Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival

Last week, organizers of The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the popular annual concert held in Indio, Calif., announced that one week after going on sale, all 75,000 VIP and general admission tickets were sold out. According to Paul Tollett, promoter for festival organizer Goldenvoice, it was the fastest sellout in the festival's 12-year history.

The denizens of Craigslist, predictably, are not happy. Whether the quicker-than-expected sellout is due to unprecedented demand or an increase in ticket-purchasing technology by scalpers, the bottom line is that a lot of people are screwed and willing to put in the extra effort for a trip to Indio. Nonrefundable flights from England were already purchased. The previously unemployed are now working. And melodramatic pleas are now public.

We scoured the site over the weekend to see how desperate the situation is. It's not pretty. But if you are looking to get rid of tickets, the following offers are still available. ►►
