Pre-sale tickets are the most affordable. They usually go on sale between nine months and a year before the festival. You'll need a pre-sales code to get the cheapest rate. Did you know that the average festival attendee travels 903 miles to attend? TicketIQ is committed to transparency in ticket sales and we earn much less with sold out tickets compared to other major markets, such as StubHub and Vivid.
This means that ticket buyers save up to 15% on TicketIQ for sports, music and theater tickets. We can do this because we also work directly with the festival to help them sell tickets at the nominal price, directly to consumers like you, through Ticketmaster, Frontgate, Eventbrite and other ticketing platforms. Learn more by reading our Music Festival Buying Guide, which we think is the most objective advice on where to find the best deals on concert tickets, whether they're “sold out” on TicketIQ or “unsold” in the main ticket market. Festivals of all sizes usually offer tickets from 2 to 4 or at a discount on or around this date to increase sales before the full lineup has been confirmed.
Make sure to write the date down in your calendar to make the most of it. There are many other music festivals that offer free tickets, discounts and other benefits in exchange for volunteer work. Although it doesn't happen often, you'd hate to be involved in a situation like the Fyre Festival, so make sure that the festival you want to go to is legitimate. Many festivals use representation systems and the Skiddle app offers a great opportunity to see which festivals have registered.
Ticket stores, such as Skiddle, offer regular contests throughout the year so that music fans can recover the price of tickets to the festival.
