    I'm sorry you don't get in for free. You should complain. Drop a few names.

    Yeah, this is just nuts. I've been going since 2001 and almost missed 2011 if not for an Angel Investor of a boardie. But this really takes the cake. I had no cash to spend on Thursday because my pay day was today so this really hurt. I'll take my chances again come January but I don't like the odds if the pre sale a year before the festival sells out like this. Especially if they get a extra crowd friendly headliner. If it something like David Bowie or Led Zeppelin then anyone who doesn't have tickets is just fucked.

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

    Correction - not free - just free upgrades and bowie hand jobs.
    bowie actually pays to touch my cock, i'm nice and only charge him half the cost of my pass, i make up the rest.

    I would just like a first crack at the tickets for the loyalty. I wouldn't demand anything else.

    your years of knowing better should have you prepared with money in account and a computer online at 9:55.

    You know better....there was plenty of warning. Like you stated...we all take care of each other. There is no way someone that wants to go will not go.
    Obviously some just like to complain...if it isn't the tickets, its the beer, the music, the guests, the weather, the art ...ect. Surprised Paul hasn't killed himself....if he really gave a shit about everyone crying all the time he would have blown his head off years ago.

    I wouldn't say six days was necessarily plenty of time to be fully prepared to make the initial purchase. Some people just can't come up with money that quickly. Last year, it was a couple weeks later. Maybe he prepared for a similar date.

    As for the letter, agreed that it would be great to reward those who helped keep the festival afloat during the bad times, but I get that they don't need to do this anymore. I will just always do my best to be prepared and roll with the punches as necessary.
    For your health

    (this is before I read the letter)


    edit: ok, they actually did have the ''microcommunity'' for 3 years where you could create a different account not attached to the message board. You could put information like what years you attended, who your favorite performances of each year were, and I think if I recall correctly, anyone you would like to see the following year. I always thought it was a way to sample survey the audience and see what was liked and what wasnt liked.


    Didnt Paul T mention in a story once where he broke down some of the audience data and all that? Like ''20% of people attending wanted to see The Killers, while that same 20% wanted to see the Chemical Brothers'' or something to that effect. There has been an attempt at this, it never caught on.



    All in all, they should go the way of Glastonbury, picture attached to the wristband and all that. Its in your name, you cannot transfer it no matter what. You will have the option to ''opt out'' at a certain point so it could be resold to somebody else, and thats it. This will probably have to be the next step taken to see how committed the audience is to attending the festival. I would also think that you only get a limited time to opt out of your ticket to get a refund, so lets say, a week after the line up is out you will have the option, and then those remaining tickets go onsale a couple weeks later. Glasto makes you opt out before there is even a line up, but they give you the headliners at least. I doubt GV would do that, though.

    Why is everyone acting like tickets are so difficult to get? Do we not remember how many extras were flooding just a few months ago?

    I know someone who was in the waiting room yesterday at 9:55 and didn't get a pass. This person has only missed two Coachellas since 1999. It's getting to be like buying Super Bowl tickets where, no matter how much you prepare, you're likely going to have to buy a ticket on the secondary market unless you get lucky or know someone. At this rate, it will be there in two years. So, I get the sentiment behind the original post and I would be totally for it.

    Totally agree, but sometimes people are more paranoid about buying on the secondary market because there are no guarantees. If you get them through a friend then obviously that's different, but there can be a lot of stress in buying passes in the secondary market.

    Im sure almost everyone here agrees with the sentiment. That does not mean it is realistic or fair. You know a lot of people. We are a pretty big fucking network ( genius and derp alike) This "problem" with tickets hold an answer. We need each other now. We need to help each other.

    thank you....the panic has been extinguished with reason.

    Who cares how I think? you apparently. Sorry to let you down wise one. Ive told you countless times I am an uneducated simpleton. You can file that into your big cabinet and move on.



    LUCK will get you tickets, luck will get your whiney voices heard. All the skill, education, experience, wisdom, money and loyalty in the world will not assure you a Coachella ticket. Can you just realize that you have no control or input in the matter? Stop fighting the universe. You will never win.

    At this point, the only way you'll find out the truest level of loyalty to Coachella would be to hold it during the months of either July or August...
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Not to play devil's advocate or anything, but if this person has only missed two fests ever and really wants to go, Lake Eldorado is still available. Though I realize GV is probably hoping they can get more people to buy that option.

    Personally I would not want to buy a ticket on the secondary mark since I am coming to Coachella from so far away. I mean I know people who have done it and no problems what so ever, but like you said there are no guarantees.

    my whole crew bought tickets from craigslist...the wristbands are so advanced....you have to be an idiot to get scammed.

    the only possible way is to buy a deactivated wristband that someone claimed they lost....even then they will usually send you to will call or somewhere to get a new wristband on site and your all good.
