Single-day tickets for Lollapalooza go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m., when the daily lineups are also expected to be announced.

Since four-day weekend passes ($340) for the music festival went on sale in March, ticket sales have been sluggish. All levels of access except for GA+ remain available as of Tuesday morning.

As noted by the Tribune's Greg Kot in a deeper look at Lolla's second consecutive year of slow sales, "Once a Lollapalooza sell-out could be measured in minutes. But that era appears to have passed."

It took eight days for the fest to sell out its 80,000 four-day passes (daily capacity is 100,000) in 2018. Weekend passes sold out in less than 2 1/2 hours in 2017, within one hour in 2016 and sold out completely in 2014 and 2015 before the lineups were announced. For this year's return, which hits Grant Park Aug. 1-4, only the $650 four-day GA+ tickets featuring food and bathroom perks have sold out.

Its been noted on social media that many fans and prospective attendees don't seem excited by its scheduled headliners, which include Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Twenty-One Pilots and more. Others remain dissatisfied with regularly increasing prices in comparison to other major festivals like Coachella.

Tickets for GA, GA+ and VIP packages go on sale at 10 a.m. Visit lollapalooza.com for complete details.
