Concrete & Grass 2017: Tickets Now Open – Guess the Lineup!

“Names”, you’ve demanded; “Give us the names.”

“Where’s that lineup?” we’ve heard you ask. Many (many) times.

Well, we’ve got great news and good news and not-surprising news.

The great news? Our 2017 lineup is all ready to roll: a jam-hot collection of legends, party-starters and musical renegades.

The not-surprising news? It’s not *quite* ready to announce just yet: we’re waiting for the appropriate permits and go-aheads that will let us share – but rest assured it’s coming very, very soon.

Which brings us to good news.

 I – We’re playing a fun little game with you all. Hidden in this illustration below are 25 names from the 2017 Concrete & Grass lineup.  Give us your best guess for a chance to win free tickets to the ‘Grass! 

 II – We’re opening regular Advance Tickets for Concrete & Grass Right. This. Very. Instant! You can grab them from your ticket provider of choice: Damai (CN), or 24/7 (EN) or Smart Ticket (EN). Scroll down for links and QR codes.


Now, we fully understand if you’re feeling hesitant to commit without confirmed evidence of who’s coming to the ‘Grass. Full lineup announcements are coming very very soon, and here’s how we’ve planned this out:

Today, Aug 2: Tickets Open
