Did anybody else experience this? When it got really cold on Friday we went to buy hoodies. I am still in disbelief. As we were waiting in line, they raised the hoody prices from $45 to $55!!! That greed is bush league! I was so pissed, I went back to hotel to change, just out of principle. Still fuming about it.

People are joking here, but that was a bullshit move by golden voice, to trap people in a venue, and then hike up the price of warmth because of bad weather. That was low. And then to asked to be tipped after that. Unreal.

Sucks when you see them increasing the price while in line. I would of just told everyone around me when they go up to the window to ask if they could get the price before the increase. Repeat to the person behind me, and the person behind them, and so on and so forth.

Leaves a bad taste in the mouth but what about when they lower prices too? No one is complaining.

Prices lowered while a couple hundred people are in line?
When did that ever happen? Oh that's right...never.

I bought the hot pink hoodie for $45 on Friday around noon. I was disappointed to see they raised the prices to $55 (and also relieved I bought it before selling out).

If you were dumb enough to not check the weather for Friday/Saturday and not bring some type of warmer clothing with you then you deserve to pay 10 dollars more. I know we were all hoping the winds/clouds and rain would stay away, but it wasn't too hard to bring a sweater/jeans and change mid day when it got gross. Although I did buy a Coachella shirt Friday afternoon and ended up throwing it on Friday night for an extra layer. That was the most new merch I have ever seen worn right away at Coachella.

I paid 55 for my Coachella jacket back in 2007. I was not surprised by the price of the hoodies this year. I brought sufficient clothing. I just wanted a memento of Coachella 2012.
