EXIT Festival and Sunburn Top “Best Value Music Festivals” In the World
With 2022 festival season in sight, the industry is primed for a comeback.
As noted by Quartz, the average price of a concert ticket increased from just $12 in 1981 to $64 in 2017, which is nearly double the rate of inflation over the same period. Plus, given the sheer volume of artists on the average music festival lineup combined with the higher production budget, the premium per ticket well exceeds that of the average show.
In a data-driven exercise, Cool Camping sought to compile a list of the "Best Value Festivals" using a distinct set of criteria. The company compared the price consumers pay for tickets against a variety of factors, including a combination of a proprietary "Headliner Value" formula, the price of a beer, the cost of food, and the number of days.
