Shakey Graves and Major Lazer are the First Pre-Event Flip Events at White Oak Music Hall
Newport Coast, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/23/2020 --FlipTix®, the creator of the Flip® platform that allows event promoters to sell new tickets once seats have been vacated, and White Oak Music Hall, the innovator in GRID concerts are thrilled to announce the launch of GRID Flips, where purchasers of GRID tickets for White Oak's upcoming sold out GRID concerts will be able to Flip their tickets if they are unable to attend the concerts.
"Since the start of the pandemic, music fans have had limited options to enjoy live concert events," said Johnny So, co-managing partner of White Oak Music Hall. "Despite that, there is a strong desire for fans to see shows in a responsible way, taking common-sense precautions against the spread of COVID-19. We believe the GRID Concert Series achieves that."
The partnership with FlipTix enables concertgoers flexibility if they can no longer attend a concert. Ticket purchasers will be able to submit their tickets for a Flip through the White Oak Music Hall website, and once a purchaser buys the Flip, brand new tickets will be issued. The original GRID ticket purchaser will get back 85% of their purchase price, and the Flip® purchaser will be able to buy a GRID for the box office price.
"White Oak Music Hall is leading the charge for providing a safe environment for concerts," said FlipTix CEO Jaime Siegel. "A traditional secondary market is not workable for a grid based system, where it is critical to maintain the integrity of a single grid with attendees from the same group. The FlipTix pre-event Flip® product provides fans the flexibility that they expect, and will enable White Oak to ensure that its limited capacity facility is full, driving revenue from food and beverage sales during the concerts. FlipTix will be the only authorized way for WhiteOak Grid concert purchasers to sell their space if they cannot attend a show."
In today's environment, the health and safety of concert attendees is of the utmost importance. FlipTix provides a secure platform that ensures consumers get authentic tickets, while also supplying a safe and contactless transactional environment. The White Oak Music Hall Flip exchange will be live this week, in advance of the upcoming Shakey Graves shows on October 23 and 24 and the Major Lazer shows on October 26. More GRID concerts are coming, and will be Flip® enabled.
