Who We Are
We're an event discovery site that helps live event providers across the U.S. reach a huge new audience of enthusiastic event-goers in their area.
We encourage our five million members to go out more by helping them discover a ton of interesting things to do; then we make it easy and affordable to buy tickets so there’s no barrier to trying something new. This means new audiences for our partners — for theater, concerts, sports and all kinds of live events.
80% of our buyers are trying out an event or venue for the first time – and in many cases they’re filling seats that would have otherwise gone unsold. By promoting key dates and offers to our members in advance — on the site, in the app and through our emails – our partners fill seats AND build valuable new relationships.

What Our Partners Say
Goldstar has focused and targeted buyers who actively want to attend live events at the right price. The marketing spent to capture this income is zero. In my mind, it is a more prudent way to market and sell tickets rather than utilizing the old-school model of buying TV/radio/print.
Eric HerzLive Nation Buyer
Goldstar is a class act. I find them to be professional and extremely organized.
Jay BeeryTicketing Manager, Broadway Across America
Goldstar is a powerful and flexible marketing tool. There is no question that by using Goldstar strategically, a promoter is able to leverage a general marketing campaign, reach new customers and sell more tickets. It's a win-win for everybody.
Allan R. GlennonProducer/Promoter, Washington, DC
The quality of Goldstar's marketing, the size of its audience base and the passion of its fans make them a go-to source for finding patrons with an affinity for live events.
Liza LorenzDirector of Communications and Marketing, Ford’s Theatre, Washington, D.C.
We utilize Goldstar every chance we get! From general listings to special marketing & sales opportunities like Cyber Monday, Goldstar outperforms most of our other ticket partners. The Goldstar team is on the ball and responsive to our every need ... a pleasure to work with and a true sales and marketing partner.
Kirstin BealDirector of Sales, Blue Man Group, Boston
Goldstar is a great partner to work with and an essential part of our marketing plan.
Angus WatsonDirector of Ticketing Operations, Ravinia, Chicago
Goldstar’s value as a member of our audience development team is practically inestimable, not just in terms of tickets and dollars, but also as a means of making the magic of live theater available to many who would otherwise be unable to afford it. ... For theaters and theater-goers alike, Goldstar is a goldmine.
