As we creep up on festival season, those of us who plan to partake have to keep a sharp eye on ticket sales. Festivals that sell out do so for a reason– they’re amazing and more fun than real life. Now, there may be a bump in the road this year (click here for more info on how coronavirus is impacting festival season!), but that doesn’t mean we should refrain from buying tickets.
In this article, I will mention a few festivals and provide helpful links for acquiring tickets, especially for those weekends away that have already sold out. Start planning for the next few months by looking into a music festival that will take your spring and summer to the next level!
Rolling Loud Miami
With Florida on the brain after a spring break to remember, I suggest checking out Rolling Loud in Miami this May. There is a myriad of ticket packages available, from GA to VIP, and they are all still available on the Rolling Loud website. Tickets are on sale now, so if you’re already going to be in the neighborhood, or could go for a few days in the Florida heat, give this link a click!
If you’re in the market for an EDM experience, consider buying a ticket for Movement Detroit 2020. This city is known for its electronic music scene, and this festival is a perfect way to immerse yourself in it. The website calls this Memorial Day Weekend in Detroit a “Techno City adventure” and offers helpful hotel options and irresistible volunteer opportunities. The ticket prices are also very manageable as far as festivals go, with 3-day GA admission set at $209. It’s not sold out yet, but the dates are fast approaching! I would give Movement Detroit some thought, especially if you’re a midwesterner with an interest in EDM.
For a wide variety of music and extremely unique location, give Governors Ball a look. Situated in Randall’s Island Park, this festival features artists from a multitude of genres and energy levels. While Rolling Loud and Movement are focused on more specific facets of the music world, this festival will give you a weekend away on a grassy island surrounded by whatever sound you’re craving. This is a great option for anyone who doesn’t have a ton of festival experience. It was the first one I ever went to, and the setup was easy to navigate, while the ferry to and from the island made it harder for me to wander off and get lost in the surrounding city. Of course, anyone would have fun here, and I’ve been meaning to go back. I just think it’s nice to note that even at a music festival with thousands of people, I felt safe and comfortable as I navigated this world for the first time. I’ll link the website here so everyone can check out tickets!
Like Governors Ball, Bonnaroo graces its audience with a plethora of artists across basically every genre line. There is something for everyone, so everybody should check it out. 4-day passes recently sold out, and there are only a few single-day ticket options left, so decide fast! Kidding (sort of), because Bonnaroo offers a link to their official ticket exchange, so you know you’re buying a valid ticket. If you feel like packing up and heading to Tennessee for a weekend you’ll cherish forever, give these links a click!
I couldn’t possibly mention the midwest and music festivals without giving Electric Forest a shoutout. It is a pillar for the EDM festival scene and continues to sell out every year. Offering exceptional loyalty deals and constantly working to improve the environment for its attendees, EF will sweep you off your feet. Surprise surprise, it’s already sold out, not never fear! I’ll link the official wristband swap website here if you want to seek out a ticket from someone who wishes to resell or simply cannot go anymore (bummer for them, great for you!).
