Hey,
Anyone know how many people will be at this gig? Will there be over 100,000 people there to see RATM or whats the number like?

I think Goldenvoice said there were 60,000 people per day last year...but Sunday felt way busier than that. It sure felt like 100,000.

Ya, i heard only 50,000 total but surely it will be near double that. No statistics i can find.

no stats here, but its been 45,000 - 50,000 in 04 and 05. last year there were extra tickets sold and room provided to accomodate about 65,000. all years were sellouts.

if it was 60k in 04, then it was the same in 05. ive always heard a little over 50,000 for 04 and 05.

I always read The Desert Sun and it has said 60, who knows - really?

I think the levels have been about the same since 04 (around 60,000)

There was only around 17-20,000 for the 1999 year

Well so it may be the venue tops off at 60,000 from what I understand. I know i won't be seeing them so that would make 59,999 if every other single person attending the festival (not the RATM concert) crammed in front of the main stage when they took it.

so yes, im sure they have a rabid huge fan base like many other well known bands but if a venue allows less than 100,000 into the show well that would mean the size of crowd would be less than that. Unless there is some new math that im unaware of.

100,000 is A LOT..i'm sure only 50-60k can fit in that venue

I am not sure if 100K is plausible for the venue to accommodate to, but you bet your sweet ass that it is a possibility. Considering proximity and and the situation in which RATM has been in the past...100k doesn't seem that far fetched. Especially with the other great acts on Sunday!

They can't fit 100,000 onto the fields comfortably.

It'll be 50-60 as always.

what if there's a riot outside and 50,000 rage fans go nuts and crashes the party?

Last year on the sunday a Television report said there was 80k watching Madonna, it felt like a lot at the time

Actually... that seems incredibly far fetched. Rage couldn't sell out a 70k football stadium - very very few bands can - but they're going to bring 100,000k to some polo fields? I don't think so.

I'll bet they could if they were playing in LA or NYC. The fact that this is probably their only reunion performance has a lot of people quite excited.

It's not going to be at capacity this year. The "Sell Out" is super misleading because if you go to online ticket sites they have mass tickets for sale at astronomical prices. Which we all know will not sell. The typical Coachella fan isn't going to pay $1200.00 for a 3 day pass. In all honesty, last year would have been more realistic being Madonna was playing. Her fans pay that kind of money. So, sadly a lot of people won't be going this year. The good thing is that a lot of those sites will be out of cash.:lool

We are going to be crammed in like sardines - there's no question.

If I don't get a ticket this year I will definately be at the gate to rush it with thousands of others. Not my problem.

Billboard article with an interview of Paul tollet states capacity will be less than the 60,000 from last year... So think 50k to 55k for each day...

....... which is at odds with what most of us there last felt. Saturday was ok, Sunday was jammed.

I know that thousands of people are gonna be trying to rush the gates. with a big enough crowd, it really wouldn't be possible to stop them. I bought my tickets the day they went on sale, I decided this year wasn't gonna be a good year to wait around. I had the money, I spent it. I don't need to break in. when I went in '04, I saw people hopping the fences behind the portapotties. if you walk around long enough you'll find spots that aren't really being watched. and most festival-goers aren't going to care. I thought it was funny...
