    Boy tickets sure are selling fast! A 5,000 seat venue would be scared to death if this few tickets sold in the first week. This, however, is a 30,000+ capacity venue. HAHA.

    Is there a post anywhere with sales info so far? Just curious where you’re getting this info.

    Go to seak geek's site and search for tickets. Then zoom in to each section and the ones in grey are sold (except for the top of each aisle. I think they are holding those back for now)

    Definitely doesn't look like they've sold a ton of seats given the venue size, but I would imagine the bulk of ticket sales will be on the field anyway, right?

    I fully plan to Groupon to this festival.

    Could very well be true. They do still have the big ole green dot on the field as of now meaning tickets are readily available. IIRC, 2016's GA field sold awfully quick and 2017's didn't sell out but did have a good chunk sold at this point.

    They lowered their ticket prices. After fees it's now $123 for a GA field ticket for a saturday pass, which feels a lot more reasonable to me, I mean that's like floor tickets to an arena show so fine I'll pay that. I mean for 7 bands that's not a terrible deal.

    That price feels much more reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to drop $123 to see System of a Down, Tool, Ghost, the Prodigy, Fever 333, Gojira, Knocked Loose, and Vein.

    I like that they acknowledged the fan comments too with that "we heard you."

    Well that's still a one day pass haha I imagine it's like 230 for both days after fees (it's priced at like 210)

    Ah, sorry! I misunderstood their post. Looks like the GA tickets are $209.50 -- still not too bad (and worth it to me).

    If I lived closer I would probably go to see System at the new price, but the lineup isn't good enough to get me out there like it was the first year.

    They're putting up a barricade to separate the people that paid the original field price/vip and the people that buy the new cheaper price.

    Is this going to just see System of a Down? I've wanted to see them for 10+ years but at this point I'm kind of over them lol

    Ghost, Meshuggah, Beartooth, Knocked Loose, Gojira & The Black Dalhia Murder are all very "meh" to me. Willing to give Code Orange, Vein, The Prodigy & Alien Weapondry a chance

    BOGO Valentine's Special going until 2/15 - 2 tickets for $209 + fees. Looks like my buddy and I are pulling the trigger on this.

    that's a bit more appropriately priced.

    I can justify it. It's roughly $60 a day and that's how much a Tool or SOAD show would be and they're my biggest draw. Everything else is just bonus.

    That's got me kind of wanting to do 2 days now. I was prepared to pay $100 for one day eventually so hmm idk I wouldn't mind seeing Fever 333, The Prodigy and Tool for no extra cost, I'm just not sure my friends will want to go a second day.

    I promise you all Prodigy is beyond worth it. They are still one of the best acts I've ever seen live.

    I saw Prodigy at Riot Fest a few years ago and their live show was a blast.

    Their Riot Fest performance a few years back is the reason I'm making sure to catch the Boston date of their current tour...

    That and I'm really hoping that Ho9909 gets added as opener.
