View Original Notice ? Remaining Coachella 2022 festival passes sell out within 75 minutes
The remaining tickets for the 2022 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival went on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 14, and were sold out by 11:14, according to a tweet from the festival’s official account.
The festival, which will feature headliners Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Ye (formerly Kanye West), will happen at the Empire Polo Club in Indio April 15-17 and April 22-24.
When the lineup was announced on Wednesday, Jan. 12, festival organizers said that Weekend 1 was sold out and only passes for the second weekend would be available. Prices for the tickets are $549 for a general admission pass, $633 for a general admission pass with shuttle access and $1,119 for a VIP pass. These prices do not include fees.
At 9:31 a.m. the festival’s Twitter account posted that they were experiencing delays getting presale codes out and offered troubleshooting tips for fans not receiving them.
The tweet read: “Be sure to check your email, or log back in at http://prereg.coachella.com to display your unique code + purchase link. We are experiencing some delays in SMS being sent.”
That tweet has since been deleted.
Some fans expressed confusion as to why they didn’t receive a code.
