Don't worry ... Plenty of time between now and the concert. Last year I was stressed out waiting for passes worried I would have to fly out before I had my tickets. Everything worked out in the end.
GV has proven to have their shit together and if there is a problem, they will work things out...
Take a deep breath and relax...
I received shipping confirmation for my Week 2 order early this morning! 1 ticket and 1 car camping pass bought during the first day of layaway.
they didnt ship ours in time last year and we had to leave without them, the 2 other people (friends of friends) who had tix on our order freaked out and bought off Kijiji, we had to sell the extra two outside of will call. i just want to cuddle with them for a bit before we leave this year...
Should I be worried if my Front Gate Order History looks like this...
They didn't ship out in time because they started shipping them towards the end of March, not the end of February and I assume they were more backed up than they had anticipated. I am pretty sure GV wants to avoid any of the stress it had a year ago and that's why they are sending them out a lot earlier this year and at a steadier rate. Usually when GV has a problem or an issue with Coachella one year, it usually becomes a non-issue the following year. Patience.
Should be getting my tickets today. yay ya!
Ok so after I posted, I got another email that they shipped more tickets to me!

No , mine looked the same way. Called just to make sure, they said its fine dont worry about it, email should be coming soon.
when i tried this today, though, UPS told me that it couldn't change the address until i'd gotten an infonotice (basically, until they tried delivery and failed), and that before then, the change would have to come from frontgate.
frontgate charged me $20, which was steep but probably worth it for peace of mind.
Come on weekend 2!! Need the physical passes to make the trade for weekend 1!!!
I got two as well, one is supposed to come Tuesday, one Wednesday. Neither has been picked up by UPS yet, so we'll see which one moves.
More confidence builders. I know it's a huge undertaking, but that's all the more reason for stricter quality control. Also, my roommate's girlfriend bought a pass off a boardie, and he asked for the address to be changed weeks ago and they never followed up with him.
Oh well, 2 numbers are better than none.
EDIT- At least they actually required a signature for my roommate's yesterday.
maybe the difference is that mine is still just at the 'we have been notified to pick this up' stage rather than the 'in transit' stage.
i might have been able to wait, but ... since last year it went straight from that stage to the 'shipped' stage, i'd rather not take the risk.
^ the difference might be enrolling in the service like GIT did; if I remember correctly re-routing without having to wait for the first delivery attempt was one of the features.
Did the layaway thing for weekend 2 and no email yet
I'm nervous because I don't know how to log into my account linked to my order. I can log in to the frontgate coachella site and it has all my contact info correct but get the same message others are getting. (We were unable to find any orders for your account.)
Their website is truly the most pathetic thing.
Sadly, we're not camping this year. Gonna try the condo thing and see if I can keep my energy level up - the heat has been completely draining these past couple of years.
One of the tickets I bought off Waste has shipped. I know because the reference number in the UPS email is the same as the Waste order number.
2005, 2007, 2011, 2012 W1, 2012 W2, 2013 W1, 2013 W2, and SOON 2014 W1 & 2014 W2!!
I got mine today!
