Coachella 2013 Ticket Prices

Coachella Weekend Two Ticket Prices Falling Fast

The average price of a General Admission ticket to Coachella’s second weekend has stood under face value for over a month, but the decline in prices has really accelerated in the past two weeks. In that time period, GA tickets for Weekend 2 of Coachella have sold for $258 on average, which is $91 below the GA face value of $349. In contrast, tickets to the first Coachella weekend sold, on average, for $383 in the two weeks before the event — a price premium of roughly $125 as compared to Weekend 2.

Weekend 2 ticket prices have also shown more recent signs of deterioration, with yet another drop in ticket prices within the last 24 hours. GA tickets to Weekend 2 have sold for $230 in the last 24 hours, or $120 below face value. With no major surprises during Coachella’s first weekend on the scale of a Tupac holographic performance, there simply hasn’t been much additional excitement this year to sustain prices beyond the initial wave of interest from the announcement of Coachella’s dates and lineup.

Coachella ticket prices for week 2 declining.

Based on historical trend data and what we’ve seen so far this year, we’d expect that baseline “get-in” average for a GA pass to hover at or below $215 as we edge closer to Friday. Weekend 2 is already the least expensive Coachella weekend we’ve seen in the past 3 years, so with a perfect weather forecast for this weekend, there appears to be a great opportunity this weekend for consumers to enjoy an ideal Coachella weekend on the cheap.

For bigger spenders, VIP passes haven’t been immune to a second weekend price drop, either. Prices remained fairly steady over the last two months, hovering around $850 per pass, but in the last week they have sold for $634 on average, a drop of over $200! According to some published reports from Weekend 1, stars as varied as Kristen Stewart and Leonardo DiCaprio milled about in the VIP section of the Empire Polo Fields. If you want to party like a celebrity at this year’s Coachella, Weekend 2 VIP tickets might be your best shot to get in on the relatively cheap.

Previous Coachella Ticket News

Tickets for Coachella are available in a multitude of packages, including: GA Festival Pass / Shuttle Pass Combo for $399; GA Festival Pass for $349; 1 GA Festival Pass / Car Camping Pass Combo for $434; 2 GA Festival Pass / Car Camping Pass Combo for $783. With that said, tickets for the festy have long been sold out. In fact, tickets were gone only 21 hours after they went on sale back in January. But that doesn’t mean you can’t purchase tickets on the secondary market. Through SeatGeek.com, regular GA ticket bundles are available from $405 – $859, and VIP tickets are also available at an average of $1,000. Shuttle passes are also available on the secondary market from $80 – $116.

2013 Ticket Prices in Decline

The average price of a General Admission ticket to the first Coachella weekend is $455 while the average ticket to the second weekend is only $371. Particularly in the last few weeks, we’ve noticed that prices have begun to drop significantly. Tickets to the first weekend are down 13.5% and tickets to the second weekend are down 12.6% when compared to prices from the week prior.

Tickets to Weekend One of Coachella are currently approaching face value, with the average price of a ticket sold this week coming down to $371, or only $22 above face of $349. At this point in 2012, ticket prices to the first weekend were falling, but were still going for $427, a full $127 over face. Based on trends we’ve noticed this year and our data on past years of Coachella, we’d expect that fans should be able to pick up a badge for the first weekend at or below face value in the final week before the festival.

The best value for ticketless fans looking to attend Coachella is Weekend Two — much like last year. This week, the average sale price of a ticket to the second weekend of Coachella was $267, or roughly $80 below face value and nearly $100 cheaper than Weekend One! At this time last year, tickets to the second weekend were priced in line with the first weekend, so the fact that Weekend Two prices are already diverging fro Weekend One prices would indicate to us that there should be good availability of tickets below face value for Weekend Two from now up until showtime.

If you thought a less expensive GA ticket to Coachella meant less expensive VIP tickets too, then you are in for a surprise. A VIP pass to the first weekend sold for $967 this past week, is down from a high of $1138. VIP passes to the second weekend are a bit cheaper but will still run you $848, which is about $50 over their face value of $799. Prices for the VIP passes are likely to fall in the coming weeks, but we wouldn’t expect the same kind of sharp downward price movement as we’ve seen for standard GA passes.

