With summerâ€™s injection of live entertainment just around the corner, Seatwave, Europeâ€™s favourite fan-to-fan ticket exchange, can reveal that savvy fans looking for great deals on last minute tickets are finding them online.
Over the weekend, more than 600 tickets for more than 30 of the UKâ€™s hottest summer events were available on Seatwave below face value. Contrary to popular demand, Seatwave is proof that fans can secure tickets to their chosen event quickly and securely without paying a premium or having to wrangle with touts outside the gate.
Kylie, Elton John, Bon Jovi are just a few big name events listed for up to Â£20 less than the original selling price. Fans of Radiohead could save Â£10 on tickets and lucky Westlife fans were picking up tickets for around Â£30 less.
For those looking to fill their weekends with festival fun, T in the Park, Isle of Wight and Hard Rock Calling were available for up to Â£20 less than face value. And for those with weather worries, tickets for Exit festival, in Serbia, and Benicassim in Spain were going cheap too.
James Burgess, Chief Marketing Officer, Seatwave said,
â€œThis is a prime example of what weâ€™ve been saying for a long time. A free and open secondary market drives prices down, and so really benefits fans.â€
