Festival season is quickly approaching and it’s shaping up to be a damn good summer. Last week all rumors of Lollapalooza being relocated were squashed and we couldn’t be happier that its going to remain in here in Chicago. The festival is scheduled for August 3-5, 2012 and will take place in Grant Park. Lolla made a special announcement via Twitter yesterday stating they will be releasing their “Souvenir” tickets sometime this week but if you miss those then the general release will begin on March 27th for $200.
“The Lolla $75 Secret Sale is happening this week. But we can’t tell you exactly when, or else it wouldn’t be a secret!”
