#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.
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 Gambino, Tame 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).