Coachella ticket prices in decline.

2013 Coachella Ticket Prices Over Time

Since Coachella tickets started moving on the secondary market they have average $465.19 (as of 4/4/2013) with some interday fluctuations as shown in the table below:

DateAvg. Ticket Price

3/28/2013 546.3448276

4/2/2013 427.2888889
4/3/2013 528.0588235

Note these are for the first weekend passes.

Historical Coachella Ticket Prices

Based on the table below, it appears that the highest average ticket price in the last few years of Coachella occurred in 2012, at $637 on the resale market. This is the same year that Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s performance included a projection of the late Tupac Shakur onstage. The cheapest average ticket price was the following weekend, at $400 on the resale market, taking place on April 22. Maybe everybody watched the Tupac clips from the weekend before on YouTube and were like, “been there, done that.”

Indio CA Empire Polo Field 4/22/2012 $400.00

With the quick sellout of 2011′s festival, an unprecedented demand due to a perfect storm of reasons sent prices on the secondary market skyrocketing for those eager to hang out in Indio last April.

During the first week after festival passes sold out, tickets were selling on average $937.33 for standard general admission tickets (without shuttle), a ridiculous 192.92% markup above face value ($320 including fees). Average prices peaked the second week at $942.52 (194.54% above face value) but tumbled by the third week. For those who waited to buy during the third week, festival passes were a mere 49.63% above face value, hovering around $478.82.

While other summer music festivals started to announce their lineups (Sasquatch! Feb. 7th, Bonnaroo Feb. 15th, Pitchfork Mar. 4th), ticket prices remained relatively stable. From January 30th until March 19th, Coachella passes sold on the secondary market hovered between the 43.02% and 59.82% above face value ($479.22 – $511.43).

Prices took off again once the two weeks leading up to Coachella 2011, with passes sold at an average of $645.40(twice face value) on secondary markets.

Coachella Tickets 2012 Analysis

Just like last year, prices bottomed out about a month after tickets sold out. Demand was overwhelming during the first week of the sellout, with prices 102.64% and 83.13% above face value for weekend one and two, respectively. At their cheapest, tickets were 20.28% and 24.14% less expensive that its peak for weekend one and two during the week of January 29th until February 5th.

If last year is a point of reference, tickets will start to go up beginning this week, right until the last week before the show.

Coachella Ticket Prices On the Secondary Market

Aside from the first crazy weeks of last year, both weekends are on par with average markup based on last year’s ticket prices.

Week 10 65.28% 62.65% 47.45%

With prices correlating strongly week to week, now’s the time to buy tickets is now before they spike up again.

How Quickly Will Coachella Sell Out?

The 2011 Coachella saw unprecedented demand. Tickets sold out in record time of six days leaving people (such as myself) out of luck. Sure there are theories as to why tickets sold out so quickly. I attribute it to the stellar lineup they had last year of Kanye West, Arcade Fire, the Strokes and the Kings of Leon. Aside from the latter band, which I don’t respect ever since this particular incident, the reunions of Caifanes, Big Audio Dynamite and Death From Above 1979, in addition to the star studded lineup contributed to a record sellout.

As a point of reference, in 2010, my buddy bought his ticket literally the week before the festival. Not that it was particularly indie by any means, with Jay-Z, Muse and the Gorillaz headlining, but Coachella 2011 was an entirely different beast for those of you who tried to get tickets.

To appease those who missed out last year, Coachella promoters held an early ticket purchase back in June 2011, even though not even an whiff of who was going to perform was in the air. I have to give them credit – if it weren’t for their layaway system, I wouldn’t be going this year. This year may match the fervor with a few notable reunions and an all around superb lineup and headliners. With the first weekend essentially sold out, good luck with the second weekend.

Previous Coachella News & Rumors

The section below lists reports and rumors as they have surfaced in roughly reverse chronological order.

4/4/2013: Improved plans were announced to extend the Coachella festival in it’s current location through 2030.

