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

    Single-day Coachella fest tickets sold out

    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, said individual tickets for the three-day event - slated for April 25-27 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio - were cut off at 6 p.m. Saturday.

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

    He added, however, that "last year was kind of crazy" with headliners like Rage Against the Machine and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. This year's headliners include Jack Johnson, Portishead and Roger Waters.

    Tollett, who pioneered regional music festivals with 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 60,000 people per a day.

    "We gave people a whole day to get single day tickets Friday and a half-day Saturday," Tollett said. "Now the three-day passes are available. They didn't (sell out) all at the same time. One sold out, then the other and then the third. Now all three are sold out."

    However, Tollett said anything could happen between now and the festival's kick-off.

    "I want people to have a good time," Tollett said. We have 90 days still to ensure that it's super memorable.

    It seems really unbelievable to me that this year's tickets sold more quickly than 2004 or 2005.

    I also don't understand how these two statements can both be true.

    They can't.

    As a journalism student I think these are weak quotes. He uses the qualifier "think". That covers his ass in the event that he’s BSing us and someone finds the actual numbers indicate this year was the second slowest selling year ever. Courtney also pointed out that his statements don't totally match up. How can you cut off single day ticket sales if they were already sold out earlier in the day?

    Maybe I'm just too cynical but I have a hard time believing this. His job is to create a buzz and promote the concert. Nothing gets more attention than a crowd which is this case is announcing how quickly your tickets are selling.

    If you remember correctly, tickets for both those years didnt sell out until much closer to the date of the event. Yes even the mighty Radiohead year took a while to sell out. It just seems crazy because it was the first to do so in advance.

    idrive1life already quoted this in another thread. i still say it's complete bullshit, and tollett is really playing people for idiots saying something like that.


    i'm not exactly sure what you're saying psychic friend.....are you SUPPORTING tollett's statement, backing it up? or what?


    there's no way in hell the single day tickets sold out that fast unless they were EXTREMELY limited this year....in which case they should have just sold 3 day passes instead. why sell a tiny amount of single day passes, switch the acts on the fucking lineup around, and then come out and say it was the second fastest selling coachella???? that's so stupid.

    Perhaps you should just stop caring so much and accept that the tickets are selling really well.

    It's pretty simple guys. Either believe GV's BS and buy the 3 day pass. Or do like myself and tell GV to go fuck themselves by not going to Coachella. Or if you decide you want to go last minute, then just go... you will find plenty of tickets outside of the festival for a good price. They also always have tickets at the gate without the ticketmaster fees. They even had tickets at the gate for Radiohead.

    right, just go into the thread where people were keeping track of the GA numbers on the tickets. It clearly shows that the tickets were selling well.

    per a day? That just makes my brain hurt. Why can't it be PER DAY or A DAY?

    ...and if anyone is counting, (which I'm sure someone is) I just bought our camping tix and they were GA67 and GA68.

    there really is only one loser in that equation. hi, loser!

    if it sells out then you need to take a good long look in the mirror and repeat that "fuck you" with gusto.

    Last year camping tix sold out at GA30 on Feb 13th.
    Which leads me to the inevitable conclusion that GV has installed multi-level,"tenement" style camping this year to sell double or triple the tickets.I hope you don't have noisy upstairs neighbors!

    I think that they actually DID sell those tickets quickly...

    Either way, I'm going to wager that some of the single day tickets will be held down till a bit closer to the festival. Have a little hope, in that respect.

    the faster the tickets sell out the better, if you want to go, buy some tickets before the unholy scalpers do
