    I couldn't afford a ticket. Therefore, scalpers. ANOTHER MYSTERY SOLVED. Now let's convene in the study for cocktails.

    Well if they didn't then people would have to accept their own failures, but we live in America so that can't happen.

    If it's true that scalpers are just hoarding all of the tickets, then that should drive the scalping prices down.

    Also, the huge number of people who are complaining because they didn't get tickets demonstrates that the festival is hugely popular and in demand, which could actually support the theory that legitimate buyers bought up all them pretty tickets.

    If what I've been hearing is true, that person might end up having their ticket order cancelled for exceeding the limit.

    10 times markup on camping passes last year, 20 times markup this year.

    It's simple math. BTW, they have multiple CC numbers/addresses/TM accounts.

    Also notice how GV has changed rules to make scalping a little more difficult. Not all of that had to do with gatecrashers.

    It's not my fault I didn't get a ticket. It's someone elses - obviously.

    Welcome to the blameless generation.

    Last I heard, there is this little known festival named Glastonbury that sells out before the lineup is officially released. This could be in Coachella's future.

    Just buy your tickets on layaway. Simple as that.
