Thread: Coachella close to sell out per OC Register

  1. #1

    Default Coachella close to sell out per OC Register

    From an interview with Paul Tollett, although Paul didn't actually say it.

    http://soundcheck.freedomblogging.co...eat-one/22987/

    Besides, all the grumbling in the world hasn’t stopped three-day passes from virtually selling out a week in advance. At press time, very limited quantities remained.

    Awesome find! My favorite line --> “And that’s when it hit me: this is a huge show.” - Paul T

    Paul T always puts out a good interview before the festival to get us all excited and explain his reasoning for the decisions he makes. The transparency is great.

    great article, but why does every crowd picture have to a mega-douche front and center? that one dude thinks he's tiesto.

    wonder if the schedule really is done? i'm super worried about conflicts this year.

    Hummm that was a pretty good article. I wonder if there was a hint that Radiohead will be touring soon. It was also great that he realized the talk about no one day tics and in and outs. Sometimes I think people at the top delegate to the point where they don't know what's going on in detail. Not Mr T though. I was about a paragraph and a half in the OC one year I went. They interviewed us for about 5 minutes but you know how that goes ...

    The picture was during MBV. i would hope the Cure didn't bore them and they maintained their rail position for that incredible ending.

    “Of course I care about everyone who thinks of coming to Coachella,” he says. “But if you’ve got all these people who want to go for three days, I’d rather give them the opportunity first.”
    Of course, if it sells out soon there will be no second.

    “Of course I care about everyone who thinks of coming to Coachella,” he says. “But if you’ve got all these people who want to go for three days, I’d rather give them the opportunity first.” He’s keen to retain a certain vibe like you only find at festivals like Bonnaroo in Tennessee and Glastonbury in England. “When you’re on your third day … so many emotions have happened … and you become close to a lot of people that you met out there. It’s such a great feeling.”

    Regardless of your well-founded hate for me in the beginning, I wholeheartedly agree with you on this.
