I know. It's insane. I think though that this event is 18+ could explain why it sold out so fast. The kiddies need to go somewhere.

I remember seeing him in Ibiza last August when he opened up for Tiesto. He was good then and I guess through word of mouth his popularity grew. But the crowd he brings in now is the new wave of EDM followers. Meaning neon, jumping for no reason, lack of courtesy.

Now I hope something else is going else where in the city because it won't be so crowded.

Dear AVICII fans and friends,

At Night rarely gets heavily involved in ticket sales unless we are part of the event. This has happened a few times in the past and results have been great with sold out shows long before the date of event. For New Year's Eve 2011/2012 in NYC, we were facing a huge challenge as we booked as big a space we could to allow for as many fans to come to the event as possible. Pier 94 has a legal capacity of around 6 000 people (including staff, media and VIP attendance).

We had never before tested our online reach potential this way and since we wanted to make all AVICII fans aware of the event, we went all in with marketing and social promotions. The impact was insane. Within seconds of releasing tickets, our own site www.aviciinye.com and a ticket partner site www.clubtickets.com crashed hard and were difficult to get back up, despite both services' promise with preparations in bandwidth.

We were also promised that www.wantickets.com would be live at release but this was omitted in the process and can only be regretted now. However, I was quick to get on the case and get this alternate source of tickets up asap, but not completely without problems. AVICII was not 100% aware of the situation - in fact we released about 2500 tickets at the pre-sale price of $60. In this I need to explain that this was a price set for the dedicated fans who follow Tim intently enough to have heard about the pre-release on Facebook and blogs. We wish we could have priced the whole concert at $60 or less but due to the fact that we have a huge space, insane productions and a crazy amount of staff to take care of all this as well as the big number of guests - all on New Year's Eve on Manhattan - we would not have been able to turn the budgets around to do it, not even at self-cost.

These cheap pre-sales all obviously disappeared immediately and we were left with the choice of a) letting go the rest of the tiered tickets (ranging from $85-$165, which again AVICII didn't know when posting on Facebook) or b) stop sales. Seeing as there were still so many fans wanting tickets, and we didn't want to wait for the word to get around to allow for scalpers to get hold of them - we took a split second decision to let all the tiered tickets go at once. Tickets were thus sold on a first come
first serve basis like with any event in high demand, and completely sold out within the next hour. Even the Wantickets.com site crashed too, experiencing over 60 000 page views in two hours!

People who know what we've done for our fans before know that we are not about money. We appreciate our fans more than anything. Therefore, we've made the ticket vendor contact people whom the rush affected and offer 400 of them a cheaper rate ticket. We as concert organizers will take that blow. We urge people to keep in mind though that this is very unconventional and it will not be an ideal and perfect process. Regrettably, some people who may have deserved tickets will still be left without this opportunity.

Therefore, AVICII and I are giving away tickets on a continuous basis up until the event. We ask the people who were left without a chance to get tickets to keep a look out on the Facebook group in the coming weeks and few months.

We thank all of you for your understanding and promise that next time we will look for an even bigger venue to accommodate the number of New York area fans. We are also planning a live broadcast from the event for anyone who is interested. More updates on this will come soon.

We have nothing but love for you,

Ash Pournouri
AT NIGHT MANAGEMENT
