    I think the land the purchased is the area next to it. Where people camp. Maybe they are going to reduce the camping area spots or something.

    i don't know that for sure. all i know is that they did just buy many of the fields surrounding the actual concert venue, though, and it had to cost 'em quite a bit of money. some of those costs may be defrayed by adding a couple bucks to each ticket. just guessing.

    GV is not the government. They are not accountable to you as to specifics of what they do with the additional revenue. GV is a private, for-profit company and maximizing profits is rational economic behavior, up to a point. They continue to be accountable to you only in the sense that you as a paying customer do a cost/benefit analysis each year in your decision whether or not to attend.

    Hyperinflation is a very specific economic phenomenon. It's not a buzzword to spit out when you don't like a sticker price.

    After spending 1500+ I could care less about the extra 30-40 bucks, just get a better gyro vendor.

    An extra $3,000,000 roughly per weekend. Not too shabby.

    Cost increase would come down several things to selling fewer VIP tickets/fuel cost increases/generators/security costs/police costs etc.

    Or maybe GV wants a really good end of year Christmas party.

    Just wait until a week before the festival, then you can get a wristband for the 2012 price. People are always desperate to unload then.

    Here's an article about the land purchase earlier this year. I think they were already leasing most of this anyway, so I wouldn't expect a dramatic increase in space. It does allow them to think about more permanent infrastructure stuff.

    I know this. And I know I am not going to get a straight answer. It would be nice to get a straight answer though.

    Josh, as your employer, I am considering giving you a raise. However, before I do, I would like to know what you are going to do with the additional money I am paying you.

    On the bright side, they probably won't raise the price for another 6 years

    Pay off my credit card debt, and then once that is finished probably saving up for a trip to Peru. Do I still get a raise?

    Supply and Demand Mothafuckas! It's a free market...

    On the other hand... limiting the 'thickets' to 2 per household will create a price distortion and fuck things up. Any Economics majors want to back me up?

    This should have ended the thread. Stop fucking whining, it's ridiculous to see so many people believe that Coachella is some magic place put on by a bunch of cool dudes who simply want to put on a festival in Southern California for all their friends. It's a fucking business and it's meant to make a profit so shut up and move on or go and have a fun time. If lining some executive's pocket with your hard earned cash just doesn't sit well with you than don't go, or buy anything in America...ever.

    That's right you assholes. Nobody should ever complaint about price increases. They don't matter at all no matter how loyal of a customer you have been. Just shut up forever. lol
