Hi, we’re Fever!

Fever is the leading global tech-enabled entertainment discovery platform with a clear mission: to inspire through live entertainment.

Our mobile-first marketplace allows both discovery/inspiration and seamless 2-click booking.

Fever and its Secret Media Network inspires over 60 million people every month to discover the best experiences in their cities.

The preferences expressed by these communities allow us to create new experiences, which we call “Fever Originals”. These are proprietary experiences in which we follow a data-driven content creation strategy, using analytics to understand audiences, develop and optimize new formats. Some successful examples include the “Candlelight Concert Series” attended by over 3 million guests, the Los Angeles based “Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience” co-produced with Netflix, or the “Mad Hatter G&T Party”, all launched in multiple cities across the world.
