ok this is sick
Buying mine on Thursday
Just booked our flight, have the Airbnb all set, just need to purchase the tickets. Pumped as usual.
Down to roughly 300 tickets for anyone (me) that hasn't purchased yet.
Less than 100 left.. crazy
Read less than 100 left last night and ordered right away. I really hope the cost increase and tier pricing will not be the norm moving forward.
The "Jawbreaker" effect as a bigger than usual headliner did have a huge effect on ticket prices and crazy sales, compared to past years. Wonder if they will try to book at list 1 bigger headliner moving forward
Officially sold out
Maybe because I don't like them, but I didn't know Jawbreaker was such a big deal.
They're a big deal in a niche way for sure
Also it's just surprising to me this doesn't sell out every year since it's only 3000 passes
FEST 17 ATTENDANCE STATS:
3 DAY PASSES SOLD- 2,205
INDIVIDUAL SHOW TICKETS 1,416
BAND MEMBERS/ Wrestlers/ Comedians 1,529
Volunteers/ Staff 610
SPONSORS/ PRESS/ VENUE COMPS 435
TOTAL ATTENDANCE 6,195
That makes more sense
Beers sold: 300,000
So Arms Aloft got fucking dropped because they dared to point out the fact that 95% of the bands playing fest make peanuts while the headliners all make bank. Weren't even critical of Fest either. They were just pointing out how fucked up the music industry is.
This seems to have become a bigger deal than I think was supposed to happen.
Does not surprise me Arms Aloft said something about it. Very much up their wheelhouse. Bummer they won’t be playing.
did anyone else cover it other than the massive post on fest friends? fest itself has been actively suppressing comments about it on their social media
Not that I am aware of. I, too, seen it on Fest Friends. Fest is getting a bad look for sure.
Dag Nasty dropped off :(, do we think we are getting a replacement?
At this point I'm not sure, but one would be welcomed! I guess they do need a replacement for headlining 8 Seconds on Friday since the lineups were announced
