Lollapalooza Tue Mar 20 2012
According to the official Lollapalooza Twitter account, "The Lolla $75 Secret Sale is happening this week." The exact time and date are of course a secret -- hence the name -- but if you're desperate to get into Lollapalooza for the lowest price possible, now's your cue to go create an account on Frontgate Tickets and put @Lollapalooza up in a separate tab in your browser. The quantity will be small, and they'll sell out almost instantaneously.
UPDATE: And once again the secret sale came and went in a flash. The announcement went out via the Lollapalooza e-list and in what seemed like moments later they were sold out -- which was bound to happen, since only 750 souvenir tickets were released. The festival turn to Twitter and Facebook followers only to announce that passes were sold out.
Disappointment turned to anger for many music fans when more than 70 of the three-day passes quickly appeared on ticket broker website StubHub, for prices ranging from $375 to $999.
For the multitudes who missed out, the next chance at tickets will be Tuesday, March 27, when "early bird" three-day passes go on sale for $200 apiece.
