Front Gate's U.S. clients include Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Electric Daisy and Austin City Limits.
Live Nation is targeting further growth of its European festival business with the U.K. launch of its white-label ticketing solution company Front Gate Tickets.
Acquired by Ticketmaster in June 2015—alongside the acquisition of DIY ticketing and marketing platform Universe—Front Gate is one of the leading end-to-end festival ticketing providers in the U.S., with Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Electric Daisy Carnival and Austin City Limits Music Festival among its clients.
Since its formation in 2003, the Austin, Texas-based company has powered almost 20 million ticket sales, activated over 6 million RFID wristbands and in 2014 processed over $300 million in sales, according to figures released by Live Nation at the time of its acquisition. Prior to that, it was jointly owned by AEG and Lollapalooza promoter C3 Presents, which was itself brought under the wing of Live Nation in 2014.
