AEG and OUTBOX ENTERPRISES have formed a joint venture with C3 PRESENTS to purchase FRONT GATE TICKETS, which specializes in providing innovative global ticketing solutions to music events and festivals, including the COACHELLA VALLEY MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL and STAGECOACH COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL, as well as AUSTIN CITY LIMITS MUSIC FESTIVAL and LOLLAPALOOZA.
"The FRONT GATE acquisition is a perfect complement to our AXS Ticketing company," AEG Pres./Digital, Ticketing and Media BRYAN PEREZ said. "The festival experience is like no other and we believe is best served by a ticketing platform that understands and innovates around that uniqueness. With their large roster of existing festival clients, and now backed by the country’s leading festival promoters, C3 PRESENTS and GOLDENVOICE, FRONT GATE will create a world-class solution for festivals of all sizes, that puts the needs of the fans and promoters at the forefront."
"We have been working closely with FRONT GATE over the years to redefine the ticketing experience for our customers. Their innovation in this space has kept us at the forefront of delivering a unique experience at our festivals," C3 PRESENTS Partner CHARLIE WALKER said.
