It seems that everyone selling goods and services are putting together some sweet deals for the holiday season. Even though Bumbershoot was only a few months ago our friends at one of The Emerald City’s most storied festivals are already gearing up for next year. For $75.00 anyone that is a e-newsletter subscriber will gain admission for all three days of Bumbershoot. The deal starts Friday, November 25 at 12:01 and ends Monday, November 28 at 11:59.
Bumbershoot takes place over Labor Day weekend, September 1-3, 2012 at Seattle Center, announces the Thanksgiving Insider Deal and Holiday Ticket Sale.
From the official Press release…
Perfect for the music and art fans on any holiday shopping list, the Thanksgiving Insider Deal will feature admission to all three days of Bumbershoot for $75, with NO FEES* exclusively for BumberFan e-newsletter subscribers. This is the best value for Bumbershoot 2012—a 50% savings off full price single-day tickets, which will be $50/day during Bumbershoot weekend.
Access to the fee-free* Thanksgiving Insider Deal requires a unique one-time use pass-code, which will be emailed directly to pre-registered BumberFans on Thanksgiving. All fans intending to take advantage of this offer, including those currently subscribed to the BumberFan e-newsletter, must visit http://onereel.org/newsletters/prior to Wednesday, November 23 at 11:59 PM to update their free BumberFan profile in order to receive their pass-code.
For those who miss the four-day Thanksgiving Insider Deal, the Holiday Ticket Sale will begin for the general public on Tuesday, November 29 and will feature the same extraordinary 3-day discount through the holidays, but regular service and processing fees will apply.
As an added benefit, all holiday shoppers will be able to lock in this offer to use at a later date. For each pair of 3-day admissions purchased during this promotion, early ticket buyers will have the opportunity to pick up one additional weekend admission for $75 next summer, when the 50% discount is no longer publicly available. Great for last minute out-of-town visitors or brand new friends, $75 for a full weekend of music and art discovery is a deal worth sharing.
Kids 10 and under continue to be admitted free with an accompanying adult. Seniors and patrons with permanent disabilities will be offered a 50% daily discount at Festival gates ($25/day). Valid ID is required.
Additional Bumbershoot details, including lineup and other ticket information, such as the return of the popular and flexible Any Day ticket, will be announced in 2012.
Bumbershoot tickets will be available online at http://bumbershoot.strangertickets.com. Patrons may choose to print tickets at home, or elect to have tickets mailed or held at will call*.
*Service fees waived during the Thanksgiving Insider Deal for print-at-home tickets only. Additional fees will be applied for optional will call or mail delivery.
