Post handling fee is too much!
I have no problem paying the ticket price of 160.00, for an awesome lineup in a cool arena like the wanee fest!!

But i do have a problem with a 22.00 handling fee , thats a little pricey, after buying the ticket,,, can someone else relate to the price gouge im feeling??

That has been a big problem for years. Everytime I get a ticket there are about 3 different 'fees'. Handling, service, and parking. :evil: Sucks! What makes it worse is that there is nothing you can do about it. Total monopoly. Just bend over and take it or don't go to any shows :(

My guess is that a piece goes to Suwanee County to cover the cost of support services for such a crowd, and mayhaps a donation to local non-profits...for reference bonnaroo fees this year 23.10.

I think all that money goes to livenation,is a service fee for them to sell us tickets to a show they are allready promoting,

I have to say...don't have a clue what it takes for LN to put this amount of bands together for Wanee...seems like a lot, but overall even with the service charge..this is a GREAT DEAL for 3 days of incredible music!!

I spend 22 bucks in beer on any given weekend night...and all it does is go straight to my gut! it's all in how you look at it. :)
