This news is current as of yesterday, April 6th.

I have a source who is in software development, and some people were working overtime last weekend on a project that was urgent. Since I am a music fan, she asked me what I knew about a "rock festival in the desert."

As the story goes, it looks like Ticketmaster and Goldenvoice are preparing their websites for a surge of new ticket sales. It is a new option where fans can buy tickets based on their credit scores. Just like the layaway plan, but in reverse. Since the event is so close they are willing to check your credit and give you tickets, as long as you are willing to make payments. It actually sounds like a great idea in a struggling economy.

So if the promoters have put the software in place for this last-minute surge in weekend passes, WHO HAS BEEN ADDED THAT WOULD GENERATE AN ADDITIONAL 10,000 TICKETS TO BE SOLD?

It must be someone along the lines of:
U2
Springsteen
or - maybe they are ready to announce THE SMITHS have been confirmed.

Few acts except RAGE & RADIOHEAD/PIXIES have created the ticket panic for our favorite event, Coachella.

Your guesses?

I seen it too, this morning. It was up 5 minutes ago, but down now. I never thought I would type this, but you could be right about Jacko. Or maybe... finally... Bowie.

Or maybe ticket sales are just that horrible, and they are pulling out "Pay Later" because they fucked themselves with "The Killers" and "The Cure". Honestly, though has GV EVER let us down? I'm expecting to be blown away, yet again. I thought we were, but I am thrilled to say; We aren't done folks!

You might be right. Maybe they are just offering another ticket option for fans who are on the fence.

Say what you want about the lineup (so far), Goldenvoice shoudl be applauded for offering the layaway option as well as this pay later thing (if it is real). $300 is a lot of money for people right now.

and yes, they are trying to sell more tix. that's they idea you know.. they are THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of tix short of a sell out. So if you love Coachella at all, you should hope they sell more tix and maybe even have a surprise for people.

And really... what year did they not have a last min add or surprise? ...in the past 5 years :)

no...i think that people "on the fence" will not buy a ticket without a big addition......

a new pay plan will not sell tickets......people need an addition

i bought my ticket a month ago....but if i were "on the fence" a new pay plan will never convince me

The stuffing of envelopes has nothing to do with my original post.

What I said was that some new ticketmaster thingamawidget was being created so that people could buy tickets based on their credit. It's a new technology, as far as I can gather.

I didn't notice that a button was already in place on this website, which has since been removed.

The question remains whether this "pay plan" itself could create a ticket boom, or if they are getting ready for a headliner to create this energy.

Continue discussion.

To be fair tho, it would be a silly shot in the dark for them to go to the trouble and expense to offer a payment plan with no incentive.

I mean, peeps knew about the layaway. They woulda just done that.

Unless this was something they wanted to do all along but just now got around to rolling it out. They probably were mad busy doing months of negotiations to secure El Gran Silencio.

Your going to be at Coachella this year, right?

EDIT: I loved El Salvador. The culture, the people. The history is saddening, to tell the truth. But it will be interesting to see what changes FMLN makes. Our group met with party officials from both FMLN and Arena, and to be honest, and don't think either of them are fit to be in charge right now. I don't know your political affiliation, but it seems to me that ARENA hasn't been succeeding for the past 20 years, so they might as well give someone else a shot.

I stayed at Playa Las Flores last year, and will be going back this Sept.
Also stayed at another coastal city about...3 hours away from Las Flores, but I can't think of the name at the moment.
I had a great experience there. We traveled a lot to the local cities and explored a bit, but it is the surf that is going to keep me coming back.

you are a fool

of course they would, if they tie it to pre-auth visa payments it would work just fine

basically i need to sell more tickets, take it on time and get my money all summer, or sell too few tickets and lose my shirt...... even if they had a 20% default rate it would be a better thing than an empty and underfunded event...

It amazed me how daft the average person is, i may happen to work in finance, but this is business 101 guys, i have no doubt they are doing it and i think it is very wise...

It was weird meeting people I'd only chatted with on a message board the first time I did it, but since then its been totally downhill... people are people, you either get on or you don't. So its basically just like the people on the bus, or a plane. You can either chat or put on your headphones and pretend to sleep while you silently check out the girl across the aisle.

Maybe there should be a special pin that boarders should wear, so we know when another one is near. Or a special handshake.

Check the main site. Under "Event Info Tab" at the bottom it says Pay Later. I saw it this morning and thought I was Trippin... It doesn't work yet though.


Let me correct you. It says that you need to do a 10,000 word essay on Why is Coachella the best festival ever? Then you get your free ticket

FOR FUCK"S SAKE! Where did I say FREE ticket? I said there was a "Pay Later" option.

You will all see it within a couple of days I am SURE! A couple of other people saw it too and NO it was not an essay contest!

It was a button that said "Pay Later" when I clicked on it I got the standard 404: Error Message that you get when a webpage or site isn't working.

Whatever it means... Add or No Add; there will be a "PAY LATER" option... me and a few others saw it.

But, honestly a "Pay Later" option isn't going to sell very many tickets a week before the event, but DAVID FUCKING BOWIE would!
