    Default am i eligible for the presale tix??

    i bought tickets in 2006 but couldnt make it out to coachella last year, i remember getting an email about the 07 presale, i havent recieved any emails this year. do i have to buy tickets every year to be eligible for the next years ticket presale??

    you'll get a whole lot of incorrect answers to this, and maybe some correct ones, but ultimately no-one knows. pf has even said "if there is a pre-sale this year...". so it might not even happen.

    just wait and see. in the mean time, enjoy the crap the people post in response.

    yes Dani is Psychic Friend. thanks to the search function, here is a pretty definitive summary of the info she has given us:

Before that they did one with only newsletter sign ups and myspace peeps. They did presales after the line up was announced and they have done presales before the line up was announced.

    It has been slightly different each year.

    Don't make assumptions. just sayin.

    so I reiterate, we don't know.

    I will do everything in my power to make sure you do not get pre-sale tickets. Add an avatar and I'll get 1 ticket for you. Any suggestions on what needs to be done to earn a 2nd ticket?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I would assume he doesn't have the extra hundred bucks or so more it's going to cost for regular price tickets.

    *IF* there is a presale and *IF* the lineup is announced next week, wouldnt that mean the presale would have to be this weekend?

    I think last year the presale was announced, began, and ended quickly enough that it was over before I even heard about it. it was pretty darn fast. so it's not impossible.

    I'm still betting that the lineup gets announced on the 28th.

    I signed up for the coachella news letter, the GV news letter, the coachella facebook group, the microminnuty, befriended coachella on myspace and of course, the forum. If I don't hear about the presale, I'm going to be pretty upset.

    well, you're in microcommunity thats the only way you will hear about it. its for fans that buy online. Unfortunatly I have had other people buy my tix or bought in person-so I'm not worthy-
    Thank god my boyfriend is!

    it's amazing how people still think they know things, despite quotes from PF earlier on the very same page saying that nobody knows anying.

    Understandably, assumptions are made based on historical averages. Pre-sales are pretty commonplace nowadays, especially for large events, and have been held for Coachella specifically in the past. Why not assume the same would be true this year? Still, I agree that nobody knows anything. This is a topsy-turvy, unusual year so far. I mean, how the hell is everything being kept so under wraps? It's like they hired the same security firm JK Rowling uses.

    because there is no benefit to it. we build up expectations based on speculation and educated guesses, despite PF's comments that it has been different every year and might not even happen. if we're wrong then people get all worked up about it. and if we're right... nothing changes. nothing at all. we'd be just as well off waiting for the official announcement.

    oh, and bonnaroo didn't have a pre-sale this year, did they? why not assume coachella will follow suit? we can make assumptions any direction we like. it gets us nowhere.

    So, everything we do in life HAS to be beneficial or logical? Maybe some of us enjoy things that get us nowhere. Do we have to constantly advance? Stasis is fun too, you know. Plus, I never assume that Coachella will follow in Bonnaroo's footsteps.
