Moondance Jam Discount Concert Festival Tickets

Several CheapoLifers from Minnesota and surrounding states have asked me where to get cheap tickets to Moondance Jam in Walker.

Moondance Jam is a regional outdoor rock festival. It’s four days of music, camping, and good times with friends. I personally attended the 2002, 2003, and 2004 Moondance Jams and thoroughly enjoyed each one. Headliners this year are KISS and Stone Temple Pilots. Plus Eddie Money, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, the Outlaws, Cracker, .38 Special, Great White, Paul Rodgers, Burton Cummings, and many more great entertainers will perform at the Jam.

I don’t have a specific source for discount Moondance Jam tickets, but I do have a suggestion: Many radio stations have shopping shows where they sell hotel/motel rooms, restaurant certificates, tickets, and other similar items at a substantial discount. The various businesses give these items in exchange for advertising airtime on the radio station. It’s known as “trade” or “trade out” within the radio industry. Smaller, hometown stations are most likely to air shopping shows.

In 2003, I was able to obtain a 4 day Moondance Jam General Admission Pass for just $50.00 by purchasing it on one of these shopping shows. At the time, the “official” price (face value) of this ticket was $100.00. If your local station(s) have a shopping show, call and ask if they have Moondance Jam tickets. Many radio stations will list their shopping show items on the station’s website. VIP tickets can also be acquired in this manner, although they are harder to find, due to their higher value and relative scarcity.

Why pay full gate price for Moondance Jam tickets if you don’t have to? Ticket discounts are out there and waiting to be found. Happy hunting and enjoy the Jam in Walker, Minnesota this year!
