Everyone loves concerts. They are the perfect opportunity to let loose with your friends and have the time of your life singing along to your favourite artist. There’s absolutely nothing like seeing your favourite musician perform live right in front of you and thus a concert is definitely an experience of a lifetime. The only downside to the whole thing is the process of actually GETTING to the concert, or in other words, scoring a ticket. Concert tickets are often very expensive and cannot be afforded by a large number of people. Luckily there is a way out of this and in this article we have listed out some ways to get concert tickets for free.
1: PERFORMING A SERVICE FOR TICKETS:
One way of scoring a free ticket is by promoting the concert itself. Check the website and social media pages for the band that you know is coming to your city and see if they have a street team. Join this team and help them spread the word about the concert by telling everyone you know, putting up posters, promoting it on Instagram, facebook etc. Usually, services like this are ‘paid’ in free tickets and often VIP passes to go backstage and meet the artist.
2: SUBSCRIBE TO A SEAT FILLER MEMBERSHIP:
Another way of getting a free ticket is by subscribing to a seat filler membership. This will give you access to a large number of events around town including concerts, plays, expos etc. as a way of helping to fill any unsold seats. Through this membership, you are provided with open doors to most events of your choice.
3: BECOME A VOLUNTEER FOR THE EVENT: Check the band’s website months beforehand and see if they are asking for volunteers to come help volunteer. As a volunteer, you will be able to help out with the band’s equipment, lighting, sound, venue and many other factors that will often give you a chance to meet the band before they even perform. The icing on the cake is that volunteers get to go the concert for free!
4: CALL INTO YOUR LOCAL RADIO STATIONS:
Radio stations often do concert ticket giveaways a few weeks before a concert, so another way to score a free ticket is by listening in on the radio and seeing if you have a chance. Call as many times as you can and send in whatever answers or messages they ask you for, and you have a good chance of emerging the lucky winner who gets to go to the concert for free.
5: USE YOUR CONTACTS:
As a final resort, another way to get free tickets is to use your contacts and get in touch with anyone that is a part of the music industry or is involved with the concert in any way, be it, managers, sponsors, promoters, or even musicians themselves. Tell them how much you would love to go and ask if there is any way they can score you a free ticket. If you are lucky, the odds will be in your favour and you’ll get the ticket.
