The day-long event will feature New Yorker editor David Remnick and other New Yorker staffers in conversation with important techies like Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Tinder CEO Sean Rad and more.

A day pass for TechFest—October 7 at Cedar Lake—includes meals, snacks, cocktails and access to all the main stage programming. The ticket also comes with a one-year subscription to the New Yorker. Current subscribers will have their subscriptions extended a year.

Sounds like a lot, right? Well, a ticket to TechFest is $1,500. Yes, we’re serious.

If you have that kind of cash, tickets are available here.
