According to reports, tickets for the star-studded OVO line-up are no longer available.
Naturally, fans flocked to Livenation and Ticketmaster’s websites to cop tickets early Thursday (June 29) the moment they went on sale. The problem — the August 7 event sold out in a matter of minutes. Many people blamed ticket bots: internet robots tasked to buy a large amount of tickets at one time so they can be resold at a higher price on sites like StubHub. (HHDX)
The quick sellout has already sparked widespread fan reactions across social media.
