LycaRadio acquires ChilliTickets

LycaRadio, one of the largest Asian radio networks in Greater London, has today announced the acquisition of ChilliTickets, the UK’s leading marketplace for tickets to South Asian events. LycaRadio has purchased the business and operations of ChilliTickets, which sells tickets to over 300 events across the UK per year, including classic Bollywood concerts, Asian club nights and dating events, comedy nights, and Asian wedding exhibitions.

The acquisition will strengthen the position of ChilliTickets as the UK’s leading gateway for secure ticket sales for South Asian events, and will grow its offering to customers under LycaRadio ownership. Current ChilliTickets Account Manager, Ricky Hamilton, will be joining LycaRadio to help drive forward the development of the ChilliTickets business.

Prem Sivasamy, Deputy Chairman of Lyca Group, commented: “We are delighted to announce that LycaRadio has purchased the business and operations of ChilliTickets. This is an exciting new venture for us into the South Asian events market, bringing our extensive customer base access to over 300 unmissable events a year. This development further demonstrates Lyca Group’s commitment to making it easier for our customers to connect with their communities, whether that’s at a classic Bollywood concert or an Asian dating event.”

Pali Banwait founded ChilliTickets in 2006 and currently serves as Director and will support the transition. Banwait said: “It’s been exciting to see what began as a humble project between friends grow and develop to the level it is now at. I’m very much looking forward to the business’s future under LycaRadio, whose span and manpower means it now has the opportunity to fulfil its potential and grow to the next level as the UK’s leading marketplace for South Asian events.”

LycaRadio is part of Lycamedia, Lyca Group’s entertainment business. It is one of the largest Asian radio networks within Greater London and currently runs four radio stations, including Lycaradio 1458, Lyca Dilse Radio 1035, Time 107.5 and Athavan Radio.
