Remember a time when you could buy 3 warheads for 5 cents? When petrol was below 50 cents a liter and there was no such thing as ‘designer’ coconut water on our shelves for $4.95? The first festival I ever went to was Big Day Out in 2007 and my ticket was $54 (a lot of pocket money was saved for that). Seeing Marilyn Manson smack a guy live on stage in Adelaide and Courtney Hole flounder around was totally worth it. So just how much money are people willing to pay for a truly memorable experience?
The crazy cats at Fuzzy are about to find out having released the world’s most flamboyant and ridiculously super-sized festival ticket ever concocted the ‘Ridiculously Expensive ticket’.
