TicketNetwork Advisory -- Demand for Lollapalooza Tickets Rises More Than 230%

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - Jul 29, 2011) - The number of Lollapalooza tickets sold on the TicketNetwork Exchange rose more than 230% compared to the 2010 event, according to the latest data*. The festival's second day, on August 6, saw the greatest increase in tickets bought, with over 460% more sold than last year. Sales of three-day passes rose by 179%.

The increased demand for tickets may be related to the lineup of performers, as the second day of Lollapalooza will feature rapper Eminem as a headliner. The superstar most recently dominated ticket sales on the exchange last September, when he co-headlined four shows in The Bronx and Detroit with fellow hip-hop performer Jay-Z.

The Chicago-based festival remains as eclectic as ever, covering numerous genres, from hip-hop to electronic music. Other headliners at this year's festival include Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Muse, deadmau5, My Morning Jacket, and A Perfect Circle. Lollapalooza runs from August 5 - 7 at Grant Park.
