Published Apr 09, 2018Live Nation has announced the return of its popular Festival Passport — a pass that grants you access to the promoter's festivals all around the world for one flat fee.
Following a 2017 edition, the Festival Passport is expanding this year, doubling the number of general admission passes available to 2,500. These now cost $999 USD ($1,200 CAD), while VIP passes (limited to only 100) go for $5,000 USD ($6,300 CAD).
No matter what pass you go for, Festival Passport holders will get access to more than 100 festivals presented by Live Nation. These include Austin City Limits Music Festival (US), Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival (US), Download (UK, Spain, France, Australia), Electric Daisy Carnival (US), Falls Festival (Australia), Firenze Rocks (Italy), Governors Ball Music Festival (US), Lollapalooza (Germany, France, US), Rock Werchter (Belgium), Sasquatch! Music Festival (US), and many more.
New 2018 additions include Sydney City Limits (Australia), Creamfields (China), RedFestDXB (UAE), Impact Festival (Poland), Openair Frauenfeld (Switzerland) and Edinburgh Summer Sessions (UK).
You can see a map of all the participating festivals over here. Several Canadian festivals are part of the program.
