I tend to wade through the more general interweb boards on the occasions when I need to know stuff like this.

It’s public information, and as people are going they should know these things :)

Some one from MCD was on the radio saying they have sold all the tickets they are going to sell, and they have filled practically all of whatever number of people that can be there under the event’s licence. But you never know….
