    Default Attn: idiots buying tickets for both weekends...

    Don't be greedy.

    The whole point of adding on a second weekend was so that everyone who wants to experience the festival will be able to.

    In an effort to try and accommodate everyone who wants to experience the festival, COACHELLA 2012 will be two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends....We know many of you were unable to attend this year's festival because passes sold out much sooner than anticipated.
    If you're buying tickets for both weekends you are killing the spirit of the festival and taking up tickets that would be potentially purchased by other people. Just stop. One Coachella a year is enough.

    It's called sharing. It's fun. Learn it.

    You know, I had this opinion as well. Then I saw that Coachella.com has links to hotels with deals for 10-day stays and passes to both weekends. It is your money that GV wants after all.

    I imagine some industry types will snatch those up. That could be quite a party week. It's not like GV owns the hotels anyway; that's part of the ripple effect a huge event like this creates in the local economy. A lot of people will be making money.

    BINGO!

    Money, not fan experience. If they wanted lots of fans to enjoy a fest, they could make it free like the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in SF. Tons of people tripping, having a great time in a beautiful setting. But they don't. They want silver-plated strippers and motorboats with HEMI engines.

    Who would silver plate a stripper? At that point it's go gold or go home.

    Both weekends is perfect for people with multiple personalities so they will have a different experience with the same bands.

    I have not missed a single day since I stumbled upon that St. Germain set in 2001 and I will happily attend every day of Coachella on that polo pitch until at least 2025. I must be an idiot.

    But what if both weekends didn't sell out? Then they would be selfish for not attending both and filling GV's bank balance.

    Besides, we live in Merica and the constitution guarantees our right to attend both Coachella weekends.

    I doubt the small number of people with the means, time, money and serotonin levels for 2 weekends of Coachella will stop anyone from getting tickets.

    Dear Mother,

    I will not ask your forgiveness, but I will start repenting now for being a killer of the spirit of the greatest North American Music Festival for purchasing tickets for both weekends with the money I worked for. Says you.

    How could I possibly know in my excitement after growing up and living my whole life in America with,

    Happy Hour 7 days a week when everything is two for one.
    Blunts more than twice the size of the joints I knew as a teenager.
    The Shlomski twins! Sorry girls for saying that out loud on the interwebs.
    Two week paid vacations working 30 years for the same job and ending up on disability with two bad knees.
    Having two vehicles so when one breaks down I can jump in the other and don't have to fix the broken one right away today. I can take two days to fix it.
    Two ex wives. Especially when I took our daughter with me to Coachella 2011 rather than them!
    Oh and living in America where I have the right to choices, like which weekend I choose to go to cause GV puts it out there for it's fans.
    But that's right according to you, because I could and chose to, I'm greedy, an idiot and a spirit killer of the festival. Oh ya and not sharing.

    Dan, ummm remember to see if there happens to be two ignore buttons on this great forum.

    GV have the technology to only limit fans from each household to buy passes for one of the weekends. The same technology that only allows one camping pass per weekend per household.

    Any fan that saved their pennies and watches onsale dates will get what they want.

    I wasn't going to both Coachellas until I read this thread.

    I don't have to share with poor people. No socialism, Nobama 2012. My fun will eventually trickle down to you poor folk at some point.
