    I, personally, would be happy if you just stay the fuck away from my festival. You sir, are not welcome here. Now go cut your ethernet cable and go cry to someone that cares. Because, honestly, we really don't.

    I am looking forward to another 'dead' Coachella. An easy drive and parking due to a lack of people. Nothing better than my own private music festival where all the bands are performing to me! All the bathrooms should be clean and spotless because it is so poorly attended. I don't know how GV do it year in year out, pay all this money out in this economy to lose money by not selling tickets.

    Should be a blast! Please stay away JoinMyRant, don't ruin my dead-a-Coachella.

    You personally would probably get off on a lot of simple things, i.e. attacking me on a forum. Let it be, this thread and it's message do not concern you. It's for the promoters when it comes down to crunch time. I am welcome wherever the fuck I please, and so is whatever I have to say, Dick.

    And what happens next year, if this year is dead all 3 days, instead of just 1?

    the funny part is when it is all said and done you will tuck your tail between your legs, open a new alias to pretend like it didnt happen.

    Plus if it is dead again this year, maybe they will go back to the drawing board and re-think their policy...until that happens try holding your breath

    When it comes to the issue of single day tickets not being sold this year, there is pretty much a zero tolerance for bitching about it on this board

    You fucking foreigners are so smug and stupid. If you'd even bothered to read the FAQ (something all fools should read), you'd realize that the answer has been spelled out for you. Maybe if you took the time to take your head out of your ass, you'd see how easy it is to find answers around here (without looking like so much of a jackass I might add. I say "so much" because since you're apparently foreign, you're already somewhat of a jackass).

    To goldenvoice: are you 50% sold out yet? No? Didn't think so. Good luck with that.
    I think they are my friend. They don't need your rant or Friday ticket to make or break them this year.

    Good luck with your protest.

If it was really that percentage, they wouldn't care about the 20% of leftovers.
    You obviously have no idea what you are talking about.

    Go away lurker. Start up that 3-day pass protest website you've been creaming yourself over every night.

    The rest of us, will have some fun.

    Having been to every Coachella except for one, I'd say the only time it was dead in the past was in 1999. Even then "dead" isn't the right word, because 25,000 is 25,000. Once 2002 came along it HAS NEVER BEEN DEAD attendance wise. This year will be no different.

    Only someone who hasn't actually gone would claim Coachella hasn't sold well since say, 1999/2001

    O.K. Here goes. The rationale Goldenvoice gives for not selling single day tickets (I know, this has been played out) is that single-day ticket holders clog up the hotels. What about those of us who live in close enough proximity to drive there and turn around and go home? Isn't living in the I.E. punishment enough? I guess my question is, how do I not feel cornholed by this decision when my single day situation would already require the monetary sacrifice everyone seems to assume I should make for the three day pass?

    the palm springs desert sun newspaper quotes coachella's promoter as saying saturday and sunday tickets will likely be pro-rated. would you go to saturday (only) if it cost $200? if this is true, the people who just want to go sunday are essentially getting single day price for their wristband.

    BTW, Stickjohn and all of you other haters. These posts are not intended to satisfy our need to communicate with you. Lacking any other outlet than this, it is hoped that by reading the posts here Goldenvoice reconsider its choice of people to alienate next time.

    The incessant crybaby whining and self righteousness will surely let them know that they have alienated the correct group of people.

    You know what? F you guys. This was just a Sunday afternoon wank for me. Enjoy your music festival. Just don't be fooled: This is a way to get more money. It has nothing to do with hotel room availability. God bless them, if it works for them. They are not a charity, for crissakes. I just enjoyed going for a day. I spent a little money and took up about 4 square feet of lawn space. Why the hell you think people are encroaching on your "experience" is beyond me. By the way, ask your mom to turn up the heat in the basement; you must be cold.

    Most major festivals don't offer single day tickets, this was a long time coming. I think it only adds to the experience to have people there the entire weekend instead of just one day.

    Finally, a person who expresses his opinion without being a dick. I hope your experience is a good one.

    You're right - they are getting a lot more money out of me by charging the exact same price I paid for the exact same product in years past. Thank you for showing me the error of my ways.

    You seem to misunderstand. The "more money" reference concerns those who formerly attended via the one-day ticket option. Those folks, you see, would be paying three times the amount. Hence, "more money". Seriously, 3600+ posts? I'll be leaving you now. Enjoy your 3-day music extravaganza.

    actually if it was a way to get more money then they would sell all tickets individually. Because you know, single day tickets are higher priced and the average daily price of a three day pass. So this greed argument doesnt wash.

    If theywere truly greedy it would be a 298 three day and daily individual pass as the $99.

    so the greed argument is out.

    Yes, 3600 posts in 14 months...a whopping average of about 8 posts a day. I obviously have no life.

    Who cares what the reason behind the decision was. The promoters need to do a lot more promoting and a lot less reasoning. Raise your hand if your first Coachella experience was a single day. Now raise your other hand if that single day alone got you hooked. I had 15-20 people ready for their first experience after showing them the Saturday lineup. That was my mistake for assuming this year would be like every other year.
