Ends up being a whopping $16 difference, after the additional camping pass charge.




presale tix total: $287
seperate camping total: $65
total presale: $352

tickets & camping (after presale): $368



point is:

they fucked up not allowing you to add camping with the presale ticket purchase. could have avoided another $15 or so in additional fees.

Why does everyone think Goldenvoice owes them something? It's a business, not a charity.

Also, $300/130 bands = $2.30 per band. Tom's probably the only one old enough to remember when concert ticket prices were $2.30. (j/k Tom).

my point is:

they should have offered camping with the presale tix,

woulda saved us another $15 or so in fees

So? You're still seeing maybe 10 bands a day. That's $10 a show, which is pretty cheap, so I think it's a deal. No one's making you spend money on Coachella either, so quit bitching if you think it's overpriced and just don't go.

captncrzy
01-25-2008, 10:37 AM
I see your point. Let's say you see 10 bands a day then...

$300/30 = $10 a band.

For some of these smaller bands, that's the cover fee you'd pay at the bar they're playing at (if they came to your area at all). You couldn't buy a dirty cup outside the arena where Roger Waters would be playing for $10.


Is that better?

faxman75
01-25-2008, 10:39 AM
Yep and I agree. $10 a band is a good deal for this music and the fest in general.

I have no complaints about the price or the lineup. I think i'm part of 1%.

Whatever, the pre sale price was a shitty discount. I hate all you people who totally defend every little move GV makes because it seems to you that they are some sort of God's. 300 dollars is A LOT of money, coachella or not! The excuse "they are a company to make money' is so stupid... so is everywhere else selling things... so I'd assume that you would never complain about the price of anything because no matter how much it is... it's from a company trying to make money so we should all pay it. People who constantly defend Golden Voice and Dani, no matter what they do or say... and then criticize other board members about everything they say... are the single most annoying, usless people on this bored... grow some balls... or a real opinion at least.

What left me doubtful was the fact I could get a TicketFast delivery for the camping ticket but not for the festival pass where I'll have to rely on the dreaded Will Call. Is there any way I can switch my ticket to TicketFast delivery, then?

Is Will Call open on the Thursday, when I'm planning to arrive?

Is this the infamous Dawn from the Sound Opinions board?

WTF are you going on about? It's fucking simple. If you don't like it. Don't fucking go. Do you really enjoy visiting a message board that has nothing but bitching and ranting completely take over for days and days?

Grow up and stop, you show your immaturity by including "dani" in your rant. Who was defending her and what does she have to do with ANYTHING regarding lineups or ticket prices or whatever the fuck you are bitching about your right to bitch for?

People who talk shit about everything GV does is also pretty god damn annoying. I'd say most people on here are not above criticizing GV, as seen by the huge disdain for this lineup and/or headliners. Some people, mostly regulars, choose to talk about the brighter side instead of bitching over every little negative aspect.

And do you ever think people defend Dani not because she is affiliated with GV, but because they genuinely like her and what she has to say on this board?

The only defending she gets is deserved because she has nothing to do with picking the linup or making up prices and those are the only things she gets defended over.

This is the definition of a troll I believe.

As far as I can tell, the "convenience" fees are charged per ticket and not per order so I don't see how you would have saved much other than possibly a little bit on the order processing fee.

The thing that I thought was odd was that three day passes are the same price as three single day passes.

MonsoonSeason
01-25-2008, 12:27 PM
god what the fuck did you guys want 50 bucks off

of course there are service charges, it's ticketmaster

the presale is an incentive for repeat buyers it's not a super-secret club GV put you in because, y'know, you're really awesome man, and I hope to see you there

maybe we can get an eight dollar heineken and catch up

Melanie, I defended Dani in some random thread where people were bitching about the lineup because you said something to the effect of "Where is perfect Dani now? Looks like she's running and hiding." This was an idiotic statement because you have no idea how fucking hard Dani has been working the past month and you wrote that on what is quite possibly the busiest day of the year for her. I don't know if you are aware, but Dani does much more than just moderate a message board.

I also defended her because she is my good friend and she is way above "running and hiding" when shit hits the fan.

Sexecutioner
01-25-2008, 01:05 PM
i agree with melanie to a certain extent. i think dani should be left out of it, but i do hate the bullshit comeback "why does everybody think gv owes them something". that is so fuckin retarded. just because i dont like the way they did certain things doesnt mean i think they owe me. and just because i criticize certain aspects about coachella doesnt mean i dont love it in general or im not grateful. just because they put on a great festival does not make them above criticism.

this is a fucking internet message board. the whole reason we are here is to express our opinions with others. these opinions do not all have to be flowers and sunshine. sure, its nice to talk about both positive and negative things, and i agree that it sucks when its all negative, but just because somebody has a negative opinion about gv or whatever, doesnt mean its cool for you arrogant assholes to condescend them and make assumptions or false statements about what they feel entitled to.

i also agree that the presale this year was lame. it saves you 20 fucking dollars (not 40, randy), so whats the point. ok, so you have tickets before they go onsale to the regular public, which is nice so you dont have to worry about it selling out, but at this point we already know the lineup, so if there is a rage type band, pretty much everybody is going to hit the presale anyway, so its not much different than the regular onsale, especially if it doesnt save you some money.

actually, this is what i wish they would do (they did something similar to this once): have a presale before the lineup is announced, and make it way cheaper than the sale after the lineup. because you know there are tons of people like us who are coachella loyalists, and will go no matter what the lineup is, cuz we have faith that gv will always put together a coachella worth going to. well all im saying is that it would be nice if gv recognized us as being important to their success and gave a little back to us, their loyal fans. does this mean i think they owe it to us, hell no. it just means i think it would be a nice gesture, like a reward for having faith in them.

Oh wait a minute, so they dropped the prices of the regular 3 day tickets from what they were going to be? After everyone complained about it? And NOW you're bitching about how in doing so that made the presale a lesser savings? Jesus.

thelastgreatman
01-25-2008, 01:08 PM
Cause the original quote for what 3 day tickets were going to be was 287 or something.

Sexecutioner
01-25-2008, 01:13 PM
dude, what are you talking about? are you making this shit up?

single day tickets: $ 90
3 day passes: $270 (no savings for buying a 3 day pass)
presale 3 days passes: $250 (20 dollar savings from regular 3 day passes)

all these prices are base prices before extra charges are added on. im pretty sure those are the numbers, feel free to correct me if im wrong.

faxman75
01-25-2008, 01:13 PM
You're lost dude. The presale only saved us $20 it never saved us $40 and nothing was changed because of complaining.

The fact is the person is bitching about their $20 savings.

oh and Sexecutioner, I don't think anyone is asking for all flowers and sunshine and lord knows i've used that exact phrase when people have been pissed on other band message boards when I was giving a critical review. The point of the presale is it saved you $20. Most presales save you shit, you just get to buy before others in case of a sell out. This time you got to buy early and save $20. Yeah it's not as great a deal as lest year but it's certainly better than nothing and not something to bitch about since they dont' have to offer any discount at all.

Your idea for the presale is what they did the last couple years, they skippped that idea this year to probably make up for some lost revenue or some shit, who knows.

That is accurate unless we want to get super picky 3 day passes were 269 and presale 3 day were 249.

Unless the presale was legitimately significantly cheaper -- as in, $75 cheaper. A true treat for the fans. $35 less when there's more than that in ticketmaster fees anyway feels a bit lame.
