FIREFLY MUSIC FESTIVAL WELCOMES STUBHUB BACK AS THE FESTIVAL’S OFFICIAL TICKET MARKETPLACE IN NEW TWO-YEAR PARTNERSHIP
The Coffee House Presented by StubHub to Feature Jack Antonoff, Silversun Pickups, Atlas Genius and more
DOVER, DE (May 6, 2016) – Firefly Music Festival announced today the return of StubHub, the largest ticket marketplace in the US, as an exclusive festival partner: the Official Ticket Marketplace of Firefly in a two-year deal. As the exclusive ticket partner through 2017, this partnership will offer fans a seamless experience planning, buying and selling tickets and attending the festival through StubHub. In addition, StubHub is the presenting sponsor of Firefly’s acoustic stage and café, “The Coffee House,” with exclusive intimate, trimmed down and unique performances from festival acts and exclusive performances from additional artists, including Jack Antonoff and Silversun Pickups.
As the Exclusive Ticket Marketplace, StubHub will be the only authorized resale platform to buy GA, VIP and Super VIP passes to the festival. StubHub’s FanProtect™ guarantee and customer service track record promises an excellent purchasing experience that aligns with Firefly’s customer satisfaction goals.
“We’re looking forward to working with StubHub again this year to produce an exclusive and memorable experience for our fans at The Coffee House,” says Alex Yount, Sponsorship Sr. Manager of Firefly Music Festival. “Additionally, we’re excited to build upon our partnership over the next two years as StubHub provides our fans a trusted secondary marketplace to buy and sell tickets.”
In addition to unique and intimate performances at The Coffee House, the partnership will also bring exclusive content from The Coffee House performers to StubHub’s social channels with artist interviews and videos for fans, before, during and after the festival. StubHub will also be present with an on-site Will Call to assist any attendees who purchased Firefly passes on StubHub.
“StubHub’s first experience partnering with and activating at Firefly last year proved to be an enormous success on a number of levels,” said Justin Finn, Head of Event Marketing and Sponsorships for StubHub. “Returning to the partnership for two more years was an easy decision. We’re excited to offer fans seamless ticket purchasing and pickup, made possible by this partnership, and an even bigger experience at The Coffee House with incredibly talented artists slated to perform.”
Passes for Firefly Music Festival are still available through FireflyFestival.com at the price of $319 for a four-day general admission pass or $129 for a single day general admission pass. StubHub continued to see steady growth in festival pass demand last year, riding on the significant demand growth of 500% that was witnessed from 2012 to 2014.
