When tickets went on sale at 10AM yesterday for the first weekend of Coachella, they reportedly sold out in only 15 minutes! Or did they not sell out? There were long waits and site crashes that made it even harder for users online.
Once the site issues dissipated, people were then able to buy tickets for up to 2 hours. The April 12th weekend had a much higher demand due to the stronger lineup including Red Hot Chili Pepper as the headliner.
This happens all the time. Tickets reenter the purchase queue after it’s “sold out” because of site problems, people holding them in their cart, etc. Also, this year the tickets are more expensive because you are required to purchase a shuttle pass, making the total $399.
Coachella has sold out for the past three years, but not on the first day! Last year the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival attracted stars like Rihanna, Katy Perry, Vanessa Hudgens, Ke$ha, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Usher and more!
