Who we are
Festicket is the world's largest platform for discovering and booking festival trips.
Founded in 2012 by Zack Sabban and Jonathan Younes, the company is backed by a range of investors including Beringea, Edge, Lepe Partners, ProFounders and InMotion Venture and in 2019 completed the acquisition of multi-award winning Leeds (UK) based ticketing and cashless POS platform Event Genius, and the related Ticket Arena consumer website and brand.
The new joint venture, Event Genius by Festicket, creates an end-to-end platform for organisers and fans alike, providing the most complete offering in the live entertainment industry. The platform brings together technology and expertise including POS and cashless payment services, ticketing, accommodation, travel & packages, marketing, data insights & analytics, access control, fan engagement tools and more to plug a gap in the market that no other organisation has addressed to date.
Together, the company works closely with over 4000 official festival and event partners including Coachella, Tomorrowland, BST Hyde Park, Ibiza Rocks, Motion Bristol and Wales Rally GB, serving a growing community of over 5 million customers.
Alongside its London HQ, Festicket has offices in Leeds, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Berlin, Porto and Nantes.
