About TIXR

Founded in 2013 TIXR mission is to provide the optimal ticketing experience for fans and promoters.  TIXR was started by a group of friends who love live shows and believe that nothing is better than being there. But in addition to being music lovers— and frequenting live events of all kinds— we’re also technologists. We’d long wondered why the shows were so great… but the ticketing experience was so terrible.

So, we decided to do something about it. We founded TIXR to apply powerful cutting-edge technology to event ticketing, creating the best possible experience for both vendors and audiences, before, during, and after the show.

That means delivering a fun and easy user experience that takes the hassle out of buying a ticket, helps buyers find and experience more of the shows they love, and creates a place where the people who put on the shows and the people who come to see them can all get what they need.
