It’s always an exciting time when we get to welcome a new member to the Festicket & Event Genius family.

Through our ‘Meet the team’ blog series, we’ll be shining the spotlight on the people helping make the magic happen, finding out their stories, ambitions, the live entertainment experiences that shaped them, and more.

In this latest post we caught up with the newest member of our development team, James Mayell. 

Why did you choose to join Festicket & Event Genius?

I love music and live events and I really wanted to be a part of a company making them more accessible for everyone.

What attracted you to the live events and festival industry?

I’ve always wanted to work in an industry where I have a real passion for the end product and as someone who really enjoys watching live music I find it easy to feel excited about working in this space every day.

What are you most excited about with regards to your new role here?

Coming from a development agency environment, I'm excited to be working in an in house role where everyone is on board with the goals of the company and the product first hand, and to be working in an industry I am passionate about! 

As a fan, what is your favourite festival or gig memory?

Mac DeMarco, Dublin 2019. The last gig I went to before you know what… It was just such a good night and he's one of my absolute favourite artists.

James will join us in our UK team but we also have offices across the world, including across Europe, Australia and North America and are actively growing our teams across all these territories.

We’re a close-knit team of passionate music fans and event-goers dedicated to making the industry a better place for fans and organisers alike, and are always on the lookout for other like-minded individuals to join the family!
