Live Nation Joins The TSA In Allowing Security Pre-Screening

WASHINGTON (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation has signed up with the security pre-screening company used by the Transportation Security Administration to provide easier passage through airport checkpoints to provide similar services for their music festivals.

According to The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, attendees can sign up ahead of time at pre-approved location, with a valid ID, proof of US citizenship and a fee of $85 dollars. The enrollment process is typically completed in about ten minutes and is good for five years, the Post-Intelligencer said.

At the festival, pre-screened festival-goers will be able to present their PreCheck Known Traveler Number along with a government issued ID, to receive a Fast Pass wristband good for the entire weekend.

“They’ve had a presence at two smaller, local festivals in the South to see if the concert concept is viable but the launch with Live Nation marks a much bigger program and initiative for IdentoGO and their first foray to the West Coast,” Live Nation rep Dana Meeks told the Post-Intelligencer.

The first major Live Nation festival to use the system was the Watershed Country Music Festival at The Gorge. – Staff Writers
