    Red face "The Desert Sun" ticket update


    3-day Coachella tickets still available, individual passes no longer on sale


    Bruce Fessier and Mariecar Mendoza The Desert Sun January 27, 2008

    Single-day tickets for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival are no longer on sale -- at least for now.

    Paul Tollett, president of Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice, told The Desert Sun on Sunday individual tickets for the three-day event -- slated for April 25-27 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio -- sales for one-day passes were cut off at 6 p.m. Saturday.

    "I think it was the second-fastest selling Coachella," Tollett said.

    Tollett, who founded the first Coachella in 1999, said they cut off the tickets to try to keep the crowd around the same size as last year, which was about a showing of 60,000 people a day.

    How do you know the real world is excited? Did Goldenvoice or ticketmaster release info about how many tickets supposedly were already sold?

    Man.... there HAVE to be additions.

    And, I am truly amazed that single day passes are sold out after being on sale for ONLY 32 hours....

    That is, unless they just sold like 1000 single tickets for each day.

    I must say, I love Coachella, but I am really pissed off at the whole thing at this point. The times I've bought Coachella tix in the past it has never sold out the FIRST day! I just feel this is a racket! At least GV should make some sort of friggin' statement, or let everyone know their intentions. They are messing with people who love to come to Coachella, and who, like myself, have waited all year for.
    I was really holding on to the thought that they would release some tickets or make an announcement, but I am afraid that by the time they do I will be over the whole thing!
    Our country is hurting, people are out of work, I lost my job the Friday before Christmas and just started a new one, so I didn't have the money the day tix went on sale. My buddy and I were going to go in on getting the tickets, but we didn't buy them the first hours. And now it seems as though we have lost out.
    We can't afford to go all three days, and as a matter of fact I thought it was a pretty big deal that we were planning on going 2 days this year!
    Very disappointing Coachella! Shame on you! I hope you find a way to resolve this!

    ?

    I am confused. What opinion has been swayed? Personaly, I love the line up this year. And I don't doubt others, not on this board, feel the same. I have never been negative about this line up once! The only thing I am bummed about is its looking more and more likely Madness aren't going to be there...
    I just thought this year tickets were going to sell more slowly. I thought it was likely still going to sell out, just nowhere near as fast. I was expecting like a week or two before the festival.
    So by Paul T saying its the second fastest selling Coachella, I assuming he is meaning that tickets are selling almost as fast at they did last year. And that surprised me. No opinion has been swayed.
    Also, isn't it still possible they release some more single day tickets after the days had officialy been reorganized? If single day tickets are in fact "sold out" Im betting it is because they released less single day tickets this year.
    I just hope they release more, because my girlfriends parents wanted to go for just Saturday. Her dad is quite possibly the biggest Kraftwerk fan in the entire world.

    I can see how Roger Waters might sell out a single day, but I don't think Jack Johnson would sell out a day. As much as a love Portishead, they aren't a huge name with in the mainstream, as oppossed to RHCP.

    There are a lot of great smaller acts, but it's the headliners that cause a ticket frenzy like Rage Against the Machine. I just don't see how that's the case this year.

    Coachella has reached the point where they've gained such a steady fan base over the years that it will sell out almost no matter what.

    I'm really bummed on the whole thing, the funny thing is people are so upset with the line-up, everybody says it sucks, but not me! I was stoked about the line up and so jazzed for Coachella 2008! Now I am close to being over it, all because I have been pulling my hair out all weekend wondering, "I don't want to stray too far from my computer, because tickets might be released". It's like some sort of mental game the coachella folks are playing, and I don't like it.
    They need to make a statement! Say something, anything. They made such a big deal about the announcement, and how tickets were going on sale, etc, and then...nothing. I know they are all standing by, working up something, or trying some new sales tactic, but I think it is wrong. If there are still 3 day passes available, they need to break em down and make single tickets available. If I had 300 bucks I'd buy the 3 day pass and just stay home on Sunday and recoop before going back to work on Monday. But I don't!

    and a growing international fan base, makes it hard when you are competing with rest of the world for tickets.. wonder how long 3 day passes will last. They were the first to sell last year unless they were second after sunday single day...not sure. Must have sold a lot of tickets if they are worried about keeping crowd levels same as last year

    Saturday and Sunday single days sold out first last year during the first weekend it went on sale. 3 day passes took 20 days(give or take) to sell out. Camping sold out a couple days after that.

    Yes, when you buy a 3 day pass they give you 3 separate tickets, one for each day. So, if you are using only one ticket, you can sell the other ones.

    Yeah, you're right. Hopefully they realize to keep that fan base they need to keep the fans happy, i.e. big names as well as smaller acts.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to this year. A few additions would be nice though.

    Dude you have been in touch with me and my friend, if that's the case, we might want to consider it. I just figured the three day pass thing would blow up on people, like the ticket would be one ticket or a wrist band or something.
    Does anyone know who bought three day passes what they look like, maybe if you have printed them out, is it one print out with all three days on it, or is it three seperate tix?

    This convinces me that Coachella ticket selling post-Ticketmaster is going to reach an unprecedented high in 2008.

    Especially after Tollett's "tricks" get pulled out of his "sleeves"
