Berlin, August 5, 2019 - DEAG Deutsche Entertainment Aktiengesellschaft (DEAG), Berlin, listed in the Prime Standard, ISIN: DE000A0Z23G6, Ticker: ERMK, has announced that it is off to a successful start to the third quarter of 2019. The three open air events "Sion sous les étoiles" in Switzerland, "Belladrum" in the UK and "NATURE ONE" in Germany have sold out again this year. DEAG sold more than 1100,000 day and multi-day tickets for these three events. In total, the open-air events in the three countries counted more than 230,000 music fans.
Prof. Peter Schwenkow, CEO of DEAG, comments: "We are supplementing our organic growth by expanding our own successful entertainment formats with very selective M&A activities. All three open air events are great proof of how successful we are: Established for many years, highly profitable and once again completely sold out, we are not only contributing to strengthening our profitability, but also providing growth impetus in our ticketing business. Via MyTicket we meanwhile sell tickets for all our events as well as third-party content. For NATURE ONE 2020, we are already conducting advance sales again!"
"Sion sous les étoiles" is a traditional and locally established event in the canton of Valais. The same goes for "Belladrum" in Scotland, which has been sold out since 2009. "NATURE ONE," the biggest rave event in Germany and one of the biggest European events on the electro music scene, was voted "Best Festival 2018" at the German Live Entertainment Awards (LEA).
The three open air events reflect DEAG's successful start into the expected very strong third quarter of 2019. Other highlights in the current quarter include the six stadium shows with Ed Sheeran, as part of the "Welcome-Back-Tour" in Ipswich and Leeds, the "Potsdamer Schlössernacht" in the Schlosspark Sanssouci, the flashlight concert on the Berlin Waldbühne and the first open-air concert by Anne-Sophie Mutter in Munich.
