Did you know that you can get a subscription for women’s razors? Bacon? What about pickles? (Sign me up!) Subscription-based companies like Birchbox, Hello Fresh, Dollar Shave Club, and others have grown more than 300% over the past seven years. So in reality, it makes perfect sense for the entertainment industry to develop this in the event space.
Last week, Austin-based company festivalPass launched the world’s first live events subscription marketplace, which provides access to music, film, food and wine, art, sports, lifestyle, and tech and innovation experiences around the globe for one monthly fee with no added ticket fees. You read that right: no need to add an additional 20% of the ticket cost for “processing fees” and all those other fees that online ticketing platforms charge you for.
Members of festivalPass can enjoy over 80,000 live events from the most notable festivals like Coachella and Austin City Limits, to live shows with artists like Dua Lipa, John Mayer, Billie Eillish and more with a unique credit system.
So how does it work? Instead of buying tickets with high transaction fees for concerts and events, festivalPass provides members access to tickets with a unique credit system. The membership includes credits to use for any event or festival, which means they can try as many experiences as they like. festivalPass members pay a subscription ranging from $19 to $99 a month and receive credits to access to thousands of events nationwide.
“Accessing tickets to live events has been a transactional, nonsocial, inefficient experience for decades,” saysfestivalPass Founder & CEO Ed Vincent. “Live events fans can now discover, access and get no fee tickets to over 80,000 live events of all types and sizes through their subscription membership in a community driven, social, frictionless, single source platform that rewards them for their loyalty and participation in the community. The higher tier a subscriber signs up for the lower the cost of the tickets.”
Notable musicians like Still Woozy, Benee, The Head and The Heart, Broods, and Sofi Tukker are just a few of the artists with shows featured on festivalPass.
