Lollapalooza 2010 $60 tickets come and go

Lollapalooza 2009 hasn't even been over for a week, but that didn't prevent the fest's early bird promotional $60 tickets for its 2010 installment from selling out within minutes.

Although no lineup announcements will be made for next year's fest - scheduled for August 6 to 8 in Grant Park - for many months, deal-hungry Lolla lovers didn't seem to care. The $60 3-day passes went on sale shortly after 1 p.m. today and sold out in under 10 minutes.

This is the first year Lollapalooza promoters put the $60 tickets on sale so soon. In previous years they've gone up for grabs around five months before the festival. For those who missed out, Lollapalooza is putting discounted three-day passes on sale next Monday, August 17. With nearly a year until the festival and no lineup announcements imminent, they'll still run you $175 each, suggesting that a price hike is coming and in 2010 Lollapalooza will be more expensive to attend than ever before.

  1. How did I miss this? ARRRRGGH

  2. there is some direct link they seem to use every year for the tickets. The website doesn't update right away, so people were checking the link. United Center tickets

    Of course, only a few people had the link and wouldn't share last year...except to post on the thread to say it for sale
