Virgin Mobile FreeFest tickets are back on sale

For some reason, I was under the impression that all the pre-sale tickets for the Virgin Mobile FreeFest sold out. They have not. They are currently up for grabs. Good luck!

Sorry Sam, they're not. I was just there after I got McCartney tickets (late Dad's day gift).

They were. Seems they went even faster today.

Got mine!

I couldn't get any and I was on right at 10am. I'm a little mad actually.

yeah they're all sold out
you would think that ticketmaster would release more tickets for the non-virgin mobile users.
Selfless bastards they are!
theres a possibility of more tickets being released. I'm hoping to get 2 of them.
I wsh u luck

And so it begins... the hundreds of Virgin Freefest tickets up for sale on Stubhub, etc. One of these users says they have up to 39 tickets available!
I'm glad I got mine, but if I didn't I would be extremely pissed about this. Check it out:

I didn't get any, and I'm pretty pissed about it. It's pretty neat that they've got free tickets on sale for $190, none of which goes to any of the bands.

On the site, it says if you don't comply to the 2 ticket limit, they may revoke all your tickets. I wonder if they will enforce that. None of the people on StubHub could have the tickets in their possession at this point. Not that I would pay 100+ for FREE tickets. Some people posted their tickets for $600 each...what?!

As of this moment the highest price ticket on stubhub is $695.00.
This is ridiculous.
You know if you didn't pay any these cretins anything more than 15% the face value, or these $50 as they were free, they go away or at least be less greedy.

Personal, if I was interested in going and couldn't tickets for free I'd boycott and bitch to Virgin about how their ticket sellers operate.

Have any of you complained to Virgin or someone who remotely can do something about this?
