KadmusArts.com is a site dedicated to the festival community of producers and promoters, artists and bands, and most importantly, audiences and fans.
The site is owned and operated by Seattle-based Festival Transaction Services. FTS offers financial services to the fair and festival community including card processing, ticketing, promotion and sponsorship sales support for events. FTS acquired KadmusArts.com in 2013.
KadmusArts, an arts and technology company devoted to connecting audiences to arts, culture, and entertainment around the world was founded by Bill Reichblum.
KadmusArts’ multi-lingual team, led by Bill, Ana Maria Harkins and Ann Jareckie, bring together extensive experience in the arts, education, international development, and producing. We maintain an up-to-date and thorough database of world-wide information on artists, performances, arts organizations, entertainment and cultural initiatives to inform our content packages for media distribution and fans.
Our name came from ancient Greek mythology. Kadmus, founder of the city of Thebes, created the alphabet for humankind, a beginning of culture. At his marriage to the goddess Harmony, Kadmus was given the privilege of hearing the Muses sing. Their ceremony was the last time that the Gods revealed themselves as they truly were to humankind. After the marriage, Gods were always disguised when they interacted with humans. Then again, as in all great myths — and performances — the starting line might be, “It was and it was not...”
Of course, the ancient Greeks also brought us the modern festival: a coming together of artists and audiences to create a communal experience of enlightenment and fun.
From our small studio in the Green Mountain state (Vermont) of the United States, we created the site to help artists, audiences, cultural travelers and festival colleagues find each other — all over the world. Through word-of-mouth and the participation of festivals, artists, and audiences in 156 countries, KadmusArts.com is now the web’s most popular and comprehensive portal to every kind of live event festival throughout the world. Festival goers of the world unite!
This site’s goal is to make festivals more accessible and to promote the meeting of cultures, performances, and artists.
If you like to travel, want to connect to the best in live performances and want to follow the latest trends in live entertainment, then we are here for you.
We love to promote artistic accomplishment and cultural tourism. We share a commitment to make connections from one country to another, from one culture to another, and from one individual to another.
