After giving music fans their shot at $20 concert tickets, Live Nation is taking it one step further and offering a discounted festival pass. Billed as the “Festival Passport,” the all-in-one pass will allow you to visit more than 90 music festivals around the world for one price.
According to a statement from Live Nation, the festival pass will cost $799 and will go on sale on May 22 at 10 a.m. PDT. The pass will also allow you to get into a festival even if it’s sold out. But you better act fast as Live Nation will only be selling 1,000 passes.
“This exclusive experience will only be available to 1,000 fans,” read a statement from Live Nation. “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. With that in mind, only one Festival Passport purchase is allowed per person.”
Festival Passport holders will have access to the following North American festivals:
Austin City Limits Music Festival
Billboard Hot 100
CBC Music Festival
Center of Gravity
Chicago Open Air
Contact Winter Music Festival
Crystal Coast Music Festival
Dreams Music Festival
EDC Las Vegas
Escape: Psycho Circus
Field Trip Music and Arts Festival
Free Press Summer Festival
FVDED in the Park
HARD Summer Music Festival
Jamboree in the Hills
One Love Music Festival
Peach Music Festival
Sloss Music And Arts
The Meadows Music & Arts Festival
The Roots Picnic
Trackside Music Festival
Voodoo Music + Arts Festival
Once you obtain a Festival Passport, all you’ll have to do is visit will call to pick up your festival wristband. “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,” Live Nation’s statement read.
Aside from North American festivals, the Festival Passport will also grant you access to various European festivals including Barcelona Beach Festival, Citadel Festival, Community Festival, Copenhell, Electric Picnic Music and Arts Festival, Findings Festival, Wireless Festival, Way Out West, V Festival and Woo-Hah! Festival.
Live Nation also made headlines earlier this month when they signed a 10-year deal with Jay Z. The rapper, who will be appearing at Austin City Limits and The Meadows, will have his concert events produced and promoted by the company.
According to Forbes, the deal is worth $200 million, $50 million more than his 2008 deal. “Live Nation and I entered unchartered territory in 2008,” Jay Z said. “This renewed partnership is a testament to our longstanding relationship and the talented individuals at Live Nation. For the next ten years, we will continue redefining the live event landscape.”
