    Default Anyone cancelling pre-booked Flights/Hotels due to lineup?

    I'm unenthesiastic about these headliners and am seriously thinking it's not worth the hassle/flight down from Vancouver. I didn't think twice about it in 2009/2010 and I can afford it. I think more likely than not Sasquatch will get better heads/subs and they have 20% the booking power.

    I can cancel the hotel and shift the flight to Lolla or something. Maybe the $50 Shuttle passes could be sold. Not sure if easier to eat half the ticket or try to sell it in April. I wonder if the cragslist market will be flooded or not.

    Hotel and flights have some deadlines coming up in the next week or two regarded full cancellations.

    I might prefer to eat $100-200 than blow $1,200+ on the weekend.

    Craigslist on the week of Coachella is ridiculous.

    So much last minute goers with money; $500 dollars for car camping passes last year; hotels charging 100-150/night.

    You can make a positive return to your investment.

    Maybe add a few hundred to that.

    How could you ever consider going to Lollapalooza OVER Coachella regardless of the headliners?

    The hotel I booked was overpriced IMO. Still trolling every day in hopes that my normal spot will finally open up.

    I didn't realize there are only three bands playing this year. Guess I won't go.
    2013 = Coverchella

    2011 = Perfectchella

    Craigslist market will be flooded by people trying to sell their chella tickets for like $500, tent/car passes for $400, and hotel rooms for 2,000 for three days. Price the tickets you've got for way less than that you're sure to get buyers.

    I went to Chella and Lolla last year. Looking like I"m going through with the trip regardless, though in someways I'm too embarrassed to tell my friends because they will look at the lineup.

    BTW, I still think there is several million $ missing from that lineup from past years. Those I know who work in the industry seem to agree. I hope there is an "add".
