That took no time at all. $350 CDN is below face value. There are lots of tickets around, and I expect them to get cheaper as the days tick by. Anyone who wants to go shouldn't have a problem this year.
I still have two available. I'll take $600 for the pair if anyone is interested. Downtown Seattle but willing to get creative for those outside of the area.
Weenie - original buyers fell through. I guess they got antsy and found options elsewhere. If you're willing to wait to physically receive them (still haven't got the email that they've shipped yet), they're yours. Let me know as soon as you can, we can PM details from there.
I've got two buyers lined up as it is, but also a chancey chance the chiggity champ of champion chancellors that might fall through since sale is still pending receipt of wristbands (maybe they get antsy and find another seller, I dunno). If they both fall through I'll let you know (2nd buyer is a contingency plan to the first). FWIW, I'm looking to sell these together rather than separately.
If you're going this weekend, get there early on Sunday and check out Bo Ningen. The clarity from this video gives you a good idea of their sound, but doesn't capture how abrasively loud and awesome they were.

I'll have two Sasquatch wristbands to sell (once they arrive). Not looking to make any money on these. $668.50 gets you the total package (includes shipping). I'm near downtown Seattle and would prefer to arrange pickup within the same vicinity. Message me if you're interested.
If your only concern is money, it is probably cheaper for 2 people to fly to LA and rent from there. Last year our rental from LAX came to just over $200 to and from Coachella. Flights were $250 return for me from Bellingham for myself. It is also way faster than driving all the way, obviously.
Wait, Davers...your telling me it's faster to fly? Mind, blown.
Jokes aside (appreciate the response btw), we have 3 weeks off, we are planning to spend the first two driving down, stopping in Seattle, Portland, San Fransico, DisneyLand for 2 days and then palm springs to relax at a friends, and then to the festival and back home. We will need a car for that amount of time --I have no car which makes this difficult. Budget, Avis and some others say unlimited kilometers/miles for that amount of time for under $500, I was just wondering if they are truly unlimited ( as Enterprise specifically says not including Cali). I know, I could like, call them. But I hate phoning anyone. So I was wondering if anyone knew.
I had no idea flights were so cheap though. So if all else fails that is good to know. Thanks.
I looked into making a road trip out of this year's journey using my company's discount with National. Was $600 for a week but with limited mileage - adding mileage almost doubled the price. And that didn't even account for the fee for leaving it in CA since I'm flying back.
I've found that Ontario is a great destination for getting into Coachella. Only about 90 minutes, pretty cheap and convenient flights from/to Seattle, and renting cars there has been great too. Granted it's through my company account, but I ended up with a SUV from National for $300 for 5 days, which is perfect since my car is also my sleeping space again this year. Not to mention the drive to Indio once you get out of the Inland Empire is pretty scenic.
Speaking from experience, that thing is pretty enormous (totally enormous perhaps?). It was big enough to serve as our campsite marker at Coachella last year, until I had the completely ingenious and certainly never-before-thought-of idea to bring it to Dinosaur Jr. I was pretty, pretty, pretty proud of myself that day.

'Bout time we got some more Fuck buttons enthusiasts on here!
I also laughed out loud picturing a ghost buster getting kicked out of a Toadies show.
I only recently discovered them, listening to the newest album. Love it. How does their previous stuff compare?
I made a homemade proton pack that shot out silly string instead of proton streams. Supposedly I got kicked out because tried to throw it over the barracade. I don't believe it because no one else saw it, including my friend who was up near the front, moshing in his homemade Zuul costume.
I lurk on here every now and then. Sometimes I post. It's usually not very important. I think I might have done this once before.

Spending money that should go to a wedding on both Sasquatches and W1 Coachella instead. If you're heading to Coachella and looking to meet another Seattle area person, look for me. I'll have bloody marys and a slip n slide.
The only thing Coachella has going for it is giant LED lights and expensive headliners. I don't know why I got caught up in the hype. The attendees are pure fucking garbage compared to the goofballs at Sasquatch. We know how to fucking PARTY up here.
I also have to add on behalf of my friend who celebrated her birthday at Sasquatch this year (we were wearing purple party hats on Thurs & Sat), you gave her one hell of a 34th birthday. But don't tell her I told you her age.
I’m a lurker but a 5-time attendee who’s still thinking about his best Sasquatch experience yet.
I never partied past 3am in any of my 4 previous experiences. I saw the sun come up twice this weekend. I befriended a 20-year old lesbian (I’m 33) and became her hetero Canadian powerdyke life partner. I hugged a guy at Little Dragon who shortly thereafter dropped trou and repeated a scream of “Fuck! Pants!”, which became my mantra Sunday night>Monday morning. I watched too many amazing performances to keep count of. I am not a dancer; I danced more this weekend than I have in my life combined (I’m 33). I did beer bong shots out of a plastic flamingo. I saw The Fucking Roots.
I may or may not have spoke to you, partied with you, run into any of you this weekend, but as part of my collective Sasquatch experience, I feel compelled to tell everyone on this board, lurkers and regular posters alike: thank you!
Thanks for the help! I always thought you had to have insurance to replace a lost ticket - I'll let her know. Hopefully it works out.
On a side note, in response to HG's comment - does that apply to getting back in the campground after leaving the venue? Sounds like a possible clusterfuck to get back in if everyone has to show tickets/wristbands again.
They can say that, but did anyone actually have their tickets checked upon entering the campground? I know I didn't. We could have just been 2 cars full of people here for the party. At least in previous years you had to buy a camping pass, last year you could have gotten in for free. One of our neighbours wasn't attending the fest because she sprained her ankel and didn't want to walk around all day and sold her ticket to a friend. She still camped though.
I have a friend coming up from AZ who believes she lost or misplaced her ticket. Rather then by a new one, she's thinking about just coming up for the camp and maybe get lucky enough to buy one from someone at the show. Worst case scenario - she camps all weekend and still has a blast.
I'm a sasquatch veteran, but missed last year. Are they checking tickets for everyone upon entry now? Is the wristband requirement in the campsite heavily enforced now? My plan was just to smuggle her past the entrance under some blankets if need be, but wondering if she'll have a hard time at the campsite nonetheless.
I tried the search function for a answer, this was the most I could find. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post; thanks in advance for any helpful insight.

Although there's still a gap in dates during Sasquatch weekend, Fleet Foxes just announced tour dates with early May shows in NW including Seattle and European dates bookending Sasquatch dates. Seems pretty unlikely.
