Whatever. They cater to whatever sells the largest volume of tickets. And in this case, they made a judgment to pull the single days and get people focused on 3 day passes because in their determination that was the best way to maximize revenue.

Would have preferred a 2-day event with a consolidated lineup

Single day passes are nice, those are offered until the day of the event at Bumbershoot. I caved in and got the 3-day pass. My main gripe is not being able to leave and come back later in the day

we have the freedom to choose what days to go. in my case i dont care about saturday (well portishead is good) or sunday so i wont pay a lot of money to see little bands that i dont know. the 3 day passes are ok for people that like bands of the all 3 days or have a lot of money

I couldn't agree more! There aren't enough good bands to fill 3 days. Now they're panicing cos nobody wants a freakin 3 day pass so they took away the 1 day passes trying to force us to go all 3 days! Well I say fuck them! Go back to 2 days dumbfucks cos Coachella isn't Glastonbury or Isle If Wight. Accept that and deal w/it....

PF don't lie.. The reason why so many singles sold so fast is because of the rising popularity of Coachella internationally.. It's not just us on this message board who love Coachella, really guys..Jack Johnson does not mean SHIT... People love this shit because of word of mouth from past attendees.

it's not true. if goldenvoice wanted to "maximize revenue" they would only sell single day tickets.
1. it costs more for 3 single tickets than a 3 day pass does.
2. it might have completely sold out already if it were only single day passes.

I am happy that Goldenvoice decides not to maximize revenue by charging exorbitant sums for water/$10 or more for parking/1000 other things they could be doing. I am pretty sure they do their best to keep prices down while still keeping Coachella a viable economic venture. I don't think Goldenvoice are out to make the most money possible.

Never been able to understand the point of going only one day. It is a festival if you want to see one or two bands only go see them at a local venue which would be cheaper than a one day ticket to Coachella any way.

Last year was my first year...we only went one day. It was an issue of economics and time. I had always wanted to go, and Friday had just the right blend- I knew I'd be getting more than my money's worth. We loved it, and now we're coming back for all three days.

By your logic, you're only going to want to see 3-6 bands over 3 days, so again- it's cheaper to go to a "local venue". BTW...the nearest "local venue" to me is about 2 hours away.

Not everyone is you.

Trailmix
02-05-2008, 07:19 AM
Also if they had unlimited one day tickets available it could really screw up the festival for those who plan on going for three days. For example last year with the whole Rage thing Sunday would have sold out quickly and the other two days would have not. If someone was not quick about buying tickets they would only have been able to attend two days which for some would not been worth the trip considering how long it takes some people to get there.

You see what you're missing here is that GV knows that by limiting single day tickets, they can make up the lost for any day that may not sell as well (hint Friday). This was a clever tactic last year with a major headliner like Rage. I really did not think they would pull this same stunt again though. But with people especially disappointed with you know who (I won't say his name), I guess it makes sense for GV to be greedy again. The only day that was of interest to me was Sat but of course now I need to either buy a 3 day pass, which I will not do, or find some tickets on eBay, which is what I'll probably do.

the point of going just one day is that some people doesnt care about the other 2 days, very simple

and have like 3 fucking great band at coachella is cheaper than have just one band in a local venue

example coachella 2005: coldplay 45dlls aprox, chemical bros 30dlls aprox, weezer 30dlls aprox, keane 30 dlls, snow patrol 30dlls=165dlls and a coachella single day ticket its 100dlls!!!!

This festival, imo, for a long time was not a mainstream festival. Yes, there were mainstream acts but the festival itself took many years for it to propel to what it is today. To say that it caters only to people who want to spend 3 days out there is ridiculous. If that were the truth, then why doesn't GV promote that belief? Why don't they make that there signature phrase? They don't because not everyone cares about going all 3 days. Maybe some want to go one and others want to go two. Now that's how simple it is.

single day ticket - $90 X 3 + $1 for charity each day = $270 + ticketmaster charges for each individual transaction.

