Unfortunately for avid festival-goers, to truly experience the full range of festivals globe-trotting is essential. The worst part about that is booking the flight.

With JetsuiteX, practically none of the issues of a standard airport exist. Flights are pretty inexpensive and worth the flight. Price varies.
