SeatGeek’s June 2010 Bonnaroo Concert TicketBeat™ Report

Bonnaroo June 10-13-2010

Bonnaroo Music Festival Report Summary:

We are all familiar with the multitude of hot bands, rappers, DJs, and comedians at Bonnaroo, but no one ever speaks of Bonnaroo as a “hot bargain”.  We decided to analyze ticket data on the resale market to provide a unique perspective on the value of a Bonnaroo ticket and to determine if it is really worth the $234.50 price of admission.

Among its target demographic, the yearly Bonnaroo Festival is slotted into the calendars of festivalgoer’s like a parent would plan for their child’s birthday or graduation.  For a period of about 5 days, a bevy of college students, hip young adults, music aficionados, and casual music fans descend upon Great Stage Park on a 700 acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. They come to hang out with like-minded music lovers and to see as many live performances as possible from the vast lineup including Weezer, John Butler Trio, Norah Jones, The National, Kings of Leon, and Dave Matthews Band!  Understandably, most festivalgoer’s are so impressed with the lineup that they pay the ticket price without even considering the value of that ticket.  Well, fortunately, here at SeatGeek, we do the math to save you money on concert tickets.  We crunched the numbers to answer the question: is Bonnaroo a bargain?

Bonnaroo and Average Ticket Prices

BonnarooTicket Price Comparison:

There are over 100 live artists at Bonnaroo, but it’s impossible to catch every one.  We isolated a small sample of artists performing at Bonnaroo and compared their combined average ticket prices on the resale market in Spring/Summer to that of a $234.50 Bonnaroo ticket. The outcome is staggering.

A Bonnaroo attendee will save nearly $685 dollars paying for a Bonnaroo pass instead of paying the average ticket price for these artists on the resale market.  An ambitious Bonnaroo attendee could catch even more shows, and the savings we calculated doesn’t factor in top draws like Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Tenacious D, Damian Marley, Nas, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and B.O.B.! If you like music, comedy, or just having a good time, this is the best way to spend your money on live performances.  So pack up your freshest jeans, sandals, t-shirts, and friends and load them all into a RV with a tent, water, food, and some beer – because you can’t afford to miss out on Bonnaroo this summer.
