AXS Signs Exclusive Ticketing Deal with Brushy Creek Amphitheater
Los Angeles, CA – AXS - a global leader in ticketing - and independent promoter, The Directors of Chaos (The DOC), today announced AXS as the exclusive ticketing partner for Brushy Creek Amphitheater; the new 12,000-capacity open-air venue in Hutto, TX. The Floozies took the stage just 30 minutes from Austin, for a soft launch on November 4. The venue now shifts gears to host the Spirit of Orgain (Day 1) (Day 2)– a two-day NEO soul concert playing off December 8-9, featuring the Grammy-Award Winner and Texas native, Erykah Badu plus co-headliners Thundercat, Masego, Hiatus Kaiyote, and GZA.
AXS has served the Austin community as a partner of the longest-running music program in TV history, the PBS and KLRU-TV-produced Austin City Limits for over a decade. Earlier this year, AXS and the iconic Opry Entertainment Group (OEG), announced the expansion of their deal to bring ticketing services to ACL Live at Moody Theater and 3Ten at ACL Live.
“This was an easy choice for us, as AXS not only works with some of the largest entertainment facilities in the world, but understands the importance of building up new venues, both big and small. I have worked with many different ticketing companies over the years and AXS continues to be my favorite,” said Chris Stone, Co-Founder of The DOC.
“It was extremely important to select the correct ticketing partner for this project. We needed the technology and customer service necessary to scale a large amphitheater from the ground up, utilizing multiple scenarios for different event layouts”, said Tim Pioppo, Co-Founder. “ We’re excited to bring the expertise and experience that AXS provides to Brushy Creek Amphitheater and the City of Hutto.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with The DOC, who share our goal of bringing a boutique enterprise approach to experiences in the Austin community and its visitors who come thirsty for live music and stellar service”, said Dean Dewulf, Head of Venues for AXS. “Austin is a vibrant and competitive keystone market, where innovation and convenience are paramount, driving the industry forward."
AXS will equip Brushy Creek Amphitheater with its completely modernized ticketing platform - Apex - to maximize its ticketing business by quickly responding to demand, and AXS Anywhere, the distribution platform that gives venues the ability to leverage official distribution partners to reach fans wherever they are discovering events.
Tickets are available for the Spirit of Orgain on the Brushy Creek Amphitheater website or axs.com.
