Thread: So...when do they open up more 3-day tickets?

  1. #1

    Question So...when do they open up more 3-day tickets?

    It is quite obvious that there are tickets still available...this is a ploy that ticketing agents do in order to curb the scalping business...though after looking on ebay this morning, I would say that it is hardly being curbed. My question is, during past Coachella's (where I have heard from some fairly reliable sources that tickets had sold out and then began leaking out through ticketmaster) what date did these leaks begin to occur? I have a brother who is planning to come out from Michigan and I would feel much more secure having tickets in hand than going to Indio and hoping beyond hope that they open up the box office, weekend of the show...That is never a good plan...too many bummer dead shows in the 90's being either ripped off on the price of tickets, being sold FAKE tickets or gate-crasher's wrecking it for the entire crowd...

    They will likely go on sale the end of January, beginning of February '08, assuming that it's 3 days again next year.

    no i think he read it correctly...if the guy is asking when he will be able to buy more 3 day passes from ticketmaster...then february 08 sounds about right

    If it's like the previous years, tickets will be released late march early april. Every year they've released more tickets in the last month-2months.

    I don't remember there ever being a sudden release of tickets in past years. Then again was it ever declared sold out in past years? Nevertheless, if anything I do remember tickets being sold at the site of the venue either through the box office or some other means and I believe there were random scalpers here or there near the parking lots.

    that is not true, it wasnt sold out when madonna was announced so there were no tickets released, they were still on sale.

    06 and 04 sold out? It didn't seem that packed at all, people were coming and going throughout the day I'd imagine, although when Madonna showed up I hightailed it outta there. Hmm but yes she was announced to the lineup last minute and as a result more tickets were made available. Is it even possible that they would announce another band last minute like that, that would draw a crowd and hence promote the idea for new ticket releases?

    how about not at all.

    the claim they've released tickets in past years is completely false, there have been day of releases, but thats it.

    Most likely none. The venue does not hold the capacity to fit that many people, and if you plan on buying tickets from the box you're insane. Good luck in getting any at that point.

    Why would you be insane to camp out at the box?

    Unless you're rich, that's your only hope right now.

    I doubt they'll release anymore tickets at the box. If anything you're just prime bait for scalpers.
