Tips on Scoring Cheap Music Tickets

Tips on Scoring Cheap Music Tickets

When you’re on a budget, whether you are a student, fresh out of school, or saving up, it doesn't mean you need to sacrifice all the fun in your life. It does mean that you need to look for the cheapest way to do things though. All work and no play makes for a very dull life, so you need to be able to relax and have fun, but still stay in your budget. One option is to seek out local music concerts, but these can sometimes be very expensive, especially when a big name is in town.
To help your student budget go a little further and so you don’t have to miss out when there’s a festival going on, here are some tips to help you source the cheapest concert tickets.

Buy Your Tickets as Early as Possible
Ticket prices for concert tours, concerts and music festivals tend to be cheaper as soon as tickets are available for sale. It pays to keep abreast of what’s happening in the music scene, who are touring and what regular festivals are coming up. Once the cheap tickets have been sold prices generally rise. They do, however, dip again right before the show itself.
Sign Up for Email Lists
If you’ve got a favorite artist or group sign up for their email list. The internet has made it really easy to find the best deals and special promotions. You can set alerts, so you’re notified as soon as tickets are available, thereby beating the crowds.

Keep an Eye on Social Media
There are a number of sites such as Facebook and Craigslist where you’ll regularly find people selling tickets, simply because they’ve found themselves unable to attend. They’re not trying to make a profit, so you’ll find they’re not being sold at outrageous prices.  
Buy Tickets at the Venue
Online tickets sales have revolutionized the way people buy concert tickets, but it’s still possible to buy them in person at the venue. Just because a show is sold out online, doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to buy tickets by the old-fashioned method. It’s a bit of a risk but worth it if you get to score a cheap ticket.

Festival or Event Volunteering
Many music festivals rely on volunteers for cleaning up, selling merchandise, scanning tickets and a wealth of other easy jobs. Volunteer and when you’re not working, you can check out the latest bands. You might get in for free or with a substantial discount.
Avoid First Nights
Artists often choose to play more than one night in a city, and you’ll be able to save money by not buying tickets for the first night. These tend to be the most expensive. You might also get a better deal if you choose a concert on a weekday or weeknight as these can often be cheaper than the weekends.
