Coachella has seen its slowlest ticket sales in a decade, with passes for both weekends still currently available — a week after they went live.

According to a report from SFGate in 2015, Coachella sold out in just “40 minutes” whereas in 2022 tickets had taken four hours to sell out.

For this year’s festival, tickets are still available to purchase for both weekends — after going live on January 19.

According to its website, a general pass for the first weekend costs $499 (£392) whilst a pass for its second weekend costs $549 (£431.28).

Last week, the full line-up to its 2024 edition was revealed with headliners Doja Cat, Tyler, The Creator and Lana Del Rey all of whom have previously performed at the festival.

Also on the bill include a host of electronic music acts such as Peggy Gou, Orbital, BICEP, Two Shell, Mall Grab and Skream & Benga.

Justice will be making their return to performing at the festival, with their debut performance of their as-yet-unseen new live show set for the main stage.

Coachella is known for being one of the most famous music festivals in the world, spanning across two weekends in April — yet in recent years, it has seen some last minute changes to its line-up.

In 2022, Kanye West was pulled from his headline slot just a week before the festival, as TMZ reported that the festival believed that the rapper needed time to “work on himself”.

On top of this, last year’s headliner Frank Ocean was unable to perform for the second weekend citing a leg injury.

Ocean told Pitchfork after his slot on the first weekend that his performance was “chaos”, and not what he “intended to show”.

After the news of Ocean’s last-minute cancellation, People searching Google for “sell Coachella tickets” more than quadrupled jumping by 445%.

Coachella 2024 will take place across two weekends from April 12 to 14 and April 19 to 21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
