6 practical steps to fix the concert ticketing system

Pitchfork suggests "several approaches that ticketing companies, public policy makers, and the music community could follow to make buying concert tickets a slightly less infuriating experience:

  • Stagger the presales for big tours
  • Abolish surprise fees
  • Unwind Ticketmaster’s merger with Live Nation
  • Keep resellers in check
  • Give artists a choice on dynamic pricing
  • Remember the Bandcamp model, and that small can be beautiful."
