They are joined by Senthil Chidambaram, founder and CEO of EDM news website Dancing Astronaut, as the event management and discovery platform plots further expansion into ticketing for dance music venues/nightclubs.

“We’re excited to further our commitment within the dance music market and extend our proven success in dance music festivals to nightclubs and venues,” says Greg Patterson, Eventbrite’s director of music and live events.
