Many people like the idea of seeing their favorite bands at a festival but aren’t too keen on the hassle of organizing the trip. We’ve already seen startups such as Very help take the stress out of slumming it in a field with one-hour deliveries of fresh clothes, and now Festicket aims to do for festivals what package tours have done for holidays abroad.
Based in the UK, the site handpicks festivals from around the globe and searches for the best prices on travel and accommodation for the trip. Also included are extras such as free food and drink, as well as access to premium festival offerings like mobile charging, warm showers and pre-built tents. These packages are offered for a single price and can be easily booked through Festicket, rather than through multiple vendors. The site hosts a wealth of information about each festival – including line-ups, reviews and related Soundcloud playlists – to help customers decide if the festival is for them. Once booked, Festicket sends a complete itinerary of the trip in an email, which contains all of the information they will need when travelling or checking into their hotel.
Although music festivals are already big business, Festicket hopes to open up the events to demographics who aren’t too keen on leaving behind their home comforts. One to replicate in your part of the world?
