Coachella (more by David Andrako)
Coachella

Tickets for the first weekend of this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival reportedly sold out within 15 minutes, even as computer users reported widespread issues in attempting to purchase weekend passes.

Long wait times and site crashes plagued those attempting to purchase tickets for the more-in-demand April 12 weekend of the desert festival in Indio, Calif. Tickets for the weekend of April 19 still appeared available at the time of this posting.

There was, however, a happy ending for many. Tickets for April 12 continued to be purchased up to two hours after they were said to be sold out. It's not entirely uncommon for tickets to reenter the purchase queue after an event is said to be sold out, as not everyone who places tickets in an online shopping cart will ultimately buy them.

Coachella announced the lineup for days ago.

Scalpers made sure weekend one sold out. Whether weekend two sells out will be based on actual demand.

Stone Roses and Blur are two of the best bands of the 90's. Score one for Generation X!

"Stone Roses and Blur are two of the best bands of the 90's. "

The only good Stone Roses album came out in the '80s.

This is so stupid and happens every year. The smartest people, like my friend who does it every year, are the ones who get their plane tickets in advance along with hotels. Never buy the ticket in the presale or day of sale. Then come a few weeks before the festival they buy show tickets for less than face from some dumb fuck online who thinks he is going to be able to scalp these for high prices. Never fails.
