The longer you wait to sign up, the more the tickets cost so don't wait too long if you really want to go. The early tickets could get you on board for around $950, but now the lowest is around $1280.

I'd love to go to this. The lineup they had this year was incredible. Not too many bands announced so far to make me rob a bank for the money but we'll see.
