Thread: Box Office

  1. #1

    Default Box Office

    3 weeks to coachella and the three-day passes haven't sold out yet. I know that means that they'll be selling tickets at the box office, but has anyone does this before? Do they end up selling out day-of-show? Is the B.O. line absolutely terrible? I'll be coming from San Diego and I just want to know if it's worth the drive, or if I probably won't get tickets.

    Thanks!

    its all really up in the air. If the tix sellout there probably wont be any box-office sales. If they dont there might be, but there is no guaranty of anything. The box-office line hasnt been too crazy from what I have witnessed, a good rule of thumb is to get there early like prior to 10 am.

    In 2006, if I'm not mistaken they said that tickets were sold out. I got pretty drunk on the beer garden on the campground, and well to make the story short I ended up loosing both my and my partner's tickets. I notice I had lost them until the next day when I woke up; I venture into the box office around 9 am and got tickets for the festival. So I guess that they reserve a certain amount of tickets for the box office but I don't really know how that works. You can try and get there early in the morning and find out.

    I've been to Coachella every year except the 1st year and 2006, and I have ALWAYS been able to buy tickets at the B.O. on the day of show. Even on days when they claimed it was sold out. What I found out last year, though, is that they still charge you for most of the fees, so there's really no benefit to waiting til the day of the show cost-wise. This year I purchased my tickets in advance--a first. I encourage you to do the same.

    Note: if you do decide to buy tix at the B.O., the ticket booths for sales are located past the Will Call booths. I say this because last year the Will Call lines were backed up and a lot of people wasted time standing in those lines who were there to buy tickets.

    Good luck.
