Thread: So long Coachella

    Default So long Coachella

    Thanks for the memories, but you've officially jumped the shark. I'm sure there are tons of people who had an amazing time, but I wasn't one of them. It's been real.

    The party is now at DEMF.

    xoxo

    In a couple years ill probably abandon Coachella for another festival, just to see what else is out there, but for now they still have my patronage. I was about to get upset at the price hike until I rememberedhow much i wouldve been willing to spend at the prospect of almost not getting a direct ticket last time.

    has nobody else read the part where the price increase isn't actually an increase, just some long-overdue honesty about service charges?

    you fucking people.

    If you set aside $3 a month then maybe it'd let some of you rest easier over this dramatic price increase.

    Thanks! I actually pride myself on my ability to "clarify" details. Some people just assume things and are later surprised and I don't like that so I ask questions to make sure! Believe it or not this has actually been a handy trick in my life. Thanks again!

    you fucking people.
    Are you suggesting it's the same price as last year? It's a $30 increase. I don't think that's a huge deal, but try to be accurate.
    ACTUALLY ITS $13 increase.

    If I recall correctly, presale and onsale prices turned out to not be the same last year once orders were processed; I'd have to compare my presale tickets with the receipt of my friend who had to buy onsale (without shuttle) to be certain. Either way both are an increase, the presale price being the $39 or so jump that people seem to be referencing, the onsale difference is less of a gap if memory serves.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Every transaction made between my checking account and Front Gate totaled up to $320. It's a $30 increase.

    If this means Lil Wayne will never play Coachella, this calls for celebration.
