ticketscript enables Field Music to sell gig tickets direct to their fans via their Facebook fan page

London, Tuesday 24 April 2012– ticketscript, European market leader in online, mobile and social ticketing solutions has announced today that they are working with the band Field Music to provide Facebook ticketing.

The music industry is continually evolving with the digital age, as bands take advantage of non traditional channels to distribute music (both physical recordings and downloads) directly to their fans. Sunderland based brothers David and Peter Brewis, better known as Field Music, have taken this a step further, introducing direct to fan ticketing on their Facebook fan page for their 12 date October tour to support their new album Plumb. Direct to fan ticketing provides Field Music a way to build a stronger relationship with their fans while continuing to build their brand and fan database, which they can then use to communicate upcoming gigs, merchandise, new releases and events. 

Field Music’s UK tour starts on 3rd October and tickets are available to buy now for their gigs at www.facebook.com/fieldmusic.

Frans Jonker, Chief Executive Officer ticketscript, comments, “The music industry is changing and bands now have the ability to build closer relationships with their fans through direct to fan ticketing.  ticketscript has helped Field Music to take more control of their ticketing allocations, promotion and build their brand and fan base in parallel.”

ticketscript is currently enabling over 30,000 events throughout Europe to use their plug-and-play ticketing tool to sell tickets and promote events. Find out more about ticketscript’s facebook ticketing app.
