Lollapalooza Tickets On Sale Tuesday

By Selena Fragassi in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 22, 2015 4:00PM

Get ready—Lollapalooza tickets go on sale Tuesday morning, March 24, at 10 a.m. and much like years past, it should sell out in record time.

Three-day passes for the annual music festival in Grant Park (this year July 31 to August 2) start at the early bird rate of $250. They will increase to the regular price of $275 once the first batch is claimed. VIP, Platinum and Travel Packages will also be available at this time. In the weeks to come, single day passes will be for sale for $110.

Before you buy, though, trying getting your pass for free. Going on now through Monday March 23 is the Lucky Lolla contest that awards a number of comped three-day passes. Head to and register an account upon which you’ll receive five playing numbers. Then log back on Monday at 8 p.m. to see if you have a winning combination.

Lolla’s lineup has not been announced yet—normally it’s released in April—but that has not stopped many from speculating. Chicago Magazine put together their predictions, including Sam Smith, Drake and A$AP Rocky, Modest Mouse, St. Vincent, Kanye, Rihanna and Metallica.

Some of the artists have been recently profiled on and are part of the festival’s first-ever Berlin outing so that could be probable, but if the Euro lineup is any indication, we could also get Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Tame Impala and My Morning Jacket. No one will know for sure for a couple of weeks, but snagging tickets early is always a good bet.
