The crowd during Arcade Fire's set, Coachella 2007.
So it's true: Coachella 2011 has officially sold out, and the scalpers, resellers, flippers and general assholes have come out in droves on the Internet.

Currently, three-day passes are going for as high as $2,798 each, and even car-camping tickets are topping out at $799.

I can only imagine people paying these prices have never been. The polo field is HUGE and there is no way these scalpers are going to unload the glut of tickets they purchased. I have a feeling we will see prices drop drastically and a lot of scalpers at the event selling them for whatever they can get.

Resell a house for more than you paid and you are an entrepreneur.Resell junk for more than you paid and you get a TV show.Resell tickets for more than you paid and you are a "general asshole"? really??

The scalpers are trying to sell tickets that are on lay away. Don't take their shit. Demand that Golden Voice stop the lay away plan for ever!!!!!

It's not resale, it's scalping. Access to cultural and entertainment events should be a right of low-income groups, and scalping removes this right. You're making a terrible comparison because this is a monopoly. I have the option to buy other junk or another house if I don't like your price. I don't have the option to buy Coachella tickets from anyone but a scalper who will charge me $1k. It's illegal in most states. Identification of ticket buyers should checked to prevent this from happening.
