Call us crazy, but we can’t live without a regular dose of those unparalleled, life-changing festival experiences. Are you fest obsessed like us? Here are some tell tale signs.

All Fools’ Day, a yearly tradition centered around pulling pranks on your friends. Yes! What could be sweeter?! It may not be a recognized holiday but it is celebrated around the world and has been for centuries. One of the earliest references of April Fool’s Day dates back to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales which was written in 1392!
April Fool’s Day is not only celebrated amongst friends but even public media has gotten involved on the humor. Remember in 1957 when the BBC pulled the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest trick? Or maybe all of the hilarious April’s Fools gags on Saturday Night Live and the Tonight Show.

Ah, the age-old mystery of the presale ticket. Before an event goes on sale, ticket wizards pull Houdini-like stunts and grab tickets out of thin air before anyone else can blink—right? Well, not exactly. There’s more to a presale than that and it doesn’t require any magic to take advantage—you only need to know where to look…
Ticket Presales Defined
The presale period is when certain event tickets go on sale to a specified group of fans, usually as a reward for their membership or customer loyalty. In advance or during the presale timeframe*, these select fans are given a code which allows them to search for tickets to buy. Fans aren’t guaranteed a ticket during the presale, but they’re given the opportunity to browse ahead of other fans who don’t have the code.
2013 was a big year for big and little audiences—that is, live entertainment for the whole family. Did you see any of these fam-tastic shows?
If so, we’d like to know—as would our other family-fun fans. Be sure to check your email after an event to review the shows you’ve attended. We’d love to share about your unforgettable experiences on our website.
