Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival presented a sold-out show at this year’s fest in Indio, California, and concertgoers are already preparing for the next edition of the highly-anticipated show in 2019 as dates were just announced.
The festival, which spans over two weekends and features some of the hottest acts in the industry, will take place from April 12 – 14 and April 19 – 21 at Empire Polo Club’s fields in Indio, California. General admission passes are now on sale for $429, while festival and shuttle combo passes are $504 each. VIP passes are $999 with $150 for parking, and car camping along with tent camping is $125 per space. For the first time, there is a “preferred car camping option” which is $325.
There are also multiple packages for fans looking to splurge — the Lake Eldorado Tee-pee package is offered for $2,458, offering two tickets, parking, and a tee-pee styled tent. If planning on attending the festival with friends, there are four-person Tee-pee packages, two-person tee-pee VIP packages and two-person Safari Tent packages. The Safari Tent packages, rounding out to $9,500, are only available through valleymusictravel, allowing two guests two enjoy air-conditioned “glamping-style accommodations,” golf cart transportation to and from the venue, private parking, an air-conditioned lounge, spa, private showers and restrooms, among other amenities.
The highest-priced passes at the festival add up to $110,000, known as the Coachella Platinum Estates option, which allows 10 people to spend up to five nights in a “private, luxury estate” with up to six bedrooms, a private pool, Jacuzzi, fire pit, Wi-Fi, and more. The kitchen is fully stocked, along with a cleaning service. These luxury passes are also offered through valleymusictravel.
This year’s festival, which featured performances from headlining acts Beyonce, Eminem, and The Weeknd, was one of the most-talked about shows this year. Cardi B performed – and even twerked – while pregnant, The Weeknd, Miguel, Kendrick Lamar, and Portugal. The Man took the stage, and the “Walmart yodeling kid” stole the show. Eminem showcased his greatest hits throughout the years, and Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Bebe Rexha, and Skylar Grey surprised the audience with cameos. Beyonce became the first black woman to headline the fest, and her set included a drumline, step-dancing and an overall cultural experience. The crowd drew in around 750,000 to 125,000 guests per day throughout the six days.
The 2019 festival lineup is expected in January 2019.
