    If the passes were all registered as they were sold I don't see why Goldenvoice couldn't use something like Ticketmaster's system where you can resell a ticket to a show you bought except it's all verified by their system so you know you're not getting ripped off. But in TM's case it's like an ebay auction, whereas Coachella could just let you put your wristband's ID back into the system available for purchase anew at face value from GV and when it's sold just deactivate your wristband and refund you your ticket costs minus all the fees and whatever a fair fee is for "restocking" so to speak. You get a guaranteed ticket but if you can't go you can only get half your money back. I'd do it.

    I endorse this idea in theory.

    I also endorse seeing where Randy v. Goatchella goes.

    Well written and I support.

    Also, Goatchella, as much as I sort of enjoy him, would be completely outwitted.

    Also, hoping someone sends this in a message to Paul's facebook ( I would but I'm at work-no Zuckerberg here).

    What do you mean, tl,dr? That fine example of reading material had me on the end of my office chair wondering whether or not you would be unleashing your typical cache' of rude and vile insults as each paragraph would unfold. (The suspense.) I was literally glued to my seat thinking that the post would take a surprise turn with you informing Paul that this was your message board! (The anticipation.) But, lo n' behold, (The awe.) your writing style exposed a concerned and compassionate side of you that gave this piece an almost "Happily Ever After" ending... Almost.... Will there perhaps be a sequel coming out around lineup time? I can't hardly wait!

    I don't think it requires facebooking him. He reads the boards, I imagine he'll definitely be checking in today to gauge reactions to yesterday's surprising events.

Perhaps even a Glasto-style system where you get a picture ID in your wristband gift box that you have to flash as you go through so that the security staff could check your name against the name showing on the turnstile display?
    I agree with this, although it does seem a bit 1984-ish.

    Is Coachella broke? not financially but functionally? No! So why fix it?

    Now if you have frequent flyer miles type thing...and he was tracking how many hours you put into this festival over the course of the last 12 + years, maybe he could have kept track of who has paid dues. He hasn't. You are not any more special than the next guy in line, whether he chooses to buy tickets for his child, to see one band and leave, to sell them for more ect.

    In our economy, our consumer driven, money talks world...it is just that. Money talks. Coachella did not expand and blow up on good vibes and support from returning attendees. Coachella blew up because newbs with no clue and a handful of cash wanted to experience what Coachella was all about. Why should anyone cater to you? You really think the tap tap, claimed it, I was here first shit applies anywhere, ever? If that was the case, the natives of the land would be scalping your dumb asses and be dancing around a fire and banging a drum.

    Money talks. The examples are everywhere around you. Goldenvoice is not the 1%. Rallying and occupying (annoying) this website will not change any of those facts. Revolution is def in order...but not to change Coachella Music Festival. Something else. It is already happening. There are other avenues.

    I understand your frustration. I agree that things have changed for the worse, all over. There are too many mouths, too many eyes and ears. Paul cannot make everyone happy. You cannot always get your way. Its hard, but deal with it.

    It's got to be killing you to remain subdued and mature while refraining from going off on Goat, isn't it? I bet that little Wit stick of yours is quivering as it anticipates it's next verbal assault...

    Support your idea all the same, obviously, and appreciate that you're proposing ideas like the above that could help to further eliminate the specter of scalping.
    If I'm not mistaken (which I may be) at Glasto if you can't go you basically forfeit the tickets back to Glasto and can't sell them on the open market. I realize a short time window (such as a broken leg right before the fest) may be a challenge, but that's the risk. No different if you dropped money for a vacation and you suddenly had to cancel, losing deposits etc.

    was just going to say, it will get to him just fine via this channel. the guys at the top know what's going on and what is being said, i just really hate that they have to waste their time reading all the shit that is posted by the whiners on this board and facebook that have no clue how the business is run or who the people are behind it. i take it personally at times since i have a personal relationship with some there and know how great they are.

    I don't have any beef with anyone here...i don't even know who passive theory is, or why everyone makes fun of him...really, I don't give a shit. I goof around a lot, I know that. I am being serious here. This whole request and idea is a fucking pipe dream. It is just not real and would never work out.

    This is not Korea. Goldenvoice needs to cater to the people. All of the boards OG, elite are a small fraction of "the people". If your such an old school badass, you'd have a place in the festival like Danny or Mike...doing something, contributing and putting in hours that matter. The amount of hours you put in drinking beer and watching bands at chella and/or bullshitting here about music and other things does not make you an asset or someone that deserves anything.

    If you want to change things or assure your position, devote some time and energy into Coachella. Use all the hours you ramble and degrade morons here to instead better the festival. Everyone is talking and no one is doing.

    The fact that Paul and GV DO listen to what we say on the board and try to fix things, speaks VOLUMES to me as a consumer, and I want to remain a loyal Coachellian as a result.

    It's not a matter of listening but more a matter of what he is hearing having any kind of influence at all. I don't doubt that every concern is taken with a grain of salt. The idea that anyone here is being heard more because they have been going for longer seems out of whack. I know you would like to think that you are someone special and get some kind of reward for years and years of attending Coachella.

    you have been rewarded. Every year. You buy the ticket and you have a good time. Thats the only agreement. He has delivered. You are being greedy and will always want more.

    Speaking for the very few that have been with the festival since 1999 and have never missed a year, I do feel I am owed a little something. I have invested so much money and time, and it saddens me that the only thing that might keep me from going next year would be that getting tickets has become such a huge pain in the ass. I refuse to buy a pass from scalpers.

    You have no right to be critical of Coachella - JustSteve said so. He knows people. Has he mentioned that.

    Also, stop moaning about the price. It upsets him. He gets in free.

    Correction - not free - just free upgrades and bowie hand jobs.

    I agree with Gunz. Not about that I'm owed anything. I'm not. However, it would be cool if we were rewarded for the loyalty. Not a complaint, just would be a cool thing.

    you aren't a dummy...you will get tickets.

    I will give them to you if you can't find them. All you vets are too smart and too seasoned to be worried. You should just KNOW>.

    So when April comes along...lemme know if anyone needs help. Including Randy. Ill help you without thinking twice. The good energy and love here on these boards will never be smothered by newbs or ticket sales. You are all respected by the youngsters like me. Your help and your years of experience have taught all of us and we will pay it forward. Paul is busy.
    We have each other and thats all we need.

    so if people talk shit about your friends it doesn't upset you? you don't defend them? i am not allowed to offer an opinion about things and let people know that i am coming from the side of someone who has a relationship with the people who are being talked shit on? i am perfectly content to correct someone who says they are only in it for the money, they don't care about the fans, etc. why can't i use the fact that i know someone to help in my point?

    being critical is fine. being critical with no idea about things and bitching just to bitch is not, which is what i was commenting on. and yes, bitching about paying an extra $13/$29 is fucking ridiculous. do people bitch to the gas station attendant every time gas goes up? a manager at a grocery store when the price of milk increases?

    i do not get in for free.
