Re: 2017 Rumors

I dont normally agree with hilly, but I do here. Let locals get there tickets. Put in your request and hope for the best.

Maybe if you have a friend in VA who doesnt wanna go ask them to request for you, but dont just go asking randoms so you can give tickets to ants.


And are they mailing these tickets or are they all digital? Seems like it would be hard to get tickets and ship them around the country before this happens.

    They are allowing non-Cville people to attend. This is not outside the spirit of the concert.

    If you put in a request and get them great. I do not agree with asking locals to put in requests for you.

    Re: 2017 Rumors

    Only one act that I was told the other day that isn't in there, Coldplay.

    Think my source held up pretty well. Surprised they also didn't extend the time of the event longer once more acts got on the bill.

    Coldplay has a show in Seattle the night before (I know because I'm going). That would have been tough for them.

    Yeah I know. I didn't think them or Ariana Grande would hold up since she was in Hong Kong 2 days before. Which is why I didn't release those acts names in here.

    Of course non-residents can attend.

    The spirit of the fest is not to flood the request system by locals/VA Residents so they can then ship them off to random people online.

    I imagine people here would be upset by people selling them on ebay. It's essentially the same thing.

    “Random people online”? Idt classifying fans of musical acts who want to attend a benefit concert promoting unity and love, possibly donating money to charities, and being a part of something meaningful, as “random people online” is very accurate nor is it appropriate.

    Also, it is in no way the same thing as people SCALPING these on eBay. Just stop.

    That would be like saying if an Ant picks up a copy of Live Trax 5 on Record Store Day and sells it at face value to someone here someone here who didn't have access to it is the same as someone buying a copy of Live Trax 5 on Record Store Day and selling it over face value on eBay.

    No, they aren't the same thing.

    Let's say the sell them for face on ebay. You just gotta be there at the right time.

    All good right. They should just give a pair to each local resident, and let them figure out how they want to distribute them or toss them away then.

    The "Start a list so we can get them to ANTS" is just giving them to random people online.

    The top comment on their FB post announcing the event is one asking for a livestream, has over 300 likes.

    Maybe if another people like and comment they'll get the hint and do a stream. I have no problem paying a donation to watch a live stream.

    Yeah if I don't end up with a ticket, I would 100% make a donation to watch a livestream.

    They’re still people who want to spend money to travel to attend a benefit concert. Making a list of people who want to attend but weren’t chosen to receive tickets isn’t random. That’d be considered organized. It’s actually the opposite of random, but ok!

    I’m not 100% sure how the selection process is going to go for out of town online requests, but it seems like that is the only actual “random” part in all of this.

    It's taking a system of distribution and saying, "Okay, lets flood the requests , so we can distribute them ourselves."

    Not in the spirit.

    So, in the same vein, people here would prefer first and second year Warehouse members to request tickets to every show in 2018, and hand them out as they see fit, so if you're just putting in your own request, it will reduce your likelihood, but no worry, someone on ANTS will get it.

    That happens all the time. People help each other out with tickets. I see people doing it for non-Warehouse members. Senior members do it for newer members so they can get good seats at their local venue.

    Yea helping others out isn’t in the spirit of “unity”. Hilly’s right again!

    eh I'm not taking hilly's side here but I'm not sure the unity that's created when people ask for tickets they don't actually want so that other people can have them is exactly the unity that the organizers of this event are hoping to foment

    for me the bottom line is that it's a noble gesture to say that it's for cville area residents first but it's only a gesture, they really just want a full house.
