Mobile Ticketing Helps Green Music Festival Go Greener

Big Green Gathering, the festival for ethical music fans, has revealed that it will minimise its impact on the environment by delivering tickets to fans via tixmob, the mobile ticketing service, eliminating the environmental and financial cost of printing and delivering traditional paper based tickets.
The weekend music festival claims to be one of the first in the UK to use mobile ticketing. To buy tickets, fans simply log on the tixmob mobile ticketing website, pay for their tickets using a credit or debit card, and have them delivered immediately to their mobile phone.
Festival-goers can choose to receive all tickets on one phone or, for those buying multiple tickets, to have them delivered direct to their friends mobiles. Unlike traditional ticketing services, tixmob charges no delivery fees. Consumers simply pay the face value of the ticket, plus a nominal processing charge. Tickets will be available right up until the final minutes before the event starts.
Festival-goers who come to Big Green Gathering will be delighted that we are going mobile says Big Green Gathering Marketing Director Penny Kemp. Mobile ticketing reduces the environmental impact of the festival. and is just another small step on the road to becoming the most environmentally sound entertainment event in the UK.”
Tixmob is part of ActiveMedia Technology, which powers the Orange Wednesdays cinema promotion. Tixmob business development director Ramesh Kumar adds:
Having fun shouldnt be hard work, so we set up tixmob to provide
easy, reliable and affordable access to gigs and events. We redeem more

step for us. Using affordable technology backed up with a powerful
