US music festivals now offering payment plans for tickets

Bonnaroo and Langerado come up with recession solution for music fans

The Bonnaroo and Langerado music festivals have responded to the economic crisis in the US by offering payment plans on weekend tickets to the festivals in 2009.

Langerado, which takes place in Miami, FL in March and features performances by Death Cab For Cutie, The Pogues, Snoop Dogg and Ryan Adams And The Cardinals among others, will be offering a layaway plan for purchasers of weekend passes, with three payments spread out over three months. Tickets start at $120 for weekend passes.

Meanwhile, Bonnaroo is offering specially-priced pre-sale tickets for the festival until December 31. During this period, tickets will be available for five payments of $50.00 plus applicable fees through the festival’s payment plan.

Bonnaroo 2009 will run from June 11-14 next year on a 700-acre farm 60 miles southeast of Nashville, TN. The line-up has yet to be announced.
