Live Nation launch Festival Passport

Live nation announced an international Festival Passport that will allow festivalgoers to purchase a combined ticket allowing entry to over 90 festivals.

The passport costing $799 (£615) includes worldwide festivals such as Lollapalooza in Chicago and Berlin, Download in the UK and Madrid, Electric Daisy Carnival, Way Out West and both Wireless Festivals in London and Frankfurt.

The tickets are limited to 1,000 and went on sale on 22 May. Live Nation stated that the Festival Passports are in a bid to combat ticket touting. Issued by Ticketmaster’s festival ticketing division, Front Gate Tickets, the Passports will only be accepted through the original buyer’s name and will be non-transferable.

Live Nation commented: “The process is simple. Show up at the event, take the Festival Passport to the box office with a valid ID to get a designated wristband for that festival, then enter and enjoy the show.”
