The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival’s fan base has again proven itself a faithful one, with the belief that the 2022 edition will have been worth the three-year wait manifesting in passes for both weekends selling out within hours of going on sale.
“Passes no longer available. 315 days till we meet again,” the festival posted on its Instagram account over the weekend. Tickets were actually have said to have sold out by 2:16 p.m. Friday, after having gone on sale at 10 a.m. PT that morning.
Of course, Coachella 2022 — slated for April 15-17 and 22-24 — had a head start in sales. A majority of passholders for the 2020 schedule have held onto their tickets in lieu of getting refunds as the event was repeatedly pushed back to a series of projected time frames that came and went last fall and again for this year.
Goldenvoice has set up waiting lists for both weekends on the festival site, presumably with the idea that some 2020 passholders may yet find themselves unavailable to make the 2022 dates and turn in their tickets for a refund. Traditionally, Coachella Valley residents have also been given a later crack at purchasing tickets after the initial sale, although there has been no mention of that yet for the 2022 edition. Reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment about details of the waitlist.
As has been typical for the fest in recent years, no artists were announced prior to the instantaneous sellout, and it’s not known which — if any — of the acts booked for 2020, who were to have included headliners Frank Ocean, Travis Scott and Rage Against the Machine, will be on deck 10 months from now.
The Stagecoach Music Festival, which always follows the second weekend of Coachella by a week, has been announced for April 29-May 1, 2022, also with a three-year gap between gatherings, but tickets have not yet gone on sale.
Beyond offering a waiting list and a page for 2020 passholders who’d like to turn in their tickets, the Coachella website has also set up a page for previous ticketholders who’d like to exchange weekend 1 for weekend 2 or vice versa.
