Its so crazy that they first give us a weak lineup,then they put tickets on sale and say they sold out of single days? yeah right!!!! they just want everyone to spend money on the three day passes even if they only want to go one day. we all know that they are going to put single days back on sale after all the newbies run out and buy up all the 3 day passes. Not to mention the price went up, and beers are now $15.00 a pop!!!!Goldenvoice is doing some shady shit this year!

Where do you see the beer price being raised to $15. That's more than double what it's always been. Smells like bullshit to me.

If there was any hint of truth what you or your "GV employee dad" had to say it got discarded right around the time you attempted to say the price of beer was being raised %114 to $15. Bullshit, just bullshit, this would never happen in one year. You fail at lying.

If you're upset about the lineup, so be it, but don't come at us with some rookie "my dad is some insider" crap.

Side note- very VERY few people choose to clean up feces for a living. But if he's into it, by all means. I'm sure cornering that market wouldn't be too tough. Just say'n...

Beers better not be $15 a pop..... I didn't mind so much paying $7 bucks for everything.

Paying $7 for watery piss is one thing; being ok with it is another. Ugh...

i'm pretty sure GV isn't really involved in setting beer prices, they just give Heinekin all the alcohol rights for the fest...and regardless, they wouldn't charge $15 for beer because people wouldn't pay it. i mean, considering how much people complain about paying $7, if they charged twice as much they'd get about 1/5 as much business.

BillyCrystal

oh, on a somewhat related note, i have heard that beer prices are going to increase nationally because of some problem with growing hops (not sure if it's true)...so maybe beer will cost $9 or something...

M Sparks

There actually is a hops shortage, I don't think it's supposed to increase prices much though. Certainly not at a place like a festival where they are overcharging anyway. Maybe a six pack will go up 50 cents.

I've heard that the main problem is that some small brewers are having trouble getting them at all. Or that they can't produce certain recipes with high hops content.

BTW...I didn't drink last year...what kind of beer do they have? Is it just Heineken? Can you get anything decent? I usually don't drink anything I can see through. :)

Ya thats more what I meant......... I will deal with it and still buy a couple. It's about the same price as it is at a hockey game here, and at least our dollar is stronger than it was last year.

I think a large company like Heineken probably even has contracts for their hops which would guarentee them a certain price......... not positive but seeing as how large a corporation they are, I could see it.

Exactly...it's really just affecting the small companies. Unfortunately, that's the only beer I drink.

If beer rises to 9 dollars a drink... I would suggest everyone boycott and bring a pipe instead. It won't be profitable if noone buys their booze. SO DON'T! and let them know why. The price should be 5 bucks. Period. It isn't worth 36 bucks to get a mediocre buzz.

It's not a problem with growing hops. It's a shortage of hops. Not enough acreage for the demand. Farmers are growing a lot more corn for ethanol now. Also, you can't just turn around and decide to grow hops and have a harvest next year. It takes 3 or 4 years for a turnaround. And yes .... beer prices are and already have gone up.
