Even music festivals want a piece of the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Let’s be clear — these tickets are in limited supply and ticket availability is usually not published. The “early bird” sale is occasionally used as a publicity stunt so that sites like us can breathlessly report that such-and-such festival sold out in under three hours.
Having said that, pull up your chair and with a prayer to the Internet Gods of awesome sales, let’s check out what’s going to be on the Thanksgiving table.
Cyber-Monday 12:00pm Eastern
Tickets for the hottest music festival in the States will start this year at $224.50. You can spread out the hurt over a payment plan of 5 payments of $52. See more about that here.
Black Friday 12:00pm Pacific
There may be no lineup, but that won’t stop Northwest festival fans from scooping up early bird Sasquatch! tickets at $290 for four days. Last year sold out, so if you want in, better get on it.
Black Friday thru Cyber Monday
One of the hippest fests in the west is selling 3-day tickets for $75 with no fees. This is a huge deal, but you’ll need a passcode that can be picked up over on the website.
Beale Street Music Festival 2012
Cyber-Monday 12:00pm Central
According to their Facebook page, a limited number of $55 3-day passes will be available for the May 4-6 Memphis festival. That makes us excited because we’re planning on hitting up this fest come springtime.
