The Story behind Festicket

Everything started in April 2011, when Zack, Jonathan and Jerome – long-time friends – wanted to organise a group trip to the world famous festival, Coachella. They asked themselves essential questions: "Should we go camping, or stay at a hotel?", "Is this hostel convenient? Does it provide the best value for money?", "Should we go for the VIP ticket or the General Admission one?", and "Should we book local transportation?". The planning and booking process was painful, time consuming and very expensive!

They didn’t make it to Coachella that year. Instead, they started on a mission: To gather the festival and live music community around a central booking platform to make things more open, aware and connected. After a few weeks of brainstorming (and quite a few Skype sessions), Festicket was born.
