The weekend music festival is one of the first in the UK to use mobile ticketing. To buy tickets fans simply log on to new mobile ticketing website and pay for their tickets using a credit or debit card and have them delivered immediately to their mobile phone.
Festival goers can choose to receive all tickets on one phone or, for those buying multiple tickets, to have them delivered direct to their friends’ mobiles. Unlike traditional ticketing services tixmob charges no costly delivery fees. You simply pay the face value of the ticket plus a nominal processing charge and tickets will be available right up until the final minutes before the event starts.
Penny Kemp , Marketing Director at Big Green Gathering said, “Festival goers who come to Big Green Gathering will be delighted that we are going mobile. Mobile ticketing reduces the environmental impact of the festival and is just another small step on the road to becoming the most environmentally sound entertainment event in the UK.”
Big Green Gathering will take place from 1st-5th August, 2007 in the Mendip Hills, Somerset and has grown out of the original Green Gatherings and the Green Fields of Glastonbury Music Festival.
Ramesh Kumar, business development director, tixmob, added, “Having fun shouldn’t be hard work so we set up tixmob to provide easy, reliable and affordable access to gigs and events. 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 boutique festivals like Big Green Gathering deliver tickets affordably and promote their event.”
