Ticketmaster Switzerland today announces an exclusive partnership with Estivale Open Air Festival, a rock music festival held in Estavayer-Le-Lac, Switzerland.
Ticketmaster will provide “state-of-the-art” technology for the festival’s ticketing requirements in the lead up, and throughout the six-day festival.
More than 40,000 rock fans visit the lakeside festival every year, considered one of the most beautiful music festivals in Switzerland. The annual festival has seen the likes of Beth Ditto, Patti Smith and Ms Lauryn Hill grace its stages, alongside renowned homegrown Swiss acts.
Nicolas Bally, Director of the Estivale Open Air, said: “This partnership with Ticketmaster Switzerland enables us as a medium-sized festival to access the best ticketing solutions, otherwise only available to large players. The Ticketmaster team will provide our fans a superior level of service, and the support we need to strengthen our position in the market.”
George Egloff, Managing Director of Ticketmaster Switzerland, said: “The Open Air “Estivale” is a pearl in the Swiss festival market and just gets better year after year. With over 40,000 music fans at the beautiful Lake Neuchâtel, Nicolas Bally and his team have established a fantastic event. At Ticketmaster, we look forward to contributing to the further development of this one-of-a-kind festival.”
This new partnership will see Ticketmaster Switzerland expand its business in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Ticketmaster Switzerland also exclusively tickets Openair Frauenfeld, Europe’s largest hip-hop festival.
