TickPick is taking over as the official resale partner of Firefly Music Festival taking place from June 14-17 in Delaware. The no-fee marketplace is replacing StubHub as the secondary ticketer for the festival that will feature headliners Kendrick Lamar, Arctic Monkeys, Eminem, and The Killers.
“Our selection by Firefly Music Festival is a big deal for us and festival customers because we offer prices and levels of service that are simply better than the competition,” said TickPick CEO and co-founder Brett Goldberg in a release. “The modern millennial-aged consumer wants transparency and simple mobile transactions. We provide both. We do not charge buyer fees and explicitly state all-in pricing, so there are no surprises. Our users appreciate our approach, which allows them to get the festival, concert, or sports tickets they crave at a great price without any hassles.”
As the official secondary ticket marketplace for Firefly Music Festival, and the only authorized third-party ticket vendor for resale, TickPick provides Firefly festivalgoers with a trusted and secure source for great, low-cost tickets. TickPick will operate a “Will Call” booth at the festival as well as offer an allotment of face value festival passes and host attendees at their sponsorship activation on the festival grounds.
A differentiator between TickPick and many other secondary tickets like StubHub, is that company does not charge any fees for buyers, setting it apart from competitive firms that charge steep transaction fees. It also leverages its algorithms to look at the price/value ratio for tickets to offer value grading for buyers so they can get the optimal experience for their money.
“TickPick has quickly become a go-to destination for sports and entertainment fans for event tickets. We’re happy to have them onboard as a partner for this years festival and as another destination festivalgoers can trust for their event ticket purchases,” said Scott Howard, Firefly Vice President of Sales and Marketing in a release.
“This partnership is just the latest TickPick news that shows we’re rapidly moving towards the top of our industry due to our ticket pricing model and refined technology,” added Goldberg. “We’re thrilled to be the official secondary marketplace for Firefly Music Festival, one of the year’s most anticipated musical events.”
Firefly is the East Coast’s largest music and camping festival at Woodlands in Dover, Delaware. The 2018 edition of the festival will also see performances from ODESZA, Lil Wayne, Logic, Martin Garrix, SZA, alt-J, Portugal. The Man, Foster the People, and MGMT. With this new partnership, the Goldenvoice and Red Frog Events event will offer buyers a no-fee way to purchase tickets with only a 10% fee for sellers.
