    Default Price bump $24 this year, what will they do with an extra $2M?

    Since something like 2004 it has always been $269, but the fees and shit have gone up every year. 2012 total was $224 for me, which means they only raised the price $20-30 for 2013. So Coachella Forum, what will Goldenvoice do with that extra $2million?

    I can't believe no one has ever mentioned the price increase before.

    They're using the extra $2 million to hire hundreds of midgets wearing costumes covered in LED lights that will be dispersed into the crowd.

    Similar to the way the balls were released onto the crowd during Arcade Fire's performance a few years ago. Only this one will be way more awesome.

    I think you're embezzling. $24 x 75,000 x 2 = $3.6 million. WHERE'S THE OTHER $1.6 million?

    You're right, I apologize. I also forgot to mention that each attendee will be allowed to take one of the little ones home with them. What you do with him/her after that is up to you.

    Its all fun and games till you have a lil person shitting on your rug cuz you forgot to potty train him.
    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    Will there be directions on how to get them to glow again, once the show is over? I need to know if it's worth the effort or not.

    Have AEG paid off their little un-insured Michael Jackson O2 Arena experiment from 2009 that went sideways?

    btw thanks to guyintuscon and robin, your additions to the thread are very well rounded. I wanted a good CoachellaForum troll/rage thread, and I got one. Along with the midgets, that shits hilarious
