Try not to be such a whiny little ****** and research the lineup a bit. You'll probably find there's stuff you like on all three days. That's what the fest is all about.

This is why many of us are loving this change. Prince, Madonna, Rage...they all threw off the balance. You get too many people in who are just parked in front of the stage not having fun, or they don't even show up until late in the evening. I'd rather have 50,000 people who want to have fun and ditch the other 10,000. And GV is clearly not worried about the financial implications. (OK, they are probably a little worried, but they wouldn't have done it unless they thought it was a good idea.)

What's good for the festival is good for business in the long run, and this is very good for the festival.

How are they money hungry?

What they want is for 60,000 people to come each day and have a good time. How do they make any more money by only selling 3 days? The total maximum amount they can make is the same.

Let's say they ONLY sold single day tickets. And they book someone like Paul Mcartney again. And 50,000 baby boomers snatch up tickets for that day, and it sells out, while there is only 10,000 sold for the other 2 days. As someone who wants to enjoy the festival, I might not want to come if I can't go one of the 3 days, so maybe I don't go at all. Meanwhile, you get an empty festival that day because those baby boomers don't show up until 9pm.

They just want to sell the tickets. But if they have a choice between selling one to me or to the McCartney obsessive, they'll pick me.

If anything, they stand to lose a little money from people like you. If not...if they sell out of 3 days, then they haven't made any more money than they normally would have.

Hahha I love how people get obsessed with "FAT CATS" like the monopoly guy is GV and he sleeps on a bed of money. It is so easy to demonize a faceless corporation with little or no facts.

I know that you can't tell me how many hours people worked to put this together. You can't tell me how much profit was made last year and who received that profit and the work they did to earn it. You don't even know if there reasons have anything to do with being greedy or if there are other reasons behind it.

All I head is waa waa I want it my way even though I do nothing to put the festival on.

No it's not. "Wring every last cent out"? The total amount they can make is the same (approximately). What does a recession have to do with it?

It's not like they raised prices. If someone can't afford to go every day, than they will LOSE that customer. If they CAN afford it, than they are going to be a better quality customer than 3 separate ones who don't care about the festival. But the amount of money for tickets is the same.

Of course, a 3 dayer probably spends more on other things. But even if you believe this concept that they are "money grubbing" somehow...yes! They are a for profit company. If the recession is hurting them (not that it did last year from what I've read), then they need to change the way they do business or risk dying.

I just hate the idea that they somehow OWE each individual something just because times are hard. Last year, I was in an economic mess, and I didn't get to go. I didn't blame it on GoldenVoice for refusing to give me a free pass.


i love coachella.

In 2007 I only wanted to go in Sunday, maybe Saturday. Guess what happened single says sold out immediately. So I bite the bullet and got a 3 day pass even though I thought there was no one I wanted to see on Friday. It ended up that one of my favorite performances of the weekend happened that night, Gogol Bordello. It was that moment that I knew I would be back at every Coachella.

If had been able to get just a single day ticket then I would have missed 2008 because the lineup didn't wow me at first, that has become my favorite year with Portishead's show topping my list of best concerts. I have a lot of good friends that I meet for the first time in 2008 as well. So just go all three days you will find something great to see that you never would have otherwise.

So bummed, this would have been the first time my boyfriend and I were able to make it to Coachella for 2 of the 3 days. Since we are not able to but 2 single days (friday/sat) we will not be able to go. I am unemployed and cant afford to go, but I was going to stretch my $ for the 2 days, now that I have to buy a 3day pass that I wont fully use I just cant justify it anymore......So bummed:rolleyes

Wanting "better" customers is about money. By Sunday attendees'll be more used to the festival than folks that'd just be showing up for that one day would. They're easier to deal with and thus cheaper to deal with.

And, really, "better" in this instance doesn't necessarily mean better music taste or better acting or whatn't. It means more interested in the festival and thus more interested in spending money in and around the festival.


The scalpers/resellers thing is a good point, though. The pass is less fluid than individual tickets and, as they say in the FAQ, if it doesn't sell out they can sell single days at the door (or they could choose to do so the week before or whatever.)

Though, really, if they were that money grubbing of a corporation, if they were that unconcerned with customer good will... they could've raised prices. Which didn't happen.

