The investment that had in years past been guaranteed gold turned into shit, and the investors who previously bought blind on the belief that lineups were bulletproof are now going to force GV to deliver upfront before they commit.

    But at least a few hundred balding Britpop fans got to see Ian Brown hobble around the stage mumbling and shaking his stick, so it was clearly worth the lost revenue and reputation hit for GV.

    At this point it would be better for GV to post a "2014 PRESALE SOLD OUT" lie on the home page and hope the lineup in January pulls in a flood of buyers rather than continue this ongoing embarrassment they brought upon themselves.
    You're so cute.

    Just out of curiosity, what totes awesomez headliners did they fail to land which, as far as you are aware, were an actual possibility to play two weekends in April?

    You know, Larry, that they had the opportunity to get the Rolling Stones but opted for Blur & Stone Roses instead.

    didn't the 2011 presale last a week? i think 2012 and 2013 were the only instant sellouts.

    After seeing the Rolling Stones I'm kind of glad they weren't at Coachella.

    Jagger & friends

    Pearl Jam had time off and were doing some shows

    75 minutes of Nick Cave into Neil Young & Crazy Horse woud have melted my face off. GV have been trying to land Neil for awhile but chose RHCP because...I honestly don't know why unless it was an easy to guarantee a sell out to their stupid fans.

    Since going to two weekends, the wording has changed slightly but has always suggested there may be nothing left for the general on-sale.

    Whoops, I forgot to buy weekend 2. Oh well, I will just grab it at below market value, about 2 weeks before it takes place.

    Demand for Coachella and Stagecoach hit all time lows

    Stagecoach for the first time didn't sell out and didn't even come close to selling out. People were not impressed with the lineup and those I talked to were not happy about the bands they saw. I personally had 12 friends that have gone every year and all but 2 said no. There was no demand for late tickets...

    Coachella presale shows a similar story. There are so many festivals with great lineups that Coachella bit the 'big one' last year with the headliners. Say what you will, but if GV and crew don't bump it up they are gonna have a dying fest at their feet.

    Don't expect Coachella to sell out this year. Scalpers purchased thousands of seats for resale and they are out of the Coachella market...which is a good thing, but it will prove costly to the bottom line for GV.

    I'll be very interested to see how they respond with next years lineups.

    Wonder what dip shit got a hard on for the Stone Roses and found out only he and 5 friends had the same hard on for em.?.

    Phoenix - could fucking care less
    Blur - good sub headline band
    Stone Roses - wouldn't see em if they were playing free in the local bar
    RHCP - solid headliner

    Who gives a shit about Stagecoach?

    And until people show some sort of numbers backing up the claim that the presale didn't sell as many tickets, I'm not buying it. It's just as likely that they released more tickets in the presale after seeing how quickly they sold the past two years. For all we know, they sold more tickets in the presale.

    Also, Baily, you just requested the Dave Matthews Band for next year, so your opinions on music are about as valuable as your opinions on anything else.

    I can't wait until DP actually gets added to the lineup. It will be a different story around these parts.

    Larry, they stopped selling them after two days because of embarrassment over how poorly they were selling (and also because of residual embarrassment over the Stone Roses having headlined in 2013).

    That's certainly a more logical inference to draw than the idea that they stopped selling after two days because they successfully sold out of a predetermined allotment.
