How to Attend Concerts and Events for Free

I’m excited to be guest-posting today over at Wonder Wherever We Wander!

We are often asked how we manage to make our lifestyle work financially. One part of our answer is the importance of finding dependable sources of location independent income. The other part is that we try to keep our expenses low while still getting out and exploring as we travel. It can be a tricky balance sometimes, so we get really excited when we discover new ways of reducing costs without reducing our experiences. I think everyone can relate to this, whether they travel full-time or not.

So today I’m sharing how we have found a way to attend concerts and events for free! Here’s a sneak-peak:

Attending concerts and festivals can be a lot of fun! Hearing a great speaker can be educational, inspirational and entertaining at the same time. Traveling sometimes presents us with opportunities to go to great events, rather than waiting for them to come to us. But ticket prices can be prohibitive so it isn’t something that we do very often. That might change, though, now that we’ve discovered a way to attend some of these incredible events for free: volunteering!

Last February, I found out that one of my favorite authors would be speaking at an event about an hour away from where we were staying in southern California. I started gathering a group of friends to go with me, and in the end there were five of us ready to fill a car and go. We were excitedly looking forward to a Ladies’ Night but when we tried to buy our tickets, the event was sold out. The disappointment was high, but so was the determination not to give up trying. When we couldn’t get tickets online, we got on the phone. When we couldn’t get them by calling, we jumped on Facebook. We posted on the Facebook event page, hoping someone who had bought tickets might find themselves unexpectedly unable to go and might be looking to sell their seats. Instead, we were offered the opportunity to volunteer. Not only were we able attend the event, but our tickets were free.
