Last year, Lollapalooza sold out and this year ticket sales are looking promising declares Billboard Magazine. “At Lollapalooza, we’re selling more tickets than ever,” Lollapalooza’s founder Perry Farrell told Reuters. “People need an even bigger excuse to escape more than ever and there is no better escape than going to a festival and just tripping and taking in music.”
