GoogaMooga

Did you get free tickets for GoogaMooga the other day? The promoters posted the following message:

Early Registration GoogaMooga Festival is Now Full - More to Come

General admission early registration for the GoogaMooga Festival is now full. There will be more tickets released in the coming weeks. Check www.GoogaMooga.com regularly for more information regarding additional allotments of tickets.

As the official ticketing company for Googa Mooga, we [Eventbrite] are committed to offering a smooth, pain-free ticketing experience for event attendees and organizers. We failed on that [Thursday], and apologize to GoogaMooga fans and the event organizers. While there were people who were successful in securing early registration for GoogaMooga, due to high demand and some serious technical problems, our ticketing page was unavailable to many who were trying to register for the event.

We are working together with the GoogaMooga event organizers to take care of everyone who was trying to get tickets today and fulfill all pending registration requests.

Please keep an eye on GoogaMooga.com for information on additional ticket availability. We'll also be sending posts via Twitter and Facebook when these tickets are available.

They also say that "Customers who received a confirmation message, but who did not yet receive an email with confirmation of your registration, should be receiving an email shortly," and $267 "Extra Mooga" tickets are still on sale.

Still no word on what bands are playing.

Can someone tell me why anyone would drop $250 on a ticket for a band lineup which is sight-unseen and general logistics still being shrouded in mystery?

They gave me tickets after I emailed them saying I had server problems

Organizers said bands would be announced about a month before the festival. And that $250 ticket includes food/beer/wine and some other stuff.

Thanks Amy, but I'm still not feeling $250 worth of bang.

Like others have said. The initial ticket launch was a fucked up shitshow but they made up for it days after. If you wrote to them, they got you registered for tickets.

Good job GoogaMooga. See you in May

I'm kind of hoping it pours that weekend. If only for the entertainment.

But if not, I'll be there.

GoogaMooga put a wrench in the plans of the Brooklyn Half Marathon, which is supposed to happen on the Saturday of the festival.

Gonna be a great weekend on my roof, with a box full of spent D-cell batteries and a garbage bag full of piss balloons

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 12:16 PM

they did right by me with the ticketing situation, so i have to give them that. i'm guessing this isn't going to be anyone super huge like radiohead or neil young or david bowie as others have postulated, but it's prospect park and it's free, and i'm sure there will be some great entertainment. that's a win in my book.

definitely should've done a screencap of my page fail, I could've had tix in hand already

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 12:22 PM

so let's see: free or $267. hmmmm...

"that $250 ticket includes food/beer/wine and some other stuff."

Considering how bad things have been organized up until now, I would be very hesitant about spending $250. I can almost guarantee that there will be long lines for food/beer/wine and they will run out quickly. I would not risk it.

Future breaking news: Local moron falls off Brooklyn roof with garbage bag full of piss.

If it included hummus, then you'd have a bargain.

@12:16 - Haha!!! The funniest part will be when the people you assault...

A.) ...come up to your apt. and beat the life out of you

B.) ...come up to your apt. and can't find you because you're hiding in the closet like a coward

C.) ...come up to your apt., find you in the closet because you are sobbing in fear, and then proceed with A.)

Yeah Right! More like Passion Pit/ Best Coast/ Cut Copy demographic here folks

12:53 just realized... he doesn't quite like the taste of piss balloons, and prefers AAA batteries.

1:04 = definition of a sissy.
Good luck you skirt!

Yep, emailed them and I got 4 tix. Big headache, but they came through in the end.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 1:28 PM

wonder how many tix will be released in the next wave

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 1:29 PM

So i got tickets for GoogaMooga & Kraftwerk. Feels like the 0.1%.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 2:11 PM

i doubt they'll release many more tickets; if htey do, they'll probably charge like $20 per. they gave away SO many tickets to people who emailed them that there can't be many left at this point

literally everyone who i know that emailed googa mooga was confirmed for FOUR tickets each.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 2:34 PM

I emailed and so did a friend the day of and neither of us ever heard back.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 2:38 PM

Fuck it, i bought two 250 tix for Saturday. Free food and beer and a "Special" viewing area. I've gambled more away in the past and walked away with less.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 2:45 PM

Wow, my sources tell me that Sharon Van Etten will be heading on Saturday with Coldplay as supporting act.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 5:13 PM

everyone who gets in "free" isn't getting free food, retards

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 1:50 AM

who cares about the food if radiohead is playing?

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 2:21 AM

250 is not bad at all for free food and drinks, goodie bag, ny mag, and music special blah blah. Fuck i'm thinking about it now... then im thinking $250!?! wtf.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 9:53 AM

anyone who thinks it's a good deal:

i'm going to host a picnic in washington square park. there will be free food and drink from local eateries for both lunch and dinner, and ten musical acts. i'll also throw in a subscription to new york magazine (~$10 value in this journalistic climate) and a bag in which i will give you ambiguous items that i will call 'extra pooga goodies.' tickets are $220 a person.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 10:23 AM

Dinner at Lutece = $250
Waiting in line, outside, picnic style, bugs, crowds, etc. = $250

Hmmm, lemme think about dat .....

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 10:30 AM

^ sorry, forgot most of you weren't in NYC when Lutece was around ... How about Cafe Des Artistes? Better?

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 10:31 AM

Cafe Des Artistes is closed too.

^ that's a bummer. I liked that place, and if you played the menu right you could get out of there with a feast for under $100 a head.
