    ​​The ever-quickening consolidation of major music festivals by just a few major corporations is seen by many as a blight. They argue it leads to standardized and repetitive lineups and the damaging of independent music. Well, at least for 2017, it also leads to the opportunity for cheap as hell tickets, as Live Nation has just rolled out its Festival Passport.

    Priced at just $799, the Passport provides GA entrance to any of Live Nation’s over 90 festivals worldwide. Considering tickets to Live Nation-owned events Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza are priced at $349.50 and $335, respectively, before fees, the extra hundred bucks to get into 88 other festivals isn’t too shabby. Some of the big-name festivals included in the promotion are Austin City Limits, Electric Daisy Carnival, Governors BallForecastle, and Sasquatch!, along with European juggernauts like Rock WerchterReading and LeedsWay Out WestIsle of Wight, Parklife, Lollapalooza’s Berlin and Paris editions, and tons more.

    What’s that? Lollapalooza is sold out, you say? Doesn’t matter with the Festival Passport, as it’s a guaranteed entry regardless of the event’s ticket availability. All you have to do is show up to will call with your personalized Festival Passport, show them your ID, and get a wristband. The only reason you have to reach out in advance is to confirm any camping passes included with a festival’s GA tickets, in which case you have to contact Live Nation at least two weeks before the event.
