A friend can't go for weird personal reasons and has asked me to sell her tickets...she's asking 250 per ticket or 500 for pair...I'll be on site very late Thursday in vendors campground..if someone wants them we can hook up any time before noon Friday...after that I am working....If someone who is coming over on Saturday and wants a better deal I'm down...don't have time to be a broker
THESE ARE GONE

I know this is all just talk but.....I've actually ran a very, very small one day festival and I also interned at Bumbershoot (on the sponsorship team)...one of the biggest costs comes in the form of insurance you have to be indemnified against someone getting hurt. Usually underwritten by an insurance company who who regularly covers this sort of thing. That indemnification does not come cheap...then there is the rental fee for the property...and the cost of the police...All those grant county cops on hand at Sasquatch are getting paid by Sasquatch...and wages for all the personnel to work the merch booths, ticket booths, grounds crew, beer stands etc....then there is the stage crew, lighting experts, sound guys, private security etc etc...And we haven't even started talking about artist fees and the transportation costs getting to and from the event....And all those sponsors at Sasquatch? Many provide in-kind sponsorships, which means very little money changes hands - rather there is a trade off in advertising or services...you would need very deep pockets and a solid business plan to get an investment and probably would not see any money from banks...but that's just my own 2 cents
Actually pretty Lights has put his music up free as a Torrent
"When Pretty Lights reached out to me to work with him, I got so excited because I knew I would have the ability to be creative from a marketing and business perspective. PL gives ALL of his music away for free, and answers to exactly 0 people (no label) about how / when / or why to release his music. What was the first thought that popped into my head for potential collaborations for spreading his music beyond his already massive & die-hard fan base? Bit Torrent."
