Live Nation today unveiled the Festival Passport: a combined ticket, limited to 1,000, allowing entry to more than 90 festivals for a single payment of US$799.

For the remainder of 2017, those holding a Festival Passport will be admitted to nearly every Live Nation festival worldwide, including Bonnaroo, all three Lollapaloozas (Chicago, Paris and Berlin), Download (UK, Paris, Madrid), Electric Daisy Carnival (Las Vegas and Orlando, Florida), Isle of Wight Festival, Reading and Leeds, Rock Werchter in Belgium, Way Out West in Gothenburg, both Wireless Festivals (London and Frankfurt), Rock am Ring/Rock im Park, T in the Park spin-off  and Australia’s Falls Festival – even if the event is already sold out.

Passports will go on sale on Monday 22 May at 10.00 PT (17.00 GMT) at FestivalPassport.com. To combat touting, the Passports – powered by Ticketmaster’s festival ticketing division, Front Gate Tickets, which recently launched in the UK – will be issued in the original buyer’s name and are non-transferable.

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

A full list of participating festivals is available at the Festival Passport website.
