The new signings include 12 venues, five festivals, a promoter and a professional sports team spanning seven states in the South, according to the announcement. The company attributes the “unprecedented run” to the success of Memphis in May’s Beale Street Music Festival, and coming on the heels of its addition of Jam Productions, and New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge to Ticketfly’s client roster.
The signings shore up Ticketfly’s presence in the South and Southeastern markets as well as key music centers of New Orleans (Civic Theatre, Joy Theater) and Nashville (Mercy Lounge, Cannery Ballroom, High Watt).
“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,” said Bryan Bailey, Principal Partner at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans. “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.”
Ticketfly CEO and co-founder Andrew Dreskin added, “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.”
