The wait is finally over; football season is back! Preseason officially begins this week, and we know you’re excited. Heck, if you’re like us, you’ve been counting down the days it since February 3rd. Here are five things we’ve missed about football season:
In a previous post about the Hollywood Fringe Festival, we featured Live Nation employee Ben Hill, who, while working full-time, has managed to produce one of the largest performing arts festival not just in L.A., but in the world.
Now, we want to share Ben’s solid words of wisdom, for anyone who’s interested in successfully pulling off any type of creative side hustle while maintaining a “9-to-5”:
Live show enthusiast? Concert addict? Simply just can’t get enough music? Let us be the ones to feed your live event obsession.
See behind-the-scenes footage, artist interviews, and live streamed concerts, all year long, right from your couch. These concerts are brought to you by Live Nation in partnership with Yahoo! who are aiming to bring fans live streamed concerts for the entire year.
This weekend marks the official start of football season, with two of New York’s teams going head-to-head in Canton, Ohio, and that means we’re also officially approaching fantasy football season. Fantasy football leagues can be sources of severe anxiety for those of us who don’t make stat-tracking a daily (or hourly, or minute-to-minute) habit. It can be nerve-wracking to be confronted by football superfans who exert their superior knowledge of the game with good old-fashioned football trash talking. What’s a more casual fan to do?
Live Nation and Ticketmaster are well-known for their positions in the live entertainment business, but what you may not know is that our employees are passionate about making their mark in live entertainment too. Take for example, Ben Hill, senior director of financial planning systems. By day, he manages business platforms and applications, but at night and on weekends, he’s working out the details of a performing arts event he founded and has operated for five years, the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Your tickets are being attacked by bots. No, not science fiction robots. We’re talking automated programs that some nefarious brokers use to tie up our system, buy up big blocks of tickets, and prevent you from getting any.

Read on to learn how these little words help save the day for real fans like you.
