Midnight deadline for cheap Bumbershoot tix

Every time The Seattle Times publishes a story about Bumbershoot, many readers comment that they no longer go to the Labor Day weekend music and arts festival because it’s too expensive.

Commenters: This one’s for you.

All day this Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Nov. 25-28, you can buy a three-day pass to Bumbershoot 2012 for $75, without fees. To buy the same tickets daily at the gates, Sept. 1-3, would cost you $150.

Granted: 75 bucks is not free — that’s the “price” that people remember mournfully from the good old days of Bumbershoot, back in the ’70s. But I’ve written it before and will write it again: Compared to a concert ticket or even the cost of a 3D movie, a full day at Bumbershoot for under $30 is an excellent entertainment deal. That’s true regardless of the lineup, which has not yet been announced, because you’re buying the experience of art and music busting out all over Seattle Center.

Here’s the hitch: You must visit this site before midnight tonight (Wednesday, Nov. 23) to sign up for access to the deal. Or start on Bumbershoot’s website.

See you at Bumbershoot.
