On sale at Noon, sold out at 12:19…..less that 20-mins and now all GABF sessions are sold out for 2013. FYI tickets this year cost $75 and if you really want them badly enough, I’m sure you can find them on Stubhub for the right price.
This comment from the GABF on ticket sales:
Hi Everyone. We’re reading your comments, and we hear your frustration about scalpers and the secondary market. We share those concerns and wish there was a feasible fix. Unfortunately, there’s no perfect way to successfully avoid a secondary market for hot tickets—whether for popular concerts, sporting events or festivals like the GABF.
There are measures in place to decrease access for scalpers, including ticket limits we set for GABF ticket purchases (enforced by Ticketmaster), and Ticketmaster’s anti-bot and other security measures. Does this prevent scalper access? No, but it does decrease it. We will continue to evaluate options and solutions going forward.
