A representative from My Ticket said: "Myticket limited is delighted to be working with Mark and James who have built a company with a reputation for providing reliable, customer focused and honest ticketing. Gigantic will remain an independent company and will continue to do great work for Promoters, festivals and customers throughout the UK."
