message to the Falls organisers  
What the hell is going on with calling people "successful" in the ballot and then OVERALLOCATING tickets within the ballot. That is BLOODY RIDICULOUS. Surely if you have 10,000 tickets available in the ballot you'd AT MOST allocate 3000 people four tickets each, and somehow i doubt 2,500 people have purchased their entire four tickets each.

It takes some of us time to organise our friends to make sure we can utilise all four tickets, hence we put off buying them until today and now you've sold out the allocation. I am utterly disappointed with the system. There are going to be COUNTLESS tickets up for sale by scalpers who applied with multiple email addresses, rather than punters who have attended your festival five times in the past. Thank god most the artists are playing sideshows - as it'll probably work out a lot cheaper paying to see the five bands we wanted to see than the EXORBIDANT price you're charging anyway. And in smaller, more intimate, venues.

One utterly disappointed and disgusted former fan of the festival,
