    Default A new way to purchase 3 day passes

    KCRW is having a subscription drive this week and I have heard them offer two 3 day passes to Coachella as a premium. The only thing is, you have to listen until they offer it. I have heard it mostly during Jason Bentley and Raul Campos.

    You get two 3 day passes for $550. There are no other fees because it's a donation.

    If you got two 3 day passes at Fingerprints or the glass house it would be around $570 plus you wont have to drive to get them.

    If you buy them through Ticketmaster it is around $638 for two 3 day passes.

    Just a thought and you would be supporting KCRW and you would get a fringe benefits card that gives you a year of discounts to select retailers and you would be able to win tickets to their contests that they have over the radio and online throughout the year.

    Just a thought.

    /\ Excellent post.

    kexp up in Seattle give out neat gifts for donations too; I usually get a tee shirt for mine and I get a small tax write off too.

    You can only use as a tax deduction the portion of donation beyond the value of any goods or services received as a thank you.

    Just threw in my support for Mr. Nick Harcourt and The Morning Becomes Eclectic show on KCRW and donated $550 for my 2 Coachella 3 day's.

    They will have more throughout the day, everybody should buy their passes this way!

    Indio here I come!!!

    Unfortunately (unless KCRW has changed their policies recently) they are not allowed to give you certain premiums until they are announced on air. I know because I have answered phones during a couple of the KCRW subscription drives. You just need to listen to the radio until you hear it announced and then call in immediately before it gets snatched up by another caller.

    I just called KCRW and apparently all the Coachella passes are gone. So it looks like the Glass House is the only way to get around the ticketbastard charge.
