If festivals like Coachella and Hangout Fest haven't gotten you in the festival spirit yet, the month of June packs a pretty big punch for summer music fans. Due to huge popularity this spring, the majority of the major festivals scheduled to launch this month are sold out of weekend passes. Luckily for last-minute buyers, the secondary market has tickets for every event. Below is a guide to festival ticket buying this month, with ticket information provided by TiqIQ.
Governors Ball | June 3-June 5 | Manchester, Tennessee | SOLD OUT! | Weekend Resale Price (Avg): $435 | Weekend Resale (Get-in): $295
It doesn't get much bigger than the New York City-based festival Governors Ball, even with the addition of Panorama Fest later in July. This year's event will launch June 3-5, and will feature a stacked lineup with artists like Kanye West, the Strokes, the Killers, Robyn, M83, Haim, Chvrches, Father John Misty, and Death Cab For Cutie. The six-year-old festival will be held on Randall's Island and weekend passes have already sold out entirely.

Bunbury Music Festival | June 3-June 5 | Cincinnati | SOLD OUT! | Weekend Resale Price (Avg): $487 | Weekend Resale (Get-in): $187
If you haven't heard of Bunbury Music Festival yet, 2016 will likely be the year the festival hits your radar. This year's lineup will feature The Killers, Florence + The Machine, and Ice Cube at the top of the bill, and passes are some of the cheapest yet. Based out of Cincinnati, the fifth year of Bunbury will take place the same weekend as Governors Ball, launching June 3- June 5. 3-Day Passes for Bunbury Music Fest sold out back in April, and so fans looking to attend for the whole event will need to utilize the secondary market. 3-day passes are averaging $487, with the cheapest pass going for just $187.
