  8. Book in early and buy your tickets with the Visa Pre-sale - Some events have very limited seating and have a lot of people wanting to go.  We recommend setting a reminder for when tickets go on sale (Visa Pre-sale is on from March 20, and general release tickets are on sale from March 23) and booking as soon as possible, which means planning your festival now.  Pop-Ups don't require tickets, however some venues allow you to book (and we recommend that you do!)
