Where To Find Tickets For The 2011 Coachella Music Festival
If you're a fan of music festivals, chances are that you've heard of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The Coachella music festival in Indio California is one of the largest music festivals in the United States, and features a wide variety of musical artists. Arcade Fire, Kanye West, The Strokes, and Kings of Leon are the headliners at the 2011 Coachella music festival, and are playing alongside tons of other music artists for three days in April. Though it sounds like the perfect music festival that you might want to attend, Coachella 2011 is sold out. Don't worry though, there are a couple of options that may help you find tickets for Coachella 2011, even though it is sold out.
The Coachella 2011 festival sold out very shortly after the initial lineup was announced. If you planned on getting your Coachella 2011 ticket a couple weeks after the lineup came out and tickets went on sell, chances are you became disappointed when the website informed you that the music festival had sold out. There's no reason to panic, and there are still ways that you can purchase your Coachella 2011 tickets. The downside is, that these tickets will most likely be more expensive than the original cost of the ticket. Here are a few options:
Search ebay - A simple search of ebay for Coachella 2011 tickets brings up 198 results. The vast number of available Coachella 2011 tickets ranges in price, with the lowest cost that i've seen at $461.00 and the highest cost i've seen being $3,500.00. The cheaper tickets being sold for the sold out music festival are the ones that you have to bid for. The prices for the "buy it now tickets" are somewhat stacked and are probably a little pricier than what you'll have to pay for. If you really want to go, you may have to make a sacrifice and shell out quite the fee for the sold out Coachella tickets. If you want to know where to find tickets for the 2011 Coachella music festival, I suggest looking at ebay first. Make sure the person you purchase tickets from has a good ebay rating. It would be terrible to purchase fake tickets and spend a lot of money for nothing.
Search Craigslist - Craigslist is another possible source for finding sold out tickets for the 2011 Coachella music festival. You should be able to locate several people selling Coachella tickets, and the closer that the festival dates approach, the more tickets you should be able to find. The price may go up the longer you wait, so if you're going to get your ticket, you might want to buy them soon. I would suggest that you first search places close to you for Coachella tickets, then search around Indio California if you're unable to find any.
Search For People Scalping Tickets - This should be a last attempt for Coachella 2011 tickets, if you're very serious about going. If you're unable to locate any tickets online, there should be people outside of the festival selling tickets for a spiked fee. Be careful when purchasing these tickets, as a lot of them may be fake. Make sure that your sold out ticket for Coachella 2011 that's purchased from a scalper is legit. Be careful and know what the actual Coachella 2011 ticket looks like. This should only be done if it's absolutely necessary, and still, you're not guaranteed to find anyone outside of the festival selling tickets. I've seen several scalpers selling tickets outside of other music festivals, so it may be possible.
I wish you the best of luck in finding tickets for the sold out Coachella 2011 music festival. I hope this guide helped you discover where to find tickets. If the simple steps I've suggested of finding a ticket don't pan out for you, there is always the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The lineup hasn't been released yet, but I've offered several Bonnaroo rumors in another article I've written.
