Big Green Gathering, the festival for ethical music fans 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, taking place from 1st to 5th of August, is one of the first in the UK to use mobile ticketing. To buy tickets fans simply log on to new mobile ticketing website www.tixmob.com and 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 costly delivery fees. You simply pay the face value of the ticket plus a nominal processing charge and tickets will be available right up until the final minutes before the event starts.
Penny Kemp , Marketing Director at Big Green Gathering said, “Festival goers who come to Big Green Gathering will be delighted that we are going mobile. 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.”
