I received an email just now stating I had a shipment coming from UPS, but there weren't many details in the tracking info. So I logged into frontgate to check and it shows that a pass was sent out today.

It didn't allow me when I did it. It can be done by calling frontgate directly. It took me no more than 2 minutes.

I just responded to the last receipt email I got and asked how to go about it. Greg was very kind to inform me that all I needed to do was email them my 8 digit order number (found on your receipt), the last four of your cc you ordered with and the new address you want it sent to. I used this email address mailto:support@fgtcustomerservice.com

They're a little busy now, probably because people have noticed they've started shipping them out. So try the email unless you have time to spare waiting on hold.

Took me about 30 min for them to answer, and about 2 minutes to change the delivery address.

ok so ? are you really saying that you got an email that said some are shipped and then some arent shipped? because then that would be something i could try to find out about. but so far you were talking about orders showing up in front gate, then you changed it to saying the website says that 2 tickets are not shipped. i didnt even know the website stated "tickets not shipped".

if you have 2 different orders they are 2 different orders. just sayin

Sorry guys, although Dani's photo would indicate that they are getting the passes ready to ship, the info on my order is currently incorrect and my pass has not been sent out quite yet. I did get a tracking email from UPS, but it's just in the beginning process before it physically gets shipped. Either way, it would seem they are coming very soon.

psychic friend
02-24-2012, 04:22 PM
I got a shipping notification/my frontgate account says my package was shipped today, when am I getting my package?

From the time you receive your tracking email from UPS and/or your frontgate account says your package has shipped, your package will be en-route within the next BUSINESS day. If you are trying to track your package and get an error please wait until the next day and you should be able to see its status. If you are still having issues more than 24 hours after you've received your shipping notification please contact Frontgate at 512-888-SHOW

just fyi for everyone

dancefreak

My order page says pass sent yesterday "2 tickets sent 02/23/12"

I've received no email. I assume that just means it was packed.

Although the party isn't for seven weeks so I've already put far too much effort into thinking about it.


EDIT: posted before Dani's explanation. Now I've REALLY thought too much about it.

I sure hope mine arrives while I am home. My neighbors wouldn't steal my package. I'm just a bit worried about the signature required thing. I suppose one of my neighbor could sign for it. They have no idea what Coachella is and would have no reason to steal my tickets.

I promise not to freak out this year like I did last year.

But this really irks me...

http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd333/marc242/blankreciept.jpg

Been like that for months. I wrote to ask about it and update the address...they updated the address and sent me a normal receipt, and I got a receipt when the last payment went through, but it does not instill confidence.

psychic friend
02-24-2012, 04:56 PM

Yeah, mine looks exactly like that, too. What's the problem?

eMpTyFox
02-24-2012, 05:11 PM
Probably the $0.00 total. I was also quite frustrated that Frontgate could not provide me with a receipt showing the full amount as paid, because I added a camping pass to my order and they took my last monthly payment early. All I get is a receipt showing my last payment as "cancelled" on the day that I made it (Jan. 13). I've spoken with them numerous times and have been assured the tickets are secure, and even got an email with the confirmation code of my last payment, but no true receipt saying "Balance - $0.00". Pretty weird...

Anyways, back to the shipping of the tickets.

dancefreak
02-24-2012, 05:15 PM
The website receipts would ideally show what you ordered and paid just like the emailed receipt does.
Although since this is the case for seemingly everyone, not sure why there was ever a reason to stress about it.

Yes, exactly, and good to know it's not just me. But I didn't know that until just now, and when I asked about it in the address change exchange, they didn't tell me it was normal. What is the point of an online receipt that doesn't show what you ordered or how much you paid?

It was a regular receipt up until December or so, and it was updated with each payment. Then it just went blank.

You can try to get an address change by contacting customer service, or after the first delivery attempt, you can contact UPS and change the address.

Probably not.
The majority of my camping group (including me) all bought on June 3, and none of us received anything.
Not something to freak out over, though.
I was one of the first in my group to purchase last year, but I was the last person to receive the pass.

