Explantion of Tickets and Hotel Notice

It has come to our attention that some people are a bit confused on the tickets for NerdPow! 2011, so I am here to fill you in a little better.
All pre-sale tickets for NerdPow are WEEKEND PASSES.
All Passes get you into the event, free play arcade play, console play, prize tournament entry, and more.

There will be door sales!
$30 Weekend
$20 Day
$10 Sunday

“So why do I have choose a band/music act?”
In order to make things simple and easy for the acts to track their individual ticket sales, we made a separate tickets in which the act that sells the ticket gets credit for the sale. Which gets expenses paid for and eventually money in their pockets! (revenue share)\

“Do any of the tickets do anything different? Or give me access to anything special?”
There has been some talks of special deals from individual artists.
My Parents Favorite Music is giving out an exclusive E-Track.
Others are planning special meet and greets, parties, etc.
Once the information is relayed to us, we will let you know.
