Yesterday, Ticketfly announced that they have been acquired by the mega-streaming platform, Pandora. The partnership aims to create the most powerful live event and discovery platform the world has ever seen.
“We are incredibly excited about all the ways that this will help make live event experiences even better for you,” Ticketfly CEO Andrew Dreskin said in a statement. “Together, we will tackle the longstanding problem of event discovery and harness our combined data to help you find out about more great events.”
With 80 million users, this acquisition is sure to be a huge step in the right direction for Ticketfly, who will continue to sell tickets on their site until the platforms merge.
“This is a game-changer for Pandora – and much more importantly – a game-changer for music,” said Pandora CEO Brian McAndrews “Over the past 10 years, we have amassed the largest, most engaged audience in streaming music history. With Ticketfly, we will thrill music lovers and lift ticket sales for artists as the most effective marketplace for connecting music makers and fans.”
This is sure to be an exciting step for the music industry as a whole.
