I have seen many on ebay for a hefty price, figure person is making a hundy a ticket. I never figured scalpers would do festivals because generally they never sell out. hope these scalpers lose their ass, you can walkup and buy tickets for much less.

- at the office last yr I watched a couple get upgraded to VIP by paying the difference. Extra 275-300....

Get there. Get in. Ask around. I watched it happen.

If you have $$$ for it there and ask.... They'll do it.

Not sure why the original post is being referred to as "acceptable practice" but I can assure you that trying to sell tickets or any other Festival related goods for a profit on the Festival site is not acceptable and will be addressed. Bootleg goods are also not allowed.

Is it the 17th yet?

Wanee on!!!!!!

I used acceptable as sarcasm knowing damn well that doing that was a major no- no....

A creative and highly visible way to shine light on the bold scalper. Certainly NOT mocking your appreciated work here.
