If you're up front at the main stage from when the gates open, you'll miss great shows from Natalie Prass, S, Sharon Van Etten, Alvvays, Run the Jewels, and many more.
Yeah I know, it's definitely a sacrifice. I've already seen Run The Jewels and I'm hoping to catch Alvvays another time. There's just so many of my favorite bands on the stage that day (Courtney Barnett, Future Islands, Tame Impala, Kendrick Lamar) that I'd love to be close for.
But how do you do things like eat and drink and pee?
I still owe you one from last time. I brought it to sasquatch then never saw you. Then moved and now it's in a box somewhere. I'm moving again so I hope to find it in the process. If I don't I'm basically screwed because the laptop that I made it with died, so I don't even think I have the playlist anymore.
Anyway, I'll do my best to get it to you in the next 4-400 weeks. Sorry for the delay.
While stubhub generally pisses me off I used them to buy two Life is Beautiful wristbands last year (for well below face value) and they were pretty great. Delivered to my hotel in Vegas in less than 2 days and everything was in order. I was slightly worried one wasn't going to make it in time and emailed them and they responded that if it didn't show up they would ship another one or solve the problem some other way, but it made it later in the day.
While they are just a scalper fest, I'd trust them way more than some dude off Craigslist.
Further research indicates that Chance the Rapper, Randy Newman and Justice were added like a month after the line up came out. I'm sure there will be a couple additions at some point, but I wouldn't expect anything major (even though I would be thrilled if they added someone to poop J. Cole from the headliner spot).
If last year is any indication you should be able to get cheaper tickets off Craigslist. Mine came to $353 total in presale. Hell it wouldn't surprise me if there are some cheaper tickets popping up in the next couple weeks because people didn't like the lineup.
That being said I do not understand the ticket buying public so I guess there is a chance this could sell out, though I doubt it will be very fast.
Also it's great to keep extra smuggled booze in there in case someone leaves a mickey of vodka on top of your bag and then security sees it and searches all your bags and takes all your smuggled booze. Not that that happened to me or anything.
