I've never been able to successfully purchase tickets to OVO Fest, because bots eat them up. Each year, tickets are sold out within a matter of seconds, which leaves little hope that we'll be paying less than double to buy tickets to our favourite shows from resellers.

But Ticketmaster are looking to put an end to that with their new Verified Fan program, where they'll register fans via event pages, social media, email, or on the artist’s website. And with a verification check, you can get your hands on presale tickets before any bots can. They're starting to roll this out with bigger tours now, like this week's Ed Sheeran presale tickets.

Register by checking to see if each event has a Verified Fan presale available and if so, sign up on the Ticketmaster event page, social media, or the artist's website.
