Needtickets.com, The UK’s First Dedicated Search Engine For Festival and Gig Tickets, Goes Live
Comprehensive ticket portal locates every ticket to any live music event in the UK
Needtickets.com, the UK’s first ticket search portal for live music events on PC and mobile goes live today. Through a network of links and live feeds into all of the UK’s major established ticket providers, Needtickets.com is a one-stop shop for locating tickets, comparing prices and seating types and booking online. Designed to help save time and money, the new portal provides a simple solution to the problems created by the current fragmented ticket distribution system. Through its links with all the major tickets providers Needtickets.com covers virtually all live music events and has more tickets than any other UK site Users can now access at a glance ticket availability for any UK live music event that can be booked online. Thanks to data from all the leading agents uniquely every tour date and any festival can be accessed from Needtickets.com. An event search instantly demonstrates which sites are selling tickets and gives access to the pricing and seating options. When the user finds the event they are searching for, Needtickets.com provides direct links to booking pages.
Needtickets.com users can also access details of forthcoming tickets releases for all major events and a unique ‘Still Available’ guide provides at a glance info for the most popular events including many that are perceived as being sold out. With rapid sales of live music tickets common place information regarding who’s performing where and when can make the difference between being there and missing out. With the Needtickets.com mobile service users can also check what's happening when and where, in any venue, at any time. Users can opt in to the Needtickets.com RSS feeds that provides news of forthcoming events, ticket sales and band news direct to their desktop or social networking page.
Traditional search engines are unable to provide this level of advance information. They also feature un-official ticket agents and services on which tickets are exchanged at a higher value than their original price. Needtickets.com is completely independent, having no affiliations with any particular ticket provider, event provider or venue.
Simon Harper, Founder and Managing Director said, “Needtickets.com enables its users to save time by cutting through the complications of finding a ticket. The ticketing industry operates in a very complex and disparate fashion and finding tickets for music events is often a frustrating and sometimes expensive experience for many. If a ticket agent displays an event as being sold out tickets may be available on an alternative service.
Needtickets.com also enables its users to save money as all the tickets listed on Needtickets are available at their original face value price. Often there is no need to pay more on a ticket exchange service if the event is not sold out. Other savings can be made by easy comparison of booking fees and postal charges. Traditional search engines give no indication of ticket availability and make no distinction between differing types and standards of ticket agents, as a result ticket purchasers can pay more than they need to or use a service that won’t guarantee that they will receive a ticket.
Needtickets.com is driven by client and user demand. Whether people are hunting for that elusive ticket or want to shop around for the best offers Needtickets.com will do it for them. It is the first portal of its kind in the UK and the first one-stop-shop for any music event ticket.”
