6,027 Angry Ravers Launch "Boycott Ultra Music Festival" Facebook Campaign
Currently, general-admission tix cost $399.95, plus fees.
Now that ticket prices are higher, though, the servers are running smoothly. But apparently, it's not because of decreased demand in the face of a price hike. Nah, it's just because UMF is really, really mean and hates dance music fans. Obvi.
"UMF dangled $150 early bird tickets over our heads and laughed at us all as the server crawled along, eventually crashing. The price quickly rose to $500 per ticket and then miraculously, the site loads fast! Join the cause, BOYCOTT ULTRA!"
That's the official Boycott Ultra Music Festival page description. The final ticket price they've come up with includes taxes and fees and rounds up by $10.
The page has some support. It's garnered more than 5,000 "likes" in less than five hours, according to its own post. And now it's membership is headed toward 7,000.
So, what is the ultimate goal? Are the ravers trying to shut Ultra down? Are they trying to force them into lowering ticket prices?
It's not actually very clear. But what is clear: The ravers against Ultra don't want to fork over anymore cash, and they're ready to leave Peace Love Unity and Respect at the door to get what they want.
