Iconic Sydney venue The Roundhouse has today announced a new partnership with Moshtix as its exclusive ticketing partner.
The Roundhouse has been an integral part of Sydney’s nightlife since the 60s, hosting international artists ranging from Bo Didley to Foo Fighters. Locally, the who’s who of talent, from Paul Kelly to Parkway Drive, have also graced the Roundhouse stage during its storied history.
In 2018, The Roundhouse underwent a complete renovation, upgrading to world-class facilities to become a truly multi-purpose venue which has welcomed local legends like Ocean Alley, provided catwalks for the stars of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, staged e-gaming conventions for UbiSoft, and hosted innovative conferences and talks for the likes of Canva, The Iconic, and CSIRO.
As the Australian live entertainment industry looks hopefully towards the future, The Roundhouse is looking forward to a spectacular return to live events. This new partnership will allow The Roundhouse and Moshtix to connect event goers, event organisers, artists and performers alike, to discover and share in the power of live.
With more than 15 years’ experience in ticketing some of Australia’s most iconic venues, festivals and events, Moshtix has been delivering innovative technology for general admission, self-service and white label solutions for event organisers.
Moshtix has developed its reputation servicing grassroots music venues and promoters across a variety of event genres and with first-to-market technologies like its authorised resale platform. Moshtix will now bring its industry-leading expertise to enhance the experience for gig-goers at the Roundhouse now and into the future.
With its mission to ‘Make Live Easy’, Moshtix has continued to innovate, recently launching a new platform for venues and promoters to build and manage their events. This new suite of venue marketing tools and enablement will make ticketing and marketing live events easier, driving greater sales and growth for its venue partners, including Sydney’s Roundhouse.
Commenting on the new partnership, Head of Venues and Events for the Roundhouse, Jason Lyons says,
“Ticketing is a critical element of how we connect with our customers, and in Moshtix we have engaged with a partner that will create a win-win relationship with our clients. This will allow us to offer improved services and lower fees for both event organisers and patrons, support for events with extensive and relevant marketing, and unique content opportunities that enhances Roundhouse’s standing as a substantial venue in the Sydney events landscape.”
Harley Evans, Managing Director of Moshtix, says of the new partnership,
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering with the iconic Roundhouse in Sydney. This beautifully refurbished venue will play a key role in the return to live events for our industry and will showcase why music means so much to so many. It’s our privilege to be working with Jason and his team to create a safe and welcome environment at the Roundhouse and start reconnecting fans with their heroes.”
The Roundhouse are very excited to move forward in this new partnership with Moshtix and bring a showcase of headline acts and to make live easy.
