The full, jam-hot line-up for 2016’s Concrete and Grass music festival released into the wild a few days ago, and now that you’ve had time to digest the sheer immensity of awesome music coming your way: let’s help you buy your tickets to our Place Less Ordinary.
We know (and we love) that you’re digging through your closets trying to find that perfect multi-coloured, neon dungaree you swore you’d always wear “someday”, but priorities! Let’s take a look at some important ticketing information first:
Where do I buy tickets? Do I even need a ticket?
There are two ways to obtain your festival tickets: pre-purchase online or at the door (remember that early-bird tickets were sold out in under 3 hours!)
You can buy a single day pass if you so choose, but we’d recommend just getting the full experience with a two-day ticket. It’s more value for money and who knows, you might even discover your new favourite band while waiting for A$AP Ferg to take stage.
If you’re a student between 12-22 years of age, you can buy discounted student tickets. To be eligible, please ensure you bring a valid student I.D to the festival.
The festival is free for children under 1.4m and under 12 years of age.
Alright, now that you’re ready to rave, where can you actually buy these tickets? You can grab yours off several of our partners including:
- Damai or Damai APP (EN/CN) http://en.damai.cn/event/tickets_106550
- Smart Shanghai (EN) http://www.smartshanghai.com/smartticket/concrete_grass_2016
- 今天玩什么 (CN) http://m.jtwsm.cn/proj/10028039.html
We strongly recommend you to purchase your tickets through one of these partners.
You’ve gotten your tickets; how do you get in on the day?
To enter the festival site, you must either have an e-ticket or a paper ticket.
After paying for an e-ticket (such as on 今天玩什么), you should get a scannable QR code, a confirmation text message and a confirmation e-mail, please keep at least one of these for verification.
If you buy a paper ticket (such as on Smart Ticket) – it will be posted to you. Just bring it with you!
Once you’re in…
If you’ve purchased a single day ticket, once you have entered the festival site, DO NOT LEAVE THE SITE! There is no re-entrance for single-day ticket holders.
For two-day festival ticket holders, you will receive a wrist-band – and this is the only proof that you are eligible to enter (and re-enter) the festival on both days. This wrist-band is only valid for one person and if tampered or damaged, entry will be denied. Do not share your wristbands.
We’d recommend bookmarking this piece for handy ticketing information. Remember, if you face any issues, please contact the channel you’re trying to buy tickets from.
We are really stoked to have you join us on the journey to Concrete and Grass.
Get your tickets soonest. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve planned.
