NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) – TickPick, the no-fee ticket marketplace that is transforming the industry, announced Tuesday (June 4) that it has partnered with We Fest and Riot Fest to become the Official Secondary Ticket Marketplace for both events.
This year, We Fest, which is a three-day camping event taking place August 1-3 at Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minn., will be headlined by country music legends Keith Urban and LeAnn Rimes, in addition to performances by Chris Stapleton, Brooks & Dunn, Billy Currington, Jake Owen, Jamey Johnson, Big & Rich, LANCO, Walter Hayes, Jimmie Allen, Dylan Scott, Tyler Rich, Adam Doleac and Kelleigh Bannen.

“For country music fans, WE Fest is a can’t miss event year in and year out,” said TickPick’s VP of Business Development Paul Jones. “TickPick is thrilled to partner with such a prestigious event and give fans across the country a more improved ticket buying experience than ever before.”
“In addition to WE Fest, we’re also partnering this year with Chicago’s Riot Fest as its official secondary marketplace,” added TickPick co-founder and co-CEO Brett Goldberg.
“We made a major splash in the concert and festival space last year in replacing StubHub as the official secondary marketplace of Firefly Music Festival, [and] we saw a significant opportunity to expand our presence in the festival space and bring transparency and no fees to other notable festivals. These partnerships are just the beginning for TickPick, with many others on the horizon,” he added.
Over the last year, TickPick has also partnered with America East Conference, Big South Conference, Colonial Athletic Association, Western Athletic Conference, Jamaica Classic Basketball Tournament, wrestling icon Ric Flair and the Maxim Pregame Experience, among other properties.
