Dice launches livestream ticketing platform

By | Published on Friday 17 April 2020


Ticketing firm Dice has launched a new platform for ticketing and promoting livestreamed shows. Called Dice TV, the company will use its existing discovery engine to highlight upcoming livestreams to music fans, as well as allowing artists and promoters to sell tickets to online events.

“Our mission has always been to get people out more, but we can’t go out”, says Dice CEO Phil Hutcheon. “However, artists have shown how important music and culture is to us all and they inspired us to adapt Dice to this new world. Dice is now truly global and can be accessed anywhere in the world”.

“This is a crucial moment for the live industry to develop a sustainable ecosystem that helps creators and artists thrive”, he adds. “This is just the start – we have a dedicated team on DICE TV and this will grow to be a long-term solution for the industry”.

Dice TV is currently offering tickets for Beatport’s ReConnect II this weekend and The Nations’ Room Service 2020 Festival next weekend. Both are free events, although you can donate money through Dice, which will be distributed to the events’ chosen charities.
