On my phone so I can't post the link or picture but Coachella tweeted its infamous "Pssttt, pass it on" phrase today. Has Monday 10AM PDT. What do you think, pre-sale itself or pre-sale announcement date?

Could it really be presale? If it's presale...just what the fuck. I feel like it could be because if they started presale in June, it would sell out in a matter of minutes leaving thousands of people pissed off like in 2011.

Minutes? Nothing sold out during the week-long presale last year.

I think it would be hard to get a commitment for 3 weekends...I wonder if they might be considering another festival...a fall one maybe? But most likely I'm sure it's the presale announcement.

This is similar to John Waters idea of his Coachella. All the tents would have heaters in them, no access to water, and you have to hitchhike to the festival.

Yep and I don't see GV being able to throw a festival too close to polo season, so if they ever have one in the fall I would imagine it would be around the same time period.

Its deff the 'ANNOUNCEMENT' for presale and dates. Last year it was announced May 31st and tix went onsale that friday (June 3rd)


So whatever money you planed on spending this weekend... save it. Your gunna need it come friday.

I also heard they are doing a Mount Rushmore esque carving in the mountains overlooking the polo field. It's going to be Paul (left), Daft Punk (middle) and Naked Wizard (right).

There's some debate about the last head, they might replace the naked wizard with a Coachella board forum member (to be voted on), Skrillex, Steve Aoki, aidz needle, burgerito or the owner of I love spicy pie.

Who really knows.

Oh yeah and the theme song to the reality show will be "Levels".

I waited on the computer for 2 hours last year before I got passes, only to realize a day later that there was no traffic what so ever on the site and the pre sale was still going on.

With that said, I still hope it doesn't start today since I'm at work and can't be in front of the computer for that long.

true true ... I just looked at my order from last year and saw that it didn't quite add up to $349. Lost track of how much everything actually cost when doing layaway!

I'm not complaining fuckbag I don't give a shit about $29. I was just saying, IN GENERAL, that there is a price increase.

Yeah, but it's not that bad, either. Could have been a lot worse, I'm sure.

All that we can hope for is that the extra cash is being used for something legit and not just extra cash in GV's pockets.

I feel like GV is singling me out personally here. Fuck you, GV.

You have until Thursday to figure it out. Just talk to friends, family members, etc. You'll be able to work it out.

Uh, I just came in to ask about this too. There are three of us that live in my home that are going. WTF?

Same here. This is horseshit. And add the $40 price increase on top of that.

Can you switch the billing address of one of your credit cards to your work address? Then you could do 2 orders, both billed to you but at "different" addresses. But yeah, that stinks for folks who need 3+ tickets :(

The price increase is actually slightly more if you order two, since before the $10 shipping was applied at the end...now it's built into each pass. NBD I guess.


"ONE customized wristband container per ORDER."

Whoa.

Wait. How other way would it be? LOL

Here's a question: would you rather be inconvenienced by a) having to find your third, fourth, etc. ticket through a friend or family member that has a different billing address than you, or b) having to find your third, fourth, etc. ticket through a scalper who was able to hoard four passes for each of his billing addresses rather than just two?

ding ding ding. it's so fucking simple...

Or you could cry and blame GV for fucking you over personally. Since they are obviously doing this to screw mothers who bring their two kids. Not the fucking scalpers who buy 4 tickets for each address and make a killing.

Really?

Eh, I'm okay with the increase, I'd rather pay a little extra up front for a pass than have everything else jacked up a little bit once you get in to help pay for things.


Wait. How other way would it be? LOL

Exactly. I just like the fact they had to spell that out. :)

I'm thinking the minimized opportunity for scalpers to fuck people over is gonna make tickets sell out a lot less quickly. I personally met and cussed out 5 or 6 people over the past year that bought 4 tickets and sold them for anywhere from $500-700 apiece. Overall, a good effort by GV.

Maybe I can buy 2 tickets for both weekends and work out an exchange with someone. I guess that is my best bet.

Nope, they were just people that I met at school, parties, etc. that got a nice rant from me about how they ruin festivals and prevent a lot of people that can't pay $600 from being able to enjoy Coachella.

"Sorry roommate/son/daughter/etc., because I only have one card and I'm too much of a lazy fuck to figure out a way to get more tickets, you can't go to Coachella."GV is making it really difficult for people to buy more than 2 per weekend. At the very least, you have to trust someone else to help you out, or have two different credit cards with two different billing addresses. Don't discount what an annoyance this is for people in a household greater than 2.

I'm intending on solochella next year, so if anyone needs an extra ticket buyer let me know.

ZThere is a chance that scalpers could be helped by the limitations as they are more likely to have extra credits cards with different address. Though the PO box restriction will be a road block.

Is it possible to get a 2nd card/address up and working before the presale ends? People can put them on the credit cards of relatives, but the payments schedule could put some strain on relationships.


6 years at same price was pretty cool.

Wasn't the premium Coachella festival always the highest priced 3 day music festival ticket amongst it's peers?

I'm good as gold. Got my awesome hotel room before the price hike, got my backup rooms, got my friends on alert to buy their own tickets.
I'm happy I don't have to buy theirs this year.
It's an extra hassle for families but it's not like it's going to be too difficult for them to get the tickets they need.
