Hey guys I was wondering if there's going to be single day tickets.
Sorry, but that's beyond stupid. Don't try to rationalize why you aren't going. If you can't afford it, can't take off work, etc. then so be it. But to blame it on being disrespected on the boards (or witnessing the disrespect) who gives a shit. The fact of the matter is you are extrapolating a miniscule sample to a very large population.
I've been going every year since 2001 and guess what: I have fun every year. I see bands I wouldn't normally see. And I chill with my friends. If you aren't interested in those things, don't go. But by voicing that because of a STUPID MESSAGE BOARD you are going to pass...I just don't get it.
northside groove...southside groove....eastside groove...westside groove
Wait till people start selling their 3 day passes for cheap and buy one. It's just like buying single days. I can only go Friday and Saturday so I'm already looking for 2 cheap 3 day passes and they're already on craigslist.

Let's break this down. You know, for fun.
Do you know how many idiots such as yourself come trolling through here asking the same ridiculous questions over and over? It would be one thing if the questions weren't something that was addressed in the FAQ or if the answer you got there was vague, but you know what? The FAQ does a good job of covering pretty much everything, so those who come here asking questions they already have the answers to are just retarded and not worth the time. At that point we move into ridicule mode because a) it's fun to get you people riled up, b) you most absolutely deserve it, and c) you will never learn otherwise.
This is the first year that the lineup is actually worth anything, so the arguments about having 10 years to 'try out' the festival are just dumb. It's simple, I've never been because there's never more than 3 or 4 bands total that are worth paying the high price to see. This year, there's about 7 in one day, and about 5 or 6 total from the other 2 days.
Ha. HA! Wow. I suppose those other years it completely sold out were just a fluke then huh? Never more than 3 or 4 bands total that you want to see? Guess what, this festival isn't for you. Get the fuck out of here.
I'd rather save my $300+ and see 15-20 other concerts free of this snotty, elitist, douchebaggery.
Gee, considering the average show price is now hovering around $20 (and this is before any ticket fees), 20 shows would cost you more than Coachella. Factor in gas and any sort of parking charges for all of those shows and you are well beyond Coachella in terms of cost.
Just because you go to an expensive music festival out in the middle of fucking nowhere to see a bunch of bands that sound the same for the most part and some shitty DJs, that doesn't make you better than anyone else.
They all sound the same huh? Please explain to me how Grizzly Bear, Sleigh Bells, Baroness, The Whitest Boy Alive, Fever Ray and Public Image Ltd. sound like each other. And that is just on Friday.
The best thing to do would be to delete your account and call it a day. This is not a festival that is catered to your needs and it seems pretty obvious that you have no interest in the music, which I have to be honest here, is fucking baffling.
This one's for you buddy:
As I now must get ready to go out for the evening, you will get the shorter albeit more direct version.
How dare Goldenvoice decide it is better for them to save the top label liquor and champagne for those high end hotties invited to the party rather than dealing with the headache of sending drinks to the dick tease party crasher unwilling to put out.
While they may have only been hoping for a blow job from you from the start, they soon realized you were likely to be a two lick dry tongue 2 minutes anyhow and that their time and efforts are better spent elsewhere.
But hey, you will sure show them by using your money to attend shows at their other venues!
Do you hear that Goldenvoice, save your Veuve and Patron and Portishead and Prince like tomfoolery for those silly persons known as your demographic, we one day types are not falling for your diabolical schemes!

This concert is going to sell out before the doors open. None of the arguments for single day tickets are going to be valid this year.
I'm a die hard Coachella fan (17 years old, attending with family for past 4 years). Although my family/friends are not able to go for all 3 days, I am. I can afford a 3 day pass/lodging/extras, & my parents are letting me go alone. HOWEVER, I won't go until single day tickets are made available. I'm doing this because I'm supporting my friends who can only go for 1 day and because I am INCREDIBLY disappointed in Paul Tollett and Goldenvoice for making this move.
my instincts are:
- single day tickets will probably go on sale at some point... not being able to split up 3 day passes + the current recession are among the numerous factors as to why Goldenvoice will be forced to do this
- there is NO way that this year's lineup will sell out of 3 day passes (even if another mega headliner gets added... I don't see it selling out)
p.s. Monklish and the rest of the message board cyber-gestapos need to fuck off. There is a special place in hell for those of you who are posting false information in an effort to stop spreading the joy that is Coachella.
Well, looks like you're not going then, kid.
Ticket sales are just fine, and the lineup is great as it always is. I wouldn't hold out hope for single day tickets.
and btw, you are one of the message board gestapos... Your posts have an authoritative tone purely because they are condescending. In all actuality, you don't know shit and you act like you do. You are hideous. Be productive. Read a book. Learn to knit. Make an effort to not be a pompous, self-richteous prick. k thnx
I've been attending since you were 9 years old. I think I have a handle on this whole "Coachella" thing.
YOU DO NOT HAVE A HANDLE ON THIS WHOLE COACHELLA THING AND YOU SHOULD STOP ACTING LIKE YOU DO.
Stop acting like you are a martyr for the single ticket system. Some people on this board do know things.

It really is the gift that keeps on giving.
Because we can afford 3 day passes.
And we recognize how unbelievably fucking stupid it would look to get all Symbolic Protest to show our support for those poor, unfortunate, downtrodden individuals that have been just crushed under the weight of these barbaric music festival ticketing practices.
Move the fuck over Haiti--sympathy's got a new name.
OH MY GOD THE ECONOMY
i have to say that i'm happy that single-day tickets aren't available. this ensures that the only people attending coachella are the ones who want to experience the festival in its entirety(the amazing music, the heat, spicy pie, etc.) and not the ones who come only for the day's headliner, maybe two or three other bands to boot. i had a rather frustrating experience last year with some people who came for paul mccartney. they were bitching to some guy behind them about him "crowding and pushing" them. really? it's an outdoor festival. it comes with the territory. i wanted to ask to see their tickets so i could help them find their proper seats(which obviously didn't exist). instead i decided to ignore them to the best of my ability. eventually, they pushed their way closer to the stage. those people brought nothing to the proverbially table when it came to enhancing the coachella experience. it'll be better off in the end.
LOL @ Die-hard coachella fan.
The diehards are ones that were going to festvals while you were discovering what a boner is.
If you think they are struggling to sell tickets then I have some beach property in Missouri to sell you.
"an effort to stop spreading the joy that is Coachella" is what people who don't go for all three days do. You don;t like not having the option of buying one day passes? Don't go.
I think another boarder said it best - I only want to see a couple of the acts, so I think I should be able to purchase a specific pass that allows me in the festival from 6pm-12 the first night. That's all I am interested in. Wait?!?! That's not an option? Crap, I'm boycotting!
I hope they never sell one-day passes again so it gets rid of the scorned little douchebags.
Just be glad you had the option to buy single days in the previous years. Things change, and this year, it is only 3 day passes. No need to get riled up. In the end, it is just a concert. Yes, a fucking amazing concert, but still a concert.
No master corporate plan, no elitist anything. It simply comes down to whether you can afford it or willing to pay and attend it. If not, then that is too bad. If you can, then have fun with us.
Seriously, all of these cries and mock 'boycotts' are absurd. You never hear people getting this riled up over important issues, but the second tuition fees go up or a festival sells 3 day tickets, the losers come full force online.
1. Buy a ticket.
2. Don't buy a ticket.
