    IF YOU STILL NEED TICKETS FOR 3 DAY PASSES, HERE U GO:

    Coachella Promoters: Tickets on sale for residents
    Bruce Fessier
    The Desert Sun
    April 13, 2007

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The promoters of the sold-out Coachella festival just found a few more tickets to sell.
    The Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice company will put an undisclosed number of three-day passes to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival for sale through Ticketmaster.com starting at noon today.
    A Goldenvoice publicist told The Desert Sun exclusively that no more tickets will be made available at the gate on the days of the festival April 28-30 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. In fact, festivalgoers will have to show their tickets just to get in the parking lots.

    Tickets are $249 plus a $3 charity contribution and service fees. No single-day tickets are available.


    Goldenvoice co-founder Paul Tollett said the extra tickets were announced first in the Coachella Valley because of concern that local residents were surprised by how quick the single-day tickets sold out.

    The days featuring Rage Against the Machine on April 30 and Red Hot Chili Peppers on April 29 sold out within two weeks of their announcement in January.

    Tollett said more than a week ago he wanted to make additional tickets available to the locals, but he couldn't figure out how to prevent them from landing in the hands of scalpers.

    "I want to come up with a plan where it's people from out there who get them," Tollett said at the time. "We have some on hold, we just haven't decided how to do it yet."

    Goldenvoice is expecting daily attendance about the same as last year, meaning about 180,000 people are expected at the festival.

    Interesting to note: "festivalgoers will have to show their tickets just to get in the parking lots"

    If these sold out today, they'll still have tickets at the Glasshouse, right?

    Just a hunch but I recon they might have thought of that. I understand you show your booking reference.

    I doubt it. I have 3 tickets for $250 a piece though. If they don't sell soon I am selling them to a ticket broker.

    i fail to see how putting these up on ticketmaster.com prevents scalpers from buying them before said locals do, as was the primary intention of this late release of tickets....do all Indio residents have the day off to buy their e-tickets from home? maybe i read that article wrong? oh well, have at it locals

    most Indio residents can't afford Coachella. It's a ghetto.

    You guys, first of all. All kinds of reporters say all kings of things and twist facts around and take things out of context or report things as facts when they are maybe's and so forth.

    They are not going to prevent you from parking if you need to pick up your tickets at will call.

    OBVIOUSLY that is a good example of wrong/dumb info being said and good reason why you should stick with what I say or post on this board or on our official website or hear from us from our official emails.

    There will probably be around the same amount of people as last year. I don't know why there are reports of less or more or exact numbers going around.. everything is sort of an estimate anyways. It's going to be crowded, big shocker. wow.

    These tickets arent on sale to only Indio residents.
    I just checked to see if I could buy some, and I can. And I live in Vancouver.
    Any prediction on when these will sell out?

    Shoreline Amphitheature has an ongoing commitment to the residents of Mt. View to give presale opportunties by buying tickets at the ticketbooth before ticketsales start. Buyer must show proof of residency, like id with local address...

    If GV wants to really give coachella valley that opportunity there's somewhere local it can be done...excluding the glasshouse of course

    Ticket brokers can easily buy tickets with forged ids.

    No one here reads the local paper. We refer to Palm Spring's The Desert Sun as The Desert Scum.

    yeah, i figured the parking lot thing was just bad info. However, I have to point out here that I am 90 percent positive Paul Tollett himself was quoted as saying the capacity would be lowered slightly this year. If I can find the quote I will post it here.

    Here it is:

    1. Music will play an extra day at this year's Coachella fest
    November 22, 2006 •• 484 words •• ID: plm2007012911490036
    By Bruce Fessier The Desert Sun The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will expand to three days in April, but promoter Paul Tollett of Goldenvoice isn't looking to set any new attendance records. "If anything, (daily attendance) will go down," said Tollett, who launched Coachella in 1999. "It will be less than last year." As reported Monday night on thedesertsun.com, Coachella will be presented Friday, April 27...

    it doesnt give any numbers, down could be by 1, they put (daily attendance) in ( ) what does that mean? that it was implied that he was talking about attendance? what? also they could be quoting bits and pieces and putting them all in one.

    I remember a long time ago a tv station showing footage of people rioting and throwing chairs while they were talking about riots that SUPPOSEDLY happened at a venue, that..........had.............NO CHAIRS

    just sayin
