Ever been ripped off by secondary ticketing?

FanFair alliance are asking you to share your experiences of so called secondary ticket sites
Elliot Ryder | Latest News

Have you ever been priced out of a ticket to see your favourite band or artist? Well, FanFair alliance are encouraging those who have fallen victim to secondary ticketing prices to take part in a brand new survey.

The survey, provided by consumer advice company Which?, asks gig and event goers to relay their experiences of using so called secondary ticketing sites such as Viagogo, Get Me In!, Seatwave and Stubhub.

The survey takes on average five minutes to complete and can be found here.

Information harvested from the survey will go toward an extensive report on ticket resellers. Once completed, the report will be presented to the Competition and Marketers Authority amongst other consumer organisations.

Launched in July 2016, The FanFair Alliance comprises of members of the music industry working together to help bring an end to large scale online ticket touting. Earlier in the year the alliance published its own 10 step guide to beating touts while also calling on the government to address failings in the industry.

Following extensive scrutiny to tighten measures, the government’s culture, media and sport committee has hosted a number of evidence sessions on ticket abuse, with proposed legislation changes set to target the use of bots by handing out unlimited fines.
