Thread: So what are the odds I can get a ticket during REG SALE?

  1. #1

    Default So what are the odds I can get a ticket during REG SALE?

    This has probably been brought up here before, but I'm looking for suggestions and techniques on how to get my ass into regular sale and swoop up on a ticket.

    Also, if I don't manage to get into reg sale, where are the safest places/ways to swoop up on a ticket afterwards. HELP!

    Slim to none unless you are willing to get a Shuttle pass combo or a lake eldorado pass. Maybe VIP but that's even doubtful.

    What is going to make this year difficult is that a sizable amount of tickets were sold during the presale; if you really want to go, you should do what microcuts said and also try for Weekend 2 first rather than Weekend 1.

    If by better you mean colder, rainier, and less apt to meet Thom Yorke's high standards of approval, then sure.

    But I am going weekend 1 this year.

    What actual evidence is there that says an abnormally large amount of presale tickets got sold? Sound like more bs rumors to me.

    I know it's not as hard as winning the lotto. Guess the only thing to do at this point is try...

    I'd have you and your friends try simultaneously. Seems to be the luck of the draw. Good luck.

    Also, try using multiple browsers. It's the only way I got passes last year, and hopefully it works again this year.

    I hear the best browser is Google Chrome? Or is it Firefox?

    no it's not you just bogged down the system so it took longer for everyone to get in and out of the ticket purchase.

    VIP tix for both weekends were on sale today for about 20 minutes between 11:45am-12:05pm. Someone at GV might have jumped the gun.

    Evidence? How about Presale sold out the same day within hours? Proof enough?

    Thumbs up Re: So what are the odds I can get a ticket during REG SALE?

    hands down use your iPhone/smartphone. or someone else's. i had a ton of friends the past few years who got through right away on their phones when others were waiting on a computer for hours. i've had the same experience when using other ticket providers like StubHub and Frontgate. at least try on a computer and your phone at the same time!

    2013 Tickets page is up at Coachella.com. The General On-Sale is January 29th @ 10AM.

    Unfortunately GA and VIP passes are listed as SOLD OUT for Weekend One (but not Weekend Two).

    Shuttle combo is listed as available. It would appear that the pre-sale last year was a monumental success after all.
