Asbury Park, NJ, September 14, 2019 --(PR.com
, the ticketing app allowing ticket holders to “Flip” tickets if they leave an event early, has announced that the company has signed a partnership agreement with Sea.Hear.Now
, the two-day music, surf, and art festival taking place oceanside Sept. 21-22 in Asbury Park, N.J.
The festival is officially sold out, making FlipTix one of the only approved ways to obtain authentic tickets.
Tickets are expected to become available on the FlipTix platform after the gates open. As ticket holders inside the venue leave early, wristbands can be Flipped to buyers outside, with prices reflective of the time remaining in the event and other variables. Sellers will receive a monetary reward after a Buyer purchases their unused time. Buyers pick up their new, activated wristband at the official FlipTix tent positioned at the festival entrance on Ocean Ave. Only with FlipTix can attendees experience the festival for a portion of the event, and there are never any hidden fees.
This year, Sea.Hear.Now will feature Dave Matthews Band, The Lumineers, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and many more. In addition to the music, the festival will host surfer expression sessions and board shaping demos with pro surfers including Mike Gleason, Pat Schmidt and Quincy Davis. Attendees will also enjoy immersive art experiences, delicious regional cuisine from top restaurants, and purveyors along the seaside boardwalk and beyond.
In 2018, FlipTix was named by CNET as one of the Top 10 concert ticket apps
, and was recently featured by the Associated Press
as one of the most innovative ticketing apps in the live event industry. The Newport Beach, Calif.-based company, which has 16 global patent applications on file, is led by co-founder and CEO Jaime Siegel, a former VP of Intellectual Property for Sony, and co-founder President/COO Brian Siegel who previously led a number of Sony’s U.S. business operations and U.S. consumer sales for Lenovo.
Since launching in 2016, FlipTix has partnered with a growing roster of multi-day festivals across the U.S., including KAABOO-Del Mar, Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, KAABOO-Texas, Clusterfest Comedy Festival, BUKU Music + Art Project, Off the Rails Country Music Festival and Sonic Temple.
“We have had Sea.Hear.Now and the amazing teamat C3 Presents on our radar for a while now, so it’s exciting for us to partner with them,” said Jaime Siegel. “Our technology makes it easy for fans to buy and Flip tickets even when events are sold out, keeping more people onsite and creating a better overall experience.”
To celebrate the partnership with Sea.Hear.Now, FlipTix has opened a sweepstakes offering two tickets to the winner. Anyone with the FlipTix app can register and enter to win by “hearting” Sea.Hear.Now on the app’s events listing, which activates ticket and event notifications. The deadline to register is September 18, 2019 and the winner will be notified no later than September 19, 2019.
