Many people quickly noticed the increase in prices for the upcoming year, but not the reasoning behind it. Pasquale Rotella took to Instagram to say that “Nevada lawmakers signed a bill that amended the city's Live Entertainment Tax.” The Live Entertainment Tax “has been in place since 2004 but never applied to EDC. Now it does, and it's going to affect not just us but friends like Burning Man, too.”
He continued on to say “What the change creates is basically a 9% tax on the price of admission for all tickets sold starting on October 1st, which is why we’re giving you the opportunity to buy tickets before that date. I know how much you guys sacrifice and save to make it out to EDC every year, and it’s important for me to give you as many options as possible this year. I want you all with us as we celebrate 20 Years Under the Electric Sky!”
Anyone else think Pasquale should just run for president in 2016?
