this will be my first time attending.. and I can only swing a single day ($/hotel limitations).
I've heard they sell out super fast?
Is this even true, and if so how fast?
...and in how soon do I need to decide and purchase my ticket? (within minutes/hours/days)

thank you...

Sorry that was terrible. Just trying to impress Dr. Lufs and GPS. Sometimes I build myself up by tearing others down.

Don't be like me.

I was impressed, good work sir :cool:

OP, go rob a bank, going only one day isnt going to be enough to fulfill your needs.

Ok good to know. I figured at much, I was just google-ing the hell out of it and landed on something saying it sold out in minutes which freaked me out. (which seemed weird..) but I guess I'll just buy it tomorrow to be safe.

@wizard: don't worry, I'm difficult to offend.

It won't sell out that fast. Some of my friends walked up and bought tickets at those kiosks every day. Also tons of scalpers. But yeah, smart to get 'em early if you can

What single day do you think will sell out first now that the lineup is out?

none. its one ticket only, good for all weekend

Mmmm none! They will sell great, but selling out! It is hard to sell over 50K tickets at about $100. If I had to pick any day, I'd say Sunday.

i thought they have been trying to go this way for the last few years and it was only a matter of time before it really took effect.
Wasnt the reasoning for the poster in 08 being just one big list.

01-19-2010, 08:30 AM
lol...you should go all go buy single day passes from Stubhub. It means the sellers will have to supply you with a weekend pass under terms of Stubhubs fan protect agreement! LOL

Egull

Whoa crazy I retract my previous statement. But 3 day is the way to go anyway!

Wow, no single days this year.

That'll cut down on scalpers, I bet. Those always sold out rather quickly.

actually, kroq said that when callers call in to win coachella tickets, they pick the days they want to go. so that means that there has to be single day tickets available. i mean, how else would they let them go the specific days they want to? otherwise, they'd just say "win a chance to attend the entire festival" wouldn't they?

Well I bought a pair of tickets for just Sunday from Stubhub-seller has confirmed, based on last years knowledge. Let see how the seller fills the order-they now have to send Sunday or a 3 day pass. Either way its a winner as far as I am concerned. LOL LOL LOL

Kind of weird that they're not using that format again, being that now the festival is completely being sold as a single event.

I'm not buying the no single-day ticket thing.

Nowhere on the website does it actually say that there will be no single-day tickets available; it just fails to mention them completely.

I suspect that they are trying to create doubt in potential buyers' minds about the possibility of single-day passes so that lots of people will just shell out the cash for a 3-day pass out of worry that they will miss out completely if they don't do so.

It just wouldn't make any sense to do 3-day passes only. Outside of the relatively small amount of people on this board, most people who attend Coachella only go the single-day route, and most would rather miss the festival completely than have to buy a 3-day pass at $250+ each.

Especially given the current state of the economy, GV would be losing MASSIVE amounts of money, attendees, and first-time festival-goers if they get rid of single day passes. I'm just not buying it. I fully expect single day passes to go on sale as soon as 3-day pass sales dwindle and GV realizes they may be hosting a half-empty festival.

And how do you know all these statistics? I'm sure GV is a competent enough company to make effective decisions like this. If 3-day passes in the past sold as poorly as you claim, there's no way they would go this route. Therefore, you have no idea what you're talking about.

Paul T., is that you?



PS - I read an interview or something similar within the past two years that mentioned that less than half of Coachella attendees go to all three days. I need to search for the article and will post a link when I find it. Anyone else remember this?

PF,
If there are no single day passes this year, I will not be able to attend even one day for financial reasons. I was going to shoot for one day maybe two. I can't afford a festival pass, as I'm sure many others can't.

Is this for real? Set in stone? A done deal?

I have attended Coachella every year with a three day pass since 2004 and it would KILL ME to miss the entire thing this year because there were no single days going on sale.

This, being so new a rule, I just want to clarify that NO 3 DAY PASSES in 2010 EVER is correct.

Thanks!

From the FAQ:

Will there be tickets sold at the event?
If the festival doesn't sell out in advance, then tickets will be available at the box office on the show dates

1. The festival will not sell out.

2. Unless you think GV is going to sell you a single-day ticket on Sunday for $269.00, there will be single day tickets available at the box office on the day of the show. That's how I read it between the lines anyway.

Or, just read the post Psychic Friend already made on the very subject. In this thread. A few posts back.

Which is how it always should have been. Selling single days FIRST doesn't make sense.

At Vegoose...not that it was a model for a good festival...the original lineup announcement did not include what days people were playing. Only 2 day passes were sold. 6-8 weeks later, they released the info on who was playing what day and released single day tickets.

No excuse for not being able to afford a 3 day pass (if you have a job, I mean). Thats why they created LAYAWAY!!!
