When they feel like it.


But what he said. Late January = line up February = on sale

The lineup will be announced a few days before the general ticket sale (not the pre-sale, that always comes before the lineup is announced).

I love that presale, I spent as much on the presale this year for 3 days as I did on 2 days in '06.

I am buying presale this year for sure. How much was the presale last year? $199? Saving $50 is still a big deal. And who does the presale go through? Ducat King right? Dont they also charge less of a service charge? So make that $50 more like $60-70 off regular ticket price. Am I right?

I'm trying to get a new credit card so I can buy my ticket through the pre-sale this time around to save myself the drama and expense just in case there's a problem with funds. Ha, good luck with that, I know.

It's has (almost) always been the last weekend of April, first weekend of May, but the 30 of April is a Wednesday. So, is it gonna be April 25-27, or May 2-4? I want to know personally, 'cause I'm planning a trip to Barcelona the day after Coachella, and don't know when to book a flight! Any help, P.F.?

April 25-27...the desert sun said so.

And I imagine hotels would know too, because the number of rooms that would need to be reserved in advance for the performers and workers of Coachella must be obscenely high.

how do we get a password for the presale?

On the Coachella main page somewhere there is a thing to sign up for the free e-mail newsletter.If you sign up they'll e-mail you about the presale with the password.

last year, all non-usa sales were Will Call only. Will Call was a mess

It just means you pick them up at the entrance on the day. The presale tickets were posted internationally last year, which saved me a 5 hour queue experience.

Sign up for the Coachella newsletter, and you might receive an email about the presale & save the hassle of the queue (and save money).

I won't lose too much sleep over that. I'm sure i'll be able to scrape enough money together for a ticket.

Ok newsletter all signed up for (I hope, had to make up a Zip Code thingy), tell me oh knowledgable ones....roughly when would presale tickets go out, going on previous years? Also when do the other tickets go onsale?

Why are there such lucky people getting free tickets? I take it its for US citizens only?
