The LINKIN PARK Underground (LPU) was founded in 2001 as a way for LINKIN PARK to connect directly with the people who support the band, and cultivate a central meeting-place for the LINKIN PARK community. LPU members are given access to members only exclusives including Meet & Greet opportunities with the band, access to pre-sale tickets, a brand new merchandise package, exclusive Linkin Park music, and much more.
WHAT DOES AN LPU MEMBERSHIP PROVIDE ACCESS TO?*
LPU is the best way to get one-on-one access to the band. Members have access to rare Linkin Park demos, Meet & Greets, online chats with band members, and the coveted LPU International Summits. LPU is the band's way of connecting directly with the people who support them.
MEET & GREETS
When the band is on tour, members can sign up for the chance to meet members of LINKIN PARK via the LPU Meet & Greet. LPU members who are selected for the Meet & Greets receive a commemorative laminate and take a group photo with the band and other LPU members. Sign ups are available through the LPU Contest page (https://linkinpark.com/lpu/contests).
INTERNATIONAL LPU SUMMITS
An LPU Summit is a multi-activity event that joins LPU members from all over the world for an exclusive, intimate experience. Although each Summit's activities vary, LPU members have historically gotten to meet the band, watch sound checks and intimate acoustic performances, take pictures on the band's stage with their instruments, work on Music For Relief charity events, tour the crew bus and backstage, and more.
LPU Summit Passes are sold separately. More information will be posted as an LPU Summit is announced.
VIDEO CHATS WITH LINKIN PARK AND CREW
Throughout the year LPU HQ will schedule video chats with LINKIN PARK band members and members of the LP staff & crew. Stay tuned for complete details on the new LPU CHATS via the LINKIN PARK APP** (coming soon to iOS and Android).
OTHER SPECIAL EVENT OPPORTUNITIES
As a member, you have the chance for admission to events that are not accessible to the public. When special event access is available, LPU members have been included in experiences such as: The Transformers movie premiere performance, The Hunting Party Album listening sessions around the world, the 'Faint' video shoot, an exclusive private preview of Joe Hahn's Beast Astray art show, and more.
