The festival experience platform Festicket announced a multi-year ticketing deal with the beach festival Afro Nation Portugal, adding to its European catalog.
By partnering with Festicket, Afro Nation will be able to use Event Genius by Festicket product set – which Festicket acquired last year – as well as its consumer-facing ticketing platform Ticket Arena. Fans can purchase tickets through Festicket, Ticket Arena, and Afro Nation websites and will have access to travel packages, access control, and cashless payments on the beach. Afro Nation Portugal Director Jason Jennings said the deal “signifies our trust in the Event Genius by Festicket team and platform.”
“It’s great to be able to partner with one supplier for ticketing, travel, accommodation, cashless payments, access control and more,” Jennings said in a press release. “We believe this is the best way to improve the festival experience for our fans; the Event Genius by Festicket platform covers everything.”
Festicket’s CCO Yonas Blay said that they believe that the partnership will “help take this festival to the next level” and the team is “excited to see the full product set in action.”
The popular festival will take place for the second year at the Praia da Rocha beach in Portimao, The Algarve. Music will run from July 17 to 19 and showcase a variety of genres including acrobats, hip-hop, R&B, dancehall, and basement. The full lineup has not been announced at this time.
This is Festicket’s latest partnership, earlier this month, the platform teamed-up with AEG as its official partner for 2020 festivals in the UK.
