Bonnaroo 2006 | VIP Tickets Sold Out

From Bonnaroo.com…

VIP TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT!

Regular tickets remain but are selling briskly and are expected to sell out as well. We urge you to act soon and purchase your tickets if you are planning to attend this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival.

Yeah, I mean, if there was any year that Bonnaroo wouldn’t sell out, this year would be that year based on the lineup discussions alone.

However, I think Superfly might know a thing or two more than me when it comes to selling Bonnaroo tickets, so let’s take their word on this one. Get tickets now. If you show up and put a finger in the air and I see you, you will be publicly humiliated on Live Music Blog. You have been warned.

  1. Color me a skeptic, but I don’t see this year’s Bonnaroo selling as well as years past due to the lineup, regardless of what they say.

    Promoters always use the “tickets are selling fast” routine to try and make people think they better buy now or risk getting shut out.

    While I have 0 proof, I think it isn’t just coincidental that all Bonnaroos so far have sold out in advance. With the way they process ticket holders into the festival site, I don’t think they are equipped to do on-site ticket sales, or to be more specific, handle the ticketless masses that would try to sneak in or just hang around, so each year, regardless of advanced ticket sales, they say the festival is sold out. I could be wrong, but based on memory, have you ever noticed they only offer ticket shipping, no willcall?

    In some ways it is genius, the festival is so big that no one can tell how many people are there, and they have people trained to buy advanced tickets – something many festivals have a hard time getting patrons to do.

    So yes, if you plan on going I would purchase advance tickets because I bet that within 1 week of the festival, they announce it is sold out.

  3. unless something has changed since the first and 3rd year, there was always plenty of tickets for sale on the way in. most of the time for about 20 or 30 bucks. several friends have gone up there without tickets the past couple of years, just to get the cheap ones at the gate. they may sell out, but some people always buy too many tickets. i would bet there will plenty of extras at the gate. i won’t be coming, so someone will have to tell me if im right.

  5. I am not sure if they will sell out, but I think they are not too far off either. Each ticket is in numbered order and from others I have talked to, the highest one I have seen was is the 64,000’s that was purchased the 2nd week in May. There is a guy who had a ticket around 61,000, so that was 3,000 in a week. I am sure they are in the 70,000’s by now.