RIGHT AWAY?!?! They don't even leave a note or something?!

Don't freak out...

They make 3 attempts. Each time they leave a sticky on your door with instructions on what to do if you can't be home to pick it up (which includes changing delivery address).

If you have not gone to pick it up at UPS after their final notice, they will send it back after a set number of days.


If your tickets haven't been mailed yet, call FrontGate, update your delivery address to your workplace.

Last year, the delivery person just left it at the door. They didn't even ring the doorbell, or make my girlfriend sign for it. Thankfully, since someone was actually home, it wasn't sitting there all day.

I know it's slightly off topic but, I'm from Australia, missed out on tickets and am going to buy them from stubhub....

My question is do you think it will be alright to have them sent to my hotel in LA and they sign for it? I have asked the hotel and they said its cool, but i wonder whether UPS/FedX will leave it with them??

Any help would be awesome, cheers.

I have two separate orders:

1) (2) Weekend #1 GA passes, Car Camping spot, Car Camping Companion pass *(this order was placed first during pre-sale)
2) Weekend #1 GA pass (this order was placed 15 minutes after my other order during pre-sale)


The 2nd order I placed has been sent out and I have received the shipping notice. I have not received any shipping notice for the other order (placed 1st) and on the frontgate website it indeed says that the passes from my other order have not been sent out yet.

I find it odd that the first order I made has not been sent out when the 2nd order I made has been sent out... orders were only placed 10-15 minutes apart too.

Edit: oops! Orders were actually placed an hour and a half apart. This makes it seem even more odd.

maybe they started shipping the ones without camping passes first? since the camping passes are tied to a wristband, perhaps that box needed extra instructions/an extra step?

This is so awesome that it bears repeating. I've been using this service for a couple of months and I love love love it. Sign up now if you want to have an easy and stress-free package delivery.

You can set it to send you text messages (or emails or voicemails) whenever any UPS package is on its way whether you already have a tracking number or not. It gives you the tracking info so you can then track it online as well. It can text you when your package is out for delivery to your house, can text you when its been delivered, and once they've tried once at your delivery address, it lets you go online to change its destination, including having it delivered to any UPS store rather than trying at your delivery address over and over. Then you can pick it up there at your leisure. It's seriously improved my life and I'm totally not stressing about Coachella pass/ticket delivery for the first time since 2005. Wunderbar.

It seems pretty obvious that anyone who ordered a camping pass with their order hasn't even gotten a notification yet.

So if you have a camping pass as part of your order, it seems more than reasonable to not freak out and just wait a week or two!

My Coachella pass from 2011 I got from the UPS driver who was sitting outside my building in his truck watching my door. I had to sign for it.

For the BIG FOUR festival, they just wedged my tickets in the side of my door....

I ordered mine the first day of presale, for weekend 1.

There really doesn't seem to be any real pattern to the distribution process. Amy and I ordered ours on the same day, live in the same city, my last name begins with an A, hers begins with an E, and mine won't arrive until Monday. I think it's just random.

I did also recieve a delivery confirmation email from UPS very shortly after my package arrived, so you will know if they leave it, or leave it with someone else if you aren't there to sign for it yourself.

I got my email confirmation the other day, then once it got to UPS I had to go their My Choice online and change the delivery address. Somehow Front Gate still had my old address.

So it would have arrived in Arizona tomorrow but there'd be no one who could sign for it, now it is being delivered to my work next Friday.

They were taking it seriously, too. I got a call today from UPS making sure I actually asked for this delivery change.

Right after reading this message I checked my email inbox and noticed they had just sent a confirmation email.
1 ticket plus camping pass for weekend 1, purchased the first day of the presale.

A 64 page book/novel/booklet accompanied with pictures? I can probably get through that.

I remember when all we got was a couple of ghetto paper tickets and that's the way it was and we liked it!

Also I just got my shipping notification now, so for folks who haven't seen one yet, don't freak, they're still being churned out.
