I still already booked my flight and hostel awhile ago, so lets hope for some awesome middle band lineup.

The Golden tickets are the ones to get.  60 bucks for all three days.

Something about Jane's playing makes me think this will be the last Lolla...

lolla has a contract/MOU/permissions slip/etc from chicago, keeping them in grant park through 2011.  they make money every year.  personally, i doubt they are planning this one as the last.

Fuck the Beastie Boys, except for the fact they were secret characters in NBA JAM.

Weak headlining lineup, hope they make up for it with a solid indie lineup.

They're typically thrown up without notice.

in case you've never tried getting golden tickets before, be aware that it is very very very hard to score them.  you need to be refreshing the site constantly, and they sell out in minutes.  the ticketing website also tends to crash.  i've lucked out and managed to get them twice now... but i'm obsessive that way.  YMMV.

oh stop, its not THAT hard. I have never known anyone who didnt log in within the first 20 minutes or so, get shut out of them.

really?  then you and i hang out in different circles, then, 'cause i know/have heard from lots of people who got shut out or lost their orders due to server crashes - check out the lolla msg board for the usual moaning and bitching.  and i'm fairly confident that last year's presale didn't last 20 minutes, but maybe my memory is failing me.

  well, i know that in 2006 i logged on almost a full hour after the email and got them. I didnt even know about them either.    in 2007 i certainly dont remember refreshing and panicking.  I didnt go last year, but i can imagine that Radiohead playing made the tickets go that much faster. (as it did when they played Coachella)

  none of this really matters anyway, but i am certainly FAR from lucky when it goes to getting hard to score tickets.
