I've seen a few people saying that they won't have enough money to buy tickets when they go on sale. I've also seen some people say that they are only going to one weekend.
So, here's my plan. People that are only going to one weekend: post which weekend you are going. If someone want's to go to the other weekend only, then you can split the 2 weekend pass and save some money.
People who want tickets but don't have cash right now: I'll buy you a ticket and you can pay me back when you get the money, so you won't have to deal with scalpers should it sell out.
People who can't afford a ticket: We will all try and win tickets and maybe you can go for free. Top priority goes to joshatemycookie and Rustuuuu since they gave away free tickets last year to boarders and other nice people.
That's a super good idea Davers. Combining on the passes will save people a lot of money! I'm already heavily on the hunt for contests and have some solid leads on small ones that won't get too many entries. With any luck, I'll be able to win and any passes other people win can go to people who are far less stupidly diligent about their contest entering.
I could only attend Maysquatch, for the record. July weekend I've got one of my best friends getting married up in Bellingham!
If I had a job or any sort of income I'd definitely be down to split a pass with someone, but as of now I need to stay realistic and pray for a contest win. If I get a job and they're still for sale I would be happy to split it with someone though!

How did they do the fundraiser thing last year to try to bring those Coachella people up? We should set up something like that again. I'd be willing to throw in 10 or 20 US dollars to help these good people out.
Unfortunately, I might only be able to buy a ticket for May right now (barely). May is the #1 choice because most of my friends are attending this festival. I have not bought my ticket yet. So, if anyone wants to hookup and is planning on attending Julysquatch, we could save some money. Preferably someone living in Canada.
But after listening to some of the artists from Julysquatch, I have decided that I must try to attend both festivals. The talent is mind-blowing. Unfortunately, I can't afford it..
I just got back from a few months of backpacking through Europe so I have a few hundred dollars in cash but am currently not working, so buying music festival tickets shouldn't really be my first priority but... It's and missing these weekends would kill me. Hopefully I'll be working by next week - but I am really not sure.
I don't expect anyone to buy tickets for me, but do you know of any radio stations giving away tickets to people who live outside the US? I live in BC and have attended the last 2 years.
Who are we fundraising for? I'm confused. Or is it just a general fund for awesome people who are short on cash?
At least Jeffatemycookie and Rustuuuuuuuu. They both gave away several tickets last year and have said they don't have the money to get one this year. I know Rustuuuuuuu is certain he will win one (and he probably will, lucky bastard), but sometimes fate needs a backup plan.
