Live Nation Entertainment (LNE) has expanded its Festival Passport scheme, launched last year, allowing access to more than 100 festivals across the world for a single fee.

Costing $999, a rise of $200, tickets will be valid for 10 more events than last year’s 90, with the number of tickets on offer rising from 1,000 to 2,500. LNE is also offering 100 similar VIP passes priced at $5,000 each.

Among festivals included in the package are the Netherlands’ Pinkpop (cap. 60,000), Germany’s Rock Im Park (70,000) and Download Australia (50,000), Electric Daisy Carnival in Japan, Las Vegas and Orlando, and Lollapalooza in Paris, Berlin and Chicago.

“Music festivals are all about the experience and we created Festival Passport as an innovative way to amplify that for music fans across all of our 100+ festivals worldwide,” says LNE chief marketing officer Lisa Licht.

Fans register for tickets through LNE-owned Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform and are required to show photo ID to enter events.

The Passport is valid until April 2019, with ticket-holders required to contact chosen festivals two weeks in advance to confirm their attendance.
