The Roskilde Festival said Wednesday that one-day tickets for Saturday July 4th, the day McCartney will grace the Orange Stage, are already sold-out. The tickets disappeared just days after the festival confirmed the British icon’s headlining appearance.
According to festival organizers, ticket sales are brisk all around for their 2015 arrangement.
“The ticket sales for this year's Roskilde Festival is top three of best selling years in the festival's history,” the festival said in a press release.
In addition to Saturday’s tickets being gone, several of the festival’s “convenience camping” options are also sold out.
Tickets for the full festival are still on sale and regular camping spots and some pre-pitched tents are still available.
The Roskilde Festival has now announced 79 of the 169 acts that will perform at this year’s festival, which gets underway on June 27th.
The festival announced a major change to its schedule this year, opting to end on a Saturday rather than a Sunday.
“We want to end on a high note, and Saturday is definitely the peak of the week. That means that you can pack down and head back home on Sunday and be ready for whatever you’re doing the following week,” organizers said in September.
