The processes involved with making a t-shirt have long been held as a prime example of manufacturing in a global economy, but what really goes into it?

Riot Fest, a punk, rock, and alternative music festival in Chicago runs a neat little racket: Before all of the bands are announced, you can buy discounted two- and three-day passes.

Then they announce all the bands, but not which day they’re playing, and about a month before the show, they release the schedule and single-day tickets go on sale. Unless you are a festival-lover, into pop-punk, or perhaps both, you probably want a single-day ticket.
