    straight from the fucking coachella website, people. anyone think to check there????

    http://www.coachella.com/festival-passes/charges

    Pass was $285.

    "The additional charges on top of the face value of the passes are as follows:

    GA Pass + $3 Charity +$9 Facility fee + $29 service/convenience fee"

    =$326 + $10 for shipping = $336

    The price went up $13.

    I'm really not sure if I can save that extra $13 over the course of 11 months.

    "The additional charges on top of the face value of the passes are as follows:

    GA Pass + $3 Charity +$9 Facility fee + $29 service/convenience fee"

    =$326 + $10 for shipping = $336

    The price went up $13.
    My receipt says "There is a $12 ($9 Facility + $3 Charity included in the base price of each ticket).
    This is not a new thing they are doing this year, they did it last year too.

    I see no $29 service/convenience fee, but I do have a $116 Delivery fee (for 4 tickets), which coincidentally is 4x$29, so that is the same.

    overall tickets are going to be $35 more.
    All they are doing is including the shipping in with the price this year.


    I don't have much problem with it, but we should be clear on the increase.

    Edit: I can't even find if shipping is actually going to be included in the ticket price this year. Can anyone else find it?

    no, they will be $13 more per ticket. not sure how much clearer it can be when going by what is on the website. take off $10 for shipping and that $12 for the charity/facility fee from your $35 and, wow magic, you have $13. not a coincidence. seems there was some misinformation on your receipt.

    Even if the price increase WAS $35, that is spread out over ten payments. That is $3.50 a month. If that is going to be an issue, then buying Coachella tickets in the first place is a poor financial decision.

    ok i concede it's a little confusing on my receipt.


    this year 4 passes + shuttle = $1596 ($399x4)
    last year 4 passes + shuttle = $1462 ($365.50x4)

    difference - $33.50 increase

    this is assuming shipping is included in the $399 price this year. If it is, cool. If not, rabble rabble.

    They are charging more because they can. They sold out quickly last year. That told them that they had it priced too low. If you sold bottles of ketchup for $1.49 and they sold out in two minutes, you would raise the price to $1.99.

    They will not give us more services because we paid more. They will give us more services if they (a) tell us that they will provide more services as an incentive to pay the extra money, and/or (2) feel that the services they had been providing mean that fewer people will buy tickets.

    Why when I was kid, you got the matinee for $3 if you were an adult and went in before 6pm, not 4pm! Now a days, you see a matinee and its $9.50 before 3pm, then they don't have the popcorn specials, and the kids check your bags so you can't use the good ol' air popper for popcorn from home. Metal detectors have stopped me from bringing in sodas too! DAMN KIDS.


    Edit: And now we're gonna pay extra for art that won't be ready till weekend 2.

    was that presale? maybe you did? maybe presale had a little discount last year, but regular onsale was the $285 + the $12 and other fees like convenience and shipping. i do seem to remember presale being $269 and then that $12 would make it $281. would make sense that many here would see a larger increase since i am assuming most here did buy during presale. seems we may have found our discrepancy.

    Total cost for a layaway ticket last year was $320. This year it's 349. It's an 8% increase.

    Here is my statement. We all didn't buy from Radiohead's website which charged a tad more. This was purchased directly through Coahcella/Front Gate on layway last June.



    Not here to argue just point out the facts since so many people are giving different prices for last year.

    add the $16 more for the difference between presale and general onsale, $269(or $281 once you add in the $12 charge like on crimescene's receipt)+fees = $320 to the $285+fees = $336. so there was a discount for presale last year, not this year.

    I paid $368 per person for the ticket/shuttle combination. So $399 - $368 = $13 now? Maybe make sure you should check with those who paid for tickets before you start complaining about their math skills.

    not talking about the shuttle combos. purely cost of a ga pass. general on sale pass last year was $336 and this year is $349, no presale discount.

    Yes I bought the moment they went on presale last year.
    If you look at the receipt though I was wrong about the $116 delivery (it's really $10), it just looks that way on first glance.

    Oh my god who the fuck gives a shit. You all sound retarded getting up in arms over an extra 20, 30, 40, or even 50 dollar price increase to a weekend that costs us each at least a grand even if you're super thrifty. Now please stop arguing about tiny price increases, this same dumb crap goes on every year and it's always stupid.

    they just need to start charging $20 for day parking, everyone is so conditioned to have to pay for it at pretty much every other large scale event they go to. would be less outrage over that than the $13 more for a pass this year.

    If really is just going towards lining their pockets, I will be disapointed. If it will be going towards the festival (expanding the grounds, better maintance of the grass, better EDM bookings, David Bowie, etc...) then I think the cost may be worth it.
    I'd like if they resumed bringing art installations that don't fucking suck. And Bowie hand jobs, naturally.
