Traditionally, basic human needs include food, shelter, and clothing. Here at Ticketmaster, we believe one necessity is glaringly missing from that list: music festivals. 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.
