(CBS Seattle) – This year’s Sasquatch! Festival broke a record, and it’s not one people who haven’t bought a ticket yet will like.

The 2013 event sold every ticket available in less than 90 minutes after going on sale.

On craigslist, buyers are already offering up to $500 for a weekend pass.

This year’s headliners include Mumford & Sons, The Postal Service, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Sigur Ros, Vampire Weekend and Built to Spill.

Festival creator Adam Zacks founded Sasquatch! in 2002 with a goal of building an event that catered to the eclectic tastes of music enthusiasts. He handpicks each performer with a tradition of presenting up-and-coming indie acts as well as established headliners.

In 2012, Pollstar awarded the annual event with the “Festival of the Year” award.
