Advance tickets for Coachella 2018 are available as of June 2, and by the time you read this, they may already be sold out!
The dates have just been announced — April 13-15 and 20-22 — and the event will be held at the usual Empire Polo Club. Ticket prices range from $429 for the basic pass to a whopping $1,000 for VIP access.
For festival-goers, that’s a small price to pay, especially considering who the headliner will be — Beyonce! Queen Bey was scheduled to headline the event this year but was forced to pull out after she fell pregnant. It was rumored that she would instead headline in 2018, and now that’s been confirmed.
As for the other headliners, that’s still anyone’s guess. Here’s my educated one on everything Coachella 2018.
Without firm information, or even credible rumors, all we can do is look to the names that would make the most logical sense. Jay-Z could co-headline with Bey, making it a family affair. The Chainsmokers, who featured in 2016, could become one of the marquee acts as they continue to soar in popularity. And of course, there’s Harry Styles, who has broken with One Direction to go solo.
Coldplay is back in the limelight this year, so it would be no surprise to see them on the big stage. Sia and Chance the Rapper are relative youngsters but have massive, growing fanbases.
LCD Soundsystem, Pavement, Outkast, Guns N’ Roses, N.W.A, The Stooges: the list of bands that have reunited at Coachella is long and distinguished. Something about the Coachella Valley air has a way of bringing bands back together. (I think it’s all that green stuff flying around. Not that green stuff; the other one.)
Now is the perfect time for a Rage Against the Machine reunion, who (sort of) predicted a Trump presidency in “Sleep Now in the Fire.”
Led Zeppelin, My Chemical Romance, and Neutral Milk Hotel are also sorely missed and due for a reunion.
As for Oasis and the White Stripes, don’t hold your breath.
The festival has exploded in recent years and gross revenue has been skyrocketing. The 2017 numbers haven’t been released yet, but we can expect it to be around $100 million. The 2016 festival raked in $94.2 million, 2015 brought in $84.2 million, and 2014 went for $78.3 million.
Last year, general admission tickets sold out in just three hours. That’s quick, but it’s nothing compared to 2015, which only took 40 minutes. With Beyonce confirmed as a headliner, we can be pretty sure these tickets will sell like hot cakes.
