    I know Tom thinks he's being funny here, but I'm actually going to use this thread in 8 months.

    See you then.

    My friend just sold his tickets on eBay after deciding it was a no-go this year due to how poor the lineup is, and was only able break even. To anyone who missed out on the original on-sale, scoring passes from third parties should work in your favor. Granted he had weekend 2 passes, which are slightly less popular, it's a completely different story from two years ago when he had an extra pass and made a nice profit. Timing is also everything, and if people aren't going apeshit with spending more than they should over these things right away, you can probably expect third party tickets to be really cheap come April.

    I'm really glad I sold mine immediately (for face value) for that exact reason. I'm betting by lineup time, you'll be able to score passes for much less than face.

    They will be face valu eby April.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with secondary sales in march when other festivals have announced their lineups.

    Your friend is an idiot. Even W2 are going for $560 on Stubhub right now, which means after 15% fees you can still make a $100 profit. W1 are going for around $650 so $175 profit.

    The market going forward is really hard to gauge this year. I had thought that after the lineup announcement that the market would drop to closer to 20-30% above face based on the overall weakness and lack of big names, but W1 has stayed pretty steady around $625-700 on Stubhub and even jumped up in the $700-750 range in the day or two after the 2nd round of tickets sold out.

    I think it's impossible that either week will get below face value like 2013 did. That was a pretty rare exception where 3/4 of the headliners were either weak or largely unknown and there was just a huge inventory dump based on that alone. You could see it as soon as the lineup was announced...the price dropped immediately and kept on dropping.

    My best guess for close to festival time this year would be W2 being in the $450-500 range and W1 staying at least in the $550-600 range if not higher. The only factor that could change that would be if there was a huge number of people that bail close to festival time and that just doesn't seem likely like it did in 2013.

    Also think that the massive jump in ticket price in the last 2 weeks before the festival last year -- where they were going for $1000+ -- is weighing on people and will convince them to buy earlier rather than waiting til the last minute.
