In the Mix 2017 revealed their final line up earlier this morning (4/21), as well as the ticket prices for the indoor mini music festival.
While the line-up additions (American dance rock act DNCE and English singer-songwriter Dua Lipa) were met with enthusiasm, many fans felt differently about the ticket pricing.
This year, ticket prices range from 2,120 PHP to 15,900 PHP, slightly higher than last year's festival, which featured the likes of The 1975 and James Bay.
Fans took to twitter to express their excitement (and some, dismay) about the final line-up and ticket prices.

Woah the line up for #InTheMix2017 zara, dua lipa, daya ad dnce 👏🔥🔥🔥— BIG THINGS COMING (@ChickenLoloPop) April 21, 2017
While some fans were extremely happy about the line-up, they just couldn't feel the same way about the ticket prices (discussions involved RiteMed versions of the tickets and selling kidneys for passes - which we strongly advise against, as your kidney is worth at least US$ 1,000, so maybe sell something else).

Fans of Two Door Cinema Club who have been waiting for the indie rock trio to come to Manila since they had to cancel their 2013 concert were also visibly upset. Some fans felt that the band deserve their own headlining show, instead of performing with pop acts at In the Mix.
