So they came to what, a couple dollars more than the Glasshouse price? Basically about the same. I'm glad to have my trio of tickets finally.

And so it begins. Now I lose the next three months of my life and the next thing I know, I'm in the campground.

none of us have...I'm not camping but it looks like you'll have to purchase them through the normal release date and get raped again.

Goldenvoice and Ticketmaster are lucky I'm in a really good mood when I buy Coachella-related stuff. lol

I bought my ticket too! Woo yay!

I was initially a little disappointed by the lineup. It's hard for me to hear all the amazing rumors about My Bloody Valentine and Prince (or even lower billed acts like PJ Harvey and Okkervil River and the Magnetic Fields) and not feel a little let-down when the lineup comes out and they're not there.

And the whole lack of a pre-lineup discounted presale was also a bummer, because I guess I had grown to expect it as an option.

But the thing is, I love Coachella. I love the glorious desert setting, all the really chill people I meet, the unknown bands I inevitably discover, and just generally how attending the event makes me feel. So even if Goldenvoice wasn't able to book headliner X or Y this year, I'm still going to attend because it's worth it for me.

Now that I've made the decision and committed to attend the festival this year, I feel like I can stop feeling shafted and start thinking about all the awesomeness to come. Now I can take the time to really get to know the under-billed acts, which is the most fun of all :)

In addition to all of that, I have a feeling at least some of those bands that we expected (not anyone big, but people like Okkervil as you mentioned) stand a good chance of getting added in the future.

I have to completely agree with this. Last year was the first time that I went and I fell in love. The whole experience of Coachella is magical. I've always been the quiet type of person, until I experienced the Sahara. I finally had the courage to let loose and dance and have fun. I have to thank Coachella for that.

I discovered so many great bands there. I saw and heard Hot Chip for the first time there and I love them now. I didn't know such a great band existed.

I'm pretty sure this year will be just as great.

I did too and called Tixbastard, they emailed me the PDF and I'm set.

Totally agree Courtney, well put.

Someone PM me the sekrit shortcut for parking back lots this year, my ave 52 roundabout path was advertised by every hotel west of washington street in 07 :mad:

That would be awesome, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. I learned my lesson about expectations!

Aww yay this is what I like to hear. I'm also a pretty quiet person, so it's great to let loose sometimes.

Thanks Matt. I'm not sure if there even are any secret back roads left, but if you find them for goodness sakes don't post it here!

if you buy through ticketfast the tickets show up via an email that usually arrives within a couple hours.

I am having the same issues. Everything seems ok until I click "View and Print Tickets". Then I am told they are unable to process the order. I have tried it on every computer in the house with no luck.

It's possible that TF is having trouble generating the tickets for printing because the public sale hasn't started yet --- there may be some check in the code that validates the tickets based on a date in a table, and the date in that table could be the public sale date.

I wouldn't worry unless there are problems which persist after tomorrow.

I called TM, explained the situation. The rep said I should receive an email in twenty minutes or so. More than an hour and a half later, nada. Ticketbastard has screwed me again. You'd think spending around $300 on tix would encourage TM to improve its system, but apparently not. I'm sure after much wasted time and effort the situation will be resolved. I guess Ticketfast wasn't as fast as I anticipated.

I would just wait until tomorrow. Like a previous poster stated, there may be an issue with TicketFast in that the actual sale of tickets begins tomorrow. If the problem persists beyond Friday, I will be calling Ticketmaster.

After a second call to Ticketbastard, a more intelligent rep actually emailed the tix PDF to me. Phew, now I can relax. I am never using Ticketfast again, as this is the second time that this has happened.

I had the same "unable to process your request" message, but the 1st Ticketmeister rep I talked to just mailed the PDF to me.

Yay, all done now, except for maybe some new socks.

WTF? I got my presale email and I go to buy some tix and they are full price! $250! I thought presale was cheaper? wasn't it $150 last year and $200 this year? Anybody know why I have retail price??

I was like pacing and going through the stages of hyper craziness from 9:30 to 10:12 when the ordering was finished

Doesn't mean anything... your seat is the Empire Polo Field. It's a nice, roomy seat.



Oh, and I got my ticket. I'll be coming solo again this year- my girlfriend was planning on coming, but since she only knew 10ish bands on the entire lineup, I'm going to try and take her to All Points West instead, as I'm pretty sure that that will be a better option for her. So whoopee- I get to go to both Coachellas, at massive personal expense.

Thank you. I am very much looking forward to my seat in the Empire Polo Field. I hear it is very roomy.

Wow those tickets are expensive after all of the fees! I am buying 2 tickets and can't decide if I'm getting Friday and Saturday only, or all 3 days.

2 single day tix for Friday and Saturday = $440

2 x 3 day passes at full price = $614

$44.00 in convenience charges!?! I mean seriously WTF!?!

OUCH!
