    If there aren't already 15k that went last year that would also like to go this year, I'm guessing there will be in the next couple of years. So then there are more people who would like to use the loyalty program than can, and we are back to where we started.

    I'm not really against a loyalty program, I'm just wondering what other ramifications it would have.

    Not everyone is going to be able to get tickets. This was never meant to resolve the fact that there is more demand for tickets than there are tickets.

    coachella.com registration would work for one year, after which every scalper will have an account here and easier access to tickets.

    the glastonbury deal or some other way to bind a ticket to the original purchaser would eliminate scalping but may not address the problem - getting tickets to glastonbury is also a clusterfuck, and there's as many available for that as there are for two weekends of coachella.

    one idea may be to allow a pre-sale AT coachella for the next year and limit it to one per person. that would rule out a lot of scalpers since they don't actually attend.

    sorry if these were already mentioned. the first page was great but the ensuing pages were drivel.

    Only accounts with wristbands that were registered to that person and then used would be valid. Again, why do you guys not get this?

    I'm going to go ahead and play devil's advocate:

    How about we assume that the people who have attended Coachella 5+ times have clearly experienced their fill of the festival, and perhaps it's time for them to step aside and for folks who haven't had as many chances, whether it's because they've previously been too young or too poor or too ignorant, to attend? Maybe if you've been to Coachella 10 times, and there are people who have never attended, or who have attended, say, 3 times (like me for example), the less experienced people should get priority. That sounds closer to the power of the 99% than the 1% to me, if we're getting all Occupy Coachella or whatever.

    Somehow I doubt this viewpoint will be popular here.

    Your theory just gives more flexibility to scalpers or anyone who hasn't demonstrated a clear propensity towards attending the festival. Once again there is absolute no way to apply this policy fairly to anyone beyond those who have attended in 2012. Therefore, there is no logistically feasible way of weeding out those who have attended one year vs. three years vs. five years vs. ten years. The only determining factor is whether you went LAST year, meaning 2012.

    There is absolutely no way to be egalitarian about this. The only way to totally verify your eligibility is having a verified wristband from this very past Coachella.

    If everyone would please shut the fuck up about this being some kind of "get rewarded for having been in attendance the most years" stupid kind of shit, I'd really appreciate it. I made it abundantly clear to anyone who can understand the English language worth half a shit that that's not what I'm proposing. Replying to Goatchella's responses is like arguing against the pro-choice movement on the basis of what an autistic Catholic thinks about abortion.

    Allotment of tickets keeps being mentioned. Surely you mean an allocation? The only allotments we get over here are full of vegetables.



    Oh wait. Now I see the connection.

    No one gives a shit how you Brits define the American language. We outnumber you at least 50 to 1. It's our language now, and frankly you don't know it that much better than the dumbshits over here.

    It won't be popular because it's stupid. What don't you get? The people that were loyal and have been going since the festival was small and virtually unknown and unprofitable are the reason it exists now. Idiot.

    That's certainly a unique business strategy: refuse to sell to your best, most loyal customers.

    There is a lot of stupidity on this board, but this might just be the all time champ right here.

    According to the book of Brokendollesque, that means she thinks that people who aren't as elite as you think you are should get first dibs, (priority) and that people like you and I would then get ours. Nowhere was it mentioned that we would be refused passes altogether, Einstein.

    Season tickets would be a lovely idea, I was really excited to do a 10th year in a row, but the tickets sold out so fast... And I was online on a fucking phone at 1015am (driving to fantastifest since midnight) - for about 45 minutes I watched this fucker refresh over and over. Till it said - sorry sold out!

    Perhaps only a certain allotment were available, but I feel like they might as well have just offered all the tickets available. If it sells out in the presale, it sells out. Not leaving those without tickets to fret for the next few months and risk getting scalped or having another heartbreak in January when it sells out instantly.

    Now some folks who say, "Hey Mugwog, you've been the last 9 years...You should let someone else go to Coachella..."

    Hey person: Shoosh! It's folks like myself who told everyone about how amazing and fun this festival was, and we kept going, bringing more friends and family to witness this event. Although in the recent years as they've improved their logistics, it seems we lost a little bit of the soul of the event. That happens with everything in LA (and the surrounding areas) so its not too much of a loss.

    Perhaps the next year they will consider a loyalty program, for at least one of the weeks. That would be fair IMO, and hopefully it could be a weekend 1 thing, most of us at weekend 1 didn't mind Rainchella. The weather wasn't an overbearing heat for once.

    Also, it would be nice if they waited till June/July so at least we could possibly save/enjoy other festivals. Also - bring back the 8 payments you greedy mcgreedsters. It's amazing how much of a difference 20-30 dollars will make a monthly bill seem less imposing.

    When you consider that this year was the first year where there's a record of passes purchased, and by whom, that makes for an even slate, doesn't it? And... according to the book of Brokendollesque, "Age and wisdom before youth and stupidity." Will that work for you, Tom?
