Remember the old days when doing something nice for a complete stranger brought you good karma? That extra ticket that you gave away somehow magically brought you a mouthful of free shrooms and a nice smelling girl with flowers in her hair and no armpit muffs? A group of roadies invited you backstage and offered you some 18 year old scotch and a killer chunk of Armenian hashish, then.....you got to meet the band? Remember when?

I'm not asking for a complete miracle....just a face value ticket. I promise that if you willingly do good, and sacrifice your selfish desire to make a profit in lustful greed then somebody will do something priceless for you at the show.

Ok....I'm braced for the onslaught of taunting and negative posts with a gift of some wisdom from the Dalai Lama. "Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. "

And if that's not good enough, here are some words from a Bad Motherfucker:

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the Coachella valley of darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

Not today, but maybe I'll give you your miracle. I have a pass (wristband), but my friends were not able to get theirs, so I'm thinking about selling mine and possibly skipping Coachella this year. If I do, it would be for face value, as I'm a music lover not a scalper. I'll probably decide next week. Of course, I'm terribly torn due to the fantastic line up. We will see.

That lucky bastard.
I was able to score a couple tickets for my friends who held out. Got 2 tix for $750. Well, it was actually $700, but I just gave her $750 to cover shipping and to be nice.

sorry but this worries me

a.) below face to a sold out event? Sure some people might not want to scalp but it seems like everybody would want to recover loses.

b.) Cash. If it is a fake there is ZERO way you will get your $$$ back

I hope for your buddies sake it is really but I would be worry about it if I were him.

edit: my guess is that it is REAL but it is STOLEN (ie someone took a UPS package sitting at a door). Thus the real owner will call and get new tickets. So if GV/band merch/whoever does deactivate tickets the buyer is screwed.

Technically, without fees... face value = $269

I got 2 tix and a camping pass for $620... def not fake.

But everyone did pay the fees so the "real" face is 310+ shipping.

did you pay 620 cash? It you used paypal then I would be a lot less worried.

edit- the time is winding down so I guess people might be willing to go below face value (even though I do not believe it is necessary). But why would anyone pay with cash. It leaves you zero protection. There is no official record the transaction was done (unlike paypal or credit card or check) so you can not go after the buyer (even if you have a copy of their ID and address).

Because people for the most part are stupid.
