So on the weekend on the weekend of April I was looking for coachella tickets for Friday only. I found a source before the weekend started and purchased the tickets from a 3rd party. I got in Friday and was very happy. Unfortunately I couldn't go Saturday & Sunday. So before the weekend started I got a call from a girl over instagram saying I should buy a 3 day pasd she will buy my Saturday & Sunday since I can't go( I marketed to purchase coachella tickets on "Instagram"). So I sold her the wristbands for the rest of the weekend at $420 and a few hours later says she isnt able to enter the festival due to a "Replaceable Wristband". So the person i bought it from basically went to the front and replaced there tickets
Personally, I would refund the person's money. It sounds like the tickets where sold at least twice (or three times including when the person who sold them to you brought them). Its unclear as to whether the person who sold them to you had authority to do so. The same issue exists with your sale to the last buyer. There are also issues of a "bona fide" purchaser. Basically, your case is likely turns on the underlying contract from the initial ticket purchase and whether you and the first seller had authority to contract.
At the end of the day, your case is probably far too complicated to litigate over $400 so I (personally) would just refund the money. You should still talk to an attorney about the refund and also about evaluating a potential case against the "source" of the tickets.

I agree with my colleagues. Refunding the money would be most appropriate here.
