I even spelled it the British way.
I'm gonna try to get tickets for my friends and I. Can't wait to see MBV and Built to Spill.
there's apparently rumors of Aphex being added...w00t
So, how are you/we/the ones who plan to go going to do this?
getting a large room?
While you guys are having Stand By Me moments in your little dorm room and getting your faces fucked by this ATP lineup every night, I'll be hopelessly sitting in front of a laptop staring at this god forsaken message board. Congratulations, assholes.
I wonder if we'll be able to sneak people into the rooms. Anyway, according to the website, the first batch of tickets will be on sale this friday. So, there will be still a second one but with accommodations in a nearby hotel.
and looks like each one can buy his own ticket but only one person has to reserve the room?
You should work out ahead of time how many people you wish to buy tickets for and share accommodations with, then decide who is going to be the ticket buyer. You will be asked first how many festival passes you wish to buy. These cost $225 each and will gain you entrance into the three day festival including all performances, plus applicable booking fee.
You will then be asked whether you wish to purchase accommodations. If you choose yes, you will be asked which room you wish to purchase and how many people you intend on having sleep in it.
Please note that the person whose credit card is used to purchase the tickets will be required to be present at the site to collect the tickets in an effort to prevent scalping. If the person whose credit card is used cannot be present, a photocopy of the front and back of their card along with the email confirmation letter they received when purchasing the tickets will be required.
i sent them a message about babes in arms.... my going kind of hinges on it and they haven't replied.
I think I'm going regardless... I'll know for sure tonight. Me + friend will be going. And we'll be more than happy to share a big room with nice people.
wmgaretjax, orbit, bballarl or anyone else: let's figure this shit out. I'm willing to throw down on a 4 or 6 person room. Who is with me and how shall we coordinate Friday morn?
Maybe the best way to coordinate is have one person dedicated to getting the room (it's a prompt that comes up after you have already secured your ticket from what I can tell). And we can all report here right away on whether we got tickets so we can know what size of room to nab. I don't think we need to stress out too much on a room because there are several hotels in the area, and it's a small event. It would be really nice to get one of the on campus rooms.
Count me in also. One of my friends will try to buy 1 tix for me tomorrow. Just in case we need more (or if 2 of my friends finally decide to join me there later <- I doubt it/not likely), I will also ask him to try and book another 1 room for 3 persons (max I can afford right now). I wonder if thats allowed (i.e - invisible, - will you able to reserve a room for multiple people even if you are just buying 1 tix?).
*My tent is all set. Plane landed at PSP around 2 PM PT then I arrived at campsite > 4 PM. Weather is not too bad, maybe high in 80s. Tomorrow will suck.*

I'm not sure my finances can support this... So don't increase the size of any room on account of me. I might buy a ticket tomorrow on impulse, but I'm not sure right now. I might wait for the later ticket release which will hopefully take place with more of the lineup.

I'm going in for a 4 berth. Me + 1 + anyone else that wants in. The ticket derby should be interesting.
Got two tickets and a three person room. Seemed easy enough. Did everyone else get through who wanted to?
did anyone else get "You have been charged $0.00"
