Live firm Kilimanjaro has launched its own ticketing site called The new site will sell tickets for all of the shows and festivals promoted by the company, as well as concerts presented by classical music promoter Raymond Gubbay, which is now a sister company to Kilimanjaro, and there are plans to open up the platform to third parties down the line too.

The site is a UK version of existing ticketing website, launched six months ago by Deutsche Entertainment AG, the German company which took a controlling stake in Kilimanjaro last year. DEAG says that its own ticketing service was responsible for 5% of all online ticket sales for its shows during the first full quarter that the site was operating.

Confirming the launch of the UK service, Kilimanjaro boss Stuart Galbraith told reporters: “This is an exciting development for Kilimanjaro. We have always operated as an independent promoter and allows us to continue to do so and provide fans with tickets directly. We have many exciting projects in place for 2015. It’s a time for growth and investment in our core regular projects whilst looking for interesting opportunities wherever they arise”.

Meanwhile Anthony Findlay, CEO of Raymond Gubbay, added: “We are delighted to be working with our partners DEAG and our UK sister company Kilimanjaro Live on this exciting new ticketing platform, providing a tailored service both for our existing customers and giving a greater reach in to the market place”.
