After a two-festival hiatus, Coachella made its triumphant return—and now it’s time to turn our attention to Coachella 2023. 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). The 2023 edition is still months away, but when it arrives it’ll bring plenty of bands 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 14–16 and April 21–23, 2023.

When do Coachella tickets go on sale?

Presale begins Friday, June 17 at 10am. You can register here for access. Note that for the 2023 event, Coachella is switching over to AXS for its ticketing platform.

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 $699. 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?

It’s likely that Frank Ocean will play the 2023 fest, but otherwise we don’t have any lineup info yet. For reference, the 2022 event featured Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Swedish House Mafia and the Weeknd.
