Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California is rapidly approaching and will kick off its first weekend on Friday, April 15 through Sunday April 17. Passes for Coachella for the first and second weekend sell out every year before the lineup is even announced, but they are currently on sale now on the secondary market.

With the first weekend of Coachella coming up, the demand for passes is in high demand. According to the data provided by TiqIQ, Coachella 3-Day passes for weekend one are currently averaging $1,108, with the cheapest pass priced at $629. Average prices across both weekends are significantly lower, averaging $785.

A 3-day pass for weekend two of Coachella, which will take place on Friday April 22 through Sunday April 24, are not yet as pricey, and are averaging $743 with the cheapest pass standing at $420.

In a recent Music Times article, TiqIQ shares a breakdown of this year’s most anticipated music festivals and how Coachella matches up in price. Governor’s Ball in New York City, and Bonnaroo in Tennessee are of those featured, both coming in significantly behind Coachella’s current average.

This year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will feature headlining performances from LCD Soundsystem, Guns N' Roses, and Calvin Harris. For two of these artists, Coachella will serve as a reunion show, as LCD Soundsystem last toured together in 2011, and are scheduled to hit the Coachella stage on Friday. Guns N' Roses’ performance, which is scheduled for Saturday, will feature co-founders Axl Rose and Slash on stage together after over 20 years in which it looked like that would never happen again.

Other artists who will appear at the festival are Gary Clark Jr., Ellie Goulding, Chris Stapleton, Rancid, Of Monsters and Men, and tons more.

Flights to California can be found easily through Hipmunk.com, as well as hotels in Indio for your stay throughout the event, with rates starting as low as $50.

Aside from music, Coachella has been known to offer a wide array of interactive art installations and one of a kind sculpture designs throughout the festival grounds, some of which are created exclusively for this festival.
