RealMusic Events began as a DIY project back in 2009, founded by husband and wife team, Andrew and Kelly Parsons. They started producing dance events with favorite up-and-coming artists to satisfy their own thirst for electronic music, and after years of passion-fueled growth and a partnership with Ticketfly, RealMusic Events is now Austin’s premier electronic dance music promoter. Today, they’re bringing in internationally-recognized DJs like Paul Oakenfold, DJ Snake, Paul Van Dyk, John Digweed, Eric Prydz, Zeds Dead, Duke Dumont, Seven Lions, and Netsky, supported by top regional acts with solid production.
As a burgeoning local promoter, RealMusic Events needed a technology partner to help drive a dramatic increase advance tickets sales while building their brand among the young consumer audience of electronic music enthusiasts.
