Cruel World festival sells out in less than an hour – Orange County Register

Loading ....

It took less than an hour for tickets to Cruel World, a new festival with a lineup equivalent of taking a time machine back to 1982, to sell out, and fans of ’80s new wave music were either celebrating that they got tickets or feeling bad they missed their shot.

The festival, which will come to Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson on Saturday, May 2, will feature some very popular ’80s new wave artists, including Bahaus, Blondie, Morrissey, Devo, Echo and the Bunnymen, Violent Femmes and more.

Shortly after tickets went on sale Feb. 14, people took to Twitter with excited messages about getting tickets.

And then there was the crowd that wasn’t so lucky (one Twitter user was very not pleased with her dad).

One person  suggested that since tickets sold out so quickly, festival promoter Goldenvoice might want to make Cruel into more of a three-day event a la the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Though tickets are sold out, there may still be hope yet. Cruel World lists a waitlist option that people can sign up for in case some tickets become available again. They can sign up for the waitlist by visiting
