Coachella 2012
Posted June 6th, 2011 - 6:19 pm by from San Diego, United States (Permalink)
Just a quick FYI

Coachella will be two identical weekends next year.

more info: http://coachella.com/

Tickets are on sale now till Friday. This will be only opportunity to get tickets on layaway.

Tent camping for weekend number one is already sold out and I suspect car camping will sell out very soon.

Pick up your tickets soon. 40 bucks down 40 bucks a month till Feb for car camping and festival tickets.

=)

I think I'm going to buy one today!!! I wasn't planning on it but I want to go... So I think if I can't make it I'll just sell it. Are you going the first weekend then?

p.s. I'm trying to move to San Diego!!! But I can't move until 2/2012.... so hopefully it will all work out and I'll be living in Cali by the time Coachella rolls around!!! :-)

Yeah I got my 1st weekend ticket and camping pass as soon as they went on sale. Pretty much everyone I have been talking to has been getting 1st weekend tickets. I think 2nd weekend will start selling hard when and if first week sells out.

Sweet, very glad to hear your migrating over to SD! =) Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out or if there is any info you need.

Coachella 2012! Woot, going to be so much fun.... in like 10 months ;)

Hey thanks Curtis, I appreciate that! That is very kind of you! :-) Feel free to shoot me any tips you might have anytime. I'm sure I'll need all the help I can get. Timing will dictate my Coachella attendance. Hopefully it all goes in my favor!

Question, do you know anything about the camping passes? It's says non-transferable but then my friend said that they didn't get their i.d. checked when entering the campgrounds....? I got my festi pass!!! But I didn't buy a camping pass because of this... Do you know if they check i.d.s. for this? Because if I can't make it I will have to sell it...

Well they have certainly never checked my ID in the past although that looks like that is changing, at least for camping passes.

Camping passes are NON transferable. You will NOT be able to purchase a camping pass without purchasing a festival pass. Please keep this in mind when planning your purchase. The person arriving first to get the camping spot must be the one who purchased the spot.

The big gotcha is that you can't purchase a camping pass with out a festival pass.... Bet that is because so many people bought camping passes with the intention of scalping them. Anyone else think they could have fit a lot more campers last year?

Well I hope you can make it but it looks like you made the smart move only getting the fest pass. Best thing is you can always find folks to share a camping spot with!
