Well, the excitement has passed. The rabid race for Lollapalooza Festival tickets has ended. For some, it ended in triumph. For others, disdain and misfortune. Unsurprisingly, the three-day Early Bird and Regular Passes sold out within minutes of going on sale on Tuesday.
Not all is lost however. Single-day passes will go on sale April 9 of $95, the same day the official lineup will be announced. If you're one of those unlucky fans who missed their opportunity earlier this week to snag a ticket, you should know to be on top of your game this time around. There's little margin for error here at Lollapalooza 2013.
If you have a little extra spending cash lying around, Platinum three-day passes are also still available, but you're looking at dropping at least $1,000. However, Lollapalooza does make it extra sweet for those willing to spend the extra dime. The tickets include exclusive air-conditioned Platinum Hospitality Areas, access to the Lolla Artists Lounge, dedicated viewing areas, golf carts for easy travel and for those too lazy to walk, catered food and complimentary bars. It may be pricey, but you're getting the whole shebang.
The 2013 Lollapalooza Festival will take place August 2-4 in Chicago's Grant Park. Rumors of performing artists continue to pour in, and although some have confirmed, the full official lineup won't be announced until April 9. Despite the lack of a confirmed bill, fans still didn't hesitate to snatch up their tickets as soon as possible.
Either previously confirmed acts drew them in, or avid festival goers are confident they'll have a good time regardless of the lineup. It makes sense; Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend and The Killers have been confirmed to headline this year's festival. Between the list of headliners and absurd ticket demand, Lollapalooza 2013 is off on the right foot.
