Scorned Music Fans Unable to Get Coachella Tickets Unite Online
A recurring theme has been popping in the music world this year. First Ultra Music Festival in Miami sold out a record-breaking 73 days before the start of the event. Now Coachella has sold out at the speed of lightning.
Is this good news or bad news for music fans? Well, it all depends on who you ask. Those who scored those coveted tickets have been making their good fortune known to all by gloating on social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter, making ‘Coachella Playlists’ and talking about how amazing Coachella is going to be this year. Those unlucky music fans who were not able to get their hands on the tickets have been taking to the internet in a whole different way.
Are you a scorned music fan devastated about not getting your Coachella tickets in time? Looking for a place to vent Coachella sorrows with a group of like-minded music fans who are equally distraught about the Coachella crisis of 2012? I give you Coachella Tears.
After both Coachella weekend one and Coachella weekend two sold out, and many people were stuck on a never-ending standby page, not even able to access the page to purchase their tickets. The only logical next step for angry music fans was to wallow in pity with the other ‘victims.’ Coachella Tears has served as a platform for just that.
Here are some rants from Coachella Tears:
“Man I’m so bummed been on the stand by page for 3 hrs for nothing wasted my morning and now what get ripped off by some scalper! Thanks Coachella for not caring at all thanks for not going first come first served basis I know people who went on trying to buy tickets after me and got there tickets! Thanks for wasting my spring break and wasting my time!” –Thomas Brinkerhoff
“Waited forever for tickets… No luck. All those asses trying to make a profit!” – James Bordignon
“With a friend we both took plane tickets from paris, impossible to change, and we were about to buy coachella passes if it was not a rush like that. This is bad luck… So if someone want to sell two tickets for people that need them, it would be great, i guess” – Lofti Dahmane
“I’ve been waiting since 10 on two pcs, my ipad and my phone. changing broswers, clearing cookies, burning sacrifices – nothing works” – Walden Revisted
“Nochella. I created an account back in april. Unbelievable. 3+ hours of waiting with all my friends around town waiting too and nobody got through the wait, can you explain this at all…” - Dylan Mooney
