Dammit, that is cheap but I am broke. Why would they sell passes before announcing ANY bands?

After they announce the bands the price jumps way up. I think $150 after they announce the lineup. It's kind of the risk you take. But it's always good so it's not much of a risk. I'm trying to figure out why I never got that email.

It's $125 including all fees for two days at Bamboozle when you buy them individually.

$60+fees for three days of this is a steal.

Then again, I really don't complain about prices of concerts/shows. $30 (which is the usually price these days for a major label 'scene' band) with fees isn't much, considering most of the crowd probably downloaded nearly every performers' discography...

If I can catch this, I plan on buying as many as i can and re-selling them a reasonable profit to off-set my tax debt. I missed out last year when they did this, so who knows.

Yeah last year they didn't announce it till the tickets actually went on sale, there was no warning at all. I got these the second year Lolla was in Chicago, and I'm pretty sure they were $45 plus fees for a three-day pass...what a steal.

Actually the prices will probably be over $200 once they announce the bands. Last year's special mailling list pre-order was for $55 tickets, $170-ish once tickets officially went on sale and $190 after they announced the lineup.

For the special $60 tickets, they only release 3,000 at that price and they sell out within a half hour. Tickets are limited to 2 per order. I was able to get them for $45 each for Lolla 2006.

Nearly every festival does it. Cornerstone tickets go on sale in August for the next year, months before the bands are announced. By the time the bands are announced, prices have already increased like 2-3 times.

It'll probably happen during the week. That's how it was the last 2 years. Thursday/Friday is my best guess.

Because everyone knows there's gonna be a great great line-up anyway.

This is also a great opportunity for scalpers.
