Thread: The reason Coachella sold out in 6 days is...

  1. #1

    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!

    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.

    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.

    People really are underestimating the popularity of CAIFANES. They are the most important rock band in all of Latin America and after 16years they're back. They definitely had a huge part in Coachella being SOLD OUT. They've been on my Coachella wishlist since 2005 when I started attending.

    Why are they 4th on the Friday bill? Below Interpol of all acts, plus the Chem Bros who'll "only" play to 5-10k people in the Dance tent?

    Bumblebee - it's hard to say.

    I'd never heard of the band, myself, but it's not my music so that's no real surprise. The Spanish-language Wikipedia page on Caifanes (which was modified today but apparently only to make a minor grammatical change) substantiates the claim, however:

    "Años 90: La banda más importante de México"

    "No se puede hablar de un rock mexicano sin hacer mención de Caifanes, Caifanes podría parecer un grupo de las tantas propuestas surgidas en los años ochentas, sin embargo marca una gigantesca influencia para la sociedad mexicana y para los artistas que surgieron tras su aparición."

    Now, it's possible this was written by a fanboy - wikipedia does have that issue when it comes to esoteric subjects - but the page has been edited on the order of 800 times and those two claims have stood for three years, so it seems unlikely.

    I'm Mexican and didn't purchase a ticket on time.

    However, I'm a pro at jumping fences and running.
