Tim was there in 2012, backing up Jimmy Cliff (ugh)
The last two posters sound like the people who predicted Coachella was dead after the Jack Johnson debacle. Some great years followed. look, the lineup (especially headliners) can vary greatly...
6.5 hours later, tix are still available for both weekends...no waiting. awesome!

call the wahmbulance
Archie, help is on the way
Weekend 2 is Easter long weekend.
Thought I'd put this in writing in case people start whining next year that they had no chance to buy tix. They're available now..without any waiting...and have been for well over an hour.
Tix are now available without any wait. Haters gonna whine.
I waited 40 mins in the waiting room, then got worried cause the page refreshed to something like 'Weekend 1 is almost sold out, would you like to purchase Weekend 2'.
After another minute, though,...
there were more scalpers under the old system. Pre-sale is not the only factor but it is a factor in reduced scalping
Yep. Scalpers are less likely to lay out thousands of dollars for wristbands that they cant sell for 10 months.
I love pre-sale. It dissuades scalpers to some extent because they can't get their mitts on wristbands for resale for almost a year. If there was no pre-sale, professional scalpers (the ones who run...
Doesn't 10 a.m. Pacific sounds like the time tickets usually go on sale?
okay, we'll talk next week :-)
How about $300 for both?
ucrmacca is confusing Coachella with the Super Bowl halftime show.
Coachella has been huge internationally since 2004 when it sold out. It has been growing steadily ever since, first to 3 days,...
This! The Stones have always been a horrible live band, even when Mick still had a voice. That's why none of their live albums (with the possible exception of the Taylor-era Ya Yas) is listenable....
eg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBSotxpthXQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwRwuZ54UGA
The problem with SM (well, there have been many since 1989) is that two of the main factors behind their sound are gone. Mick McNeil on keyboards and Derek Forbes on bass were integral to the group's...
They're cute and quirky in a small venue. I saw them open for Metric recently and wasn't overly impressed
OP is confusing Coachella with Metal Day at the 1983 US festival
I'd prefer John Cale
2004, 2006, 2012, 2010 > 2008, 2013
Big-name adds simply don;t happen most years. 2006 was a great exception, as two of the late adds (Massive Attack and Daft Punk) put on great shows. However, Saturday just screams out for a...
I took this year off. Made the right decision. It's not just the questionable headliners. It's where are the others -- e.g.:Atoms For Peace, etc. Even the second and third-tier bands aren't doing it...
Unless you're very upfront about the fact you're Flac comes from a very lossy source (webstream), it's misleading to call it Flac. I can make a Flac of a 32 kbps MP3 recorded over a satellite...
I'm worried these might be .Flacs off a 64 kbps MP3 audio stream (the webcast). Origin is important.
Thanks for the AUD recordings. Do you upload in Flac? The webcast rips are nice and clean, but at 32 kbps, they're drained of any punch.
It's the annual announcement of where The Black Keys will be on the lineup.
Just an FYI.....The Seun Kuti webcast listed on the first page is audio, not video.
If it's Wknd 1, a guy on ecstasy was talking and pumping up against people right at the front for the first 10 mins or so. Pain in the ass.
menikmati. I was close to front row for Godspeed wknd 1. Lunatic ecstacy guy ruined the mood briefly.
I think it's fair to put forward a focused request
yep...I put in these requests because they were'nt in that forum
Seun Kuti, The Rapture, Beats Antique, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Black Angels, The Dear Hunter.
anyone got tips?
Can someone either send me a demonoid invite or upload the Seun Kuti video elsewhere?
Yes, The Rapture set was great! we need video
yep...three of us weekend 1
I can't find a map of the site itself this year, and I don;t see any mention of the do lab. Is it gone? Has the Heineken Dome swallowed it up?
aaargh.....still no wristbands....not even an email...an I'm weekend 1. Dani, can I freak out now (you said the 21st).
Okay...I'm still confused. It seems everyone is getting emails before they get their wristbands. I have not received anything...not even an emaikl. And I'm weekend one.
Thanks! I was worried because som people seem to have received emails and wristbands already, and I've heard nothing
Should I be worried that I haven't received an email abour my wristband? Did everyone get emails telling them they'd been sent?
You know who the real scalpers are? Mega-scalper operations that use bots to snap up hundreds of tickets per minute. Anyone heard of Ticketmaster vs RMG Technologies?
So you and the OP are convicting Goldenvoice of doing something based only - ONLY -- on evidence that others do it? Also, anyone who wanted a $300 ticket had DAYS to buy one, not seconds, not...
How does*any of this apply to Coachella, where tix were on pre-sale for DAYS? Anyone who wanted one had the opportunity. And because they're all GA, scalpers/resellers/whoever can't charge bigger...
I find the Cali smog makes the sun feels less hot. Wost-case scenario -- chill out in the air-conditioned tents
