Livenation had tickets again for only a little bit. I was reading that Vampire Weekend AMA after having no luck in the first 5 minutes, and came back to see "A little bit left" on the page.
So say someone got one of these last minute wristbands on livenation. would they send it overnight delivery to you? you would need it by wednesday and most shippers operate weekdays only.
They send it 2nd day UPS. I scored my girlfriend's ticket during the short window when they had them last Thursday and it arrived on Wednesday this week. That said, anyone lucky enough to get one from here out will probably have to be pick it up at will call.
I bet they'll be super lenient about the "everybody needs a wristband to enter the campsite" rule. There are many valid situations where people would need to go to the box office to get their wristband.

I have been wondering the same thing. I have a friend who is seriously considering just going and trying his luck at picking up a pass there. The only way I could see that they would be able to call your bluff is if they've put in a will call booth at the entrance to he campground, which seems highly unlikely.
Judging by that If I said my wristband was at will call will the let me into the campground without it?
A friend in my group last year lost his ticket pre-fest and had to pick a new one up at will call. We had absolutely no problems getting in to the campgrounds without it, so unless this year's much different you should be fine
I think I realized why stubhub prices are so high as well.
Some asshole (maybe that guy who claimed to be making a ton of money off the festival?) has 150 tickets listed for $10,000 each. This drives up the average price to much higher levels, which allows him to sell his large stash of tickets for higher prices than he normally would have. I'm sure he also bought all of these tickets in the presale as to maximize profit. In a day or two, he's going to have to drop those 150 down to a more reasonable price, so expect a weird stubhub market the moment that happens.
I don't think those 150 tickets have anything to do with the secondary market prices this year. I don't even think they really exist.
It makes no sense to put a bunch of tickets up at a price that high, they simply will never sell. The only reasonable thing I can think is that some dude just put that up there without having that many tickets and if by some magical fluke someone buys one, he would just sell them one.
I don't understand why it's four separate wristbands. It seems like scammers heaven. Did you notice that add only had one wristband pictured for $400?
They seem to be for industry people and sponsors, so my guess would be that some people only want to go for a day and this way the company that owns them can distribute them to more of their employees if they want.
