Scraping Ticketmaster Data
Ticketmaster offers an official API you can use to collect data from regarding events, venues, ticket prices & more. You’ll need to register for API access to use the Ticket Master API, however it’s free and very easy to get started.
Ticketmaster API Key
Once you have a TicketMaster Developer account, you’ll need to get your API Key. You can follow their instructions for getting your API Key and review your usage settings including your default quota for how frequently you can access the API.
You can try out the Ticketmaster API Explorer, which will allow you to make API calls without writing any code and is a great way to get started with the Discovery API.
We suggest starting with the Event Search option. Just plug in your API key and test out some parameters to see how the API works and what kind of data you can get back! You’ll find that the search endpoint returns a lot of data back, including ticket price, start & end times, description, the event’s venues & more. You can also specify filters, such as
includeFamily to only get back family events. Once you find an event, you can change the endpoint to Get Event Details to get more information back about a specific event.
Export TicketMaster Events to Excel
If you’re interested in collecting back the data you see in the API Explorer as CSV files, then our TicketMaster Event Search Scraper will do this for you automatically, working similarily to the API Explorer, but allowing you to download the results as CSV files instead of JSON text. You can also see our TicketMaster Event Search Workflow, which will automatically combine results across different pages and search terms, allowing you to quickly scrape thousands of events into a single CSV you can download in minutes.
