Boom Festival in Portugal has announced a partnership with TicketSwap, Europe’s leading secondary ticketing marketplace.

The partnership includes a deep integration with Weezevent, TicketSwap’s ticketing company, which allows TicketSwap to void sold tickets and issue new ones to buyers. Fans can buy and sell quickly and easily with this Secure Swap integration, which also gives the festival organizer visibility.

The collaboration marks TicketSwap’s first foray into the Portuguese market, following recent launches in Italy and Brazil.

We are delighted to be working with Boom Festival. The event is spectacular and people travel from all over the world to be there. We are very pleased to provide a safe and transparent way for fans to sell their tickets at a fair price.

TicketSwap have been expanding at a pace. We have set up an office in Brazil, launched in Italy, and we’re hiring our first local staff in the UK, Sweden, and Germany. It’s great to have such a prominent partner for Portugal as we continue on our mission to be the experience platform that every fan loves. – TicketSwap CEO Hans Ober

The event, which had been postponed in 2020 and 2021, has been extremely popular on TicketSwap, with nearly 4,000 people registering for tickets and nearly 500 tickets being sold in the first three days.
