Bumbershoot 2013 is just a few months behind us, but already savvy concert-goers can save some serious scratch by planning ahead. The music festival is putting tickets for next year's event on sale -- for one week only.
From now until Thursday, music-lovers can pick up tickets for just $31 per day, or $93 for the full weekend, with no fees and no added charges. The sale ends November 1, or when 2,000 of the discounted tickets have been sold.
Single-day tickets usually cost over $50, and Bumbershoot officials promise that this is the "absolute lowest price" tickets will be available.
There is one sizable caveat to buying ahead: The lineup of the three-day festival likely won't be announced until at least March of next year, which means fans are buying tickets without knowing who's actually playing. And because single-day tickets can only be used on the specific date for which they're sold, fans have to either take a leap of faith in choosing a date (and hope the artists they want to see are playing on that day), or buy a three-day pass and hope enough artists they like are on the bill.
Last year's Bumbershoot lineup included Death Cab for Cutie, fun., Kendrick Lamar and Heart, and drew higher attendance numbers than the struggling festival had seen in years.
Tickets are available through Bumbershoot's website.
