Mobile-focused firm Dice has continued its expansion drive by launching its event discovery and ticketing service in France.

The company was formed in London and moved into the US market last September with a launch in Los Angeles.

Dice has now confirmed France as its latest market, with the company announcing in a blog post that it will work with some of the “best artists in the country.” Dice’s recommendation engines will provide French fans with direct access to tickets to shows in Paris.

Dice has signed an exclusive deal with Paris venue Le Consulat and will also provide tickets for gigs from the likes of King Princess, Khruangbin, Anna Calvi and Justice.

Dice chief executive Phil Hutcheon said, according to the Complete Music Update website: “We’re so excited about launching in Paris. We’ve been working on this for a while to make sure it’s perfect for Parisians. The live music scene is one of the most exciting in the world and we’re so honoured to work with some of the most influential players (there).”

Dice last week added Troxy, a venue in east London, to its portfolio. Dice said the agreement makes Troxy the biggest mobile-only venue in the world.
