HI my freindly fellow craftsters!!!!!  I have been crafting for a loooong time, but only have evr made stuff for myself or for friends.  this october, my husband and are going to a 2 day music festival in new orleans (beastie boys!!!!  yay!!!!), and in order to help pay for the trip i was thinkin gof trying to sell something small and cool like wristbands, hemp necklaces, or whatever.  my question is, does anyone have any tips or experience with selling homemade goodies at a music concert?  is it illegal?  if so, is it easy to get around the rules?  what's a good craft, easy to make in quantity, that people like to buy?  any advice is very welcome....my husband and i really cannot afford this trip at all, but we arew so desperate to see the b boys!!!  Smiley  thanks in advance.

I've never done sales at a concert, but I'm pretty sure you have to get some sort of permission to be a vendor at the event. I think even those people who sell glow sticks have to have permission.

I would think that not only would you need permission, but you would also have to *pay* to be able to sell stuff there. Depending on what type of venue it is, they may also require that you have a license to sell in that borough. Especially with big bands, most tours don't like to allow other people to sell things at their shows. Money being spent elsewhere can't be spent on merch, and merch is a bit profit maker.
