CMV Tickets 150 RMB for a Limited Time: See Joss Stone, Jesus Mary Chain, White Lies & More

I wasn’t really planning on covering much of CMV, mostly because I’m probably not gonna make it there this weekend with too many commitments already but for those of you planning to go, there is a limited time deal on whereby you can get a 3 day pass for 150 RMB. That’s like, I mean it’s really like dirt freaking cheap folks. Keep in mind, the regular presale price is RMB480, and the door price is RMB580!! If you were hesitating because of the cost, then this is a deal you’re definitely going to want to jump on.

( Hat tip to City Weekend for the Heads Up)
For that price, you get two days of music with Joss Stone, Jesus and Mary Chain, White Lies etc….
It’s only available until May 18th, so get ’em while they’re hot.
Here is the extra info from Send Me Tickets:

no idea what prompted such a reduction in prices… I’m sure some folks will be ticked off if they already got theirs at the full price but hey, a good deal is a good deal. I’m considering it for day two on its own.. will have to see!

    i’m sure there’s a reason for this drastic price reduction…

    yup… maybe the bad taste left in people’s mouths after last year’s mess? I’d be all over this thing if it was closer downtown but i’m still worn out from festivalitus.

    i’m guessing either a) pre-sale has been really bad or b) a last-minute cancellation… or both?

    as of now, there are no changes to the lineup. I heard rumors that JAMC were having troubles, but I later got confirmation from organizers they’re arriving in Beijing today and all is well.

    Apparently these low ticket prices were worked out as a side deal with, which was awesome of them. I agree with Josh in saying that presale probably wasn’t as good as the fest anticipated.

    But according to the CMV people today, unless the local authorities chill the hell out, the crowd-control fences are still going to be there and at this point, the fest is looking dry. organizers are still trying to work it out.

    I have to say I take MASSIVE umbrage with this group buy thing. Seriously, talk about pissing off your audience, by releasing cheap tickets after most hardcore fans have already purchased full priced presale. more over at the Radar

    Am I allowed to cross post?

    I was surprised. There’s beer and no fences after all. Its a pretty comfortable festival to go to, despite the distance.
