Tis the season for bare feet and bonfires, cold beers and late nights. As spring gets underway, there’s one thing on our minds — music festivals. No summer is complete without one, yet for the majority of families and millennials alike, checking off a music festival from the bucket list is hard to justify. After all, a few hundred bucks can buy a lot of groceries, take a chunk out of student loans, replace those worn-out spheres of rubber you call tires.But with a little planning and preparation, going to a multiday music festival doesn’t have to break the bank. Check out these 13 money saving tips for first-time festivalgoers!#1 FIND A FREE FEST. DUH.Free festivals are more common than you might think, and the line-ups are surprisingly decent, too. Roots artist Woody Pines took the stage in 2011 at Mountain Sports Festival in Asheville, N.C. Big names like G. Love and Jason Isbell have rocked out at the U.S. Whitewater Center’s annual Tuck Fest in Charlotte, N.C. Roanoke’s Go Outside Festival regularly brings in groovin’ tunes from the likes of Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band and The Primate Fiasco. Take advantage of freebies! You might just discover your next favorite band.#2 START SAVING NOWAs in, right now. Or whenever your next paycheck is scheduled. A $350 general admission ticket to Bonnaroo might seem like a lot all at once, but consider this—if you set aside $30 every month for one year, you’d have enough to foot the bill. Can’t bear to miss out on the lineup this year? Some festivals, like Bonnaroo, offer payment plans.#3 BUY EARLYThere’s a reason the saying, “early bird gets the worm,” exists.“Timing is a crucial factor when trying to attend a festival on a budget,” says Jeremiah Jenkins, managing partner for Black Bear Productions, which puts on Red Wing Roots in Mount Solon, Va. “Most festivals have tiered ticketing with prices often raised by 50 percent from the time the tickets go on sale to the price at the gate.”So when in doubt, buy early. In the event you decide not to go, you’ll more than likely be able to resell your ticket for equal, if not greater, value than what you purchased it for originally.#4 STAY CONNECTEDMore than ever, festivals are utilizing social media as a marketing and ticket sales tool. So how does this work in your favor?“A lot of times we put promo codes out there via Facebook,” says Mountain Music Festival Coordinator and ACE Adventure Resort Special Events Coordinator Chris Colin. “We also have Instagram contests and Facebook photo contests where we give away free tickets.”That’s right—give away. As in, free. If you don’t have Instagram yet, you do now.#5 DON’T BOTHER LOOKING THE PARTThere’s absolutely no reason to go out and drop an extra hundred bucks on a cropped tank, hippy skirt, and leather headband just to go to a music festival. Yes, there will be plenty of people putting on their best Woodstock get-up, but how well do you think those moccasins and flowy white cotton threads are going to hold up when the rain hits?#6 KNOW THE FORECASTIt’s the Southeast. You can pretty much guarantee that, at some point, it’s probably going to rain, and that means it’s probably going to be at least 10 degrees cooler. Festivals like The Festy Experience, which take place in the mountains, are especially likely to have unpredictable weather. You could buy an overpriced sweatshirt or rain jacket at the event, sure, but why not come prepared to begin with?#7 HAVE CASHAnd more importantly, set a daily budget for that cash. While many vendors accept credit cards, there are still a large majority of businesses that don’t have that option. Cash is also a friendly gesture to local businesses since it comes with no fees or additional costs. ATMs are usually available onsite, but you’ll have to pay a small fee for the transaction.#8 BRING YOUR OWN FOODThis seems like a no-brainer, but in the last-minute hustle to pack for the weekend, you may feel tempted to opt out of hassling with a cooler. Don’t. At the very least, come with breakfast and lunch covered. The vast majority of events don’t allow outside alcohol, but some may even prohibit outside food, so double-check the rules before you’re forced to sustain yourself on $10 cheeseburgers for three days.#9 SHARE THE LOADThis applies to food, to camping, to gas, heck even to ticket purchasing. The more people you have splitting the cost, the cheaper it is. According to Across-the-Way Productions, Inc., Director of Marketing Sam Calhoun, that logic is changing the way festivals like FloydFest view ticket sales.