September still feels like a long way away, but you’ll save big if you plan ahead and buy your Globalquerque tickets in advance of the show.

Discounted advance tickets are already on sale for ¡Globalquerque! – Albuquerque’s annual celebration of world music and culture. The Globalquerque 2014 event  takes place on September 19-20 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, with performers including the fantastic Guatemala’s Gaby Moreno. Other acts in the line-up include Cuba’s Afro-Cuban All Stars, Calypso Rose with Kobo Town from Trinidad & Tobago, China’s Liu Fang, and America’s own Los Texmaniacs.

You’ll save yourself money if you plan ahead and buy advance Globalquerque tickets rather than waiting to buy on the door. For example, an advance adult 2-day pass costs $59 — a savings of $10 off the day of show price! An adult one day tickets saves $5  in advance, and advance children’s tickets save $2 for one day and $5 for the 2-day pass.

You can buy the advance Globalquerque tickets online, but expect to pay a service charge of $3.50 per ticket. The much cheaper option is to buy tickets at the National Hispanic Cultural Center box office (1701 4th Street SW) with no service charge. Or call the NHCC Box Office on (505) 724-4771 and you’ll also avoid paying ticketing fees.

If you can’t afford to buy Globalquerque tickets at all, or just plain don’t want to pay up for the festival, there will be a free Global Fiesta day on September 20 with family-friendly entertainment and activities.  It’s not really the same as seeing all those fabulous concerts, but it’s still a great day of music and dance.

I’ll keep you posted on the free Global Fiesta day nearer the time, so if you’re not a subscriber remember to Subscribe FREE to Albuquerque on the Cheap by RSS or email. You’ll receive updates in a handy email digest, listing all the new deal posts from the past 24 hours. No new deals that day… no email.
