    'You will likely not be directed to the purchase page prior to sell out.'

    That has to be some algorithmically generated text based on wait time right? It's been 8 minutes since they've gone on sale.

    I will be shocked if they sell out in presale that fast. But crazier things have happened.

    I was through the waiting room in about 20 minutes, which is way faster than it was last year, but I know it's not the same for everyone... keep trying everyone!

    That sucks. I couldn't remember my frontgate password so I had to have it emailed to me and get it reset. Barely completed my order with like :35 seconds left. I was so stressed.

    Exact same thing happened to me. I even gave up and said to myself, "self... its not the end of the world." My girlfriend was actually really pissed at me... but i went back in and bought them no wait. It was really weird.

    LOL

    Such fail.

    They really need to contract with a more competent ticket provider. Does Front Gate even do anything else besides provide Coachella tickets?

    I decided not to risk getting shut out and bought weekend 2. I hope that wasn't a mistake.

    I can't believe I'm actually wishing for TicketDisaster to be managing this instead.

    This is an embarrassment.

    Zero chance that the entire week 1's supply of tickets was sold out (or at least had enough people in line to buy them) within 2 minutes.

    They must be holding a large percentage of them back for the general sale, or perhaps for other pre-sale days.

    It is funny how they are supposedly so against scalping yet they are making it so hard for legitimate people to buy tickets.

    Weird. After I purchased my weekend 1 pass at about 11:35 I went back in just out of curiosity and I got taken right to the purchase page, no waiting at all.

    they didn;t hold any back last year for the general sale, doubt they will this year.

    I guess there's also a chance that they're using this method to trick people into buying weekend 2 who otherwise wouldn't have wanted that weekend.

    have people forgotten that this happened last year, and then weekend 1 was available for purchase that entire week without any problems?

    haha ya. That's why I'm not even bothering right now. Both weekends can't sell out in presale. If they do then well... I guess I'm fucked.

    They need some sort of sound alert when you actually connect to the buy page, so I can go do something else like watch TV or jerk off in the meantime.

    I got in within 10 minutes and was able to purchase 2 more sets for my friends. All I did when I was finished with my order was clicked on the coachella banner and it took me right back to the purchase page again, no standby.

    See you all in 2013!
