No Coachella tickets? No problem

YouTube has returned as the exclusive streaming partner for this year’s edition of Coachella festival. The platform is set to introduce a multi-view feature that will enable fans to watch up to four live performances at once. Production will be tailored so that fans can watch up to four of the stages at once on their TVs, while listening to the audio of their choosing. Additionally, YouTube will once again provide six livestream feeds to choose from over the course of each festival weekend. 

Glownet teams up with Mobile Money

Glownet, a provider of experiential digital products across industries such as ticketing, payments and more, has partnered with ATM and transactions company Mobile Money. The partnership will provide Mobile Money’s extended network with access to Glownet’s payments, ticketing and operational product stack, enabling digital wallet solutions for customers in the events, leisure and tourism industries. 

Safety first

Technology start-up TicketRev has attained System and Organisation Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1 Certification. This certification evaluates an organisation’s systems and controls based on standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It assesses the effectiveness of the controls over information security, processing integrity, availability, confidentiality and privacy. TicketRev allows teams to let their fans choose their preferred price for tickets.
