Chloe, I'm 14 too and my name is Chloe too xDD

OMGOMGOMG Kanye West and Coldplay at the same festival? I MUST be dreaming.
But as amazing as this sounds, I don't think it's worth it, you know the flights and apparently tickets cost like $350 or something.

AS MUCH as I want to go, I'll probably wait for them to come to Melbourne.

2010 TICKET PRICES

Event-only ticket (Camping NOT included):

* Event-only ticket - $350 (inc gst) + $10.20 booking fees (inc gst) = $360.20 online or $362.20 for phone bookings (additional $2 fee).

* Carbon Offset Event-only ticket - $353 (inc gst) + $10.25 booking fees (inc gst) = $363.25 onlineor $365.25 for phone bookings (addition $2 fee).

Event and camping ticket:

* Event and camping ticket - $450 (inc gst) + $11.80 booking fees (inc gst) = $461.80 online or $463.80 for phone bookings (additional $2 fee).

* Carbon Offset Event and Camping ticket - $453 (inc gst) + $11.85 booking fees (inc gst) = $464.85 online or$466.85 for phone bookings (additional $2 fee).

Not cheap! it's the second most expensive festival in the world after Fuji Rock in Japan. if they do manage to secure coldplay and kanye or even just one of them, the prices will go up as both of them will demand high appearance fees (i know you guys probably like to think coldplay are humble and not greedy but when you're stadium trotters its hard not to be like that)

just out of curiousity. assuming the rumours are true. how many of you are actually willing to spend $400+ just to see coldplay at this festival? and ignore the 30 to 40 other awesome indie bands at the fest over the 3 days?

Yes, I am. I wouldnt think twice.

This would be fantastic. Road trip up to QLD to see the most amazing band in the world. Tickets are pricy, but I'm saving up now (just in case).

How quickly do you think tickets sell out?

last year was 2 hours. i'm expecting the same this year. basically you log on and wait in line for your turn to buy ( in a virtual sense)

It is really, really pricey, but I'm saving my bucks.

From what I've read, two hours sounds about right for ticket sales to exhaust. Every year since Slendour began, tickets have sold faster and faster.

Good evening (or morning, if you're down under). We're pleased to report that Coldplay will headline this year's Splendour In The Grass festival in Queensland, Australia.

Tickets will cost $390 (inc gst) Event + $120 (inc gst) Camping + booking fees, which gains entry to the festival for 3 days, from Friday 29 July to Sunday 31 July (the actual date of Coldplay's show is yet to be announced). They go on sale at 9am AEST on Thursday 5 May through Moshtix or by phone on 1300 GET TIX (438 849).

ps - The festival takes its name from a line in a William Wordsworth poem, which you can read here.

I think I'll probably just wait until they inevitably return next year touring their new album. $400-500 is more than I'm willing to pay just for four bands I like.
