    Smile Help me not get ripped off

    I found tickets for $430 each,should I buy now? or wait

    I think that's pretty fuckin cheap considering they are going for like 678 on eBay

    The ticket source is reliable,but when do they ship/when will the seller ship them to me etc

    I've been going for 4 years and with DFA this year I think this wil be like my most have-to-go year I really appreciate yr help thanks!

    How do you know they are "legit?" Clearly you have done no research about how tickets work this year. Festival wrist bands will not be mailed out to the purchaser until 3 WEEKS before the event. Do you trust giving someone money now and them mailing you your festival wristband in the beginning of April?

    You're getting ripped off if you're not paying face value.

    That's it exactly! And then it's like everyone is saying to wait for the prices to go down a little when everyone I freaking out,But i'd like the security of having a ticket now/I got my ticket from this guy 2 years ago/legit-ish

    Should I just go the stubhub route??

    You completely miscomprehended what I wrote. Go ahead and buy the tickets, I don't care anymore.

    Oops I think I worded that incorrectly,I'm worried about giving some dude money two months and a half months in advance and getting fucked in the end.
