Festivals For The Cost-Conscious Country Fan

Nov 14th, 2008 // 1 Comment

Money’s tight for most people these days and with ticket sales across the board projected to be down significantly in 2009, Goldenvoice, the promoters who put on Coachella and Stagecoach, has actually thought outside the box a bit and announced a layaway plan for the country festival. Tickets for Stagecoach are a pretty reasonable $99 for two days of watching headlining sets by Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley (as well as Ralph Stanley and the Reverend Horton Heat). But if you just don’t have the scratch at the moment, you can put half of the ticket’s face value (plus Ticketmaster fees) down now, and pay the balance on April 9. Or you can put ten percent down, and pay down the balance on a month-by-month basis. No such deals are available for single-day passes, although they are for camping packages. Whether a similar offer will be available for Coachellagoers is unknown (for some reason, I doubt it), but it’s nice to see a festival organizer make some acknowledgment of how much of a commitment going to a festival entails.

    Has Horton Heat gone country, or is this gonna be the same ol’ rockabilly?
