear commitment to providing us with great support. Being in the service industry ourselves, this was a clincher for us.”

“We’re incredibly proud that some of the most lauded players in dance music have put their trust in us as a partner,” says Andy Donner, our VP of Business & Corporate Development. “We have deep roots in the dance space and have made supporting our dance-focused venues and promoters an important (not to mention fun) part of our business from day one. Nothing makes us happier than knowing some of the top clubs in some of the world’s top nightlife destinations—LA, Las Vegas, Miami—are supported by Ticketfly.”

Dance music continues to be one of the world’s most popular music genres.

By cementing a leadership position in the center of Las Vegas club life (and by virtue of the fact that we love a damn good beat), we’re now the ticketing and technology provider behind the residencies of some of the world’s most successful DJs. The Wynn Las Vegas resort alone is home to the likes of The Chainsmokers, Avicii, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Diplo, Skrillex, and Major Lazer —a collection of A-list talent representing a third of the dozen top DJs in the world.

Our fully integrated, time-saving platform, innovative marketing technology, and best-in-class service is driving venues and promoters from across North America to partner up with us, and we’re energized by the movement these leading players are creating. “When you sign with Ticketfly, you’re joining a community,” says Ellis Ranko, head of Ticketfly’s dance music division. “You know someone’s always going to answer that email, or pick up the phone. We’ve got your back.”

Part of having the best service is having the best people. Ticketfly recently brought on Steve Kushnir, a long-time and well respected player in the dance music space, to co-lead its nightlife division, doubling down on its commitment to dance venues and promoters.

As part of our marketing offering, Ticketfly partners get custom, best-in-class websites built and powered for them by our talented in-house crew of designers & developers.

Another key motivator is Ticketfly’s focus on innovation. That focus is the force behind our just-announced merger with Eventbrite–bringing together the best technology, team, and services in the live events business–and our industry-leading integration with Pandora, which provides our partners automatic access to nearly 80 million music fans eager to buy tickets.

“These venues and promoters are looking for more than just a ticketing provider,” said Donner. “They want a marketing edge, and that’s something Ticketfly provides with its powerful marketing tools, including a first-of-its-kind integration with Pandora.”

Without lifting a finger, events by these promoters are put in front streaming music listeners who we know love that artist. We’ve already seen amazing success in dance music since launching automated concert notifications on Pandora last summer.
