Festicket, the U.K.-headquartered festival booking platform, has picked up another $4.6 million in funding, an extension of the startup’s $10.5 million Series D late last year. The new backing comes from Edge Investments, the creative industries investor that counts music industry veteran Harvey Goldsmith as a director.

Edge joins an existing roster of Series D investors that includes venture capital firm Beringea, Jaguar Land Rover’s venture capital fund InMotion Ventures, Channel 4’s Commercial Growth Fund, Lepe Partners, U-Start, and ex Spinnin’ Records CEO Eelko Van Kooten. The company has also been previously backed by Lepe Partners, Wellington Partners, PROfounders, and Playfair Capital, amongst others.

Founded in 2012, Festicket set out to make booking various festival experience across Europe as easy as booking a package holiday. The platform — or marketplace — lets you discover and book festival tickets and the related travel itinerary. Fast forward to today, the company works with over 1,200 festivals and 4,500 suppliers across 50 countries, serving more than 2.5 million customers worldwide.
