Given L.A.'s vibrant live music scene and deep history in entertainment and media, we knew it was a market where we could make a big impact. Once the local community got wind of what we could offer, we saw a domino effect of promoters looking for a more progressive provider. We're thrilled with the market response and appetite for change and we look forward to continuing to establish deep roots in the L.A. area.

Mitchell Frank, Owner, Spaceland Productions
The Echo/Echoplex and Spaceland Presents are committed to delivering a seamless, memorable experience for ticket buyers at all our venues and events. Ticketfly has allowed us to embrace the newest technologies and integrate various social media platforms, making it easier than ever for our customers to plan for shows and share experiences with friends and followers.

Jon Halperin, Talent buyer, The Glass House
I LOVE this system more than chocolate, and I f---ing love chocolate! Unlike our previous ticketing company, Ticketfly allows shows to go on sale instantly and allows the venue to add their own information to the show, like photos, links, etc. Editing has been a snap. The support from the staff has been great.
