Those $999 Silk Pajama Tickets Look Better Now

BY // 03.24.16

ColleGrove, the current collaboration between Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, is the biggest name among the new  headliners for this year’s edition of Free Press Summer Fest. Fresh off a fun, light debut record, the two southern hip-hop stars are joined by indie songwriter Father John Misty, the eccentric Zola Jesus, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and Lewis Del Mar, all of whom are now a part of the eighth iteration of the venerable festival (which kicked off in 2009), which also includes previously announced headliners Modest Mouse, Leon Bridges, Jamie xx, Big Grams (Big Boi and Phantogram), and The National.

The festival takes place June 4-5 at Eleanor Tinsley Park. General admission to Free Press Summer Fest is currently at $157.50, with Fancy Pants tix at $193.50, and Regular Silk Pajama Tickets at an eye-popping $999. Children 8 and under enter free with a ticketed adult.
