Re: WEAK TICKET AND ARMBANDS
It’s Live Nation.
To tell you the truth…I haven’t seen a nice ticket since the 70’s.
Is this the only big fest you go to? Not being snarky it's just that most of the fests we go to have spiffy tix or armbands.
My first music fest was in 1969 and the ticket was probably pretty nice…who can remember. I went to countless concert in South FL. Saved a few concert tickets through the years that in fact were very nice. Led Zeppelin, Elton John & a Deep Purple headlining show that listed many acts of the day. The then unknown, opening act wasn’t listed though, ZZ Top, whose limo we followed to the show and they graciously waved us in the back gates. I still have the whole ticket for that one. My brother Frank has a great collection of concert posters, hand bills and vinyl records.
You ask if Wanee is the only big fest
I go to, the answer is pretty much yes. I did also go to the Peach Music Fest last year in Scranton ,PA on Montage Mountain.

Another Live Nation event with print at home tickets and upon arrival you got a vinyl wristband in yellow for the 3 day and orange for camping.
And some country fest were pretty much the same. Southern Ground in Nashville (went just to see Gregg Allman) and Runaway Country here in hometown, Melbourne, FL had nondescript tickets and wristbands.
So I guess I need to get out more and collect those sparkly tickets with woven wristbands.
Let me ask you if these spiffy collectables you speak of are from events produced by Live Nation?
