Yeah they staggered the releases at each pop-up to help stop the scalpers buying everything at the start. And at many of the gigs they had different posters at different merch tents/sites. You had to be pretty persistent to get everything, and at the start nobody knew either the strategy or the fact there would be two to four posters.
Of course the band could have just printed 2000 of each and said whatever, let's just make the money. But no, they got them artist signed where possible, limited the numbers to make them special, and added that bit of strategy to try and let fans get at least something worth keeping. I know which method I prefer.
