One of the world’s largest concert promoters, Live Nation, has added a bevy of festivals across the globe to its portfolio over the past decade. Now, the company is making the most of its properties by offering the Festival Passport, a $799 pass that will provide admission to nearly every Live National festival, even if the event is already sold out.
Austin City Limits Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Camp Bisco, Forecastle, Peach Festival, Governors Ball, Isle of Wight, Lollapalooza (Chicago, Paris, and Berlin) and V Festival are just a few of the 90+ festivals for which Festival Passport will gain purchasers entry. Only 1,000 Festival Passports will be available and they go up for grabs this Monday, May 22 at 10 a.m. PT via FestivalPassport.com.
Festival Passports will be issued in the original buyer’s name and are non-transferable as Live Nation aims to combat scalpers. “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,” reads a part of Live Nation’s statement about Festival Passport in a section about how to use the pass.
