    Default I guess Weekend 2 is going to be pretty cool this year

    There's about 2,000 unsold tickets on Stubhub alone. And tons of people trying to offload W2 tickets on Facebook/Craigslist/Forum.

    Might be like Coachella's of old perhaps?

    Capacity is what, 85,000? You won't notice if a few thousand people aren't there.

    It's less than that, it's about 65,000 wasn't it?

    Even so there's a lot more after market sites out there. And all the people who suddenly can't make it. And then people who scalp tickets for a living... I'd say there's enough evidence to say this year W2 will be 'comfortable' at least...

    There is a maximum occupancy of 95,000 and it hits that every year from everything I have read. They sell 75,000 wristbands and then there are the workers, staff, etc. A few thousand isn't going to make a difference at all. Also, I am willing to bet after weekend one happens, those stubhub sales for weekend two are going to spike.

    No doubt, but not until the prices fall below face value because people are selling them at a loss already.

    I guess I'll do the same as last year and pick up a ticket for $150 and do it again./

    Last year I didn't, and this year I don't... but for a cheap ticket? I'll leave work at 4 on Friday and haul ass to Indio and stay for the remainder of friday, party on saturday, and then leave Sunday after the peppers back to Vegas and go work Monday maybe an hour late >_>
