Fatsoma

Fatsoma is the world’s first social ticketing platform, changing the way people discover events. Users can browse Fatsoma for the UK’s biggest and best nights and festivals and buy tickets in advance. All the top UK promoters, venues and festivals including Propaganda, Revolution & Bestival are listing their events on Fatsoma.

Fatsoma was established in 2006 by Paul Stacey, Ben Taylor and Chris Pearson with the vision to become the best way for friends to discover and organise events with their friends, and ultimately sell more tickets for promoters. The social platform allows clients to harness the power of fan-to-fan promotion to push events to wider audiences through using the following tools, each one innovated by Fatsoma:

  • The Fatsoma group portal allows customers to organise a party at any event and invite all their friends, instantly notifying each other if they’re interested or buy tickets.

  • 42,000+ and growing UK rep network to promote events to their friends.

  • Full Facebook integration, updating customers’ status when they buy a ticket.

  • Branded box offices (e.g. detonateevents.fatsoma.com)

Other features include:

  • Streamlined entry systems through an advanced barcode scanning application
  • Media partnerships to maximise event exposure
  • Advanced staff management
  • Custom data collection
  • Full website design & build (e.g. www.garlandsonline.com)
