    To goldenvoice: are you 50% sold out yet? No? Didn't think so. Good luck with that.
    1) the "you get your money's worth" argument keeps getting brought up for a reason, namely because you get your money's worth.

    2) what does living close have to do with attending coachella? if you bought a 1-day pass and lived far away the trek would be just as far whether you stayed for a night or the weekend.

    3) camping passes for the entire weekend are cheaper than you would pay to split the shittiest room in the valley and still get a bed.

    4) if you can't handle the heat, don't come out.

    5) the point of making people commit to the weekend is to weed out the casual retards that want to come see 1-2 bands, get wasted in the beer garden all day, and in general detract from the overall experience.

    6) what part about %80 of their ticket sales comes from 3-day passes did you miss? considering the lineup i don't see that figure dropping much, if at all.

    7) we get you're frustrated by it, but remember that for most of the people on here the lack of single day passes means nothing to us. coachella is staying exactly the same for the vast majority of its attendees. thats why you're not gonna find sympathy here

    I've known plenty of people that come out from other states and spend $100 on a one day ticket, and $130 for a hotel that night, and they get a great days worth of fun. Times that by 3 and they don't even think twice about not going, not in this economy.

    3) camping passes for the entire weekend are cheaper than you would pay to split the shittiest room in the valley and still get a bed.

    Woodstock, 110 degrees, showers are rare, so is actually sleeping.

    4) if you can't handle the heat, don't come out.

    Most people can handle it with a good nights sleep. Camping in it, is another animal. Coachella used to be convenient. Now it's made to be a pain, or expensive.

    Yeah, we get the point genius. I was there for the rage shows, and I get it. Who attracted that crowd though? Oh yeah... it was the lineup.

    6) what part about %80 of their ticket sales comes from 3-day passes did you miss? considering the lineup i don't see that figure dropping much, if at all.

    I saw that number and laughed. Certain days have been dead the past couple of years. I really doubt those numbers are anything but a marketing ploy. Anyways, even if those numbers were true, that doesn't mean they sold out 80% of their tickets, it means that they sold out 40% of their tickets and 80% of those were 3 day passes. If it was really that percentage, they wouldn't care about the 20% of leftovers.

    Since when do people come to message boards for sympathy. The point is to get the word out a bit, maybe goldenvoice will see it, who knows, but its a message board, not a help group. If the complaining really bothers you, ask the moderator to delete it, or ignore it yourself.

    You're brilliant as well eh? Board full of geniuses, how do you self made entrepreneurs have time to come up with this stuff? I'm quite amazed that you balance your busy social life, have time to spend all the money you make, and can still post a well thought out response here.

    Maybe a 3 day music festival is meant for people who have not been as affected by "the economy" or love the event enough to be able top plan ahead and save enough for it to not be an issue.

    Maybe if "the economy" has had such a disastrous effect on your life you shouldn't be thinking about attending such an event in the first place

    Maybe Goldenvoice is actually doing you a favor by keeping you from succumbing to this horrid beast know as "THE ECONOMY"

    Jerkoff, there you go being a jerkoff again. Did anyone blame the economy? Good job taking a verb and turning it into a reason though. You're quite the professor too I see.

    I dont recall Coachella ever being dead in the last 4 years. Its been pretty well attended. And you do get your moneys worth, but the thing is you value your money for other things, and people on here value their money for music and concerts so in their mind they do get their money's worth. And in mine too. Which turns to the fact that the people who will plop down $300 without a heartbeat just says they are the ideal customer the people of Coachella want.

    You can rationalize not going all you want you will still be wrong.

    I wouldn't expect YOU to recall it being dead. I'm telling you how it is. Friday last year, dead. I'm not rationalizing not going. You can rationalize the decision the go from selling single day ticket to not selling single day tickets all you want, but in the end you are wrong.

    Only an idiot that isn't resourceful or that lacks any common sense would say any of the past four years have been "dead".

    Go google "Coachella attendance" you moron.

    The thing about Coachella attendance is that the design of the festival tends to minimize or exaggerate the crowds depending on what's going on and where you are in relationship to it. How many articles mentioned how dead things were on Jack Johnson night in '08. Yet there was bedlam at the Sahara for Fatboy Slim (which, to be honest, would not have been that huge a draw if JJ wasn't on.

    Sometimes, there are particularly strong draws on most or all the stages...in this case, the crowds seem lower because you can walk around easily, and the people are spread out. If there are a few weaker acts on multiple stages, it can make the walkways see crowded as everyone eats at once, or everyone heads to the Main stage or Sahara by default.

    In any case, has the daily attendance ever dropped below 50,000 since the 3-day started? The last 5000 each day are the ones who cause problems, get wasted, or don't show up until after dark. Fuck 'em.

    How are you telling me like it is when I saw it with my own eyes. It was not dead at all. As a matter of fact it was a hell of a lot busier than I expected.

    You, my loser, are wrong. End of story. Nothing more to be said. Goodbye.

    It's funny how people get all defensive on forums over anything. Coachella is dumb and all of you are f's. Waaahhh cry the fuck more. You are all autistic.

    Shitty bands.

    It's even funnier how worked up you are getting. Thank you for your eloquent statement that Coachella is "dumb" and we are all "f's". Oh, not only are we dumb and gay, we're also autistic. And to add insult to injury: shitty bands.

    Coachella, lacking neurons and cognitive function, can't really be "dumb", can it? I mean, Coachella doesn't have any means of reasoning. No cerebral cortex means Coachella can't be dumb. So there.

    And f's? One thing I always turn down is an erect penis. I'm sure many (but not all) would feel the same.

    I would argue that while many here may show signs of Asperger-like traits, not sure how many would be considered truly autistic. But if there are any of you out there, let's go to Vegas and win us some money playing blackjack. "Ten minutes to Wapner!"
