Sasquatch sold out in an hour and a half this year, Coachella wasn't far behind, and ACL is likely to follow suit despite moving to two weekends. Just the way the big business festival circuit is now. I'm shocked Bonnaroo hasn't sold out yet, but you can probably chalk that up to the logistics of actually getting there being somewhat prohibitive.

ACL has been quickly selling out for at least the last four years, and C3 has never done an additional ticket drop. Don't hold your breath.

Yeah, Bonnaroo's location and setup is what holds that back from being an instant sellout. This is in the heart of Chicago though. There's no population within Bonnaroo that it sells to.

Again, this has never sold out before like this. It would be one thing if this happens every year. It doesn't.

Well... single days didn't sell out like this.

But I'm sure last year was a scare enough for everyone. For the entire summer it was impossible to find tickets.

I'm just grateful I have tickets to the only day worth spending full price on. I'd pay $95 to see The Cure by themselves; throw in Grizzly Bear and Beach House and baby, you've got a stew going.

It will be interesting to see what happens with Outside Lands. Presale tomorrow, which usually sells out in a day or so. I am predicting it will sell out within an hour this year.

I expect the lineup to be out next week with Paul McCartney as one of the headliners. It will be interesting to see how fast it sells out this year. Last year was the first sellout and it took a while.

Three days didn't sell out in a day either, it took a bit.

Ah, I'm not bugged by anyone in here, I was just stressing that I'm surprised based on what has happened before. Had I the experience you have with ACL, I wouldn't be shocked at all. After this year, I won't be shocked at anything, but it's taking a second to adjust to the idea that Lolla is turning into an absolute wasteland, but I'll survive this

Well I'm just imagining all the people like my two friends and I. We all ended up paying 300-350 for all 3 days. So naturally this time round, we joined the hoard of people buying. Domino effect perhaps? We all learned out lesson.

What's shocking is that Lolla lagged behind ACL in terms of selling out for this long while ACL continues to lag behind Lolla in lineup quality forever and ever, especially considering we've got like eighteen weekend long music festivals a year.

Just found this comment on Huffington Post, which I found interesting:

"Funny, at current, StubHub has 1346 3-day passes, 476 Friday passes, 556 Saturday passes, and 1107 Sunday passes. No shenanigans here. Move along."

So expected though. And people will pay for those, if last year was any indication. Most 3-days did indeed sell for ~$330. I monitored eBay constantly.

I'll only be going to Saturday this year.

I have to see the Nash there again. And I'll probably hit up Ellie Goulding and the Postal Service as well. Some of those big songs off of Give Up could be pretty fucking awesome at night in Grant Park. Might check out Kendrick Lamar, too.

What are y'all looking forward to from Saturday's lineup?

Not much, you basically hit most of my want-to-sees.

Saturday:
The Postal Service
The National*
The Lumineers
Ellie Goulding
Foals

HAIM

God, I can't wait for HAIM's album.
