Thread: Presale?

    Default Presale?

    Anyone know if there is going to be a presale this year? I seem to recall that there was one last year about a week before the lineup was announced. I don't think it was super cheap, but $25-30 off a 3-day pass or so.

    I sure hope there is one this year. If i remember correctly, there wasn't a pre-sale in 08, but there was a pre-sale for 07.

    Maybe they won't do it this year 'cause of the layaway thing?

    You probably know as much as anyone on this board that has been here since last May.

    dude, I don't think there has been a presale for coachella with that much off of a 3 day pass.

    There indeed have been presales in the past with more than 25-30 off, closer to $60-$70 off. Last year there was not a presale put on by goldenvoice with that much off but there was a ticketmaster presale that was $20 cheaper at most from what I recall after taxes and fees and such. It was better than nothing though.

    There was a presale in 08, it was AFTER the lineup was announced, when in previous years the presale was BEFORE the lineup was announced.

    Might tickets be for sale on LiveNation instead of Ticketmaster? Given that GV is part of LiveNation this would make sense. Maybe we might see a few dollars of savings if we lose Ticketmasters' 'convience charges' and 'processing fee's'-not forgetting the wonderful $2.50 charge for printing your ticket at home.

    Right because Ticketmaster is the only ticketing company that charges a service fee, the rest work for free.

    Also, live nation uses ticketmaster.

    Not anymore. LN set up its own ticketing service. If it is not completely independent, it will be very soon.

    Didn't the Cablevison/Ticketmaster talks to buy AEG Live break down? Did the deal ever even go through?

    presale before the lineup please. I've got the money set aside and I'm ready, and just like everyone else who cares enough about the festival to deserve discounted tickets, I'm going regardless of the lineup. I know for a fact I'll only know half the names at MOST, and I'll spend half a week in one of the most beautiful spots on earth, listening to hand-picked music, first rate DJs, and looking at fantastic art.

    Agreed completely. Only the real Coachella fans will buy tickets BEFORE they even see a line-up, and even less will camp! Let's get a PRE-lineup-SALE!

    yes freaking please. you know what I'd go for? a presale deal that only true coachella fans would want:
    before the lineup is released, you pay full price for a 3 day pass, and get your camping pass free!

    Coachella die hard fans getting less and less. ticket prices high, other festivals with better line-ups and cheaper.Plus Gv wants east and west and seem gave east better line-up

    But hey just my opinion.

    Yeah. I hate it when they buy another venue and the beautiful, helpful website goes away and I have to deal with the LiveNation website. *cough*Wiltern*cough*

    I like GoldenVoice.

    Agreed. The presale with actual discount BEFORE lineup was cool. If I'm going I am going. When they first announce the lineup it's not the full lineup anyway.
