As Ticketfly diminishes, its events will still be up-for-grabs, but now, they’ll be available on the parent company Eventbrite.
The Ticketfly brand, which was sold to Eventbrite in 2017 from Pandora, is slowly diminishing. By this fall, the app will be gone, leaving fans wondering about events they were interested in or purchased. However, all Ticketfly events will still be available, they’ve just moved to Eventbrite. Ticketfly shows, along with independent festivals like Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful and Afropunk, are still on sale.
“We’ve shared many good times and great shows over the years at Ticketfly,” Eventbrite shared in a blog post, “and together with Eventbrite, we’re thrilled to be powering the world’s independent live music scene, plus millions of other one-of-a-kind experiences you’ll love, from Glass Blowing to Trap Yoga.”
Fans who used to receive notifications from the Ticketfly App can still see upcoming shows via Eventbrite.com or in the Eventbrite App, as well as concert updates from email newsletters or social media. Those who had signed up to receive Ticketfly emails with presale access codes and special discounts will still receive these from Eventbrite. Most importantly, Ticketfly tickets for upcoming shows will still be valid, yet order Ticketfly account and purchase history will only be accessible until the end of the year when the platform is fully shut down.
Last year, Ticketfly was involved in a “cyber incident” which resulted in “the compromise of some client and customer information.” Nearly 27 million users were affected by the hack, revealing their names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers. Then, last November, it was announced that Ticketfly would be shut down amid a merger with Eventbrite.