Thats a fantastic mindset. I went all 3 days last year year but this year really can not afford to go all 3 days and was looking to hit the best overall day. I am a music lover and love bands on many of the days but I CAN NOT AFFORD IT. so instead of getting like 100+ dollars from me they will be getting zero, and I won't get to experience any of coachella this year. its a double loss.

It's not a double loss, it's just a loss for you. That space will be sold to someone else who CAN afford to go all three days.


Or at least that's the idea.

If it's obvious the festival isn't going to sell out on 3-day passes I'd anticipate single day tickets being put on sale before the festival. Just a guess though.

01-23-2010, 04:19 PM
A question: What are the ticket policies other festivals? My guess is that Bonnaroo is definitely all three days; don't know about Lolla...

bonnaroo only sells the 4 day pass
lollapalooza has traditionally sold 3 day passes and single day passes
but you can't really compare bonnaroo/coachella to lollapalooza

lolla makes the ticket prices a lot lower (about 100$ lower id say) by having ridiculous amounts of advertising. plus, coachella and bonnaroo are experiences, lollapalooza isn't really.


(i say this having gone to lolla twice and coachella once)

if you can't find any artist to watch on a particular day then it doesn't seem like you're really into music enough to enjoy a festival. There are 40 artists I'd like to see this year and hopefully I'll get to see half of them. Either way Coachella is always the best weekend of the year, I get to run around in my underwear, take drugs if I feel like it and see some of the artists I've been listening to all year, can't wait!

I dont see what makes it sooo much easier having wristbands rather than a 20 minute line with tickets. And they will lose money. Example: A lot of people went just for Macca last year, which they wouldnt have shelled out $300 if that was the only choice.

I am going this year but i just feel bad for the fellow boardies and coachella goers that cannot afford it.

They'll definitely sell tickets at the door for single day prices, no way they'll sell a $300 ticket on sunday.

please don't lynch me or my family for asking, but what was the reasoning behind having one 3-day wristband vs. three 1-day wristbands?

i guess it makes sense to hand out only 1 for the entire weekend (just one line for the entire weekend to stand in, at least for your pass), but if someone somehow loses that one wristband, they are out of luck for the entire weekend (as opposed to just being screwed out of the one day), so that one wristband had better be pretty goddamned durable, especially if one is going to enjoy everything to the fullest

and i get that other festivals have been doing a festival-long pass for a while, but this is the first year for Coachella, so it should be expected that some people would be upset, especially if they're used to coming for single days -

it is impossible to lose a cloth wristband, if that is what they are using this year. impossible.

Yes! They will be selling single day tickets for Coachella again this year. Like always! They just havenít announced when yet. Thatís why you canít buy them. They are not on sale yet.

You are a tight ass sob aren't you. I can't believe you even think it is that much cash considering what it would cost to see the bands alone. Maybe you just don't put enough value on music and in which case you are the one no one cares about. So while you are your family sink back $200 worth of booze to get over the fact that you can't afford a $300 ticket I will be having fun. I know plenty of people who are in the same boat and work in crappy jobs but still see value in a three day pass. Maybe you can take your family get in your van and drive it off a cliff.

Before any lurkers make this argument (from the LA times comment section), allow me to counter it.


If 80% already buy the 3-day then why not let the minority 20% have the option of seeing what they wish? The real reason is they want to control re-sale market for single day tickets. In past years the 3-day pass was 3 single-day tickets, and people who wanted to go to 2 out of 3 days would just sell their extra day, but of course the organizer doesn't get to pocket that. It's nothing more than a money grab at the expense of fans which amounts to pure greed, especially in this economy. I still expect them to release a limited amount of single days close to the festival date.

You're probably right, but GV have every right to those resales - that's their money. To call it "greed" is laughable. "Greed" implies excess - there is nothing excessive about preventing scalpers from stealing GV's money.

if you have camped you got a wristband that is expected to stay on all weeeknd. And if you only got one wristband per weekend for drinking, i am sure you would make suer you kept a hold of that too. Its not like they just use regular paper for the wristbands...and if they are the cloth ones that is even better. I always liked those ones.

imo, I think alot of people want to see 5 or 6 bands because they hardly play locally anyways, like for me, I am going to go see muse and tieso, when do they ever come around? This is a chance to see big name bands that you love and who knows when they'll be around again. At the same time you get to enjoy a days worth of other music that you've never heard of and may like a new band. So a single day pass can go a long way.

