Lack of a presale so far is pretty disappointing. Especially for those of us who are going to go no matter what the lineup is. It was always a nice guarantee that hipster fan-boys wouldn't buy up all the tickets before old-timers like myself (You know...people who have been to every single Coachella festival) got 'em.

How is that a presale? That's more of a "Pssst, you can buy now if you know the secret word" sale.

In the past, I thought the point was to offer a discount to the loyals before the lineup appeared.

Total BS. The presale was on Ticketmaster the week before the lineup came out.

Actually you're wrong. The presale was post lineup last year on ticketmaster a couple days before the regular onsale and it saved you about $20 and it was done with a KROQ password.

In years past there had been a presale prior to lineup release that was a significant discount of around $80 off the price, that did not take place last year.

So YOU are wrong.

And even that only happened ONE year, to my knowledge.

a pre-sale is when tickets go on sale before the general onsale.

which these days is stupid, i remember it from when the bulk of people bought there tickets at an outlet.

I think they had a presale twice with the big discount but we are both speaking out of school on the specifics of that apparently.

You're confusing Coachella with Lolla... they sell tickets before the lineup is announced... Coachella is always after the lineup...

Actually if you went to coachella in 06...pre-sale was before the line up was ever posted. I know this for a fact cause I went in on it blind. So they have indeed sold pre-sale tickets prior to a line up being posted in the past.

The blind presale was a great gift to those of us that are loyal to the festival regardless of lineup. It made us even more loyal than before.

Just sayin'.

Yes, and they did it again in 2007 from what I recall.

It did happen that way. There was indeed a presale by ducatking in 2007 that took place before the lineup was released. See the ducatking thread. Do searches on google.

You people are more stubborn than me.

my post is based on knowing rage was playing before tickets were available on ticket master. i never scour the internet for this stuff. it'll come whether i find it first or not.

what if Coachella only gave us a line up for 1 day, and left the other two up in the air(yet well fucking worth it!)

and no presale? who is spreading their instant gratification lies & bs?


just give GV some time

i bought a presale dukat king ticket in 07 but i didnt receive the ticks for the three days until like two weeks before the fest. it kinda had me worried cause i hadnt seen any notices before on the site about the presale - i was notified in a personal email. additionally, the presale was before the line up - but at significant savings from the previous years - like 200 instead of 250. also ticketmaster presales might be a good idea if you can only go one day and wont be available when they all go on sale - remember gv has the power to cut off single day ticks at any time without notice and without any assurances the single days will be sold again.

actually, NO - presale did NOT come after line-up. That was one of my peeves. But I figured, Coachella will deliver, and it did... But NO - there was NOT a pre-sale AFTER the line-up. That would be kinda beside the point...

My issue this year is that it's taking them a REALLY long time to announce anything. Sale dates, pre-sale dates, line-ups, etc... Taking longer and longer each year, but more and more planning, and more and more money...

BAH!

But, I still love Coachella. Bonnaroo may be closer to me now, but Coachella will always be the ONE!

ooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh... maybe that's what I've been preachin'... damn. I should have read all of the posts!

But yeah, you're right... for '08 it was a true pre-sale for non-newbies who were willing to buy before the line-up was announced.

Damn, I need to read the thread before bitching, huh??? Apologies all around!

You still got it fucking wrong. Even after reading. In 2008 there was a ticketmaster presale AFTER the lineup was announced. It's a FACT. Many people here took advantage of this presale since there was no PRE LINEUP presale like there was in 06' and 07'.

The 2008 presale was done POST lineup and you purchased through ticketmaster with a KROQ password and it saved you about $20. Again, there was no pre lineup presale in 2008.

In 2006 and 2007 there WAS IN FACT a pre lineup presale. People did in fact purchase tickets PRIOR to the lineup being released. There was a significant savings for those who took advantage. Somewhere between $60-$80.

Now please just stop.

what do we consider pre-sale:

tickets that go on sale before the show?

tickets that go on sale before the show or line up?

both?

fuck me? no!! FUCK YOU!!!