“We want to make it economical to get the festival,” Calhoun says, citing FloydFest’s HOV-EZ Pass, which includes 4 five-day general admission tickets, two kid tickets, two tent tags, and one onsite park-and-camp pass. “You save 25 to 30 percent of what you would pay for those same items for à la carte, so for four people, or two families, you can make it happen.”Even if you can’t rally enough friends to go in on a lump ticket purchase like the HOV-EZ pass, you can still save some green and go green by carpooling.#10 LEND A HANDThis is likely the easiest and simplest solution to avoiding financial ruin while still getting that quintessential summer festival experience. Most festivals require volunteers to work daily shifts (ranging from two to four hours) in exchange for a ticket, but FloydFest goes as far as to offer work weekends prior to the festival so volunteers can get their work out of the way before the event even kicks off.#11 REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLEMany festivals these days have done away with plastic cups altogether, so if you want to partake in adult beverages onsite, you might be required to purchase a Klean Kanteen or stainless steel pint cup equivalent. The charge is usually minimal, around $5, but every penny adds up. You can also use it at drinking water stations, which are available at most music festivals free of charge.#12 SHOP SOBERFriends don’t let friends drink and shop. There’s nothing like waking up the next morning to a carful of festival memorabilia and records from artists you only half-remember seeing. Stay strong, stick to your daily budget, and if anything, wait till the last day of the festival to make your rounds. Vendors will often hold sales at the end of an event, and are thus going to be more likely to make a deal with you. Especially if you’re sober.#13 DO YOUR RESEARCHFinally, if none of the above has you convinced you can afford to attend a music festival, take a look at the lineups. Even if you’re only familiar with four of the 100 artists performing over the course of the weekend, you’ll likely get a better deal seeing them play in the festival setting versus individually. Concert tickets nowadays are usually $30 or more, and that’s just to see one, maybe two bands. Plus, if those four bands you really like are playing on the same day, you could purchase a one- or two-day pass and save even more.

MichiganThough a glance at the top-line numbers appeared to show Michigan largely accounted for and trending toward Mr. Trump, some of the state’s major population centers had hundreds of thousands of ballots yet to be counted as of early Wednesday. And these could easily tip the state to Mr. Biden, as Democrats have said they expect.Polls taken before the election showed the former vice president considerably ahead, outside the margin of error.Mr. Trump’s lead so far reflects his advantage in the Election Day vote — not the early vote, which is a larger share of the overall ballots cast in the state and favors Mr. Biden. The so-called blue wall states — Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania — had gone to the Democrats in every presidential election since the 1990s until President Trump carried them all in 2016. The three states could again prove decisive as Mr. Trump tries to hold on to the White House.Early vote totals in Michigan and Pennsylvania show the president ahead, while Joseph R. Biden Jr. edged into a narrow lead in Wisconsin on Wednesday morning. But the numbers were incomplete and did not include some of the largest and most heavily Democratic areas in the states.- Advertisement – PennsylvaniaPerhaps no state is staring down a longer counting period than Pennsylvania. As of early Wednesday morning, 5.3 million votes had been counted in Pennsylvania, which represented roughly 65 percent of the estimated vote total in the state. In Philadelphia, only 76,000 absentee ballots out of more than 350,000 were processed in the first 14 hours that officials were allowed to count ballots. Though Philadelphia election officials were working around the clock on the absentee ballots, the pace indicated that the count could last into Thursday.Other major counties, like Chester, Montgomery and Delaware, suburban counties outside of Philadelphia and a growing source of strength for Democrats, also had not reported the majority of their mail-in ballots. Allegheny County, home to Pittsburgh and another Democratic base of support, still had a large share of ballots to count.Senator Bob Casey, Jr., a Democrat, said, “I’m confident Joe Biden will carry the state because of the margins we’ll get in those counties.” In Detroit, the city clerk had counted only about half of what was expected. The clerk’s office