Coachella just send your crew back out to the field and figure out a way to extend the camping area.

It's sad you are making these people spend $700 for a $55 camping ticket and I'm hearing that some of those tix are fake. Thank God I'm good to go.

No bueno

Then why make a thread about it, everyone already knows. And there's this neat little thing called the search function, you should try it sometime.

why search when you can just post it (again)...it just sucks for the hundreds of people that have gone to coachella every year and bought their camping pass closer to showtime because thats what they are used to.

but I guess in your defense granty poopoo bear everyone is allowed in the camping area this year so even if they didnt get a camping pass they can still show up and set up camp and offer some money to whos ever spot they are invading

granty poopoo bear? What are you, five years old? And if you try to set up camp in my spot, prepare for crucifixion.

Those without camping spots just send your crew out to the field and figure out a way to pay for the camping tickets.

It's sad you aren't making these people spend $700 for a $55 camping ticket for waiting too long.

No bueno

Yeah, they really need to sell tickets slower. Damn people buying them so fast!

It's called limited resources dude. You want them to magically create more spots this year or next year?

No, the Coachella crew has nothing to learn from here. They sold out of tickets the same way any other event may. You waited too long, as though you thought it an impossibility that passes would sell out. You took an unreasonable stance and now you're suffering the consequences.

Finite amount of tickets + Infinite amount of procrastinators = Lots of people staying home the 3rd weekend of April.

um learn to read and yes the coachella crew is realizing some problems. What I've heard from my buds working Coachella is that it is a bit disorganized and most likely no carcamping next year.

check.

and it's not blind allegiance. it's knowing the people running this festival for more than a decade, knowing their concern for the fans, and knowing that after the show is over everyone will be here gushing about how great of a weekend it was.

Considering that it HASN'T EVEN HAPPENED YET I don't understand how anybody could draw any sort of conclusions like this.

RV Tickets. Sold Out. Camping Tickets. Sold Out. God help us if 3 Day tickets sell out. They might just cancel all future Coachellas.

That is just crazy! We should just boycott.

Although I will be interested to see what will happen with the 10X30 spaces and everyone not having to buy a camping ticket. I almost smell a logistical nightmare with people fighting for tent space. Then again, the campground didn't look that crowded last year so maybe the demand is not a big as I imagine it is.

I think 10x30 is great. I bet selling out and most likely guaranteeing profit sucks for GV. Poor them, they will cancel for sure.

Also why are the people charging for extra passes villains?

I've never been to the festival before, but I knew I really wanted to go, so I bought my tickets and camping pass as soon as they were released. Isn't that what normal people do, instead of waiting until a limited event is sold out and then bitching about it? Maybe I'm missing something, but that's just logic to me.

Wait, you mean when you buy a ticket online for 10x what it's actually worth, you run the risk of getting a fake? I had no idea!

If they're charging face value, they're not villians. When they charge $800 they're not villians either...they're thieves. So Un-Coachellalike, don't you think?

I should mention that when eBay BIDS end up going into that price range, the only people at fault are the bidders. And possibly the seller if they have a second account to just skyrocket their shit.

I see nothing wrong with others who see the now average price that these tickets are going for and charging around the same amount. That's simply just being smart, not "Un-Coachellalike."

What exactly are they stealing? My friend had felt this dilemma she didn't want bad karma so she started the bidding at 150. Not her fault the silly MFers took it up to $500. More Drug Money for our Condo. *Turns on P Diddy & Mase*

I'm an old-timer. I was part of the Claremont Mafia in the 90s (Kevin Lyman, Ray Woodbury, KURT "FUCKIN' ROSS", Dave Foley, Salba, & many more). I'm out of the box-moving biz but my friends still work for Goldenvoice & Coachella.

I feel good about how I sold mine but I still. Think some of these people deserve to get charged a butt load.

Its simple supply and demand. Supply ran out + demand is high = high price.

Sellers are selling them for what they are worth now. nothing wrong with that.

If you waited until they sold out, ITS NO ONE'S FAULT BUT YOURS.

And to those freaking morons who bought tickets of CL from non-local sellers, especially using Western Union, that's your own damn fault too.

Quit bitching.
