Kaskade live-tweets confrontation with Redux ticket scalper
So you’ve decided to make a little extra pocket cash and scalp a ticket to Kaskade’s Redux show in Boston. You post it to Craiglist for a satisfying profit, way above4 face value. Demand is high. As a ticket holder to one of the most revered names in dance music, finding a buyer should be a piece of cake. What can go wrong, right?
One of many hot button issues in today’s EDM culture is the soaring prices of various show and festival tickets. The situation becomes even stickier when factoring in scalpers who purchase tickets in bulk to sell them for massive profits. Within the last 24 hours, Kaskade tweeted the tale of how he duped and confronted one man selling his Redux ticket for the overwhelmingly unfair price of $200. The understandably awkward meeting concluded with the scalper settling to sell the ticket at face value, as it should have. As an industry role model, Kaskade genuinely cares about his fans and goes out of his way to combat the behavior. Kaskade has our backs, and we gratefully thank him for it.
