Just hours after single-day tickets went on sale this morning, the Outside Lands Festival has completely sold out of the regular price, general admission tickets. If you snoozed on passes or tickets, you're now stuck with premium VIP passes or scalping tickets on the secondary markets.
ranger dave has 0 general admission tickets left for the festival. he does have vip available right now, but those are almost sold out too.— ranger dave (@sfoutsidelands) April 17, 2014
On StubHub, three-day general admission passes (originally $275) are already priced anywhere from an eyerolling $440 to a nausea-inducing $3,957 — and that doesn't even include access to the VIP bathrooms. For that much, you could rent an AirBnb near the park and listen to Kanye West from the comfort of your (illegally) rented living room.
Meanwhile, at Bottlerock, the Bay Area's other summer festival of note is already offering discounts and listing tickets on group buying sites. This is even with Outkast coming off a hot first-weekend performance at Coachella, so maybe 90s music and hip-hop has less appeal in Napa County than organizers anticipated.
