Thread: Coachella is way expencive!

  1. #1

    Default Coachella is way expencive!

    I was thinking about it, Coachella is going to be really friggin expencive. Its acctually going to cripple my checkbook. Lets see, My ticket for 3 days is $250 + $35 Camping (I think its a 1 time fee) if not then $35 a day + Food lets say about $60.00 for the entire weekend... lets see just for my self that will come out to about...

    $345.00 total for the entire weekend.
    $415.00 total for the entire weekend if the camping tickets are per day.

    This is way expensive, i guess its Ramen Noodles and Water for a few weeks huhh... Something has to be done with the ticket prices

    You're gonna need to add a little more to the ticket price. That's before Ticketbastard has their way with you.

    I would budget for $100 inside the festival for each day. Even if you avoid the $7 beers, there are lots of vendor booths with cool merch you may be interested in.

    First pre sale ended last night... So you will be broke after buying your ticket on ticketmaster... And those figures are super conservative. I have almost $1,000 budgeted for this and I am not even staying in a hotel.

    OK...since we're coming from the same area as me, I'd like to see your breakdown - especially if you're not staying in a hotel.

    This sucks, $45 to camp! Uggh... Now i dont even know, Im not buying merch. I mean i just cant. I cant afford it. I never even figured in Ticketmaster raping charges, and then we have to take into account Gas. Which is expensive. HOLY SHIT!

    I'm budgeting about $1000 as well, and I've got $39 hotel rooms through my awesome work discount.

    Coachella is expensive, but worth every penny.

    If you are doing this do it right I say.... I have been saving money since November, I get my tax return in mid March so I'm covered.

    $223 for a 3 day pass
    $53 for camping(including tickbastard fees)
    $400 to spend
    $25 on gas
    $100 on supplies like snacks,water etc for my campsite
    $TBD on just other things I buy leading up to the festival, like I wanna getwalkie talkies for example.

    My total:

    $250 ticket
    $53 camping (w/Ticketbastard fee)
    $100-200 gas
    $100 food (prebought for the most part)
    $100 for merch
    Total: around $650 I expect

    Also, the $300 Oh Shit Fund for emergency use only

    It's too bad I forgot how to speak English up there. Ugh.

    For some reason, I save up big time for spending cash and then never spend more than $50 a day. My gas will be $60, at least. My lodgings will be about $150. If I counted all the pre-Coachella purchases, I'd probably have a higher tab.

    Any idea which kind of walkie talkies you'll get? I wanna try some too.

    So $217 is that 3 days? Is that PreSale? How much will a regular ticket be. I wish they would put that out so that I can plan out my money. I have my girlfriends birthday in there.

    Exactly how much is each ticket for one day only. How bout a three day pass.

    You know...if you were to work out the number of bands you are stoked on seeing...and divided the total price of your trip by THAT number...I bet it wouldn't seem as bad.

    A single day ticket is $86 plus service fees which ends up over $100. A 3 day pass is $250 plus service fees which will end up under $300. I paid $223 for my 3 day pass with the special pre sale. It was $199 plus $12 in service fees, then $12 on shipping.
