    I'm more interested in her third nipple, rather than a lazy eye.

    It's a music FESTIVAL. If you want to see 3 bands, go see those 3 bands somewhere else.

    Try not to be such a whiny little ****** and research the lineup a bit. You'll probably find there's stuff you like on all three days. That's what the fest is all about.

    This is why many of us are loving this change. Prince, Madonna, Rage...they all threw off the balance. You get too many people in who are just parked in front of the stage not having fun, or they don't even show up until late in the evening. I'd rather have 50,000 people who want to have fun and ditch the other 10,000. And GV is clearly not worried about the financial implications. (OK, they are probably a little worried, but they wouldn't have done it unless they thought it was a good idea.)

    What's good for the festival is good for business in the long run, and this is very good for the festival.

    How are they money hungry?

    What they want is for 60,000 people to come each day and have a good time. How do they make any more money by only selling 3 days? The total maximum amount they can make is the same.

    Let's say they ONLY sold single day tickets. And they book someone like Paul Mcartney again. And 50,000 baby boomers snatch up tickets for that day, and it sells out, while there is only 10,000 sold for the other 2 days. As someone who wants to enjoy the festival, I might not want to come if I can't go one of the 3 days, so maybe I don't go at all. Meanwhile, you get an empty festival that day because those baby boomers don't show up until 9pm.

    They just want to sell the tickets. But if they have a choice between selling one to me or to the McCartney obsessive, they'll pick me.

    If anything, they stand to lose a little money from people like you. If not...if they sell out of 3 days, then they haven't made any more money than they normally would have.

    Hahha I love how people get obsessed with "FAT CATS" like the monopoly guy is GV and he sleeps on a bed of money. It is so easy to demonize a faceless corporation with little or no facts.

    I know that you can't tell me how many hours people worked to put this together. You can't tell me how much profit was made last year and who received that profit and the work they did to earn it. You don't even know if there reasons have anything to do with being greedy or if there are other reasons behind it.

    All I head is waa waa I want it my way even though I do nothing to put the festival on.

    It's not like they raised prices. If someone can't afford to go every day, than they will LOSE that customer. If they CAN afford it, than they are going to be a better quality customer than 3 separate ones who don't care about the festival. But the amount of money for tickets is the same.

    Of course, a 3 dayer probably spends more on other things. But even if you believe this concept that they are "money grubbing" somehow...yes! They are a for profit company. If the recession is hurting them (not that it did last year from what I've read), then they need to change the way they do business or risk dying.

    I just hate the idea that they somehow OWE each individual something just because times are hard. Last year, I was in an economic mess, and I didn't get to go. I didn't blame it on GoldenVoice for refusing to give me a free pass.

    In 2007 I only wanted to go in Sunday, maybe Saturday. Guess what happened single says sold out immediately. So I bite the bullet and got a 3 day pass even though I thought there was no one I wanted to see on Friday. It ended up that one of my favorite performances of the weekend happened that night, Gogol Bordello. It was that moment that I knew I would be back at every Coachella.

    If had been able to get just a single day ticket then I would have missed 2008 because the lineup didn't wow me at first, that has become my favorite year with Portishead's show topping my list of best concerts. I have a lot of good friends that I meet for the first time in 2008 as well. So just go all three days you will find something great to see that you never would have otherwise.

    lol GV isn't trying to get a "better" quality customer....

    it all boils down to money, not some altruistic Kumbaya poppycock.

    that, and this is a big FU to scalpers/resellers.

    Unhappy Re: Single day tickets??

    So bummed, this would have been the first time my boyfriend and I were able to make it to Coachella for 2 of the 3 days. Since we are not able to but 2 single days (friday/sat) we will not be able to go. I am unemployed and cant afford to go, but I was going to stretch my $ for the 2 days, now that I have to buy a 3day pass that I wont fully use I just cant justify it anymore......So bummed

    The cost of two single day passes (at last years rates) are only about $50 off what this years three day passes cost (including fee's)

    food for thought.

    A question: What are the ticket policies other festivals? My guess is that Bonnaroo is definitely all three days; don't know about Lolla...
