Live Nation’s Ticketmaster UK announced a new two-year deal with independent festival Standon Calling earlier this week. This follows the addition of a fourth day to the beginning of this year’s event, focussed on food rather than music. Ticketmaster will provide Standon Calling with its own branded white label platform through which to sell tickets, as well as offering them through the main Ticketmaster site.

“Working with Ticketmaster gives us the confidence to know that we have access to fantastic marketing reach ahead of the festival, and an experienced team on site at the event”, says Standon Calling founder Alex Trenchard. “Being able to sell our tickets seamlessly through our own branded site is hugely important to us and it’s great to have found a solution that fits so well with that”.

Ticketmaster UK MD Andrew Parsons adds: “This partnership underlines our commitment to working with clients across the board, including independent festivals. Standon Calling has grown from strength to strength over its ten-year history and we look forward to helping them achieve their goal of reaching even more fans going forward”.
