FlipTix® Partners with KAABOO as Ticket Resale Partner for Inaugural Event in Texas

Newport Beach, CA, May 01, 2019 –(PR.com)– FlipTix, the only ticketing platform allowing ticket holders to “Flip” their ticket throughout the course of an event, has signed an exclusive 2019 deal with KAABOO Texas. The three-day music, comedy, food and art experience is scheduled for May 10-12, 2019 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, located in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

Music headliners at KAABOO’s inaugural Texas festival include The Killers, Lionel Richie, Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sting, Little Big Town, The Avett Brothers, Black Eyed Peas, Lauryn Hill, Ludacris and Flo Rida. Last September, FlipTix served as the official provider of ticket flips for KAABOO Del Mar in San Diego, the live music, art, comedy and culinary experience founded in 2015.

In addition to the music line-up at KAABOO Texas, comedy performers will include Dennis Miller, Brad Garrett, Demitri Martin, Whitney Cummings and Jim Breuer.

With FlipTix, ticket or wristband holders pre-register through the app by entering their festival-issued wristband number to easily allow for an on-site “flip.” Those who leave the event early, drop off their wristband at a FlipTix booth located by the festival exit. FlipTix will scan the wristband barcode which then notifies prospective buyers outside the venue that a “flip” is available. Prices for buyers are determined by the time remaining in the event (and other variables). Sellers receive remuneration in the form of cash, credit, merchandise or gift cards.

KAABOO Texas will be second consecutive weekend FlipTix will be offered at Dallas-area events, following “Off The Rails” Country Music Festival, May 4-5, at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

“It’s a Dallas-Fort Worth takeover for us,” said FlipTix CEO Jaime Siegel. “Whether it’s at Off The Rails or KAABOO Texas, FlipTix provides the only legal way to sell or buy a ticket once the event is underway.”

Anyone interested in receiving ticket alerts can download the FlipTix app and select the heart icon for the specific event to receive push notifications when a flip becomes available. Buyers who purchase a ticket through the app simply stop by a FlipTix booth outside the festival entrance to pick up their activated wristband.

“We look forward to hosting our inaugural event in Texas at AT&T Stadium this month.” said KAABOO’s Chief Brand Officer Jason Felts in a statement. “With hospitality and guest service as a priority, it is important to us that as many people as possible have the opportunity to enjoy the KAABOO experience. FlipTix provides an additional and alternative way to purchase a pass.”

FlipTix® Reaches Exclusive Agreement with Danny Wimmer Presents

Newport Beach, CA, May 01, 2019 –(PR.com)– FlipTix, the ticketing app allowing ticket holders to “flip” tickets throughout the course of an event, has signed an exclusive partnership with Danny Wimmer Presents (DWP), producer of 14 annual rock festivals. The agreement makes the proprietary ticket flipping option available for DWP concert events beginning with Sonic Temple, the three-day festival at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, May 17-19.

Headlined its inaugural year by System of A Down, Disturbed and Foo Fighters, Sonic Temple will replace Rock on the Range, a festival previously co-owned between Danny Wimmer Presents and AEG Presents.

“FlipTix provides benefits for both the festival producers and fans,” says SVP of Event Management at DWP, Brandy Blaylock. “Getting more people into the show is good for everyone.”

Using FlipTix, ticket holders who exit prior to the end of an event simply provide notice through the app that they have left the venue, and new fans are notified that a Flip is available. Prices are set based on the amount of time remaining (and other variables). Sellers receive remuneration in the form of cash, credit, merchandise or gift cards after their ticket is flipped. Buyers get a digital ticket delivered to their phone, then either pick up an activated wristband from a FlipTix location on site or use the digital ticket for entry, depending on the event.

“Three-day festivals are the perfect environment for our ticketing platform,” says FlipTix CEO Jaime Siegel. “The dropoff at three-day festivals is statistically higher than two-day events. Partnering with an inaugural event that will be compared to Rock on the Range will undoubtedly bring out everyone’s best. We can’t wait to be a part of that.”

A rapidly emerging player in the large-scale ticketing resale industry, FlipTix has worked recently with national music festivals such as the KAABOO-Del Mar Festival in San Diego and Buku Music + Art Project in New Orleans. Both festivals sold out, positioning FlipTix as the only way to legally resell and purchase festival tickets. At Buku, registered users with FlipTix totaled 25 percent of the entire ticketed audience.
