If you’re a music fan, and want to take advantage of the whole festival, you can purchase a club pass, which gets you into nearly 250 shows (the 7 main headlining acts are separate), or you can pay per show at the door. Or take advantage of some of the great FREE concerts that will be happening!! They have over 80 performances that are completely free to the public! Check their schedule for a complete listing. Do some planning ahead of time- there are so many shows to see!!
