Thread: Will I be able/allowed to sell a Coachella ticket outside the venue?

    Default Will I be able/allowed to sell a Coachella ticket outside the venue?

    Hi there,

    First time Coachella attendee here, travelling from Cape Town South Africa. After initially buying early bird tickets, we then decided to upgrade to a hotel package, thinking it would be rather simple to sell the old ones. It wasn't.

    How easy would it be to sell Coachella tickets on Friday, outside the entry gates? Is this allowed/legal? Is this common practice? We're not trying to make a profit, we'd just like to recoup our costs.

    Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    If security spots you trying to sell the ticket outside the festival they'll confiscate both the one you're selling and the one you're wearing.

    It would be hard, people don't really stand by the gates anymore trying to buy tickets like they used to. Try the Palm Springs Craigslist when you get in town. You're probably gonna have to sell them for under face value. Does everyone in South Africa really love Rodriguez?

    If you really want to get rid of it, you'll probably have to sell it below face... I have a few friends hoping to score some last minute below face passes. If you're still selling them, PM me!

    I'm completely serious though. If you try to sell it within sight of security they will confiscate both.

    I was merely handing my friend his and they tried to hassle me about it.

    Problem is that you need a ticket to get anywhere close to the venue, so your potential market is people with tickets buying extra tickets or tickets (or thickets) for their friends.

    Try selling them on Craigslist when you get into town I'm sure you'll be able to sell them. I wouldn't try at the venue since you have to (or suppose to) have your bracelets before you arrive. They have a bunch of check points.
