a buddy of mine is in the same situation. you're better off getting a festival ticket now, and figuring out lodging later. if worse comes to worse, you can always sell your festival ticket.

wow. I'm really impressed! No more VIP. Unless of course you're comped or get a package.

I'm so sorry GV. The Line-UP is good enough.

Good Enough for sell outs in record time. Good Enough to sell out VIP tickets.

When will GA be sold-out? (I got bought some tix on layaway because I got scared)

Congrats Paul.

based on today, that would not surprise me at all. in fact i wonder if they will last that long.

Here's your warning. I hope your friend scrounges up enough money for the $57.10 in 10% layaway or gets spotted by a friend for a ticket. Better that now than God knows what when it sells out. THIS HAS BEEN A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!

agreed. They sold for $600+ last year when it was announced a Sell Out.

Anyone who can't figure out that they MUST buy tickets this second is too ignorant.

VIP TICKETS= SOLD OUT QUICK
TENT CAMPING - SOLD OUT QUICK
CAR CAMPING - SOLD OUT QUICK
GEN ADMISSION TICKETS - WILL SELL OUT REAL SOON

If you are referring to ticketmaster insurance, the fine print is quite a bit thornier. Basically jury duty or major medical emergency with documentation.

$30-40 shipping plus all the ebay/paypal fees can serious eat away your "refund" - upwards of $80-100.

They're not going to announce that at all. Maybe after the event sells out but they don't really have to. They won't say when it's going to sell out exactly either because you know scalpers will go at it to get the last few and corner the market.

BUT we are talking about a $310 ticket if you are not sure just spent the $7 or in others words a little over 2% of the ticket cost.

It's not a simple return policy, as scalpers would abuse it for any show with dog sales.

It's only worth it if you're worried about any of the following happening:

•Illness or Serious Injury – preventing you or an event companion from being able to use the event ticket, or if a family member is hospitalized or requires care by you
•Traffic Accidents – which could prevent you from getting to an event
•Mechanical breakdown – if your car breaks down within 48 hours prior to the event
•Airline Delay – if your plane or other Common Carrier is delayed (includes bad weather) while going to the event
•Home Issues – if your home is uninhabitable due to fire, flood, vandalism, burglary or natural disasters
•Employer Termination – providing protection against a lay-off
•Jury Duty – if you are required to serve on jury duty after having purchased an event ticket
•Work Relocation – if you are relocated by your company over 160 kilometers from your home
•Military Duty – if you are required to miss an event as a result of military orders
•Death – if you, an event companion, or immediate family member passes away

Not very many stadium shows happen. Off the top of my head, bands i know sold out stadiums with their own tours: U2, the Cure, Depeche Mode, Guns & Roses, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, New Kids on the Block, The Police, Madonna, Michael Jackson....probably some more, but whatever.

California Jam, also known as Cal Jam, was a rock music festival concert held at the Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario, California on April 6, 1974. It attracted 400,000 fans that paid, which at the time, set the record for the highest paid attendance and highest gross in history.

Acts that performed at the festival in order of appearance:
Rare Earth
Earth, Wind & Fire
Eagles
Black Oak Arkansas
Seals and Crofts
Black Sabbath

Last year there was almost none to be had plus there was no box office selling tickets in 2010. There won't be a box office selling tickets this year according to the Coachella FAQ. I would get tickets now if you do plan on going. If not, have fun with that 1 mile radius block!

actually, VIP passes arent' really sold out...

... You have to get them as part of a package.

Currently, you can get a VIP pass with Shuttle service for $749. And you can make payments.
