Live Nation increases security measures in wake of Manchester bombing

This post was originally published on this site

In wake of the bombing in Manchester last weekend at an Ariana Grande concert, Live Nation has increased its security measures in hopes of preventing future catastrophes.

A notice issued to venues reads as follows:

“Due to enhanced security procedures, no bags or backpacks will be permitted into the venue except for small personal bags or purses (12″x12″x6″ max) or clear 1 gallon bags. All bags will be subject to a search. We encourage you to not bring in any bag whatsoever and make use of the express ‘no bag’ lanes.”

The statement was originally posted on Sasquatch Music Festival’s Facebook wall, but it has since been hidden. The extent of the new guidelines and how they will affect individual festivals has yet to be seen.

Live Nation is the company behind some of the country’s biggest festivals, such as EDC Las Vegas, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and more.

Using a lottery approach to their latest project, Live Nation Entertainment has just announced a never-before seen “Festival Passport” – giving access to over 90 music festivals around the world throughout the rest of 2017. Including massive events like EDC Las Vegas, Creamfields, and Electric Forest, Live Nation will release one thousand exclusive passes May 22 at 10AM Pacific Time. Notably, sold-out events will also be accessible with the passport.

A dream come true for destination festival fanatics, and wanderlust-driven individuals, Live Nation is offering this pass for $799 (not including transportation, accommodation, or airfare). To combat scalpers from acquiring the passes, Live Nation ensures that these all sales will be non-transferable, and must be used by the person who purchased it.

Making this opportunity run as seamless as possible, all the ticket-holder has to do is show up to the event with their Festival Passport, and go to will call with their valid ID to obtain their event wristband. Passports are available for purchase here.
