    Default *** OFFICIAL FRONT GATE PRESALE FAILURE THREAD ***

    Already have 6 browsers open.

    One is offering me to actually BUY 2013 tickets (not joking), one has me in the waiting queue, and the other 4 are insisting I have to wait until 10am.

    BANG UP JOB ALREADY FRONT GATE

    Has it occured to you that you and all the other dummies with multiple browsers open are clogging up the system and contributing to the "problem"?


    Probably not.

    Thanks for letting me know that the waiting room was open. I got my weekend 1 ticket + camping pass using safari, Firefox wouldn't display the captcha to enter the waiting room.

    I used Chrome and had no problems whatsoever, took me less than 5 minutes total time to purchase my passes. I suspect at least some of these problems are originating somewhere between your chairs and your keyboards.

    IE doesn't bring up a Captcha screen at all, switched to Chrome and I'm in a perpetually refreshing waiting screen.

    Has anybody who went into the waiting room early been able to get a ticket yet? I may have been 30 second to 1 minute early.

    Same here, about a minute or two early and everything went smoothly. I had iMac, iPad, and PC on the waiting page. iMac got in first, with the others right behind.

    Best ticket experience yet, and I even had two panic moments. On firefox, couldn't get through weekend one until I went to weekend 2 first and entered that captcha. Then it told me three or four times that car camping was sold out. Then it finally added it. Last year took hours, this year was minutes! Good job!

    I think we can all agree that Archie Bunker is the biggest failure here.

    December 31 - Matthew Dear/The Sword/Pallbearer
    January 30 - Behemoth
    February 3 - Zola Jesus
    February 10 - 1349
    February 28 - A Place To Bury Strangers
    April 6 - Swans
    April 10-12 - Coachella
    April 17 - Clark/Nosaj Thing
    May 8-10 - Austin Psych Fest
    May 15-17 - Psycho California
    June 24-28 - Glastonbury

    yeah, originally it said that car camping weekend 1 was sold out (at like 10:10)... knew that was BS and tried again, viola! Very easy process otherwise, especially compared to past years.
