    I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...

    With that kinda money Paul Tollett can probably afford to buy a hooker and a gun.

    Gross numbers aren't very interesting

    Grammar change.

    I'm the only reason why it's even known that they sold 7,000-9,000 VIP passes per weekend the past couple years. Definitely information that is useful.

    Did you get that ticket number from somewhere or are you just taking 48 mil and dividing it by the price of tickets? I thought they only sold 60k tickets.

    It definitely didn't feel like 60k

    They pulled in almost $97mil between the 3 weekends.

    Stagecoach did $18.6mil with 63,400 people per day

    Each Coachella was about $39mil with 96,500 ticket holders per weekend. 100,000 are allowed onsite including staff/guests/band/band crew/media/festival crew/food staff.

    $7 million($799 times 9,000 VIP ticket holders per Coachella weekend)
    $32 million($375 times 86,500 regular GA per Coachella weekend)
    -----------------
    $39million

    IMO, when you factor is all the beer/concession/shuttle/hotel packages Goldenvoice must be in the $150million range for the 3 weekends.

    This is true. TomAZ's weekend 1 beer purchases were roughly equivalent to the GDP of a small central American nation.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, Youre funny, this isnt 2007 anymore. I think you missed the story that had them bumping it up to 75k, and then being able to go even higher than that. also, did you skip 2010 when there was more than this 96k on the polo fields cause a shit ton snuck in?
