    $55 in fees should not be a thing!

    I’ve never bought a ticket faster in my life then when I saw that Sunday lineup lmao. I’ve been dying to see Big Theif, Phoebe, and Dogleg. The National is the sweetest cherry you could top that with.

    Fees are going to be bad for almost every festival in Chicago. The entertainment tax is super high.

    I'm happy to have gotten in at early bird pricing.

    So with Summerfest and the Olympics postponing, are we thinking this gets postponed? If other events in June/July are getting postponed...

    I suspect it will be. Summerfest is the biggest tell when it comes to July festivals. I also think Lolla will have to be pushed back, too. Can't have people traveling if there are still local outbreaks.

    Weird look to still be promoting the fest without any word on the potential for it to be cancelled. I mean I know they may just be waiting to be forced to cancel but at least Lolla has given a few updates and alluded to the fact that it (Lolla) may not happen this year.

    I agree but yeah, they're waiting for the city or state to make their call so they can claim insurance.

    Bummer. They had a good lineup this year. Do you all think they will try and retain as much of the lineup as possible for next year or will it be completely different?

    They may actually benefit from this and be able to get a lot of the same acts. Seems most artists are pushing out touring plans for a year.

    This has been evident since the start of the pandemic, but the sting will never cease. That Sunday lineup was so good and the first time in years I was going to experience a fest with my high school friends. I am sad but there’s bigger problems in the world.