3 day pass - $269 + $3 for charity + ticketmaster charges for one transaction. less.

limiting single day passes is not a "tactic" by goldenvoice invented last year as it seems you think. as far as i know, you've always had the option of buying either single day or multiple day (3 days begining last year). i believe '99 was a different story.

It's never happened thus far. You go out, enjoy the festival, and try to expand your fucking horizons.

Right, and your point of view is exactly what I don't want there. You're not interested in seeing any of the legendary or promising acts on Saturday or Sunday just because you don't think you like them. The point of Coachella is to go and experience shit, and maybe you like it maybe you don't, but if you do it right you come away finding out that there's a lot of amazing music out there that you didn't know about because you're a narrow-minded cunt who only wants to see bands she KNOWS she likes.

Do you like any music that hasn't gone platinum, you silly twat?

im so lazy to listen to that media player, i listen to my music thats all. wait a knew muse before they get fuckin popular!!! haha a little example since 1999!! and i saw the killers before they get huge (i saw brandon flowers connecting his keyboard and carrying their equipment). i dont search for new bands, they come to me thats how i work :winkiss

yeah i have an excellent taste in music, when someday ill listen to your small bands and ill decide if i like them or not. i never said i dont have interest in portishead, the point is that i wont pay 100dlls just for one band if they add the chemical brothers on saturday im in!!

Coachella is a big concert. Coachella has and is changing. You can either change with it or don't go at all. In the end this is a business and Goldenvoice wants everyone to have a Coachella "experience". With that experience they want you to attend all 3 days. They don't have to offer single day tickets. Yes they might alienate some people but in the end it's all business. If you don't like the way they do business then go to another festival or music venue.

For most people, Coachella is well out of the way. It's practically out in the middle of nowhere - even the pure location of it promotes going for the whole thing. Go see the big bands at Staples Center and let everyone else make the plunge and go in it for the long haul. It's the only way to get the true experience.

It amazes me that anyone is pissed off about this, either way.

I would LOVE to go all three days and get the full "experience". I live locally (relatively speaking, about an hour away), so I don't need to go all three days to make the trip worthwile. I have little kids. I'm not dumping them off on anyone so I can go to a 3-day music festival. How, exactly, is it diluting anyone else's experience if I (or anyone else) only go one day?

That said, I'm not bitching because I didn't get my single day pass quickly enough while they were on sale.

Relax!

Also if they had unlimited one day tickets available it could really screw up the festival for those who plan on going for three days. For example last year with the whole Rage thing Sunday would have sold out quickly and the other two days would have not. If someone was not quick about buying tickets they would only have been able to attend two days which for some would not been worth the trip considering how long it takes some people to get there.

yu dumbass trailmix, tickets DID sell out for saturday shortly after they did for sunday. You have zero fact behind your rants. are you like 12 yrs old or something. This festival is the biggest, most watered down, rip off that i have ever seen. I better see them put up "POPE J.P. RISES FROM DEAD TO PERFORM COMEDY ACT" before i have enough interest to spend money on this festival. EVERYONE IS FAR FROM COACHELLA, like the homie above said, NOT EVERYONE IS YOU!

Right. Your attitude is exactly why I don't want single day tickets anymore. "I go for the big bands." Go fuck yourself.

Go fuck your own self lastgreatman. you really think you know more about music than your fellow coachella attendee. First, the big names consolidated into a festival where none of them are truly superstars has been the spirit of coachella forever. You fucking need to get laid, or something, becuase i do not pay 90 hots a DAY to see bands that might be kinda good. Go fuck yourself, again. Just cuz your a music snob and think people owe you something does not mean that you have any basis in reality. WHY DO YOU THINK BIG BANDS GET TO BE SO BIG? well my guess is that they are worth it. Unlike you, so please save all the fucking for yourself you pompus ***.

