    Default Will Ticket Prices Increase as we get closer to Coachella?

    Do you think ticket prices will increase as we get closer and closer to Coachella? I remember ticket prices used to be so high before, but now they're so low. Any reason why?

    Yes I am. But all the tickets are being sold for face value. I found out a while ago I wouldn't be able to go and was excited because tickets were selling for so much. Now everyone is selling them for face value.

    Its because RATM announced that they were playing more shows.
    Before they did, tickets were being sold on e-bay between $700.00-$1,000.00
    a person. Nobody would spend that much money if they could see them in thier home town for much cheaper. so everybody is trying to sell their tickets, gain in profit, and see them somewere else.

    Close Luciano but I actually only made $670 on my tickets. I don't think any 3 day passes went for a thousand dollars. YOu are talking out of your asshole.

    I just sold tickets to The Police for less than face value.

    Anyways, does anyone think prices will increase as we get closer? Or will they just stay as they are now?

    Around the 16th prices will drop, but you better hope to fly in few days prior. It's going to be crazy trying to get tickets shipped to you within a weeks time of the concert.

    It depends on what happens with demand between now and showtime. Bigger name additions to the lineup would help stimulate growth in demand but what are the real chances of this happening? I'm not anticipating it. But, at least you can rest assured that you would get your full face value plus service charges from many a willing participant under the Tickets forum. In this regard, I wouldn't worry about losing money.

    Advanced search, click the box that says "completed listings only"

    The records only go back to March 25th... so y'all are gonna have to sort it out with an arm wrestling match or a battle in the Thunderdome.

    It's nice to see the prices have dropped for those that were patient and waited until things mellowed out.

    Remember this chump? http://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3517

    I waited.... and some how ended up with three sets of hard passes, one camping pass and about 10 new friends to meet up with at Coachella. Paid about 300 for each set of passes and 50 for my camping pass. I got way more than what I had bargin for by waiting and checking daily for tickets. So I don't think tickets will get more expensive as time draws closer. In fact, I think by this point people will have reach the conclusion that they are not going or are going to try and get tickets the day of. It's a 50,000 people event... there will always be someone in the parking lot with a friend,cousin or dog who decideds not to go and will sell there tickets for face or less.

    Lots of reasons.

    1. You failed ecomonics class in high school thus prompting you to ask us this question.

    2. You don't know how the market place works

    3. You thought people would be giving their first born to get tickets.(this already happened, so you are s**t out of luck)

    4. You thought about what you would do with your boat load of money before you even made it so you cursed yourself.

    5. Buyers on e bay are smarter than you and wont fall for high prices.(all the stupids bought tickets already so only smarties are left. People, not the candy)

    6. You are S**T OUT OF LUCK

    Haha, you guys are great


    For some reason I really thought ticket prices would get much higher as it would get closer to the concert because of the demand for the tickets. Guess I got screwed. Well, not really screwed. But it would have been nice to make some extra money.

    Guess I learned my lesson.

    Supply and demand.

    Read up on it.

    It depends on whether people are willing to pay higher prices as the event approaches, if so, the prices will rise... but will rise relative to the available supply.

    Most probably some buyers error for what he would never pay (that or just plain stupidity from someone truly desperate)

    and there will always be someone who decided last moment to show up and see if he/she/it can get a ticket, and if he/she/it has enough cash the nice scalper person will provide a ticket....I had an extra ticket last year for Sunday (Madonna) nite and you will not believe how many scalpers (by the ticket booth, by the side of the road in to the concert, by the camping entrance!) were there offering me face value. I figured f**k them and I sold the ticket face value to a kid.
