Pollstar (10/19/23) Pittman, Sarah
Independent music ticketing platform DICE marked its official Canadian launch in Toronto on Oct. 19, and announced a series of partnerships and its first Canadian hire. Those partners include Collective Concerts, which a DICE release hails as “Toronto's largest independent concert promoter that has worked with a notable roster of artists like Mitski, Japanese Breakfast, Fleet Foxes, Slowdive, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Big Thief, Broken Social Scene, Faye Webster and more.” DICE's other partners include Transmit Presents, The Garrison, Baby G, Not Dead Yet, Soluna, Prepare the Ground and South Paw. “Toronto is the perfect stage for DICE's Canadian debut,” declared DICE President Russ Tannen. “With our new partners, we can bring fans in Canada the shows they love with an easy, innovative and transparent ticketing experience that was designed for them.” DICE named Dave Lock its first Canadian hire as Director of Venue & Promoter Partnerships, bringing more than 15 years of experience in Toronto's music industry. “[DICE's] fan-first app and discovery features are game changers that almost every promoter and venue owner I've worked with over the past 15 years have been asking for,” Lock stated. “I'm thrilled to be leading DICE's expansion into Canada and can't wait to see how this transforms an industry that has been in desperate need of innovation.”
