    In your scenario, I am a typical "coachella season pass holder". I'm going to renew my pass every year forever even though I don't plan on going every year and I will either sell my pass on the secondary market (at a profit) or back to Coachella (at no cost to me). I still retain my "rights" for the following year and I suffer no consequences if I don't go. The same goes for the other 149,999 passes while who knows how many thousands stand by on the waiting list. Do you not see the problem with this?
    I do see a problem which is why you should probably go back and read my entire post.

GV would be able to see that the wristband was sold to John Smith through his frontgate account, then that his wristband was registered to John Smith on coachella.com, then that the wristband had been scanned in at the turnstiles. There ya go, dude went, he's eligible: proof. The reason we can finally advocate a system like this is it took the RFID bands, the Frontgate ticket system, and the registering your RFID chip with your name and info to make verifying any of this possible.

    Now it's possible. Let's do it.
    Even though I would be excluded from the presale for not having went last year, I would be down for this. But only if a person buys a ticket through their frontgate account, registers it coachella.com, has their ID verified at Coachella, and has their wristband scanned at the terminals.

    I'm with the others, that some type of loyalty program isn't a bad idea. But take me as an example, I've been every year except 1999 and 2012. So if I didn't go in 2012, will I be penalized for not being "loyal", since I didn't scan in? I bought tickets with the intention of going and gave them to a friend instead. Where do you draw the line?

    Sure, it can be arbitrary, but then those who just missed the cutoff will feel alienated. And is the cutoff justified? Would the Coachella virgin that first attended in 2012 and then in 2013 establish more "loyalty" than me, despite me having been to the festival for 9 years more than him/her?

    I'm all for registration on a site allowing preference. But word will spread and everyone will register. Then what?

    This is a very fair proposal and I hope Paul or any of the other head honchos reads this. If this were to be implemented, I'm sure I would be entitled to a free pass for life or VIP for life considering that I have attended every one of these mofos.

    Makes my point - your 04 girl was there for Radiohead. The 12 girl was there for Swedish House Mafia. Plus she was wearing a little club dress and heels.

    Jason: sorry, but I can't help myself -- it's "license." Just the one 's'.

    Another proposal, which borrows a bit from Brandon's: have another festival comprised entirely of EDM artists in the fall (not sure when the polo season begins, but perhaps September or October -- whenever fall break happens to be) and have the on-sale for tickets to that event coincide with the pre-sale for the following year's Coachella. It could also either be paired with the limited, exclusive pre-sale for previous years' attendees (who would be verified through the process Randy's suggesting) as well as picture verification of ticketholders. Perhaps part of the registration process of your RFID chip could also entail having to upload a passport- or driver's license-style picture of yourself, and they could use something like an iPad to scan you in so that when they do so, your picture appears on the screen.

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 have actually been wondering about this myself. What if, as Randy has mentioned, Goldenvoice/Coachella legitimized the resell of tickets by creating their own ticket reselling system or use Ticketmaster's system? Another option could be to partner with Stub Hub? Major League Baseball (with the exception of the Toronto Blue Jays) has partnered with Stub Hub to ensure that tickets purchased on Stub Hubís site are legitimate MLB tickets. Goldenvoice could do the same for Coachella and possibly Stagecoach.

    Of course everyone would like to be able to purchase tickets initially at face price but the reality is that even with a loyalty program some people are going to get left out, and/or miss the opportunity, and ticket/wristband scalping is going to exist (though not necessarily related to those people who purchased tickets via a loyalty program). So why not make it so people can feel confident buying wristbands in the secondary market. I would not mind paying above face value if I knew I was getting a real wristband. I would not feel comfortable getting a wristband in the secondary market if I wasnít guaranteed that it was real. Those of us who do not live within driving distance to Coachella have to pay for a plane ticket, hotel room, and a rental car just to make it to the festival. It would suck to spend all that money (along with the price of the fake wristband) only to find out at the gate that a fake wristband had been purchase and we would not be allows into the festival.

    I know many people do not like the idea of buying tickets above face value but Coachella is for me, and many others, something we look forward to all year long and I would pay a lot of money to be able to attend. While I was able to get a GA ticket for 2013, if I had to, I would have purchase a VIP 4 Person Tent at $5200 for just myself so I could go to Coachella. Excessive maybe but every year Iíve been itís been the high point of my year and I canít put a price on that.

    It's your choice if you really wanna keep trying to rationally debate someone who clearly has no education, life experience, grasp of commerce, and who's only really doing this being he's too dumb to ever be right about anything and wanted to derail the thread.

    I was ignoring him for a reason, so that if anyone in a position to think about adopting this policy again happened to check it out they wouldn't be turned off by how quickly these supposed "loyal fans" of Coachella degenerate into a slap-fight. Every post he ever made has been immature, feather-headed gibberish. Why not go make fun of the ones in other threads and just let him wear himself out trying to start a fight in here?
    Randy, how long was your hiatus, or "time-out" from the board? What, maybe a little over a year? Amazing... All that time away and you couldn't manage to come up with any new material to stroke your ego with? Lame.

    You know, when I saw everybody trippin' on getting their Front Gate accounts all set and ready, their browsers finely tuned, and oiling up their refresh buttons so they could be all over this pre-sale at exactly 10 am, I figured I'd skip the "rush hour" phone traffic, and try to purchase later in the afternoon.

    I love how Coachella Forum Whores instantly claim someone is trolling just because there is a difference of opinions.

    Next year will be my 5th Coachella festival and I am entitled to my own god damn portapotty.
    Also, I hate waiting in line behind all the bros and n00bs. I deserve my own "Coachella Celebrity VIP Line" for the food stands. Fuck you assholes who come to their first coachella and dare stand in front of me in line.
    Every consecutive year I go to Coachella, I deserve 5 extra feet of camping space.
    Most importantly, The more experienced campers get better camping spots.
    Coachella Forum Celebrities should all get a free purple holy fuck tshirt.

    Slimwang, I hope there is more to your life than just Coachella. Stop acting like you are more deserving than anyone else that wants to get tickets.

    I registered my wristband last year specifically because I thought there might be something coming later in the form of presale or some other loyalty program.

    EDIT- And by last year, I mean like 6 weeks ago.

    if you read my post, I explain very clearly who gets access. People with registered wristbands from 2011, or next year 2011 and 2012.
    You will never ever ever have any say who gets a pass or when. Nice try.

    1 says there should be "no discrimination based on how many or what years you attended."

    2 says "get tickets into the hands of loyal fans and only loyal fans" "People with registered wristbands from 2011, or next year 2011 and 2012."

    what the fuck does that have to do with your hypocritical, contradicting posts?

    If Goldenvoice gives tickets to any certain group it is discrimination. First come first serve. Don't get caught slipping. Pretty easy.
