CHICAGO — The 2013 Lollapalooza lineup wasn't out when Early Bird Passes went on sale Tuesday morning, but that didn't stop the special three-day passes — available for a discounted $200 — from selling out in less than 10 minutes.
Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. and were sold out by 10:06 a.m.
Less than three hours later, the official Lollapalooza Twitter account announced that all full-price three-day general admission passes had sold out, too:
The lineup will be released on April 9, according to festival organizers. Also that day, single-day passes will be available for $95 apiece.
Last week, 750 super-discounted "souvenir" passes were available for $75 during a flash sale that went up with little warning and sold out in "the blink of an eye," as reported on the blog Brooklyn Vegan.
The three-day summer music festival brings big names in music to Grant Park annually in early August. Last year's headliners included The Black Keys, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Black Sabbath.
