Flume (Harley Edward Streten) is a young producer who released his first self-titled album in 2012. Since then he’s been climbing the charts and into the hearts of his adoring fans. His signature sound is recognized not just by his fans but his peers in the industry. I knew about his music but had yet to see him until Coachella this year. His music evokes an emotional journey that is hard to describe and experiencing it live is an absolute must.
It was a casual Tuesday night when Flume posted part of an image with big letters and the caption “Tomorrow” on Instagram. At first you couldn’t tell what it was but within a couple of hours the second image was posted and the words “Dublin, Phoenix, Barcelona, Atlanta” were clearly visible. I hadn’t read anything online about what it could be and it was just the first two images but with words like that I immediately knew what he was going to announce. Over the course of the next 12 hours he continued posting pictures revealing more cities and festivals. By Wednesday morning as the last two images were posted it was official Flume was announcing a world tour for 2016. The full graphic was only up for a few hours before it was taken down and Facebook events started getting created all over the world. Massive ticket sites like AXS and Ticketmaster were displaying Pre-Sale dates and General Sale dates but Flume’s Facebook page told us to join his mailing list/fan club to get more information – we all immediately signed up.

The first pre-sale happened on May 9th at 10am. I watched as the first show (Skywalk Theatre in Minnesota sold out), next was Los Angeles, followed by San Diego, and then shortly after the rest of the locations listed on his site. It had only been a few minutes before I received the message that tickets were no longer available. I wasn’t too worried, this was just the first pre-sale, there would be another according to the most ticket outlets. The next pre-sale was sponsored by Pandora Music and happened May 10th at 10am. Again, minutes went by as I waited in the digital line just to receive the “tickets are no longer available” message. I thought I had possibly missed my chance at this point, but I was wrong, there was yet again one more pre-sale available and it was May 11th at 10am. Browsers were open on every screen, I would not miss my chance this time. I waited close to 30 minutes in the digital line before it was my turn and the first time I clicked the “Find Available Tickets” button it said none were available. I kept clicking with desperate hope I might get tickets and finally it happened!
