AI-powered ticket platform TickX has partnered with legendary music magazine NME to become its exclusive ticket provider.

Manchester-based TickX is a search engine and discovery platform for events and attractions which is about to move out of the city’s Northern Quarter and into OBI Property’s Tower 12 in the Spinningfields financial district.

Visitors to NME.com will now be able to discover and buy tickets for gigs, festivals and more when reading about their favourite artists.

“We’re extremely proud to be partnering with one of the most iconic brands in entertainment to bring NME’s millions of loyal readers the chance to discover and buy the best available tickets for their favourite artists,” said TickX CEO Steve Pearce.

“2018 has started off with a bang at TickX HQ and we’re looking forward to announcing more exciting new developments in the near future.”

Keith Walker, digital director of NME, said: "The partnership between NME and TickX is a natural fit as we aim to provide our visitors with the best value and choice when buying tickets.

“NME fans are passionate about live entertainment and with TickX powering our ticketing, our audience will now find the best priced tickets available for the artists they love.”

TickX allows customers to find and buy tickets for over 125,000 events from all of the major selling platforms, including Ticketmaster, See Tickets, Headout and Skiddle.

The partnership follows a recent announcement that TickX has raised £3 million in a Series A funding round led by BGF Ventures, one year after the founders turned down offers of £75,000 on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.

Over one million customers used TickX last year to plan their day or night out.

TickX is available to customers across UK, Ireland and Spain online or via the TickX app, with further expansion across Europe coming soon.