Mmm ok so do you mean you live in Palm Springs and no bands ever come there? Muse is playing a bunch of dates in the states outside of Coachella this year. Tiesto will no doubt other US dates as well.

http://muse.mu/tour-dates/

a)I think the 3 day pass is good value for what you get to see.

b)It is a festival not a one day show by nature it is set up for a multi day experience

c)If you only wanted to go to see Muse and Tiesto I would think that perhaps you are not that much of a music and festival fan anyway.

That's my point exactly, the only tour date in so. cal that muse has is this festival, and no i am not much of a festival person but still nice to go for a day and not alot people are festival people but im sure they would still like to see their favorite bands when they come around.

Yeah so you live in an area where no bands play so you want Coachella to run things around the way you want them to go. I would have thought that if you never have any bands come to your part of the country you would be more enthusiastic to get a three day pass so you could get your once a year dose of music.

1) the "you get your money's worth" argument keeps getting brought up for a reason, namely because you get your money's worth.

2) what does living close have to do with attending coachella? if you bought a 1-day pass and lived far away the trek would be just as far whether you stayed for a night or the weekend.

3) camping passes for the entire weekend are cheaper than you would pay to split the shittiest room in the valley and still get a bed.

4) if you can't handle the heat, don't come out.

5) the point of making people commit to the weekend is to weed out the casual retards that want to come see 1-2 bands, get wasted in the beer garden all day, and in general detract from the overall experience.

6) what part about %80 of their ticket sales comes from 3-day passes did you miss? considering the lineup i don't see that figure dropping much, if at all.

7) we get you're frustrated by it, but remember that for most of the people on here the lack of single day passes means nothing to us. coachella is staying exactly the same for the vast majority of its attendees. thats why you're not gonna find sympathy here

That argument is worthless. Does the 3 day pass include lodging and food?

2) what does living close have to do with attending coachella? if you bought a 1-day pass and lived far away the trek would be just as far whether you stayed for a night or the weekend.

I've known plenty of people that come out from other states and spend $100 on a one day ticket, and $130 for a hotel that night, and they get a great days worth of fun. Times that by 3 and they don't even think twice about not going, not in this economy.

3) camping passes for the entire weekend are cheaper than you would pay to split the shittiest room in the valley and still get a bed.

Woodstock, 110 degrees, showers are rare, so is actually sleeping.

4) if you can't handle the heat, don't come out.

Most people can handle it with a good nights sleep. Camping in it, is another animal. Coachella used to be convenient. Now it's made to be a pain, or expensive.

5) the point of making people commit to the weekend is to weed out the casual retards that want to come see 1-2 bands, get wasted in the beer garden all day, and in general detract from the overall experience.

Yeah, we get the point genius. I was there for the rage shows, and I get it. Who attracted that crowd though? Oh yeah... it was the lineup.

6) what part about %80 of their ticket sales comes from 3-day passes did you miss? considering the lineup i don't see that figure dropping much, if at all.

I saw that number and laughed. Certain days have been dead the past couple of years. I really doubt those numbers are anything but a marketing ploy. Anyways, even if those numbers were true, that doesn't mean they sold out 80% of their tickets, it means that they sold out 40% of their tickets and 80% of those were 3 day passes.

I dont recall Coachella ever being dead in the last 4 years. Its been pretty well attended. And you do get your moneys worth, but the thing is you value your money for other things, and people on here value their money for music and concerts so in their mind they do get their money's worth. And in mine too. Which turns to the fact that the people who will plop down $300 without a heartbeat just says they are the ideal customer the people of Coachella want.

M Sparks
02-18-2010, 01:51 PM
The thing about Coachella attendance is that the design of the festival tends to minimize or exaggerate the crowds depending on what's going on and where you are in relationship to it. How many articles mentioned how dead things were on Jack Johnson night in '08. Yet there was bedlam at the Sahara for Fatboy Slim (which, to be honest, would not have been that huge a draw if JJ wasn't on.

