Thread: How quickly will this sell out?

    Default How quickly will this sell out?

    Sort of weak headliners aside, I give this lineup an unequivocal 10. It is insane. Saturday makes me want to cry already. I want to see literally everything on that day.

    Thinking about it over coffee, as I am wont to do, I don't necessarily think it is a coincidence that both the headliners and the highest billed Sahara acts are a step down in profile from last year, though, while the overall lineup is deeper. The reaction from people who maybe came for Guetta and Snoop and the party on my Facebook has been overwhelmingly negative. Not just like, "this is a lame lineup and I'm upset" but more like, "there is a 0% chance I will go to this, I'm selling my ticket as we speak".

    Can this sell out two weekends? I think it can, from the brand alone. But how quickly? And instead of scalping, are we going to see a lot of people sell their pre-sale tickets this year?

    if you want to sell, i'd suggest doing it now.

    obvz i think the 10-14k weekend 1 passes will sell out rather quickly, but i forsee a deep secondary market, with prices dipping below face not too long after the onsale.

    I agree. Which is sort of sad, because I like to see things I love be successful, but I am positive none of this was a coincidence.

    Dare I say it...the Sahara is safe again. I am so excited. I even feel like acts that would have drawn bro crowds this last year (Pretty Lights, Passion Pit) will have great crowds. This year is going to be the best.

    If you want to risk it, I feel like you'll be able to scalp a shuttle-less pass this year, maybe even at face. Johnny Bottle Service is not going to want to hang on to his pre-sale ticket. This crowd is going to be amazing.

    We'll know soon enough. I expect a first day sellout again. It's too much of a see and be seen party now, even without the big names. As a late 30s britpop fan whose attended the last 5 years and only seen one band in the Sahara (the Ting-Tings ftw), I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lineup. It would have been fantastic to get the Knife or Tom Waits, or see Nick Cave or New Order headline the final day, but beyond that I'm beyond excited.

    I will gladly buy your shuttle pass for $20.
