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.
