Strange the difference three minutes makes. Coachella general admission tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. PST. I made an early attempt at 9:57, expecting to be denied access but got through to the standby page and promise of likely Weekend 1 pass.
Three minutes later, at the designated time, I made a second, backup attempt from another browser. That put me in a queue page warning that Weekend 1 tix would unlikely be attainable. Whoa!
Twenty-five minutes after opening browser one, I got to buy my daughter a ticket. Damn, I would like to go, too. But there simply isn’t budget. The band lineup is fabulous.
