It seems like every year the festivals we know and love continue to get bigger and the lineups continue to get better. Lollapalooza is just another one of those festivals experiencing such massive growth.

Featuring acts ranging from Hip-Hop to Electronic Dance Music and everything in between, the diverse lineup is what continues to draw out such a large crowd on such a massive scale.

What makes this years festival so different from years past is the ticket sales and just how in demand tickets are for this 3 day festival. According to TiqIQ…

A three-day pass for this year’s Lollapalooza Festival is currently $395.25 on the secondary market, a 39.6% increase from last year’s average price of just $283.05. The increase in secondary price might come from the overwhelming amount of big names for this year’s lineup. The festival headliners include Eminem, Outkast, Kings of Leon and Calvin Harris.

What makes this news so shocking is the illustration this image paints and just how important it is for fans to have the full festival experience. With prices dropping for single day tickets and prices exploding for 3 day passes, the festival organizers can definitely take pride in the lineup they put out and just how prolific Lollapalooza is to the Chicago music scene.
