Grabbing a music festival ticket has become a sport within itself, and a stressful one at that. Tensions flare between friends who can't fork up their coins and finger pads become weak from frantic refreshes. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival tickets are the some of the hardest ones to come by, as they vanish within minutes each year, yet people are still surprised when it happens.
Alas, the weekend passes for the 2018 Coachella fest are no longer available after just three hours of being on sale (you can check their official website for yourself). General admission passes for the first weekend, which go for $429, were sold out in about 35 minutes, while the GA plus shuttle (they go for $504) sold out in about an hour, according to the Desert Sun. But that's not all: passes and general admission for the second weekend are completely gone as well.
Tickets went on sale on Jan. 5 at 12 p.m. PST and naturally, music fans are not taking the news lightly. They expressed their frustration, jokingly and otherwise, with the ticketing service on Twitter.
But if you weren't able to score tickets this year, have no fear! You can always watch the YouTube livestream to see headliners Beyoncé, Eminem and The Weeknd takeover the main stage. SZA, Tyler the Creator, Miguel, Post Malone, Cardi B, French Montana, Migos and dozens of other acts will also be performing at Coachella this year.
The two-weekend event will take place April 13-15 and April 20-22 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
