TicketSwap becomes official marketplace partner of ADE

TicketSwap is partnering with Amsterdam Dance Event for at least the next three years. Fans can buy and sell tickets for ADE events at TicketSwap. To celebrate the upcoming edition of ADE, TicketSwap introduces its inaugural podcast series, 'TicketSwap Sessions', that was recorded during last year's ADE and reflects the conversations that take place during the event each year. Starting today, this five-part podcast will bring together industry experts, artists, and passionate fans to delve into the current trends and challenges facing the music and culture industry. The podcast is a platform for insightful conversations leading up to the upcoming edition of ADE.

Collaboration with ADE

As the official marketplace partner of ADE, TicketSwap is suited to cater to ADE's international audience with TicketSwap’s global user base and will ensure a seamless ticket buying experience, allowing fans to purchase tickets directly from event organizers. Additionally, TicketSwap serves as a marketplace where fans can offer and purchase tickets for sold-out events, providing a comprehensive solution for ADE attendees. ADE, which will take place from October 18 to 22 this year, has grown into the world’s largest and most influential club-based festival and conference for electronic music. The organisation devotes itself to stimulating development, innovation and talent, gathering the global industry and laying a foundation for future generations. The shared values make it relevant for TicketSwap to become a partner within ADE’s ecosystem.

Insight into a changing sector

Columnist Ginny Ramkisoen, host of ‘TicketSwap Sessions’, engages in conversation with leading industry figures each episode. Topics such as technology in ticketing, the future of live events and the aspects that make a festival a sold-out success are covered. Some of the guests featured in ‘TicketSwap Sessions’ are Joost Aanen (founder and CEO of Eventix), Tim van der Wiel (founder of GoSpooky) and Hans Ober (CEO of TicketSwap). 

Hans Ober, CEO of TicketSwap: “We are very excited about our partnership with Amsterdam Dance Event, and proud to make it official. To celebrate this, we’ve launched ‘TicketSwap Sessions’ an industry podcast where both industry insiders and music fans gain insight into what the rather complex landscape of the music and culture sector looks’. In the podcast, we take listeners into our world of data and ticketing, and engage in conversation about the future of this industry. Because as Daniel Spadaro, founder of Spadaronews, music journalist and media consultant, says in one of the episodes, ‘Music is changing, the world is changing, something new is coming.’”

The first season of 'TicketSwap Sessions' is now online and can be listened to on Spotify and Apple Podcasts, as well as watched on YouTube.
