Music festivals these days are big business. No longer simply a gig in a field, they are now all about the whole experience and there are seemingly more and more popping up all the time - from small boutique festivals to the larger ‘something here for everybody’ affairs. Throughout Europe festivals are being held all year long, not simply during the supposed peak summer months. When it comes to attending one though, although buying the tickets is usually first on the agenda, there are a whole host of other things that have to be considered. Will you need to bring your own tent? Do you fancy staying in a yurt this year? Or are you ‘over’ camping and simply have to have a hotel bed to fall into at the end of your festival day. Whatever the case may be, planning your trip can take an age and real excitement and anticipation about the event itself never really sets in until it’s all organised and booked. Well, that’s all about to change thanks to our latest Startup of the Week.
Festicket is a one stop hub where festival goers can book their trip in its’ entirety - from the festival ticket itself through to travel and accommodation and any other little necessary add-ons. With a range of festival packages on offer and a one-click booking system, the whole thing couldn’t be easier and more straightforward.
The best thing about Festicket though is the personal touch. All festivals that are featured and advertised on the site have been attended by the Festicket team and are recommended thanks to their own personal first hand experience. This adds a real sense of credibility to the festivals featured and will surely help them build their own Festicket community.
Featured festivals detail everything from local recommendations through to tips and advice in the FAQ section. To get you properly in the mood, the site also has an integrated Soundcloud feature so you can have a little listen to the festival lineup while you browse. What could be better than that!
We might all be pretty competent these days in booking our travel, trips and events online, however when something comes along which makes the whole thing just that little bit easier still and even more efficient, it’s got to be a good thing. Festicket - you rock!
