Coachella 2019 Tickets Sell Out in 6 Hours

Published: Saturday 5th Jan 2019 by Rashad

#Ariantors are apparently more than ready to see their fave, Ariana Grande, take the stage at the 2019 Coachella festival.

As we reported here, Grande – who, at 25 years old, made history as the fest’s youngest headliner – is sharing billing honors with rapper Childish Gambino.  Together, the twosome (alongside Khalid, Janelle Monae, Solange, H.E.R., Anderson.Paak, Diplo, and other featured performers) have sent concertgoers in a frenzy and caused a quick sellout.

Details inside:

Passes for weekend one of this year’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival are already gone. General admission passes [started] at $429 for the three-day event’s first weekend sold out 40 minutes after going on sale at 11 a.m. PST. All other pass options for weekend one (April 12-14) sold out shortly after.

As well, weekend two (April 19-21) general admission passes sold out shortly after noon PST on Friday [January 4] for the festival, which announced headliners Childish GambinoTame Impala and Ariana Grande on Wednesday [January 2] evening. [source]

*****

Grande, in addition to being the festival’s youngest headliner ever, also comes as just its fourth female headliner (behind Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Bjork).  And, while this year’s Coachella tickets were snapped up at a jaw-dropping pace, its sales velocity still pales in comparison to 2017 and 2018’s tickets respectively as both were sold out within 3 hours of availability.

Coachella is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California (which is located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert).

    no shade… Ariana Grande is NOT a festival performer. while her more recent material is a bit edgier and mass appealing, she lacks the UMPH FACTOR to take center stage at Coachella. let’s not fool ourselves into believing that she is at all responsible for the sell out. People pay for the status of simply being there & posting pics online to prove it.

    Not sure about Bjork as I have never followed her or watched any of her performances but Lady Gaga and Beyoncé are extremely tough acts to follow and I’m not confident Ariana can pull that off. Had I known Solange was performing, I would’ve gotten a ticket 🙄

    This entire generation suffers from a severe lack of exceptional performers. There’s nothing to wrestle with y’all. Ariana could never measure up. I’ve yet to see someone display a natural talent (even if they can keep up with the choreo) for the stage in a while. It’s a dead art form.

    They may have done better off with a big rapper solo headliner, (probably why they were talking to Kanye first). Because even if they can’t perform like a Bruno or Beyoncé, they still get crowds hyped. Childish Gambino and Tame Impala don’t have the exposure to do either one, and outside of her lil deranged fan base, Ariana struggles to hold people’s attention during her 3 minute award show performances, let alone performing for hours.