Sometimes, there are particularly strong draws on most or all the stages...in this case, the crowds seem lower because you can walk around easily, and the people are spread out. If there are a few weaker acts on multiple stages, it can make the walkways see crowded as everyone eats at once, or everyone heads to the Main stage or Sahara by default.

In any case, has the daily attendance ever dropped below 50,000 since the 3-day started? The last 5000 each day are the ones who cause problems, get wasted, or don't show up until after dark. Fuck 'em.

How are you telling me like it is when I saw it with my own eyes. It was not dead at all. As a matter of fact it was a hell of a lot busier than I expected.

Coachella, lacking neurons and cognitive function, can't really be "dumb", can it? I mean, Coachella doesn't have any means of reasoning. No cerebral cortex means Coachella can't be dumb. So there.

And f's? One thing I always turn down is an erect penis. I'm sure many (but not all) would feel the same.

I would argue that while many here may show signs of Asperger-like traits, not sure how many would be considered truly autistic. But if there are any of you out there, let's go to Vegas and win us some money playing blackjack. "Ten minutes to Wapner!"

Anyways, even if those numbers were true, that doesn't mean they sold out 80% of their tickets, it means that they sold out 40% of their tickets and 80% of those were 3 day passes. If it was really that percentage, they wouldn't care about the 20% of leftovers.

Having been to every Coachella except for one, I'd say the only time it was dead in the past was in 1999. Even then "dead" isn't the right word, because 25,000 is 25,000. Once 2002 came along it HAS NEVER BEEN DEAD attendance wise. This year will be no different.

Only someone who hasn't actually gone would claim Coachella hasn't sold well since say, 1999/2001

O.K. Here goes. The rationale Goldenvoice gives for not selling single day tickets (I know, this has been played out) is that single-day ticket holders clog up the hotels. What about those of us who live in close enough proximity to drive there and turn around and go home? Isn't living in the I.E. punishment enough? I guess my question is, how do I not feel cornholed by this decision when my single day situation would already require the monetary sacrifice everyone seems to assume I should make for the three day pass?

Most major festivals don't offer single day tickets, this was a long time coming. I think it only adds to the experience to have people there the entire weekend instead of just one day.

Finally, a person who expresses his opinion without being a dick. I hope your experience is a good one.

You know what? F you guys. This was just a Sunday afternoon wank for me. Enjoy your music festival. Just don't be fooled: This is a way to get more money. It has nothing to do with hotel room availability. God bless them, if it works for them. They are not a charity, for crissakes. I just enjoyed going for a day. I spent a little money and took up about 4 square feet of lawn space. Why the hell you think people are encroaching on your "experience" is beyond me. By the way, ask your mom to turn up the heat in the basement; you must be cold.

You're right - they are getting a lot more money out of me by charging the exact same price I paid for the exact same product in years past. Thank you for showing me the error of my ways.

You seem to misunderstand. The "more money" reference concerns those who formerly attended via the one-day ticket option. Those folks, you see, would be paying three times the amount. Hence, "more money". Seriously, 3600+ posts? I'll be leaving you now. Enjoy your 3-day music extravaganza.

actually if it was a way to get more money then they would sell all tickets individually. Because you know, single day tickets are higher priced and the average daily price of a three day pass. So this greed argument doesnt wash.

If theywere truly greedy it would be a 298 three day and daily individual pass as the $99.

so the greed argument is out.

Yes, 3600 posts in 14 months...a whopping average of about 8 posts a day. I obviously have no life.

Who cares what the reason behind the decision was. The promoters need to do a lot more promoting and a lot less reasoning. Raise your hand if your first Coachella experience was a single day. Now raise your other hand if that single day alone got you hooked. I had 15-20 people ready for their first experience after showing them the Saturday lineup. That was my mistake for assuming this year would be like every other year.

The only reason my first Coachella was a single day is because that is all that was offered in 2001. I remember how excited I was to hear they were moving it to 2-days back in '02.

The 2002 and 03 Coachella's were what got me "hooked", the 2001 introduced me but had they not came out with a lineup I enjoyed the following year I may not have gone.
