The tabloid also reports that the venue authorities were expecting around 30,000 crowd till last weekend, but after seeing into the drop in the demands of the tickets, their expectation has come down to 20,000. The Managing Director of the venue Amanora, Anirudha Deshpande said to the tabloid that they have sold around 13,000 tickets and given away 2,000 passes till now.
Instead of the shoot up in the demands of the tickets, it has gone down drastically. The reason being that the tickets have become unaffordable for the students and working professionals settled in Bangalore.