reported having 125,000 votes tallied just after 2 a.m.For comparison purposes, Detroiters cast 248,000 ballots in 2016, when turnout was low. This year, election officials have said they expect turnout to easily surpass that, potentially exceeding 2008 and 2012 when President Barack Obama was on the ballot.Mr. Biden is expected to easily get 90 percent of the vote in Detroit.In Michigan’s bellwether Macomb County, which voted twice for Mr. Obama and then for Mr. Trump in 2016, the president was ahead because of a large advantage with voters who went to the polls on Tuesday. But only around half of the precincts had fully counted their early and Election Day ballots, leaving Mr. Biden considerable opportunity to close that gap.And in Oakland County, the state’s second-largest, what began as a significant lead for Mr. Trump Tuesday evening vanished into an advantage for Mr. Biden by Wednesday as more and more precincts reported their early votes.Democrats have won Oakland County in every recent presidential election. Hillary Clinton carried it by eight points in 2016, and Mr. Biden appeared on track to surpass that margin of victory. Updated Nov. 4, 2020, 6:08 a.m. ET WisconsinEarly returns were inconclusive Tuesday evening, with the key population center of Milwaukee yet to report vote tallies. But early Wednesday, a large vote count from that city was announced, and Mr. Biden edged ahead of Mr. Trump based on roughly 90 percent of estimated votes statewide.Democrats in the state are looking to replicate the political coalition of Senator Tammy Baldwin, the Democrat who won in 2018 by energizing her party’s constituencies while limiting losses in the suburbs and rural regions. The state legislature refused to allow election officials to begin processing absentee ballots until 7 a.m. on Election Day, and officials across the state were laboring through the tedious process of counting ballots.- Advertisement – In an interview on Election Day, Ms. Baldwin said she believed Mr. Biden would be successful.“They figured out a way to be here virtually, even if they weren’t here in person,” she said. “We’ve learned a lot of lessons about how we conducted 2016, from the party all the way on down.” There are several reasons Democrats remain confident in Wisconsin. The state saw increased turnout in Madison, reaching more than 80 percent, according to election officials. In Milwaukee, another of the state’s liberal strongholds, turnout seemed better than four years ago but below the expectations of the state’s left wing.Mr. Biden built a political campaign focused on Midwestern voters, aimed at clawing back many of the ideological moderates who voted for Mr. Trump in 2016. For all the talk about winning states like Florida, Iowa or Texas, Democrats in Wisconsin say the campaign will be decided as it began — with Mr. Biden betting his political future on the region of the country that he is most associated with. Here is a look at where things stand as the counting continues and each state remains too close to call. Though President Trump had a roughly 670,000-vote advantage in Pennsylvania, Democrats in the state were confident that they could make up the margins with turnout from Philadelphia and the collar counties still outstanding.They also were buoyed by winning back Erie county in the northwest corner of the state. Democrats had requested more than 1.1 million more absentee ballots than Republicans in the state, according to data from the secretary of state’s office.The delays in results in Pennsylvania, however, might extend beyond the simple challenge of counting the outstanding ballots. Republicans filed multiple lawsuits in the state on Tuesday, including one regarding provisional ballots for voters who had their absentee ballots rejected.Early on Wednesday morning, national Democrats filed a motion intervening in Montgomery County. Hearings were scheduled in both state and federal court on Republican lawsuits, and lawyers on both sides were anticipating further litigation in Pennsylvania. – Advertisement – – Advertisement –

