A number of new speakers were last week added to the line-up for the previously reported MusicTank Think Tank event on ticketing, which will focus on both innovations in the primary ticketing market, and the continued issues surrounding ticket resale services.

Now confirmed to speak are Christiaan Munro from direct-to-fan company Sandbag, who will present a case study on the ticketing of Radiohead’s recent world tour, its aims and the lessons learned, and Songkick’s Dan Rogers, who is in charge of the gig data company’s new Detour crowdfunding project. They will contribute to the debate on innovations in the primary ticketing market.

Meanwhile on the secondary ticketing front, Ben Turner, co-chair of the Association Of Independent Festivals, Richard Marks, founder of ethical ticketing exchange Scarlet Mist, and Caitlin Graham, Policy Advisor at Which?, are now all set to join the debate, following a keynote from Aline Renet of PRODISS, the trade organisation for the French live music industry that successfully pushed for legislative change in France that gives promoters more control over their tickets.

This will all take place in London on 5 Dec from 5.30pm – 9pm. Info via this link.
