It’s no accident that Linkin Park have one of the biggest fan bases going, and the band is continuing to do their part to keep their followers happy by staging the 7th International Linkin Park Underground Summit in Cape Town, South Africa, on Nov. 7.
The group began holding summits for their fan base several years back and has spread out the locations to make sure that everyone who likes the band will eventually have the opportunity to attend one of the events. Past summits have taken place in London, Sydney, Chicago, Hamburg, Tokyo, and Camden, N.J., with the band offering meet and greets, backstage tours, the opportunity for fans to jam on their gear or walk across their stage, soundcheck entry, Q&A sessions and acoustic performances.
Passes for the Summit will be available strictly for the band’s LP Underground fan club beginning this Friday (Oct. 19) at 9AM Cape Town time. Summit passes are free for LPU Plus Pass members as part of their membership. In addition, the group has announced that for the first time, they will be selling exclusive LPU Summit t-shirts specific to the Cape Town event for $25. You can purchase the shirt when you reserve your pass.
Stay tuned to the band’s website for additional details, including a Music for Relief tree planting activity, in the days to come. To get a better idea on what’s involved with an LPU Summit, check out the video from their inaugural event in London below.
