    Default Will you buy the 2016 pre-sale?

    Do I have enough money/credit for this?

    What if the price goes up?

    Was there not some "buyer's remorse" when the 2015 line up came out?

    Will the secondary market continue to be friendly to "last-minute Larry" and "last-minute Lois?"

    Is it time to move on?

    I was planning on 2016 being my last presale but after the awesome weekend I had this year I feel rejuvenated about the whole thing.

    I WOULD, however, we buy our tickets/hotel/shuttle passes in a bundle with Valley Music Travel. They only go on sale once the lineup is out, and they don't sell quite as quickly.
    Anything is possible...

    We went to the first weekend this year and it was a lot of fun. I was not one of those people down on the lineup at all. I could understand where some people were coming from being disappointed when the lineup was announced but there was more than enough for me to enjoy a lot of sets. I am expecting the same thing for 2016. So I hope we can get tickets at the pre-sale even though that seems to get harder every year.

    voted yes, but for the first time it will be lineup dependent. That and I might not take the Thursday and Monday off from work. To many things to do!

    How would you be buying pre-sale if you're waiting on the lineup? Pre-sale's very likely next Friday (May 22nd). The lineup's not out till like January 5th (that's my guess). Do you mean you are planning to buy Coachella 2016 tix, but only after you see the lineup and are sufficiently happy with it? So probably StubHub or the like if the lineup passes muster (very unlikely to get tix when they're briefly on sale after the lineup drops).

    My wife and I have mostly done the VMT thing each year and stayed at one of those over-priced resorts. In '09 it was like $2200 all in for two; in '13 they were around $3000 for two.

    This year we just stayed at a relatively inexpensive Indio hotel and took the shuttle in. Much cheaper than the VMT packages, and really about the same as far as accommodations go (so the resorts are fancier, so what?). If we do the hotel thing again we won't go back to the VMT packages. It's somewhat analogous to VIP vs. GA at the venue -- the extra amenities are not worth the extra money. One thing the VMT packages can do is get you tickets if you are unable to in the pre-sale or the even less likely-available regular January sale in tandem with the lineup.

    Oh, and Twattycakes is wrong -- the VMT packages have been available way before the lineup drop. We bought ours for '13 like in June of '12 or something (and they've also had the installment plan for payment, like you can do for pre-sale tix; that's how we did '13).

    Next year we are planning on camping for the first time (how I talked my wife into that is a bit of a mystery, though probably it was the drugs). So it seems we're devolving or whatever in our dotage.

    Buying pre-sale via payment plan, will sell if i don't like it. It is easy to get face value on stub hub immediately following the sellout once the poster is released. It's the greedy fuckers that get burned and have to take a hit last minute.

    I'm pretty sure 2013 was the last year VMT had presale packages, unfortunately. We couldn't preorder any packages for 2014, at any rate. It's true, it is pretty expensive to stay at one of the resorts, but it's our only vacation we get to take all year, so we kind of make a big deal out of it.

    I better get tickets this year for both weekends or I will be pissed again. And you don't want to see an old gay guy pissing. It's not pretty.

    The presale is when the excitement starts to build again. Thinking about getting a house close to the polo fields, but I'll be buying a CC Pass just in case. Lot 8, St 104 S. 4ever.

    Still the best fest in North America however it's lost a lot in creativity and experience . Take notes from edc and burning man about building wonderland in the desert . Why are the artists so much worse than they used to be ?

    We did the Homewood Suites VMT package in 2014 and we absolutely did the presale/layaway option. I didn't bother to look during the presale last year but I find it really hard to believe they'd discontinue people from being able to make monthly payments on those? All things considered, I'd much rather go back to doing Lake Eldorado again, if we end up even going again.

    You'd think they would have made provisions to deal with this, but I'm not sanguine.
