The difficulties of arranging accommodation and transfers for a trip they planned to the Coachella festival in California inspired friends Zach Sabban, 32, and Jonathan Younes, 32, to start this business in 2012. They have since secured £7.5m from investors such as Lepe Partners to develop their online platform, which sells tickets and packages to more than 1,000 festivals worldwide. Festicket also reviews festivals and produces an online magazine to create a one-stop-shop for its 2.5m members. The magazine has increased traffic to the site, helping to boost 2016 sales, which represent fees, to £16m. This year the London company opened offices in Germany and the Netherlands.
