The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival’s first of two weekends has now sold out of general admission tickets, according to promoter Goldenvoice. Once known for selling out on the same day that the lineup was released, this year, the festival took exactly 27 days, four hours and 38 minutes to sell approximately 125,000 tickets for the first weekend.

That’s far longer than in 2023 when tickets for the first weekend sold out in just four days, or in 2022 when Coachella returned after a two-year pandemic break and sold out both weekends of the festival in about 40 minutes.

Goldenvoice president and festival cofounder Paul Tollett has not publicly addressed this year’s festival’s sales and declined to comment for this story.

News of the weekend one sellout, for April 12–14, was announced Thursday (Feb. 15) on Goldenvoice’s X account, with a tweet posted at 2:38 pm PST saying, “GA and GA + Shuttle passes for Coachella Weekend 1 are now SOLD OUT. Very limited Weekend 1 VIP remain. See you in the desert.” Those weekend one VIP tickets are going for $1,399. Weekend two VIP tickets are priced at $1,100, while three-day general admission tickets for the second weekend, April 19-21, are priced at $549.

In 2022, weekend two tickets sold out shortly after the lineup was announced, but the second weekend did not completely sell out last year.

This year’s Coachella lineup is led by Lana Del Rey, Tyler. The Creator, Doja Cat and a special reunion of No Doubt.

Cudi relayed the news to his fans in a heartfelt note on Wednesday (April 24), in which he revealed that he actually broke his calcaneus — the bone that forms at the heel — in the stage fall.
