Following last year’s launch in the US, UK-born mobile ticketing platform Dice has expanded into France.
Launch partners are le Consulat (pictured), a Paris club and creative hub, and Pop-Up du Label, a 200-capacity Paris bar/venue and home of the Pete the Monkey festival. A Dice spokesperson tells IQ the company has a dedicated French team who are additionally spearheading partnerships with other promoters and venues.
Phil Hutcheon, CEO of Dice, says: “We’re so excited about launching in Paris. We’ve been working on this for a while to make sure it’s perfect for Parisians.
“We’re delighted to be one of the first venues using Dice’s mobile-only tickets, and we’re sure there’ll be plenty more to follow”
“The live scene is huge and we’re so honoured to work with some of the most influential players in the world.”
“The live music scene is nothing without the fans, which is why we’ve taken another step to make their gig experience as epic as possible,” a Pop Up du Label spokesperson adds. “We’re delighted to be one of the first venues using Dice’s mobile-only tickets, and we’re sure there’ll be plenty more to follow.”
Upcoming shows on the Dice France app include King Princess, Death Grips, Khruangbin, Anna Calvi and Justice.
