    Default Music Festival Cuts off Tickets Sales

    Check out this article from the local Desert Sun (I searched and didn't see that it had been posted...so, yeah):

    Music festival cuts off ticket sales
    Three-day passes available, but weekend is packed already

    The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has cut off ticket sales for its Saturday and Sunday dates at the Empire Polo Club.

    But the promoters aren’t saying tickets for April 28 and 29 are “officially sold out.” Many three-day passes are available, and some daily tickets could be made available at the door at show time.

    “This is really a way of ensuring that everyone who wants to come for all three days is able to purchase a three-day pass,” said publicist Marcee Rondan.

    Tickets for the Saturday date, headlined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Sunday, with the reunited Rage Against the Machine topping the bill, were cut off late Sunday night, Rondan said. There were earlier reports of tickets not being available on Ticketmaster.com.

    Friday single-day tickets are still available.

    Ticket numbers still were being tallied Monday, but Rondon said promoters expect to keep attendance similar to last year’s record of 60,000 people a day.

    Three-day tickets are $249, plus charity and service fees. Single-day tickets are $85 or $90 at the door.

    Tickets have been sold at the door after they’ve been declared sold out at past Coachellas.

    But Rondon said, “It’s always once everyone is out there figuring out how crowded it is. (Then) you can evaluate, can more people be accommodated? So people should stay tuned a little closer to show date.”"

    Sold Out?
    Upcoming: 04/11/14-04/13/14 - Coachella Weekend One; 04/18/14-04/20/14 - Coachella Weekend Two; 08/19/14 - NIN/Soundgarden (Isleta Amphitheater - Albuquerque, NM)

    this seems like an all around good thing, to me. more bands AND more elbow room. the three days passes are really worth it because there's so much good stuff to see.
