The Summer of 2018

For Ticketmaster, the summer of 2018 was incredibly busy. With 26 festivals to manage and over 1,350,000 tickets scanned, the team went above and beyond to deliver an amazing festival experience for fans across the country. They travelled as far north as Inverness, as far south as the Isle of Wight, as far east as Norwich and to Exeter and Swansea in the west ... literally ALL over the UK!
