    Life is full of compomises. This year parking and camping next to your packed up vehicle. Awesome! In and Outs. Awesome! The fact that being there for 3 days you might discover a new band you like. Incredible!

    Ummm also this


    Will there be tickets sold at the event?
    If the festival doesn't sell out in advance, then tickets will be available at the box office on the show dates.

    I dont think its selling out but who knows.

    that, and this is a big FU to scalpers/resellers.
    Wanting "better" customers is about money. By Sunday attendees'll be more used to the festival than folks that'd just be showing up for that one day would. They're easier to deal with and thus cheaper to deal with.

    And, really, "better" in this instance doesn't necessarily mean better music taste or better acting or whatn't. It means more interested in the festival and thus more interested in spending money in and around the festival.


    The scalpers/resellers thing is a good point, though. The pass is less fluid than individual tickets and, as they say in the FAQ, if it doesn't sell out they can sell single days at the door (or they could choose to do so the week before or whatever.)

    Though, really, if they were that money grubbing of a corporation, if they were that unconcerned with customer good will... they could've raised prices. Which didn't happen.

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.
    Well said. The in's and out's are a change for the better too.

    It's not a double loss, it's just a loss for you. That space will be sold to someone else who CAN afford to go all three days.


    Or at least that's the idea.

    If it's obvious the festival isn't going to sell out on 3-day passes I'd anticipate single day tickets being put on sale before the festival. Just a guess though.

    but you can't really compare bonnaroo/coachella to lollapalooza

    lolla makes the ticket prices a lot lower (about 100$ lower id say) by having ridiculous amounts of advertising. plus, coachella and bonnaroo are experiences, lollapalooza isn't really.


    (i say this having gone to lolla twice and coachella once)

    Exclamation Re: Single day tickets??

    if you are interested in purchasing single day tickets email info@coachella.com and let them know. maybe if enough people email them they will put single day tickets for sale. at least it can't hurt, my friends and i have already done it.

    Sent an email to info@coachella.com regarding single day tickets and the auto-reply wrote: "This year we are ONLY selling festival passes. A festival pass is good for any/all 3 days." So, you have to buy a 3 day festival pass even if you just want to go 1 day or 2 days.

    if you can't find any artist to watch on a particular day then it doesn't seem like you're really into music enough to enjoy a festival. There are 40 artists I'd like to see this year and hopefully I'll get to see half of them. Either way Coachella is always the best weekend of the year, I get to run around in my underwear, take drugs if I feel like it and see some of the artists I've been listening to all year, can't wait! Toteschella!

    sometimes its not about if you can appreciate the music, because i can, but sometimes its really a money problem. i always go all three days, but this year my wallet is very very thin.
    im sure ill get in somehow, i just wish they hadnt done this.

    Whatever. My whole family, brothers, cousins, uncle..have piled in the van and gone every year for 6 years. Now we can't afford it.
    So you all enjoy the new "better" crowd of hipsters with their flower headbands and trendy $50 dollar vintage t-shirts. I cannot even believe there are people on this thread defending Coachella's choice to do this. It's greedy. Pure and simple.

    My wife and I have been to every Coachella. We stopped caring who was on the lineup years ago. Coachella is about the full experience and we have never been disappointed.

    So people who can afford a three day pass are hipsters, what rubbish. I make minimum wage and just have to lockdown for months and scrape every dime together.