Awesome, so go ahead and make the wrong choice. I personally would prefer it if people like yourself weren't there, hence no single day passes. Go see Muse or The Killers or something instead of Portishead and Roger Waters, by all means--GO. Stay the fuck out.

dont worry ill go just the first day and thanks for your support i prefer to see REM, radiohead,muse and the killers instead of roger waters and portishead :lips

Coachella is a big concert. Coachella has and is changing. You can either change with it or don't go at all. In the end this is a business and Goldenvoice wants everyone to have a Coachella "experience". With that experience they want you to attend all 3 days. They don't have to offer single day tickets. Yes they might alienate some people but in the end it's all business. If you don't like the way they do business then go to another festival or music venue.

yeah its business im not new here my first coachella was in 2003. the organizers can do whatever they want, i just said i like the single day tickets because i dont care about the other days, if the other 2 days get the chemical brothers or REM im in all the 3 days but it wont happen, coachella 2004 i went the 2 days, why? because it was the best coachella radiohead, pixies, the cure, muse, etc, im not against the 3 day pass i just like the freedom to choose what day to go. and yes promoters can do whatever they want

the answer is because coachella gets bands that i want to see maybe 4 bands and its cheaper seeing them at coachella than seeing them in individual gigs, and yeah hours before the bands id like to see, iŽd see small bands but my motivation of going to coachella are the big bands not the small bands, very simple. if you want me to be cool as you just pay me the other two days that not a problem

i go to coachella for the bands that i like, not for the spiritual experience, and thereŽs nothing bad about the spiritual experience

Sorry, I actually value the quality of the music over the popularity of the bands. My bad. You really put me in my place there. Forgive me. Let's bring back RHCP and Rage, and we can put all that Pink Floyd, Portishead, and Kraftwerk music back where it belongs in the bin of music no one cares about. Unless, you know, they have taste.

i agree with the 3 day being inconvient. I love Coachella and have been going since 04'. Generally you find all kinds of great little bands you dont' know much about and your day is filled running between stages after agonizing about schedules. That being said 3 days is a big financial and time commitment counting travel and physical/sleep recovery. I'd rather go 2, so missing Waters (seen Floyd), MMJ (seen in San Diego, will see more), Love and Rockets (bummed I'm missing them), Autolux, Justice, Sia, and all sorts of cool little bands. Maybe I'm not hardcore enough or experiencing the festival enough, but hey, now gotta move Sunday tickets. It's like GV didn't want to worry about selling out all 3 days or if the days all have enough draw, we got at least 60k harcore people, so you sell the extra days. Plus makes it hard for my GF to come just Fri or less hardcore friends to just come Sat. Not camping, condo or hotel is a major cost people save just going 1 day. Last year Fri didn't sell out. This way they don't have to pay as big a names perhaps to headline.

I know other music festivals, comic-Con, and other events only sell the whole event but it does seem like a pain for all but the hardcore. Just because it's done that way elsewhere doesn't mean it is an improvement for anyone but the promoters. Anyway i know the hardcore say hey 'suck it up this is for music fans if ya cant' hack 3 days you don't love it enough' and I can understand that sentiment too. Peace

Because there's 40 bands per day. The thing that's great about Coachella isn't going to see the acts you already know, it's being surprised by a whole year's worth of music to obsess about that you might have never have heard of before.

You are incorrect. The single day tickets sold out before 3 day passes last year if there were unlimited single day tickets you would not been able to attend the whole festival like the vast majority of people do since they sell way more 3 day passes than single day tickets.

At Coachella 2007, Sunday single day tickets sold out in under 10 minutes. Saturday single day tickets sold out a couple hours later. Friday single day tickets never sold out. They were still able to be bought the day of the show. 3 day passes sold out 80 days in advance.

No, they don't suck. But my point, since you missed it the first time, is that if you think there are only 4 or 5 other bands worth seeing the entire weekend, then you can't reasonably claim to have good taste in music and expect it to hold up. And not knowing the bands, or saying you're too lazy to use the media player, doesn't let you off the hook. If anything, it makes it worse because you're choosing to remain ignorant.

Anyway, enjoy your four bands. I'm sure you'll have a swell time.
