StubHub has entered into a multi-year agreement to become the Official Fan to Fan Ticket Marketplace of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival to be held June 12-15 in Manchester, TN. StubHub will also serve as the singular destination to purchase Charity VIP Experience Packages that offer fans the best seats at the festival. Proceeds from these packages will benefit the Manchester Arts Center, Rock the Earth, Head Count and Common Ground Relief in 2008. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
StubHub, the nation’s largest secondary ticket company, will also create an oasis for festival goers by hosting the “Karaoke Bar,” where visitors can enjoy an air- conditioned tent complete with a full service bar, lounge seating and many other amenities, all providing a lavish place to carry the day’s festivities into the night. There will also be nightly, live karaoke.
“The pairing of Bonnaroo and StubHub has presented itself as a winning proposition for fans,” said Richard Goodstone, co-founder of Superfly Productions, in a statement. “In addition to helping us fulfill our philanthropic endeavors by selling VIP Packages on their site, StubHub has proven to understand our community by powering the Karaoke Bar on site to enhance the fan experience. Previous collaborations with Superfly for the Vegoose Music and Arts Festival and SuperFly during Jazz Fest Concert Series have been very successful and made adding StubHub to our Bonnaroo Festival partners a comfortable fit.”
