That sucks my friend :( Its the same over here, glastonbury sells out within an hour on a sunday morning! and that accomodates the best part of 150,000!! To be honest I was in panic mode on saturday booking coachella, thought that would sell out within a day.

I am sure money has a BIG part of their strategy, but it also makes it a festival and not three one day concerts. There is a large portion of the Coachella experience derived from the sharing of the entire festival with so many people.

They must be trying for force people to buy 3-day passes. Fuck 'em. I'd say my Coachella days are over. It's been fun, but the money grab has really left a bad taste. It was too crowded last year anyway.

Believe it or not, they actually probably do care more about the people buying three day passes than the people trying to get one day tickets... and why wouldn't they? Coachella is a festival and is designed as a multi-day event, in which they keep in mind that people will be there all three days. If they released 40,000 single day tickets that would limit the number of 3-day passes available, screwing the people who truly are the bread and butter of their clientele and ensure that the event happens year in, year out.

Oh hey im sorry asshole, I forgot that its just me that has money problems. I get paid on the 1st and 15th of every fucking month douche. I am in the military and I am about to be getting out, there is financial hardship. I was hoping that it would be nice to come out and see my favorite band. But maybe i should be happy that i couldnt get tickets. As for buying 3 day passes, I dont have $250 to spend on 3 days. I wish i did but i dont. So dont come down on me calling me a poor ass dead beat, sorry I wasnt born with money in my pocket fucking cock smoker.

Oh and for the record, COACHELLA IS TURNING INTO A RICH MANS FESTIVAL. How much is a ticket to Bonnaroo or Lollapolooza or a KROQ festival? You tell me? $300? I dont think so.

Bonnaroo is like $150 for 3 days. Lolla it depends on when you get tickets because they do price increases, but a 3 day for them was like $140. KROQ Weenie Roast is $55 a ticket. Inland Invasion is $90, $60 and then $35 for the lawn. And Acoustic X mas is $75 a ticket plus all your charges.. Coachella has always been about experiencing it as a whole, not just parts of it. Yes certain things will stand out after its all said and done, but AS A WHOLE is how it will be remembered. People will say "remember Coachella 2007? That WHOLE WEEKEND was awesome." then they will site certain performances. Stop whining, you shouldve saved money starting back in november when they announced dates like a lot of people did.


On a side note: Glastonbury in England costs about $300 USD for 3 days.

You are not correct, I am not a huge Rage fan. I have seen Rage before. I would rather go and see Red Hot Chili Peppers, I have been in Hawaii in the Navy since the chili peppers have had their second coming. I am getting out of the navy in March and I want to see my favorite band play. I have never seen them, The thing that gets me is this is coachella. Ive been to Coachella before, I was lucky enough to see my third fav. band at Coachella 01 Janes Addiction. I dont have the money to stay all weekend at Coachella, I dont have $300 to pay for the whole weekend. I am a fan of Rage and I am a fan of Bjork. I am a fan of Coachella. I would love to be there!

ok so chris, we have to concede that our whole "if you save up over the course of the year since you know coachella is gonna be during the last weekend in april and you generally know how much it's gonna cost and what other expenses you need so it shouldn't be THAT much of a burden on you when ticket sales come around during the end of january" schpeel doesn't really work on the casual coachella fans.

Never presume to know strangers' financial situations, especially strangers on the other end of a debate. My choice to use scant money for Coachella tix instead of rent or other monstrous bills wasn't the smartest thing in the world to do and will likely hurt me in the long run, but I dedicated myself to living in the moment. I'm sure there are plenty of situations somewhat like mine to match up with situations somewhat like yours, and I sure as shit am no rich man.


How much is a ticket to Bonnaroo or Lollapolooza or a KROQ festival? You tell me? $300? I dont think so.
Had you chosen to be a part of that Coachella online community after last year, the presale through that would have left you $223 short, not $300+ or whatever the amount is for a normal 3-day pass plus extra charges. Maybe that cost difference would have made a difference, I don't know. Still, worst-case, $300 to pay for seeing maybe a dozen shows each day -- call it 36 for the weekend -- works out to about $8+ per set. That approaches Fugazi levels. I look at it that way, and I consider Coachella and many other music festivals to be pretty damn sweet deals. YMMV.

