Promoter to get files on Electric Picnic ticket sales
TICKETMASTER must provide music promoter John Reynolds with information about volume discounts on the sale of tickets for five Electric Picnic festivals up to 2013, the Commercial Court has ordered.
Mr Reynolds wants the documents for the hearing of his dispute with companies operating the Electric Picnic concerning a series of issues relating to the handling of the festival. A full hearing is not expected to happen before next year.
Mr Justice Peter Charleton ruled yesterday Mr Reynolds was entitled to discovery of volume discount information from Ticketmaster concerning ticket sales during the five years between 2009 and 2013.
Mr Reynolds claims he was kept out of the volume discounting and lost out as a result.
The judge heard his side estimated a sum of €450,000 was involved during the period.
