Ed Vincent is CEO of FestivalPass, a new startup that offers subscriptions to live event ticketing. Here’s how they describe themselves on their website:
festival Pass believes you deserve transparency. We will never add fees at the end of your purchase. Price you see is the price you pay. No added fees AND up to 30% less than you will pay elsewhere. You have an Amazon prime membership to get free shipping and other unique perks. Join festivalPass to get NO ticketing fees and lots of other exciting perks. festival Pass helps you discover events you love and gives you access to thousands of events with a unique credit system.
It’s a cool idea, and FestivalPass has more than 80,000 events on its platform. On this week’s show, I ask Ed about his career history that led him to this point, why subscription models work particularly well for younger generations, how their business model isn’t built on people buying subscriptions and then not using them (like the way some streaming services and gyms work), and a lot more in a very brisk 30 minute chat. We also talk about how FestivalPass is minting an NFT that stands as the coolest idea for an NFT I’ve heard yet thanks to its cool dividends and benefits.
