Thread: single day tickets at the door?

  1. #1

    Question single day tickets at the door?

    What are the chances of single day tickets being available at the kiosk the day of the show? I haven't bought a 3 day pass yet and I only have $250 as of right now. I know a lot of people going already, so my plan so far is to have them call me on friday to let me know whether or not single day tickets are being sold at the festival. I know this is risky so what do you all think about my plan? Has there ever been a time where they sold only 3 day passes before the show, and then depending on sales, they'd have single day passes available the day of? Any other advice you guys have that could help me?

    If its a sell out your SOL. If single days are available you better be there at noon each day to get one cause they'll go fast. I don't even wanna guess what the line for them is gonna look like.

    There will be no line for single day passes. It's not gonna happen. No chance. $250 is very close why don't you just try and shoot for a 3day pass?

    IF there are tickets available at the gate I think they are pro-rated, meaning buying a ticket on Friday is same as buying a full-price 3 day pass.

    this has been confirmed elsewhere by our good psychic friend. and with rumors of a sellout, that's a big IF.

    I know there are rumors of a sell out, but aren't there always? Has it ever sold out all three days? Also, in past years, even when a day was a sell out, there was still a small number of tickets available at the gate. This doesn't mean they'll hold on to any if it sells out this year though. Also, the whole prorated thing sounds like it's for sure.

    Already covered many times...* Tickets can be purchased at the box office for cash, Visa / Mastercard, only on the days of the event and only if tickets are still available (from 3-day pass allotment). So for Friday it will still be a 3-day ticket.

    In the shitters right next to the Sahara. Make sure you knock first.

    i seem to have misled you. they wont have daily passes, but i remember the box offices being where i said, so if they dont sell out you can buy 3 day passes there.
    Unless i misunderstood the hate... maybe they werent there last year??
    to be clear i dont think they will be selling 1 day passes at all.
