As of 11:06 pm CT, Lollapalooza has sold its full allotment of one-day, three-day, and VIP passes. In other words, the festival is completely sold out.
Three-day passes sold out in just under three hours after going on sale March 26th (and days before the festival formally announced this year’s lineup). One-day passes and the remaining VIP tickets went on sale at 10:00 am morning and were gone within the hour. Interestingly enough, the festival’s third and final day — which features its big coup The Cure — was the final day to sell out.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the festival’s daily capacity is capped at 100,000 per an agreement with the Chicago Park District. 80,000 three-day passes and 20,000 single-day passes were made available for this year.
In addition to The Cure, this year’s lineup feature Nine Inch Nails, Mumford and Sons, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, The Killers, The National, The Postal Service, Queens of the Stone Age, and many more. Click here to read our analysis of the lineup.
Also, a little birdie tells me that we have a pair of three-day passes to give away sometime soon, so be on the look out for that.
