Coachella Ticket Prices Sink Following Beyonce Departure

Beyonce‘s departure from this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has spelled trouble with a capital T for its organisers.

Why now would be a good time to buy tickets if you haven’t already?

TGJ has the scoop below…

The artist, who is pregnant with twins, was forced to postpone her set at the festival until next year after being advised to do so by her medical team.

Alas, this has seen demand for the festival’s tickets slip and slide as interest in it dwindles.

‘The Hollywood Reporter’ explains…

The news caused an immediate dip in the price of Coachella tickets on the secondary market, according to TicketIQ, an event ticket search engine and aggregator that tracks ticket sales on the secondary and primary market.

Prices for Weekend 1 dropped 12 percent from an average price of $978 to $872 after the news hit that the Lemonade singer was bowing out of this year’s event. Tickets for the Weekend 2 dropped nearly 3 percent from an average price of $856 to $834.

Fans hoping to catch her live at the world’s most-profitable festival now have a year to prepare for it.

As for the organisers? They are now said to be scrambling to find an act to replace the ‘Love Drought’ creative.

Expect a name before March’s end.

    David i don’t get why you delete comments just because you don’t agree with them but do nothing when that pressed troll goes on Beyonce,Mariah Carey and Lady gaga posts and comments under various users names. Or is it because you and your team are behind those multiple troll comments just to generate hits and cause Stan wars

    • Navy February 27, 2017

      Lies! ?

  8. Suicide Blonde February 27, 2017

    But other reports say the opposite of this, so we shouldn’t believe that her departure had any effect on the festival tickets going up or down.

    • Weezy Tha Goat February 27, 2017

      Billboard confirmed it though.

      • Suicide Blonde February 27, 2017

        And TMZ reported this two days ago, they hardly, if ever wrong, Billboard in the other hand is payed by record labels, or the artist himself for favorable articles about them, are we supposed to believe that the most famous music festival right now is having problems to sell tickets because of Beyoncé?…C’mon now.

      • .:: Centurion ::. February 27, 2017

        Oops! The ticket slaes increased. ?

      • BEY>RIH February 27, 2017

        Are we supposed to believe one of the most famous people in the world leaving the festival isnt going to have an effect ok ticket sales?

      • .:: Centurion ::. February 27, 2017

        It did. The ticket prices actually INCREASED. ?

      • Oh February 27, 2017

        Lmao Tmz broke the whole elevator saga and a few other scandals so there is not reason to not believe them

  9. HailLegendBeysus February 27, 2017

    Billboard —-> TMZ simple as that!
    .
    Also why is the Salvation Army even commenting about ticket prices? Their fav cancelled stadiums and stuggled to fill 9k arena’s. I mean even FlopGa sold out stadiums in the US LMFAOOO!!

    • Selena GGourmet February 27, 2017

      Lies..FlopGa will b playing basketball arenas…stadiums like 3-5.?

      • ??☕ February 27, 2017

        Fact is she is still going to be performing in sold out stadiums she even had to add extra dates due to the demand. Stay mad with your 28373829 troll accounts and stupid illuminati theories .. yes I know you that pressed idiot who suffers from multiple personality disorder

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler February 27, 2017

      Don’t worry, they don’t have to believe it. Critics, the general public, news channels, talk shows, and billboard does. They can believe whatever they want, but they can’t deny facts. There’s a reason why Beyoncé was grossing $6 million a night on a SOLD OUT stadium world tour and Rihanna was struggling to sell out arenas.

  10. 4u2see February 27, 2017

    They went up on the ticket price after beyonce cancelled and there will be no refunds from the people who bought the tickets .

  11. LB February 28, 2017

    TMZ is reporting the ticket prices actually increased and TMZ is rarely wrong.