Did all those people get screwed in previous years? I don't remember hearing tons of complaints from those who were unable to get 2-day passes.

Instead, they're stuck selling the tickets they don't need.

Sorry, smells like greed to me. Not that they don't have every right to try to make as much as possible, but it's giving me second thoughts.

I'm also seeing that they're planning on selling as many tickets as last year. Last year was bordering on too crowded to be pleasant. I get less and less excited every day. The magic is melting away for me.

Maybe if it looks like Friday isn't going to sell out, that may be worth going to. Although I like that lineup the least.

God, yookeroo, stop. They sell the three day passes because they don't want this to be a Rage show or a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. It's coachella, and they are encouraging the sales of three day passes by limiting the single day tickets. As such, they are promoting the FESTIVAL rather than any single band. It's best taken as a whole.

haha. funny.

Pretty much every festival in the world sells day tickets and entire weekend tickets too. If you think this is just a Goldenvoice plot to make a bunch of money, you're a cock. Naturally there will be people will be people who only want to come for one day, and with the lineup looking so good it will sell out very quickly. The weekend passes will sell out soon too. They're only allowed a certain amount of people in the arena each day by law, and they give everyone a fair chance.

Ok....you're pissed, it happens, they don't cater for your individual needs, the magic is melting away....... nobody really fucking cares.

To be honest with you I am EXTREMELY suprised that this hasn't sold out instantly! If coachella was a UK line-up that would sell out in hours. Garunteed.

Loook here bud... You may have saved money beacuse you made it in the military, I (talkin about me now) have been in the same job for 5 years making about $700 a pay check. Oh how silly of me not to of Saved up money for a festival. How silly of me to think that tickets to a 3 day festival wouldnt sell out by the time i get paid. What rank were you in the military ass hole? Tell me? Clubs and Beer?, you stupid fuck. You really have no idea, I am saving up, I am saving up for a car and an apartment. I dont have the want to ever go out here in this shit hole, I have no want to drink beer, I dont even like it. Its called information and its something you should get before you post you dumb fuck!

And yes, COACHELLA is a rich mans festival, just beacuse we wernt on the internet feening for the dates that the concert was going to be held on, some how disqualifies us from getting tickets. I wasnt in the IN crowd (a bunch of BBS dwellers) I bet the tickets sold out to the BBS dwellers. Anyway thats not my deal and thats not even what i am "bitching" about. I am bitching that this Festival sold out in a mere 2 days... I felt outted beacuse i wanted to go, now i have saturday tickets and i am very happy for myself.

I just got to see Lauren Hill at Marley Fest here in Hawaii... Good stuff...

List the amount of acts that have been through whichever island of Hawai'i you live in (presumingly Oahu) and I'll list the amount that have been through Las Vegas. We'll see which looks better, private.

haha. funny.

Pretty much every festival in the world sells day tickets and entire weekend tickets too. If you think this is just a Goldenvoice plot to make a bunch of money, you're a cock. Naturally there will be people will be people who only want to come for one day, and with the lineup looking so good it will sell out very quickly. The weekend passes will sell out soon too. They're only allowed a certain amount of people in the arena each day by law, and they give everyone a fair chance.

This is brilliant. You are a master of the bleedin' obvious. Do you run around telling folks that water is wet and the sun sets in the west?

I'm not complaining that they're selling multi-day passes. I've bought them the last 5 years. My point is that they have seemed to severly limit the single day passes in order to sell more multi-day. To people who only want to go one or two days. Then they also seem intent on overselling the even again. All this smacks of greed. Toss in the childish little Police games they were playing before the lineup was announced and the whole thing has left a bad taste.

But my biggest problem with the festival is the overcrowding. On a hot day, it just saps the fun out of it. Hot day + overcrowding + mediocre (for Coachella) lineup + greedy promoter = big drop in excitement. For me. Like I said, Friday is still on the table (hard to quit the festival cold turkey ;)), but it's not the same.
