As one of Europe’s largest open air EDM festivals, this year’s Balaton Sound’s lineup is alluring: we have The Chainsmokers, David Guetta, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and many more on the sunny bank of the Balaton lake. There’s a pretty neat collection of musicians from the fields of pop and hip-hop, so we can expect a keen interest in the festival.


Besides the already mentioned we can catch Rita Ora, Alesso, Eric Prydz, Big Sean, Princess Nokia, Carnage, Black Coffee, NIGHTMARE and Vini Vici in Zamárdi as well as tematic stages: Elrow Stage is back and the Clubs on the Beach project seems cool too with performers from the Watergate, Pacha or Defected clubs.


The number of fake tickets and shady sellers are unfortunatelly increasing around Balaton Sound. Theese buisnesses are bad both for fans and for the festival. To avoid this problem, Balaton Sound teamed up with Tickething so festival-goers can buy or sell their tickets in a safe and transparent way online. How does this happen? See below.

That´s how the secure API connection between Balaton Sound is working

First step: The seller uploads his/her tickets to Tickething.com and through an API call we make an automatic check on it’s originality (this takes only a few moments). After purchasing a ticket like this the buyer gets a completely new ticket – to avoid the possibility of selling duplicates – and the originally uploaded one is invalidated by Balaton Sound. The seller gets his/her money as soon as the day after the transaction is closed and the buyer can go to have the party of his/her life.

Easy-peasy, right? And it won’t take more than just a few minutes.
