The Witcombe Cider Festival, taking place August 24-26, and Noisily Festival, which is scheduled for July 2019, join a portfolio of summer festivals and events serviced by the ticketing specialist.
These new contract wins coincide with the first-time delivery of its “on sale to on site” service for Sunflowerfest in Northern Ireland. It also marks the first time that TheTicketSellers has provided both the public selling platform and its own custom-built crew and artist management platform, Eventree. 3,000 public tickets were sold for Sunflowerfest, and 900 artist and crew tickets were issued to create the three-day festival, with a team from TheTicketSellers on site in Northern Ireland to support the ingress to the event.
Aaron Cleary, event coordinator at Sunflowerfest, commented: “We first came across TheTicketSellers when they presented at the AIF’s annual conference in 2016. Hearing how Eventree has helped other festivals streamline their operations and reduce admin was really interesting and after an Eventree trial in 2017, it made perfect sense to use all their services including public ticketing, this year, so there wasn’t even a cost to the festival.
“Their onsite team were brilliant, knew exactly what to do and allowed us to focus on other operational and creative elements. We even exported elements from the Eventree system so that an artist’s application feeds in to populate a whole host of data-seats including our website and program, saving a huge amount of time and hassle.”
Mo Jones, director of TheTicketSellers, added: “We work with a number of independent festivals where ticket sale strategy is imperative to achieving the all-important sales. We are super excited to be working with all three events and being part of their success!”
