The folks at Matador Records just sent around an email today outlining a few more details on their big 21st Birthday Bash in Las Vegas, NV. The long and the short of it is, $199.00 3 day passes will go on sale this Friday, July 9 at Ticketfly.com. More information below:
A) Price : An initial quantity will be on sales Friday for $199.00. This is for all 3 nights. We’re not selling tickets for the individual nights. After the $199.00 tickets sell out, the price increases to $225. A Ticketfly link will be posted on this site on Thursday, July 8th.
B) VIP ticket. A limited number of VIP packages will be available at $399.00 — details about what you’ll get for the $399 are forthcoming. You’ll have the ability to upgrade from the regular tickets, assuming the VIP tickets aren’t sold out.
C) Venue. The room in question is the 2100 seat Pearl at the Palms.
D) Rooms at the Palms. Starting Friday, you’ll have the opportunity to reserve standard rooms at the Palms for the discounted rate of $99 per night (the full 3 nights of the festival, only). The rooms feature two double bed and occupancy of up to 4 persons is allowed. The above rate is only available when purchasing tickets thru us. If you are interested in upgrading to a larger room or a suite you will be able to do so after purchasing the standard room. You will be credited for the cost of the standard room ($297). Note: All ticket prices include the hotel room cost.
(ADDENDUM : Just to clear up any confusion, if, for example, you’re buying 4 tickets to the shows, the $99 per night hotel fee can cover up to 4 people. $297 over 3 nights divided by 4 is hopefully not an crazy amount to charge for rooms in a world class resort).
E) MORE BANDS. OK, we’re working on it. But in addition to the 19 artists confirmed on the above poster, we can confirm the original lineup of COME — Thalia Zedek, Chris Brokaw, Sean O’Brien and Arthur Johnson — will be participating. Actually, we already know who some of the other bands are, we’re just trying to drag this out. MORE MATABLOG CONTENT between now and October!
F) Set times – we’ll post these the week before the event.
G) These shows are open to All Ages. However, access to the casino floor is limited to those 21 and over.
H) WHAT ABOUT LAS VEGAS HUMANS? Las Vegas’ Zia Records is selling
50100 tickets to “The Lost Weekend” starting Friday, July 9 at noon. You’ll need a Nevada I.D.
