MATADOR TURNS 21 TICKET DETAILS
Here’s an update to how to score tickets to one of the best weekends in your life. It could possibly end up like a scene in “Hangover”, you know, without the crazy person jumping out of your trunk.
From MatadorTickets for “The Lost Weekend” aka Matador’s 21st birthday celebrations at The Palms will go on sale this Friday morning at 9am, PST. Here’s the details you’ve been hassling all of us about over the last week (and don’t think we don’t appreciate it) 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.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 50 tickets to “The Lost Weekend” starting Friday, July 9 at noon. You’ll need a Nevada I.D.If you’ve any questions, email@example.com is the place to go. Thanks.
