Introducing the Festival Finder: first stop for festival discovery with your favourite Spotify artists
Festicket, the world’s largest online booking platform for music festivals, has launched its brand new Festival Finder. The Festival Finder uses your Spotify artists to help you discover your perfect festival in seconds.
By connecting your Spotify account on the Festicket website, the Festival Finder uses your favourite artists to unearth a list of 10 upcoming festivals that suit your music tastes. The Festival Finder benefits from Festicket’s extensive database of festivals, which, when paired with artist intelligence from Spotify, can be used to make a selection that is personalised just for you.
The Festival Finder is specially designed for festival lovers who want to try something new but don’t know where to start. Once you’ve found out which festivals your favourite artists are playing, you can buy your package there and then on the Festicket website. You can even sign up for a waiting list if tickets are not yet on sale, so you can be sure to catch your favourite artists into 2019 and beyond.
Zack Sabban, CEO & Co-Founder at Festicket, says: “We’re delighted to launch Festival Finder, offering music fans the chance to discover the festivals that their favourite artists are playing at this year, and giving them the best possible festival experience.
"We now offer over 1000 festivals on the platform, and we know first-hand how overwhelming it can be when trying to pick out the one to go to. We’ve all been there, sifting through lineup after lineup, encountering names we’ve never heard of."
"Our Festival Finder solves that problem by presenting a tailored list of festivals that best match your listening habits, including some under the radar gems that could soon become your new favourite festival destination.”
Dan Wong, Product Manager at Festicket, says: "This is the beginning of transforming Festicket's extensive catalogue and expertise into an intelligent engine that helps festival goers with their journey of discovery. Our Festival Finder focuses on what people primarily go to festivals for: the music. Expect cleverer and deeper ways to match festivals to personal tastes in future!"
