With 2016 coming (thankfully?) close to an end, it’s just about time to start looking forward to 2017. A new year brings a new festival season, and there’s nothing that brings more joy to a live music fan. Of course, we can’t all afford to trek across the country dropping hundreds of dollars on passes to multiple events, so it behooves the smart aficionado to do some accounting work. That’s where Vivid Seats comes in.
The secondary ticket marketplace has become a valuable source for concertgoers looking for passes to the likes of Lollapalooza, Coachella, Outside Lands, and other major music events all over the US. To help you start figuring out your budget for next year’s festivals, Vivid Seats gathered data on the average prices fans paid for tickets to attend the top music festivals in 2016. The top two were Indio, California’s own Desert Trip ($990) and Coachella ($653), while smaller gatherings like San Francisco Fest ($217) and Cincinnati Music Festival ($169) also made the top 10. Review the full graphic to see for yourself the best to divvy up your hard-earned money next festival season.
