Did you know that starting this year that the price for a ticket to the TRF is different depending on which day of the weekend you go to the festival? That’s right; going on a Sunday will save you $3 per adult and $2 per child when you purchase your ticket online or at one of at one of the ticket outlet locations*.
Savings could add up pretty quickly. I figure with a little planning the average family could save the cost of one or two beer easily.
Why the push for Sunday? Whilst I’m sure the conspiracy theorists and cynical have their own ideas, the real reason is to improve the attendance experience for everyone.
Yes, I know it’s shocking, but the TRF want you to enjoy your visit so you’ll come back again and maybe tell your friends what a great time you had.
One of the keys to that is to try and balance the daily attendance. If one particular day is too crowded, the people that attend that day don’t have as good of a time and are less inclined to come back another time.
If it works for your schedule, you should do yourself, and your wallet, a favour and come to the festival on a Sunday. That’s what I’ve always suggested and now you have extra incentive to do so.
