PRESS RELEASE - JANUARY 17, 2022
Red61 INTRODUCES THEIR TICKETING SOLUTION IN THE US MARKET
Red61 continues their market reach in North America by providing the ticketing solution to FRIGID New York
Red61, the Edinburgh based Ticketing as a Service software company, welcomed their first US client FRIGID New York who went on sale with events at their New York venues the Kraine Theater, Under St. Marks, and digitally on Frigid TV. Red61 has been rapidly expanding in Canada over the last few years and the emergence in the US market is a natural progression for the company’s North American presence.
Because of the strong network of fringe festivals between Canada and the US, FRIGID New York was keen to leverage a ticketing solution used by many of their industry peers in Canada. In 2006, FRIGID New York was proudly accepted into the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals, and FRIGID Festival was born. FRIGID Festival, the first festival of its kind in New York City, is a winter Fringe festival and is an entirely open and uncensored Indie theater festival, in which the artists keep 100% of their earnings.
