If you were opening to score tickets for the Secret Garden Party, the U.K. music festival, which is being held July 26-29, can still get tickets via tixmob. Buying tickets from your mobile handset will cost a two percent commission, but that’s far less than dealing with scalpers.
“Having fun shouldn’t be hard work so we set up tixmob to provide easy, reliable and affordable access to gigs and events, said Ramesh Kumar, business development director, tixmob. “We redeem more tickets than any other company in the world so this is an obvious next step for us. Using affordable technology backed up with a powerful online and mobile marketing platform we can help small independent festivals like Secret Garden Party deliver tickets affordably and promote their event.”
The weekend music festival is one of the first in the U.K. to use mobile ticketing. Fans can go to the mobile ticketing Web site, pay for tickets and have it delivered to their mobile phones. Just be sure to bring the handset for admission! Plus the promoters are hyping this as an environmentally sound alternative to paper tickets.
