    No, there (sic) not.

    The artist line up for Coachella Music Festival 2009 includes great names such as Prince, Jack Johnson, Kraftwerk, Death Cab for Cutie, Fatboy Slim.

    See what you're doing Coachella? People are so tense since the line up isnt out and they're taking it out on each other. Please give us the line up already!

    And if they are they deserve to be getting ripped off. It's scandalous, but what can you do? Welcome to preemptive scalping.

    No shit, Sherlock. You make it sound like South Florida isn't part of the US and this sort of shit is new - which part of scapling tickets remains such a mystery that this is surprising?

    That probably sounds dickish and that's not my intent, but it's just pretty basic. These fuckers will know that they'll get tickets and are just playing the game.

    If you chose to read into it, and I am not, but you could be of the opinion that these scumbags have inside knowledge and know that it will be a sell-out, hence the early advertising. And by inside knowledge, I don't mean that they necessarily have specific details, just whether the line-up is particularly strong, medium etc. As I said, that's one possible way to interpret things, but I wouldn't give them that much credit.

    What it boils down to is that there will always be a market...

    I wasn't suggesting you'd said anything about South Florida - simply that you were blurting this out like it's a fucking revelation, and that perhaps Miami is so far behind the rest of the country that scalpers don't exist there.

    Yes, it's fucked up, genius. What's next - are you going to tell us that someone shot Kennedy and that the Earth really isn't flat after all? You're stating the obvious.

    I look forward to the grammar police pointing out that it should be, "South Florida, you mongol".

    you're a fucking cock-gobbler...why does where i live always come in to play? like that has anything to do with anything? Miami sure is far behind the rest of the country...right...and so what if Im stating the obvious? its a message board and I can state whatever I want...

    for instance, I can state that you are an anal-dwelling battieboy...

    and you are a fudge poking, salami stroking, bottom gay fairy...

    how about that grammar?

    Oh, dear...really? Is that all you can come up with? That's a lot of homophobe for one person to carry around, unless you just have a chip on your shoulder about something.

    Then again, what a surprise….a lack of intellect manifesting itself through belligerence.

    cmon...dont give me that shit about homophobia and masculinity issues...thats what your mom told you to say all those yeas in high school when kids made fun of you...im just having some stupid fun...

    its not cool to come on a message board and act like your smart by using words phrases like "a lack of intellect manifesting itself through belligerence"...go write a thesis or something...

    the only chip I have on my shoulder is that I posted this grimey website and you jumped on it like I did something so wrong...

    and the other chip I have is that I dont know he lineup...

    what everyone is trying to tell you in a not-so-nice way, elpolloloco, is that THAT WEBSITE ISN'T ACTUALLY SELLING TICKETS FOR ANYTHING, YOU DUMB FUCK.

    Is it the thought of all of this testosterone you think you smell that's making you feel better, in a warm and fuzzy way?

    They must love you around South Beach....

    Agreed - I don't know this for sure, but I suspect that a lot of the time they don't actually even have the tickets in hand - they simply have access to them when they want them (from since mysterious black market pool). In the past, I have spoken to a couple of 'brokers' (with no real intent to buy), and they always said that they would need to check will call back. Invariably, they did call back, having looked into it. Granted that was a few years ago and before the internet really took a strong hold on how tickets were bought and sold, but scaplers are scaplers and their MO doesn't really change...whether it's by phone, via the internet, or outside a venue.

    Well, if you're so sure they're selling tix, then send 'em your fuckin' money. See what happens. Are you starting to understand why this is retarded?

    crazy spanish chicken, sick baby, shut the fuck up.


    the original point is valid: someone already selling either the promise of/coachella tickets at above face value is a morally abject practice, to say the very least.

    the original response is valid: anyone dumb enough to hand their money over to these people deserves to get ripped off, and this certainly isn't anything new (pre-emptive scalping, I mean)

    my point:
    pollo, if you're THAT pissed, just phish the bastards. set them up. or look up their IP, find out where they are, find out if the local laws permit scalping, and call their local PD. or send an e-mail to goldenvoice. but what in the eternally flying fuck do you want, or god forbid expect any of us to do about it? everyone else, with obvious exceptions, just chill out and stop being so immature. this is a message board about a beautiful music festival. not the lobby for halo.

    what if stubhub bought them all already and we all have to pay the 500 for 3 day tickets.

    what if.. stubhub is known to do that shit.

    meaning, did GV already sell them tickets??
