    Default The one in which we speculate what percentage of weekend 1 GA passes were available

    I'm going with 50%. Last year they virtually sold out weekend one in presale. Guessing they are leaving a larger reserve this year.

    Why would they leave any available?

    I thought they would sell all of them, and we still don't know for sure that they didn't. I'm sure if weekend two follows suit, they will say if there are some thta will be available in January.

    I'm guessing at least 50% of the new threads in the next month will be scalper anger.

    Keep in mind that upwards 20,000 passes could be put aside for VIP and various accomodation packages.

    At some point today I think they will announce whether or not more tickets will be available in January otherwise they will be encouraging scalpers to rip people the fuck off.

    I sure hope so.
    Saw a pair of W1 passes selling for $1,800 on eBay already.

    last year there were 17k tickets available for the general on-sale (citing the #;s from GV that they sold 68k wknd 1 pre sale passes last year and the 85k figure for total attendance each weekend). the general onsale last year sold out in 3 hrs, this year in 2. just a guess, but that's how i got there.

    That makes sense. Though this doesn't matter to ticket brokers, the limit of 2 per transaction could have helped to push down the total. VIP Weekend 1 is now sold out as well.

    I think the number is a lot higher than 17k. Facebook was blowing up with people " r in 4 Week 1". Many of these people didn't go (or know ) about the festival in the past. Add that up with most of the forum board and I would say at least 50% is gone. Also, remember weekend 1 sold out within an hour last year while everything else was gone within 3 hrs.

    There's still a week left on the W2 presales to move.

    Only people who can't do W1 for work reasons have any reason to complain.

    I got mine

    ...I'd speculate they sold 90% or more of the GA passes presale. Amazing when you consider they only allowed 2 tickets this time per weekend

    I agree that the presale IS now the general sale

    there is NO reason they'd wait to get their $. Now they can go pay for artist, buy the polo field and rock on.

    Imagine what their bank account looks like....DAMN!!!!

    Weekend 2 will be sold out by Friday noon...bet the farm on it

    If GV were smart they would only sell a smaller amoun of tix during the presale..Then they get everyone hyped up and bummed that they didnt get tickets, then they release a bitchin lineup and jack up ticket pices an extra 50-100$..Make a lot more money, and once they put the 75% remaining, they will sellout instantly still

    God does this make so much sense! Other fests do their pre-sale for a lower price than when they go on general sale; why not Coachella?
