Pro-Tips to Reach VIP Status for Meadows 2017!

Ready to get backstage access at Meadows 2017? Here are a few pro-tips to help you get hooked up with VIP status!

    • Go to the “Sell Meadows Tickets” challenge in the Challenges screen.
    • Scroll down to the text that reads “Here is your personal invite link:”


  • Copy the Google-shortened link. This link works great in places that people you know will see often – like your Instagram bio! Make sure to add it in the “website” field so that it appears as a link!




    1.  Share to your social followings often to let them know to hit you up for tickets!

REMEMBER: Never post your links to any official Meadows social media sites, message boards, Craigslist, coupon pages, etc. This is a violation of the SocialLadder rules.