Tourism secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat says travel restrictions will definitely have an impact on the Philippine tourism industry, but the safety of the workers in the sector and the public is more important than other considerations. JUN AGUIRRE/PN “Malakiang apekto sa transport, hotels, resorts, lahat ng activities sa Boracay dahil satemporary ban sa mga Chinesetourists. Hindi naman natin ma-compromised ang health at safety ng ating mga residente at ibang turista,” headded./PN On Tuesday, Fulgencio said theMunicipal Health Office of Malay was having a hard time monitoring PUMs becausethey were billeted in various tourism accommodation establishments. It would bebetter if these establishments have safety officers or medical teams regularlyreporting to us the health status of the PUMs, if these tourists manifestflu-like symptoms, she said. This statement was contrary to thepicture painted by its Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officechief – a local government overwhelmed by the task of monitoring PUMs due tologistical challenges. Since most of them already left thecountry, the municipality is left with 429 persons to be monitored, itstressed. “No virus in paradise: Boracay Islandis safe and free from 2019-nCoV”, blared its statement issued yesterday. It also listed the followinginterventions undertaken: On Tuesday, Malay’s Municipal DisasterRisk Reduction and Management Office chief Catherine Fulgencio said her localgovernment unit (LGU) was having a hard time monitoring 2,000 mostly Chinesetourists in Boracay and thus appealed for help from the Regional Disaster RiskReduction and Management Council. Fulgencio could not be reached forcomment anymore yesterday. “Probably indi pa gid clear sa ila konano ang role nila when it comesto nCoV monitoring,” she said. ILOILO City – The local government ofMalay, Aklan went on damage control mode a day after its Municipal DisasterRisk Reduction and Management Office chief claimed the municipality wasstruggling to monitor some 2,000 mostly Chinese tourists in Boracay Islandfor possible novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) infection. Addressing this concern, DOH Region 6director Marlyn Convocar said the local government of Malay could tap the 168“human resources for health” personnel that the regional health office assignedto Aklan; 78 of them were nurses. In a separate bulletin, the Malaylocal government also clarified it has 429 – not 2,000 – “persons undermonitoring” (PUMs) in Boracay. “We would like to reiterate that thereis no confirmed case of 2019-nCoV as well as persons under investigation (PUI)both in mainland Malay and Boracay Island,” the Malay LGU further stressed. Fulgencio lamented, too, that some ofthe tourism accommodation establishments were reluctant to cooperate with Malayhealth authorities. Boracay – which saw 434,175 Chinesetourists or 50 percent of the 865,419 foreigners last year – is usually packedwith inbound travelers during the peak months of January to May. * formulation of Standard OperatingProcedures for PUMs in the barangays On Feb.2 President Rodrigo Duterterestricted the inbound travel of foreigners from China and its administrativeregions to the country due to the nCoV scare. Meanwhile, Peter Tay, liaison officerto Boracay of the Chinese Embassy, expressed fear that the travel ban orderedby the national government could hurt “deeper” into the tourism businesses andtravel spending of the visitors in Boracay. * education and information campaignto all sectors (e.g., barangay, school, private sectors: hotels and resorts,associations, and cooperatives) regarding 2019-nCoV, preventive measures, andinter-government protocols PUMs are individuals with a history oftravel to China or history of contact with a known confirmed nCoV case but donot manifest signs and symptoms. * appropriation of budget for theprograms/activities of the task force The nCoV originated from Wuhan City,China. It causes severe acute respiratory infection and symptoms usually startwith a fever, followed by a dry cough. * creation of the Inter-Agency TaskForce Against the 2019 Novel Coronavirus * constant monitoring of thesocioeconomic impact of 2019-nCoV * creation and mobilization ofBarangay Health Emergency Response Teams “The municipality of Malay assures thepublic that the Malay Inter-Agency Task Force Against the 2019 NovelCoronavirus and the Municipal Health Office are on high alert since Day 1 andis closely monitoring all ‘persons under monitoring’ (PUMs) within ourmunicipality as per Department of Health (DOH) guidelines,” stressed the localgovernment. “This is worse than Boracay’s closure;we don’t know when the situation is going to end,” Tay said on Feb. 3. “The reported 2,000 Chinese…areactually the number of (tourist) arrivals reported by the Municipal TourismOffice from the period of Jan. 25 to Feb. 3, 2020,” clarified the bulletin. Boracay was closed for a massiveenvironmental rehabilitation from April to October 2018. Acting Malay mayor Frolibar Bautistasaid all sectors will likely feel the impact of the temporary travel ban. Boracay, a world-famous island resortattracting thousands of tourists each year, is Malay’s biggest generator ofrevenues.
