Secondary market ticket prices have fluctuated from year to year in the $300 to $350 range. 2012 Sasquatch tickets sold for an average of $321, only $6 above the face value price of $315. Looking at the chart below, you can see the obvious trend that ticket prices drop as the event draws closer. Even though tickets sold out for the last two festivals, tickets on the secondary market became a lot more affordable for those most patient, and even sold well below face value. There is nearly a $200 price difference between tickets purchased in February opposed to May.
2012 looks a lot different because it didn't sell out until March or something. 2011 is a much closer model as to what is happening this year.
