Through a private-label partnership, Web-based ticketing firm ShowClix has expanded into Australia and is now ticketing some of the country's largest music festivals.

Showclix says it exceeded $7 million in ticket sales in the company's first week of operations in the country, selling 1.8 million tickets in the first 24 hours.

Through a partnership with Australia's GreenTix, Showclix is now ticketing the Pyramid Rock Festival, the Meredith Music Festival, the Rainbow Serpent Festival, and the Great Southern Blues Festival. GreenTix will operate exclusively in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore through the use of ShowClix's private label ticketing system, which offers clients a customizable, independently-branded Web-based ticketing platform.

In conjunction with the expansion, ShowClix launched its new cloud-backed queuing system, which scales in real time according to demand, giving ShowClix the opportunity to handle heavy web traffic and process an unlimited number of ticket orders simultaneously.
