Ticketmaster’s Live Nation To Be Met With Antitrust Lawsuit From The Department Of Justice

IMG 0415 1024x689 1 jpeg

In a major development for the live entertainment industry, the Department of Justice’s antitrust division is reportedly preparing to file a complaint against Live Nation and Ticketmaster. This potential lawsuit comes two years after launching an investigation into the two companies, following a series of controversies and allegations of anticompetitive practices. The investigation was first revealed in November 2022, following Ticketmaster’s botched on-sale rollout for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, which highlighted long-standing issues such as wait times and high price mark-ups. As politicians joined the chorus of critics, concerns over Live Nation’s alleged monopoly over the live entertainment industry grew.

Live Nation has vehemently denied these accusations, with the company’s head of corporate affairs, Dan Wall, recently publishing an essay refuting claims of monopoly. Despite their defense, the impending antitrust lawsuit signals a potential turning point for the industry and could have far-reaching implications for how live events are organized and tickets are sold in the future.

In this blog post, we will delve into the background of the DOJ’s investigation, the allegations against Live Nation and Ticketmaster, and the potential impact of the upcoming lawsuit on the live entertainment landscape.

Background of the Investigation

Ticketmaster’s Taylor Swift ticketing fiasco might have just led to a lawsuit from the DOJ

The DOJ’s investigation into Live Nation and Ticketmaster began several years ago, with concerns mounting over the companies’ dominance in the live entertainment market. Live Nation, the world’s largest live entertainment company, merged with Ticketmaster in 2010, creating a powerhouse that controlled various aspects of the concert and ticketing industry. This merger raised red flags among industry observers and competitors, who feared that the combined entity would stifle competition and drive up prices for consumers.

Over the years, complaints about Ticketmaster’s fees, ticketing practices, and exclusive deals with venues have continued to surface, fueling the antitrust scrutiny. The 2022 incident involving Taylor Swift’s tour only added fuel to the fire, as fans experienced frustrating delays and exorbitant prices during the ticket purchasing process. These events prompted lawmakers to call for a closer look at Live Nation and Ticketmaster’s business practices, culminating in the DOJ’s formal investigation.

Despite Live Nation’s insistence that it operates within the bounds of fair competition, the mounting evidence and public outcry have led to the DOJ’s decision to move forward with a potential antitrust lawsuit. If successful, the lawsuit could reshape the live entertainment landscape and pave the way for a more competitive and consumer-friendly industry.

Potential Impact of the Lawsuit

The impending antitrust lawsuit against Live Nation and Ticketmaster has the potential to shake up the live entertainment industry in significant ways. If the DOJ’s complaint leads to legal action, it could result in substantial fines, divestitures, or even the breakup of the companies to restore competition in the market. This outcome could open the door for smaller players to enter the industry, offering more options for artists, venues, and fans alike.

Moreover, a successful antitrust lawsuit could prompt changes in how tickets are sold, distributed, and priced for live events. Ticketmaster’s fees and surcharges, which have long been a point of contention for consumers, may come under increased scrutiny, leading to more transparent pricing structures and fairer deals for ticket buyers. Additionally, exclusive contracts between Ticketmaster and venues could be reevaluated, allowing for greater competition and choice in ticketing services.

Overall, the outcome of the antitrust lawsuit against Live Nation and Ticketmaster could have far-reaching implications for the live entertainment industry, shaping the way concerts, festivals, and other events are organized and experienced in the future. As stakeholders await the DOJ’s next move, the industry is bracing for a potential paradigm shift that could redefine the dynamics of live entertainment for years to come.

Fisher Uploads ‘Under Construction’ L.A. Entire B2B Set With Chris Lake

image 34 1024x582 1

One of the most beloved B2Bs in today’s industry is finally online for us to enjoy. Last week, Fisher uploaded his L.A. ‘Under Construction’ B2B set with none other than Chris Lake. The 3-hour session, part of the brand the two of them have been working on since the beginning of last year, is one of the most exciting concepts in the current mainstream tech house scene.

It’s been more than half a decade since ‘Losing It’ took the industry by storm. Ever since, Fisher has been an absolute force to be reckoned with. Chris Lake, on the other side, had already spent the last couple of years becoming an absolute titan inside the darker genres of house music.

By the time both artists intertwined their careers, they were more than ready to take over the tech house scene. Ever since that moment, it’s been nothing but massive parties, the biggest stages, and the finest mainstage house music. The duo even managed to mix their way into Coachella. There, they delivered one of the best sessions of the entire festival.

It’s safe to say that this experiment has turned into a complete success. The only thing left to do was gear up and bring the party all across the globe. And that is exactly what they did.

Chris Lake Fisher L.A. Hollywood Blvd. set

For 3 hours, the Hollywood Boulevard turned into a massive dance floor. A street that’s no stranger to such performances turned into an absolute house hub. The energy of both DJs, always complementing each other perfectly, was all the crowd needed. Here, it’s not about the massive stages and the crazy productions. It is all about house music. Endless dancing, vibing, and all-around good energies.

If that’s what your week’s missing, fear no more. Fisher and Chris Lake’s L.A. ‘Under Construction’ set is here to fix you up!
