What's the story?
TicketWeb was created in the US by a small group of music fans who wanted to build a truly DIY ticket site dedicated to shining a light on the freshest emerging talent.
In 1999, TicketWeb launched in the UK, in the offices above the now legendary Brixton Academy. Word spread and TicketWeb soon became the ticket seller of choice for independent promoters and venues on both sides of the Atlantic.
Two decades later and we’re still proud to be part of that scene but now we also work directly with the artists who fill those venues to make it even easier for real fans to get tickets to their shows.

Our brand new video series
In April we launched a new video series called Ticketmaster Homecoming which features favourite artists exploring their home cities and the music venues that have defined their careers.
In the first video Fenne Lily explores her home city of Bristol and the music venues that make it special – like the Thekla. You can also see the band Bullet for My Valentine return to Cardiff and talk about the gigs and venues that shaped them.
Ticketmaster Homecoming offers exclusive insight into the makings of some of the world’s most exciting artists, delving into the spaces that have inspired and cultivated their sound and performance. Watch the whole series on the Ticketmaster Blog.
