Coachella 2024 is still many months away, but it’s already time to start thinking ahead. The Indio music festival typically marks one of the earliest live music weekends across the country (and maybe we’re a bit biased, but we’d say its lineup outclasses nearly every other music festival, too). When the 2024 edition does arrive, it’ll bring with it plenty of bands and DJs to see and amazing things to eat and drink between sets (spoiler: food from some of the best restaurants in Los Angeles). Here’s what you need to know.
What is Coachella?
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual music festival held over two weekends in Indio, just east of Palm Springs.
When is Coachella?
The festival is held over two weekends, April 12–14 and April 19–21, 2024.
Where is Coachella?
Not in the city of Coachella, surprisingly. Though most of us simply refer to the fest as Coachella, it’s technically the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. So the event actually takes place at the Empire Polo Club, a large field in the city of Indio (which is part of the larger Coachella Valley, a desert area a couple of hours east of L.A. in Riverside County).
When do Coachella tickets go on sale?
Presale for the 2024 fest begins Friday, June 16 at 11am. Expect these passes to quickly sell out, though more tickets are usually released after the lineup announcement in January.
How much are Coachella tickets?
We hope you’ve been saving up (all of the following prices include fees): General admission costs between $549 and $649, depending on when you’re able to snag them. Shuttle combo tickets cost $649 to $749. For VIP, it’ll cost you $1,119 to $1,399. Check out the Coachella website for wide range of camping rates.
What will the Coachella lineup be like?
Expect the lineup to be announced in January of 2024. As a reminder, Bad Bunny, BLACKPINK and Frank Ocean originally topped the 2023 lineup (though Blink-182 and Four Tet, Fred Again and Skrillex replaced Ocean during the second weekend), with additional sets from Calvin Harris, Gorillaz, Björk, Rosalía, Eric Prydz, Burna Boy, Kali Uchis, Porter Robinson, Blondie, Becky G, boygenius, Underworld and literally dozens of others.
