Live Nation’s “Concert Week” is a music-lover-on-a-budget’s dream: over 3,800 concerts all over the country for $25 a pop. From May 10 to May 16, you can catch many artists like Beck & Phoenix, Fall Out Boy, and Snoop Dog in your local venue (if you’re lucky enough to have them be performing there) for less than the taxes and fees of a Taylor Swift concert ticket. Here’s who to expect and how to get tickets, but be warned that some might run out quick.

What is Live Nation’s Concert Week?

Concert Week 2023

Concert Week is a nationwide, week-long event that Live Nation started back in 2018. Tickets for many artists will be going for $25, including fees but before taxes. The limit of tickets per show varies and is set by the venue. You can read more from their FAQs here.

How to get Concert Week tickets

On Wednesday, May 10 at 10 a.m. ET, 3,800 select nationwide shows will have tickets labeled “Concert Week Promotion.” You simply pick your $25 tickets, add them to your cart, and proceed to checkout without a promo code. The sale will run until the end of promotion, on May 16 at 12 a.m. ET. If you’re a Verizon or Rakuten customer, you get access a day earlier than everyone else.

You can start planning ahead by searching by event, venue, or artist on Live Nation, or finding the venues nearby to see who’ll be performing between May 10 to May 16. And some venues might be selling the tickets for close to the same price already. For example, lawn tickets to watch Incubus perform in North Carolina are $36 before fees and taxes. But $25 is a great deal for many of these concerts, though. Catching Young the Giant in New Jersey, for example, runs $87 for general admission tickets before fees and taxes.
