“Ticket contests are engaging,” said Jeff Foster, co-founder of Tixie. “Winning creates fan excitement which drives increased ticket sales. What makes Tixie new is that we have launched a national site that offers promoters a single partner to aggregate their ticket contests across Tixie’s web and mobile platforms – bringing national band promotions to local fans quickly and effectively.”

Founded in Portland, Oregon, Tixie offers fans a better way to learn about, share and engage with live music. Music fans bid each day on the shows they would like to see and share their enthusiasm for winning through Tixie’s social networking features.

Tixie is supported by national advertising revenue on its main play page and shares the revenue generated on individual contest pages with bands, promoters, artist managers and venue owners.

“We believe that the concert promotions industry is looking for creative ways to make it fun and affordable for fans to once again enjoy a concert-goer lifestyle. By driving fans to participate in socially engaging game-play – and by providing winnable concert tickets – Tixie is able to build a more committed and more socially-active fan base” said Foster.

Tixie makes concerts better for the artists, the promoters, the venues, and for the fans.
