LiveNation has partnered with a IdentoGO, the company that runs TSA Pre-Check at airports, to offer an express entry service that will be available at select concert and music festivals across the country. Similar to its implementation at US airports, pre-registered festival attendees with the Fast Pass TSA Pre-Check will be able to bypass long lines at festivals for quicker entry.

Fast Pass is a fast-track security line that lets attendees skip long lines, but they will still be checked by security. The festival access was added so customers who already had pre-check for air travel could use the service more frequently and at different places, including music events.

Attendees also have the opportunity to sign up for the service on-site at festivals. Pre-Check enrollment was previously only able at airports or official enrollment centers. In order to sign up, customers will need to bring a government-issued photo ID with proof of US citizenship like a passport or birth certificate. TSA Pre-Check is $85 and is valid for five years.

Fast Pass by IdentoGO will be available at the upcoming Meadows Festival in Queens, New York. Scheduled performers at The Meadows includes Kanye West, Kygo, Grimes, Zhu, and Thomas Jack. We've reached out to IdentoGO for further comment and will update this post.
