Live Nation just changed the game, announcing “The Festival Passport” – an interesting new service that offers fans GA access to over 90+ festivals for a one-time fee of $799. Even if the festival has already sold out, The Festival Passport holders will still be granted admission.
“Each Festival Passport is equipped with a unique ID and powered by Front Gate Tickets, a group within Ticketmaster specializing in festival ticketing, making it a breeze for fans to hop around the world visiting the Live Nation festivals of their choosing. The process is simple: show up at the event, take the Festival Passport to will call with a valid ID to get a designated wristband for that festival, then enter and enjoy the show.“
This service only applies to events occurring in the remainder of 2017. Some noteworthy Live Nation festivals that would qualify include: Austin City Limits, Camp Bisco, EDC Las Vegas, Governor’s Ball, HARD Summer, Lollapalooza, Roots Picnic, Peach Fest, and many more! With most popular festival tickets ranging anywhere from $150-$400, securing The Festival Passport at just $799 is certainly a bargain!
To combat scalpers, and make sure fans are the ones taking this epic journey, these passports will be issued in the original buyer’s name and are non-transferable. Also, at least for now, this exclusive offer will only be available for the first 1,000 fans. Live Nation’s Festival Passports will go on sale May 22nd at 10am PST at FestivalPassport.com.
