How To Score Tickets In A Crazy Concert Season

With summer concert season just around the corner, we set our collective gaze to some of the hottest tours and festivals recently announced. Some of the biggest names in the industry have massive tours coming up, and you do not want to miss it. With all these high demand acts, sometimes you need an insider who can help you secure the hottest tickets, as well as to tell you what to expect from each show and venue. Do not fret, our dear music fan we have you covered. Our friends at TicketCrusader ( have the inside track to some of the hottest shows. Looking for tickets for Justin Timberlake or Pink!? Of course, they have those, but more indie acts like Lord Huron are also found on this site. This is truly a resource for fans. Not only do they provide a platform to buy and sell tickets, but they also give you presale codes so you can make sure you do not miss that once in a lifetime concert. Not only that, but they help you navigate those more well-known ticket sites that often stick you with ridiculous fees.


Speaking of the hottest shows, here are some of the best festivals coming up this spring.


Sasquatch! Music Festival

When: May 25-27

Where: The Gorge, Washington

This one is jam-packed with exciting acts. Sure you have your big names like Bon Iver, David Byrne, and The National, but a festival is known for it’s smaller print acts. This is what makes this one special. Names like Julien Baker, Algiers, and Hurray For The Riff Raff should get you super stoked for one the best festivals around.

Fortress Festival

When: April 28-29

Where: Fort Worth, Texas

Where this one lacks in amount of acts, it makes up for diversity and fun experiences. Headliner Father John Misty is solid enough, but mix in indie darling Courtney Barnett with acts like De La Soul and RZA, and you have something truly special and worthy of your festival dollars.







Shaky Knees

When: May 4-6

Where: Central Park, Atlanta, Georgia

So this is a killer line up. Jack White and Queens of the Stone Age get top billing but there are enough here to grab the attention of any music fan. Punk favorites The Distillers are making their triumphant return alongside new coming rock savants Greta Van Fleet and party rocker Andrew W.K. One of the up and coming acts to check out here are Mt. Joy who has racked up millions of streams from their hit “Astrovan”.

So whatever tour you hit up this year, make sure you stop by first. You will be glad you did. Enjoy the season and rock on!
