    Default The reason Coachella sold out in 6 days is...

    With this year's Coachella selling out in an amazing 6 days, the question on everyone's mind is why? What is so special about this year compared to the ones before? Yes, Coachella is popular, but I find it hard to believe it has reached "sell 75,000+ tickets in 6 days" status.

    So, why? What did it this year? More importantly, who can we blame?

    That's right. You guessed it.

    Mexico.

    As we all know, one of the most prominent performers this year is popular Mexican Rock band Caifanes. I honestly have no idea who they are, but apparently they're REALLY popular in Mexico. Like, OBAMA popular. Like, FRENCH FRIES POPULAR.

    In fact, Coachella is one of two AND ONLY TWO reunion shows that Caifanes will be playing. It's plain to see that the reason Coachella has sold out is because a wave of Mexican Caifanes fans (because let's be honest, who else has really even heard of, or can pronounce properly, "Caifanes?") have JUMPED on the chance to see their favorite band.

    Now, I myself managed to score a ticket. But I'd say about 20,000 - 74,000 people are out a ticket because the Mexicans love this band so much. There can be only one solution:

    We must infiltrate the personal lives of the band members of Caifanes and, using subtle persuasion (read: INCEPTION), we must convince them NOT to reunite and to decide NEVER TO SPEAK TO EACHOTHER AGAIN.

    I will leave the "how" up to you. Make those calls, build old bridges, sleep with whomever you need to. Just break this damn band up, for the good of the people. For America.

    Godspeed

    LMAO no I don't think that was the reason! Look how many electro DJs are in the lineup and the big raver fuzz that there is in SoCal and nationwide. In my opinion was because of all the drug addict ravers that want to get their PLUR on!

    Um... Coachella always had electronica djs.... more in the past than today. So you're pretty much making shit up.

    Don't completely disregard electronica music or associate it only to ravers. Anyway, ravers or whatever you want to call them have supported Coachella since the beginning.

    Perhaps, but there's a large and growing middle class, and a lot of Americans of Mexican ancestry ... meaning the market is larger than you'd think.

    That middle class keeps voting for that right wing National Action Party, known as PAN. I wish the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD) had a chance. the PRD won the 1988 Mexican presidential election but had it stolen from them by the ultra-corrupt Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).

    This. Zedillo was such a piece of shit, too. He was Clinton's puppet in the whole NAFTA deal.

    PS Coachella is, ultimately, a Southern California festival. Bitching about Mexicans at an event in Southern California is stupid if you're some dork from out of state. I don't care if you've been to 10 Coachella's, respect the local culture or keep your white ass at home. I'm white and I say this!

    Are you seriously this ignorant? please let me be wrong!

    If a large bunch of the Mexican population did indeed contribute to this year's selling out don't expect them to arrive on a donkey, jeez! They'll be staying at five star hotels and wearing expensive clothes, MARK MY WORDS

    The overall wealth in Mexico is greatly unbalanced, 90% of the country is fucked up while the rest have the country's money to spend in luxuries such as little trips like going to coachella.

    Also, lots of people from neighboring states like Baja California (like myself) and Sonora go every year and let me tell you you wouldn't even guess they're Mexicans just by looking at them if you were to be looking for brown-skinned people based on your racist profiling.

    I am Mexican and I am not going for Caifanes, and like everyone else, I'll go to have the best weekend of the year.

    Yes, because there are no Mexicans in California/Arizona. I know that my office certainly isn't filled with Mexican-Americans who make the same amount of money that I do.

    I think a lot of people are underestimating the fans/follower's that Arcade Fire has now. The fact they're playing made this a must go to event for me.
