Dreams recently came true for music fans in London. ShowMango a Shoreditch-based startup, offers unlimited tickets for concerts and live music shows for a flat £25/month. We’ve tried it, and it’s great!
We’ve recently heard about them at a startup event held at Google Campus where James Kay, CEO and co-founder, took the opportunity to officially announce the launch of their new service. We had a hard time figuring how that could be real, so we just decided to try it out and subscribed.
We grabbed our first tickets for Sven Vath at The O2, which were on sale for £25+ each. We had a smooth experience and everything worked out as promised. We simply had to mention that we were on the ShowMango list on the door and to show our ID. That was it… we were in!
First thing we did the next morning was to get back to the website to check their upcoming events and grab another ticket. Since then, we’ve attended a few Rock/Indie gigs in Shoreditch and the Dimensions Festival launch party over Easter, all for “free”. Based on the reactions within our team, it’s clear that it’s super addictive.
We caught up with James Kay to know more about it. “Our objective is to give music fans the ability to attend great shows for the price of an affordable T-shirt. We want everyone to get the chance to enjoy the amazing concerts and live music events London has to offer. We priced our service so that anyone could subscribe, no matter how shallow your pocket”, he explained.
You need to be spontaneous if you want to make the most out of it as ShowMango presents events 5 days in advance and you can only book one ticket at a time. We’ve already grabbed our tickets for Nina Kraviz at Fabric this Saturday. We just can’t get enough of it.
