    I don't have any. I'm going on what I remember. I seem to remember prince being added like 2 weeks out right after it sold out. I could be wrong.

    this whole thread is fucking dumb though.

    2008 was my first year attending. Me and my girlfriend bought tickets late from Ticketmaster precisely because of the Prince add, so that's not true.

    I bought a ticket after it had finished in 2008, so it's definitely not true.

    Got a good price, though. Only face +$200. Thanks Stubhub!

    Real talk, though, if I were in charge, I would raise the price of Week 1 to $399 and make a lot more money.

    It's beyond dumb to assume that since all undercards aren't bad they are all the same caliber, and the headliners are the only thing that matters. This year's undercard is far superior than last year's. The undercard is 90% of what you spend your time seeing at Coachella and therefore matters way more than the headliners.

    I thought it was the double weekend of Coachella that killed Coachella...

    Or the Coachella Cruise that killed Coachella...

    Whatever it was, it's obviously dead. Right?

I guarantee neither you nor I could do the job they do as a team.

    and all that aside, this lineup is one of the most varied, courageous, unconventional, and well curated collections of music new, old, rare, and revered, that I have ever seen. look past the first line. it's going to be impossible to come out of this weekend unchanged as a music fan.

    so all at once, let's drop the insane entitlement and all together, just once, say it together.

    come on, deep breath

    1...2...3...

    THANK YOU TEAM COACHELLA!


    I second this post, and thank Team Coachella for 8+ years of joy.

    This thread seems to show that Prince was added BEFORE any sell out occurred: http://www.coachella.com/forum/showt...-Out-Coachella

    I walked up to the box office the morning Prince played and bought a ticket.
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    The people have spoken. Tickets on stubhub can be had for $350.

    Weekend 2 has been the redheaded stepchild of Weekend 1, especially this year.

    This has nothing to do with the presale, but more a combination of the effect of the parties being Weekend 1, as well as people feeling like Coachella is "stale" when you see it the second week.

    Weekend 1 is still selling fairly well on StubHub. While a single ticket there is available for $449, the rest are $465 or more.

    Weekend 2 has one person selling a pair of tickets for $350/each, while the rest are $375 or more.

    Keep in mind that the BUYER on StubHub has to pay 10%, and the seller coughs up 15%, so that makes it expensive on both sides. The person selling at $350 is losing $51.50 on the transaction, even though the buyer will be paying $385 after fees, which is still $36 above face.

    Want to make Weekend 2 the most popular? Make Weekend 1 all ages and Weekend 2 21 and over (with no bar restrictions). That'd get me buying weekend 2 every year.

    Your life must be miserable and joyless. The best bands usually aren't the headliners and money doesn't equal talent. I'm sure Britney spear would cost a lot of money too but I'd rather see the stone roses or anyone else on the 2013 lineup.

    I am still pissed off at the fact that I paid 10 bucks for the VIP showers (which were disgusting) and FIVE DOLLARS for a fucking cheap ass lighter that I could get at my neighborhood liquor store for 50 cents. I will make sure that I give them NO MONEY once I enter the camp/festival grounds.

    FIVE whole dollars? What is that, an hour of work at McDonalds? Tell your manager you'd like a raise so you can afford Coachella.

    "Corporatechella" is an edgy and original thing to call the festival. This OP probably also spells it "Micro$oft".

    This.


    And yes although the lighters are expensive, the price of lighters did not (directly) affect presalez to help kill coachella. Everyone knows it was bros and hipsters

    Daft Punk killed Coachella.

    That being said, the fact that there even IS a presale this year MUST mean that Daft Punk is CONFIRMED!!
