There may be no Glastonbury this year but that doesn’t mean you have to stay at home moping especially when a new super-exclusive pass that will get into over 100 festivals goes on sale.
You can travel around the world with Live Nation’s Festival Passport – a ticket which gives you access to every festival this summer put on by the music promoter.
That means over 100 festivals including Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Isle of Wight and Field Day in the UK as well as New York’s Governors Ball, Australia’s Falls Festival, China’s Creamfields, UAE’s RedFestDXB and Poland’s Impact Festival.
The pass also gives you entry to all three Lollapalooza events in Berlin, Paris and Chicago.
Sounds great, right? But it doesn’t come cheap. The Passport will set you back $999 (£704) although if you think about it most festivals cost over £100 for a weekend pass so you’ll be saving lots of money.
Only people signed up to Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform will be able to purchase one.
Registration is currently open here and closes at Thursday, April 12th at 8pm PDT (Friday at 4am BST).
Once you’ve registered, fans will receive a code which will allow them to purchase a general access or VIP Festival Passport when they go on sale here on Tuesday, April 17 at 8am PDT (4pm BST).
There are only 2,500 general access passes and 100 VIP tickets costing $5,000 (£3,519) available.
All Festival Passports sold out in under 24 hours last year so make sure you get in there early.
Once you’ve bagged a Passport, you’ll need to email the concierge at least two weeks prior to an event to reserve your spot.
Camping isn’t included, unless otherwise noted, and neither is transportation, airfare, hotel accommodation or parking .
Only one general access or VIP Festival Passport, which is valid from April 2018 to April 2019, will be available to purchase per person.
Live Nation is requiring fans to submit their full legal name to match with a photo ID so they can gain entry to each festival.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
