California is known for its warm weather, lavish lifestyles, and booming technology industry. A state that encapsulates everything into a culture that many want to experience. From Northern to Southern California, festivals are continuously being held year-round and people from all over the world travel to partake in these events. Out of the multitude of festivals held in California, we have our sights set on 3 of the greatest: Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival, BottleRock Napa Valley, and Outside Lands Music and Art Festival. Each of these festivals are individually unique and offer a variety of artists to suit the musical tastes of any patron.
Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival | April 12–14 + 19– 21, 2019
Since 1999, the Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival has captivated audiences across several stages. This 2-weekend, 3-day event, has hosted over 60+ artists and will expand to over 100+ artists for its upcoming 2019 festival. With life-size art sculptures, bohemian fashion, and various types of foods, Coachella brings all types of entertainment to the desert. This ultra-popular event usually sells out for both weekends. But there is still hope for eager patrons who are interested in going. By signing onto their waitlist, event goers are given a second chance to get their hands on a ticket.

Festival Ticketing Success
As a ticketing platform, we have experience in providing solutions to multiple industries, festivals being one of those. We at VBO Tickets have worked with local and global festivals to help sell out their events and provide them with festival specific features. Functionalities such as offline scanning helps gate management and check-in without internet access. On a global scale, our ticketing software aided the 2019 Buju Banton Festival held in Kingston, Jamaica. 36,000 people attended, making it the largest sold-out event in that region. Locally, we work with San Jose Jazz, a nonprofit organization who hosts two annual festivals during the winter and summer. Both of these festivals combined, host 100’s of artists and bring in crowds of over 10,000+ people who filter in and out of different venues to see their favorite singers perform.
