I agree with the rate of tickets being sold and camping sold out in hours...add to it VIP sold out in less than a day....regular tickets WILL sell out soon.

I'm sorry for asking this question because I should be able to figure it out, but just for assurances sake:

Last week I bought 2 layaway tickets on my credit card. Today I just bought 2 more on a different card, but with the same shipping address. I know Dani had mentioned that people who bought more than 2 camping passes to the same address/card might not get them all (to prevent scalping?) But the same is not true for regular passes, right?

It asks for a shipping address but, before it does, you can check a box that says "Shipping address is the same as billing address". You probably did that.

My hope is that it's a reduced capacity, but in all likelihood, it's because Coachella is becoming mainstream and the "cool" thing to do now. Lesson learned this year - save early for next year.

If this years' installment of Coachella is reviewed positively, we could be looking at a festival heading in the direction of Glastonbury in terms of how quickly it sells out. Maybe not AS fast, but it won't be like it was as early as last year where you could wait a couple of months.

Not sure if this is exactly the case but when I bought my ticket straight-up through TM it said I had to ship to my billing address.

I bought a few tickets through layaway for my sisters and a friend (who I know are going to drop the ball on this) and FrontGate gave me the option to enter a different billing address.

Below is an email exchange I had with info@coachella.com.

ME:
"Hello,
So everyone keeps saying that Ticketmaster and GoldenVoice are going to cancel orders of people who ordered a suspiciously high amount of car camping passes and those tickets will be released after this is done. Is this really true? I understand that if they are gone they are gone and I should try to find other ways of obtaining a car camping pass, but if it is possible that you may be doing something about the obvious scalping situation I would want to wait and see if any tickets are released. I have been refreshing the ticketmaster website constantly for days and I just want to know if I should keep doing so?

Thanks"


Coachella:

"Yes this will be enforced

(from TM)
"Please adhere to published ticket limits. Persons who exceed the ticket limit may have any or all of their orders and tickets cancelled without notice by Ticketmaster at its discretion. This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number or other information. By clicking on the "Look for Tickets" button, or otherwise using this web site, you agree to the Terms of Use which, among other things, prohibit using automatic processes to access this web site or requesting excessively large amounts of web pages. "

I dont know the exact day or time it happens. I'm sure it's a lengthy process though."




So I would imagine it will take a little while, keep your eyes peeled. At least there is HOPE!

You know, like an official release stating, "Coachella has sold out in record time this year. X amount of tickets were sold."

thedude15
01-26-2011, 08:14 AM
"I dont know the exact day or time it happens. I'm sure it's a lengthy process though."

Do not see why. Only 8k car tickets.

a.) So that is a max of 8k orders if 8k different people bought one ticket.
b.) the big time scalpers (ones truly buying WAY over the limit) probably avoided getting flaged.

So it is really just the small time scalpers and people who accidentally bought over 2 (ie they have a group that needs 4 passes so they bought all four).

I could not see the actual # of flagged orders being over a couple of thousand. It does not take that long to look over a couple of thousand orders and cancel them. I am also guessing this is (or at least should be)the #1 priority for the OTL team at the moment.

I presume we will know the figures in the Special Event Application (75K* est. spectators + 15K* est participants) and the post-weekend crowd figures and that’s about it.
I can’t think of any incentive Goldenvoice has to release the number of tickets they planned to sell in total or the number they actually did.

*also, their estimation of 75K + 15K is likely a conservatively high number, considering a specific condition in the contract is “at no time on any day…shall more than ninety thousand (90K) persons…be present at the venue.”

GuyInTucson
01-26-2011, 08:34 AM
This is my fear. I really hope this isn't my last coachella.

I would actually not be surprised, at all, if the capacity was INCREASED beyond 75k. Why?

Well, there have been lot of gatecrasher/broken scanner/fraud stories from last year and it seems like GV believes they will curtail a good portion of that with several changes (i.e. the process of getting passes this year, the square-mile restriction, the "extra land" etc.).

There is a chance - depending on how much GV believes the gatecrasher/broken scanner/fraud stories caused the clusterfuck - that they believe there were WELL over 75,000 people in attendance last year. With the potential reduction of people that shouldn't be there, perhaps GV feels it can fit more PAYING festival goers and have it be less of a clusterfuck than last year by these said changes.

Just a theory and I hope my theory proves incorrect, but - at the same time - it wouldn't surprise me.

Coachella has taken roughly a week to sell out and its less than two hours from the second biggest metropolitan area in the country. Last year it took months. Years before only specific single days sold out and only a couple of times.

Years before only specific single days sold out and only a couple of times.

I know what he meant. I'm just not sure what he expected. I haven't even been going to Coachella for very long compared to a lot of people on here, but just since I have been going, the festival has grown so much, from switching to three days, to new camping options, expansion, new stages, new methods to purchase tickets, shuttle options. Then you look at what happened last year, how could you not see this coming?

When I first started going to Coachella, almost no one I knew had ever even heard of it, and now everyone knows about it. This didn't happen overnight. I can say with confidence that the lineup alone did not sell Coachella out this year, but rather the thousands and thousands of people telling all of their friends and family, "You've gotta go, it's incredible." I know I've been telling everyone I know about coachella for six years now. Is it crazy to assume that every coachella newbie has been doing the same thing? No. I always thought that Coachella would eventually become a Glastonbury-like situation as far as ticket sales go, although I will admit I didn't think it would happen this soon. Goldenvoice has done an amazing job over the years and they deserve this kind of success, and it irritates me when people say things like "Oh, Coachella is mainstream now, I'm not going anymore."

If you think it's the weakest lineup then why do you care? People who like the lineup got tickets. Now people like you who complain about it and waited don't have a ticket. Seems pretty fair to me.

I'm not sure I qualify as a "board vet", but I have been posting here pretty regularly for a year now. Got my pass on layaway Wednesday morning.
