Village Voice Media Partners with Ticketfly for Events

March 22, 2012

The web and print publications of Village Voice Media curate and produce some of the most vibrant and creative cultural events in America’s largest cities.

Phoenix, AZ, March 23, 2012 -- VVM announced today that it is partnering with Ticketfly to be its exclusive ticketing provider nationwide. Whether it’s a music showcase in New York City, a dining event in Los Angeles, or a beer festival in Ft. Lauderdale, Ticketfly will streamline the process by allowing users to buy tickets from wherever they are—from their phone, from their desktop, from their mobile device, even entirely through Facebook.

“We’re extremely excited about our partnership with Ticketfly,” said VVM president and chief operating officer Scott Tobias. “Our mission is to give our readers and customers a 360-degree experience. Readers can already get great reviews, concert updates, restaurant reviews and critics’ picks; now they can complete those experiences with a ticket purchase on our websites and through our mobile platforms.”

Ticketfly is an end-to-end, cloud-based social ticketing platform. The Ticketfly platform provides integrated ticketing, website, social marketing and analytics tools that create efficiencies for organizers while improving the event discovery and ticket buying experience for fans.

“We’re pleased to partner with the Village Voice to power their social ticketing needs,” said Dan Teree, founder, president and COO of Ticketfly. “Our social and mobile ticketing platform enables Village Voice to promote events and sell tickets in new and powerful ways. And, our Facebook ticketing application will make it easier for fans to buy tickets and share their excitement for events.”

VVM will continue to roll out new local events in coming months, as well as continuing its support for its many existing initiatives: the popular Artopia series, which celebrates the best fashion, design, performing arts and visual media in its communities; music showcases in Denver, Houston and St. Louis; the 4 Knots Music Festival in New York City; and curated food events like Choice Eats in New York and Iron Fork in Dallas, Miami, St. Louis and Minneapolis.

Village Voice Media is the nation’s leading alternative media company, providing cutting-edge coverage of news, food, music, arts and events with daily websites, weekly print newspapers, and a variety of mobile apps in thirteen major American markets.
