A new platform launched by Spotify allows for the direct sale of concert tickets to fans. The corporation may eventually extend the service to more nations, although the tickets are currently only available for performances taking place in the US.
The role of ticker seller has been performed by Spotify before. To sell concert tickets through its Live Events Feed, the business already works with Ticketmaster, Eventbrite, and See Tickets. Spotify, on the other hand, is now selling tickets to fans directly and charging a booking fee. Additionally, it is not in charge of choosing the ticket price.
According to what Spotify states on its legal page , it acts as the disclosed ticketing agent for third parties, such as venues, event promoters, fan groups, and artists, and sells tickets on their behalf.
Advertisement Fans can purchase tickets through Spotify, although the service is still in testing. Open an account first in order to purchase concert tickets straight from Spotify. Then you can purchase tickets by going to Tickets.Spotify.com. Tickets are currently on sale for performers like Limbeck, Tokimonsta, and Annie DiRusso.
Additionally, printing tickets is not supported on the website. According to Spotify, customers can pick up their tickets at the venue’s box office by showing their email confirmation and a valid ID. Although it may appear cumbersome, this step aids Spotify in preventing customers from reselling their tickets on the underworld.
To enhance our user experience, we test new concepts and products at Spotify on a regular basis. According to Spotify spokesman Carling Farley, some of those ultimately help to shape our overall user experience, while others just serve as valuable lessons learned. Our most recent test is tickets.spotify.com. At this time, we have no more information to provide about our future plans.
