    My best friend missed the boat. I gave him lots of time to plan and could not commit. He finally cleared his plate. If anyone has an extra I would greatly appreciate it!

    Last year I saw several tickets available on this site and picked up one for a friend. Needed another when I got to Paso Robles and snagged it easily at the venue - both at face value rather than paying what that Craig's List scalper might want.

    Just have to show a little patience and wait until it gets a closer to festival time - plans always change and nobody will want to get stuck with an $80 ticket.

    I thought they were non-transferable. Am I wrong?

    I bought 2 tickets and my name is on both so I don't know how they check that.

    I would be more worried about buying tickets and having multiples out in the market with the same barcode. The first one scanned would be good, the rest would be rejected.

    I'll just throw out that I'm looking for two tickets for friends of mine as well if anyone has something come up. Will add a bottle or two of something tasty on top of the ticket cost.

    If you've ever been to an Eventbrite event, you will know that the person scanning the tickets doesn't make the connection to the drivers license and they won't care...there are far too many people in line for them to compare the name in size 6 font on the front of the ticket to the person holding it.

    I buy tickets for my fiancee and nobody has ever questioned the fact that my name is on the bottom, not hers.

    What Jtmartino said. I'm also in the market for a ticket. Willing to do cost + a rare bottle or two for the hook up.
