The company's clients include such top-tier music events as Coachella, Austin City Limits, Electric Forest, The Governors Ball Music Festival, Lollapalooza, RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest and X Games, to name a few. The company also leverages its technologies to help brands connect with highly engaged festival-goers, a service that will perfectly complement Live Nation's integrated live-music sponsorships network.

Billboard reports that the acquisition – its terms were not disclosed – ends a state of limbo that the independent ticketing company found itself in after Live Nation purchased a majority interest in C3 Presents late last year.
