    Default Won't sell out unless

    They add like a Mcartney or a rage type name. It's a great lineup, but unfortunately no ringer---yet.

    Ahhh, you see, rokky, it has more of a chance to sellout than the past few years and this is why: Jay-Z, Muse and Gorillaz. Jay-Z and Muse each have massive mainstream crossover appeal and Gorillaz gain the interest of the more discerning music fan. Combined with a loaded second to fourth line, a slew of gems in the small print and you've got a recipe for a sell out.

    if anything, i think this year's lineup has potential to sell out all 3 days as well. usually 1 or 2 days sell out, but i really think all 3 days will sell out this time around. which reminds me, i should get my tickets soon.

    and please, no more rage. get over it.

    Well, it's kind of all or none at this point, isn't it?

    Would you like to bet? I bet I can purchase a full three day pass sometime around the end of March no problem. And I fully intend to do this.

    I have been to coachella the past three years in a row. But sorry ladies and gentlemen, this coachella lineup is one of the worst i have seen yet. Daft punk, cillis 07 awesome! Justice, prince, pink floyd, amazing 08, steve aoki, beetroots, mstrkrft the sh##. But this year isn't looking promising at all. i am a huge fan of jay-z and own everyone of his cd's. But he's not for coachella!! This year wont sell out. personally, i think i'll only be going sunday if even that.

    the fact that you praise steve aoki, beetroots and mstrkrft explains everything.

    you do realize that justice is going to be there right? they are on the poster if you know where to look.

    I realize that xavier of justice will be there. That doesn't equal Justice. Thats one part. Yes, i would be looking forward to club 75 hence my statement of possibly going Sunday. However, my point is that this years lineup is not good at all. it has more of a mainstream feel this year. which coachella shouldn't be.

    People really hate bands just because a lot of other people like them? This is silly to me.

    how is this lineup at all maainstream. the top is, but the average radio listener would probably only know about 8 of those artists if the lineup was read to them

    Yeah the top of the lineup kind of has to be mainstream, that's how tickets are sold.

    Should we point out that it is impossible to buy single day tickets this year? One day will not sell out more than the other.

    I like how you act like you really know anything about the marketplace. MASSIVE mainstream crossover appeal. Such an asshole.

    Thumbs down Re: Won't sell out unless

    This coachella officially sucks. 3 day pass for people i don't want to see is absurd. another factor this year is the economy. they leave us with no choice other than to purchase 3 day passes. Thats expensive and not worth it. worst coachella ive seen in years. its downhill form here. hopefully with the surplus of tickets this year they will get the picture. Keep coachella the way its meant to be. Not just to turn a profit but for the true music enthusiast.

    Last year they expected a drop in sales because of the economy (according to LA Times) and they were happily surprised by the 160,000 attendees that showed up. I think this year they realized that Coachella still does well in a poor economic climate and have decided to try and sell 3 day passes only. Keep in mind they never said that single days aren't going on sale. They said that if 3 days don't sell out, they will sell single days at the gate. However if you don't like the lineup (you are in the minority) then just don't go.

    Edit: Also, you are saying that with 3 day passes only they just trying to turn a profit, yet you think there will be a large surplus of tickets???

    No, they just want to keep assholes like you out. It looks like it's going to work by the reaction.

    good point. however last year the lineup was better. and this year i still havent ruled out sunday. after conducting my own personal survey i found that alot of my associates wont be attending. i guess if you want to go simply for the atmosphere thats fine but the lineup has definitely been greater in the past and needs improvement this year. yes the turnout was good last year but the economy was also better. its sad when a resident of CA doesn't want to go to coachella. that has to tell you something. im about an hour away in sunny san diego but right now the drive isnt worth it.
