Just wondering what I'm missing here... Sparta in big bold print at the top of the day one list?  Above Rapture, Trail of Dead, Death Cab and Sterolab to name a few.  Is this a west coast thing, or did this group turn good on me.

Looks like a lot of people are heading to Indio this year...
 
 From the Coachella "Announcement" board:

Our best year ever!
 
 Due to the popularity of this years festival, we have decided to make this announcement. Our concern is for the people who have already booked airfare or accommodations, but were planning on waiting to buy festival tickets at the box office. In previous years tickets have always been available at the box office on the day of the festival, however this year it is very possible that the festival will sell out in advance. We strongly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance to assure entry.

I just picked up my tix [ordered through w.a.s.t.e].
 
 I thought about selling these right after getting back from SXSW.
 
 I have made an amazing recovery though and am eager to do it again!

Yes, I also got my tickets in the mail this week  from w.a.s.t.e. I was very sorry to see, though, that the 22-20s are no long on the bill. (Instead, they are touring with Supergrass in the UK.) But! The Evens are on the bill now. I've been curious about Ian's new band... Also, I noticed that TV on the Radio will be in CA around May 1-2 and have a gap in their touring schedule. It would be fantastic if they were added at the last moment.

TVOTR would be a great add. I loved your review after the BC show. It perfectly summed up what I thought when I saw them the week before. I can only imagine how good they'd be playing around dusk on a warm evening out in the CA desert.

Woo-hoo!  I got mine too-- with camping area A.  Looking forward to, umm..., not sleeping?  I guess?

Just out of curiousity, what was the advantage of using WASTE to buy tickets other than the earlier sale date?

I've got camping reservations & a hotel booked. Not sure yet which way I'm gonna go, but I'm leaning toward camping. Would save a ton o' $$$$ and I think it would be a 'truer' festival experience. Then I could just pack up the camping gear & head over to Joshua Tree for a little festival recovery.

I always prefer camping.  If it's raining, just ask for an SUV when you get to the rental desk.  Then you can flip down the seats and sleep 2-3 folks in the back in cozy dryness.  (NOTE: I am vehemently against SUV's in the city, or for any non-camping, non-SUV needed use.  Please don't take this as an endorsement for those gas-guzzlers!)

I am staying in a Motel 6.  Not much better than an SUV or tent, but at least I'll have a shower.  
 
  I am NOT a camper  :)

I'm REALLY hoping that there's not going to be much chance of rain. I get enough of that right here.

 RC - I missed the official Coachella pre-sale, so I used the w.a.s.t.e option to ensure that I could get tix (they also had a pre-sale that lasted longer). The lineup looked SO good that I thought it may sell quickly. I don't think there was any significant advantage (other than backstage passes to the band of your choice   ;)  )

That's kinda funny.  I had heard that Fugazi refused to play Lollapalooza because it broke Ian's $5 ticket rule.

Dude, nothing's better than an SUV.  You can barrel through traffic, forcing yourself into turn lanes at the last second...a lot of power in them thar vehicles.
