    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

    At least Mexicans are a very polite bunch that would never resort to fence jumping.

    The official ticket seller in Mexico (Livetours.com.mx) still have tickets for coachella 2011, also they (Caifanes) perform 1 week before in Vive Latino festival in Mexico city, why purchase a 270 usd ticket plus airplane, plus hotel, when you have it in your hometown for only 30 usd?

    Racist!

    There's a large chunk of Mexico for which Indio is closer than Mexico City, for one thing.

    Also, if livetours.com.mx is actually still selling tickets, that means the overall set of tickets was partitioned into two sets -> one for TM in the US, one for livetours in MX -> meaning that the number TM had available to sell was smaller than usual.

    Atleast these mexicans are coming legally, with money, to spend in the valley I live in; and not crappy weed or coke or tweek or anything illegally over a border.

    If this theory is true, they're coming for the same reason we are: because they love music and want to have the experience of seeing musicians they love.

    Okay instead of blaming the mexicans:

    The reason coachella gets bigger and bigger is because each year the festival has more newcomers and a huge percentage of new people introduced to coachella return each year. so what you have is more demand then can be met; so it sells out. Then after it selling out last year, the people that didn't get to go will be much quicker to buy their tickets this time around and that percentage of people will grow bigger and bigger until the festival is sold out before the lineup is even out. Look at europe, sorry to say it is the future.

    When I saw Caifanes on the bill I knew they would have a major effect on ticket sales, so i'll stick with your theory too, haha.

    THIS CaNT be the future of Coachella! Even if your right and the festival sells out in a day the lineup will just get worse and worse for a sealed deal.
    I'm not blaming Mexicans for this one. Once the dust settles and crowds walk away you'll return to lush clean green field waiting for your dismissables.

    It's time the Churros were taken down a peg.

    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.

    You are all ignorant pricks. Believe me, Caifanes is a big deal but it's not like if all Mexicans would pay a $600 dlls. trip or more just to see them; don't be stupid. And for those telling shit and else at least we have more culture and life. I speak spanish, english, french, and german; what can you speak ignorant bastards? dirty English? BTW I am in no racist but I get tired when I see this shit.