UPDATE

In less than one day – 21 hours, to be exact – the Coachella Music Festival has sold out. According to Consequence of Sound, which got their news from Coachella’s official Twitter account, the event officially sold out as of 9:40am this morning (1/30). However, when it comes to the secondary ticket market, “sold-out” is a relative term. We have noticed a decrease in inventory, but we’ve still got a few festival tickets left! Scroll back up through our links above – hopefully, you can still snag a GA spot to see the Stone Roses, Blur and the other festival headliners (assuming you’re one of the fans who know who they are, of course).

UPDATE

You can let the air out of your Rolling Stones/Coachella balloon. From all the buzz created by the leaked listing on the band’s iPhone app to the hype drawn up by the picture of the mysterious stone-like orb posted on the Coachella Facebook page, fans were hoping this would happen, especially after the huge shows they did in celebration of their 50th anniversary in London, Brooklyn and Newark.

As Pollstar puts it “rumors were just rumors” given sources close to the band. Nothing more. Nothing less. Just a big let down for fans.

With these rumors put to rest, we can now all turn our attention to if and when the Rolling Stones will announce their tour plans as a follow up to the select 50th anniversary shows.

In the meantime, check out a new promo video for Coachella …

Coachella – “Bloom”

UPDATE

Confirming some pretty awesome speculation, Billboard’s got it from three separate sources that Ben Gibbard and Dntel (aka Jimmy Tamborello) will in fact reunite as The Postal Service for Coachella 2013. Though Gibbard continues to insist another Postal Service LP is not forthcoming, the duo will release a deluxe edition of their debut, and only, album, Give Up, to mark its 10th anniversary.

Apparently, more concert dates are on their way, so be sure to check back with us for ticketing options once more info’s revealed.

UPDATE

One of the most fascinating rock n’roll stories of the new millenium – and then some – will continue its strange saga at Coachella 2013. Rodriguez, the subject of the Oscar-nominated documentary Searching for Sugarman, has been tapped to play this year’s event, as well as the Glastonbury and Primavera festivals.

For those who haven’t seen the film (do!) and are unfamiliar with the real-life unfolding plotline, here’s the background:
Detroit native Rodriguez – aka Sixto Rodriguez – tried, and failed, to make it as a Dylanesque singer/songwriter in the early ’70s (though many admirers claimed his talent surpassed Dylan’s). Failed, that is, in the United States – while Sixto cut his losses as a blue-collar laborer back in Detroit, both Cold Fact and Coming From Reality sold millions in South Africa. Mistakenly believed to have killed himself in front of a hostile bar crowd early in his career, Rodriguez became a South African symbol of protest. His tracks were the hymns and marching songs for a generation: for the angry, for the teenagers, for the politically radical. So far as South Africa was concerned, he was Dylan, only he enjoyed the status of Elvis. He was a huge deal; and he had no idea.

Cut to several decades later, when a few intrepid South Africans decide to sleuth out how Rodriguez really died. They find him not only living, but living in complete ignorance of his South African fame. The fans persuade him to play a few shows in their home country, he’s received as rock royalty, but ultimately decides to return home, to his modest income and family. He visits South Africa every now and then to perform, but refuses to live abroad as the superstar he is.

With this most recent Coachella announcement, however, Rodriguez is going mainstream. Let’s see if the humble 70-year-old can finally achieve homeland stardom – and if he wants to.

UPDATE

Fans may dream about their favorite acts performing at Coachella, but – or because of this? – the rumor mill never sleeps. The latest speculation to hit the ‘net involves The Postal Service reuniting at Coachella 2013. As Consequence of Sound points out, BrooklynVegan broke the news of Ben Gibbard and Dntel getting back together earlier today, posting a textless article that ran with the headline “Postal Service reunion in the works” and included tags for both S.S. and mainland Coachella.

Mick & Ben on the same stage? Coachella 2013 is shaping up to be one. Big. Deal.

UPDATE

The speculation and rumors of the possibility of a Rolling Stones performance at the 2013 version of Coachella got a second life this past week with the posting of a mysterious photo on the Coachella Facebook page. Seen as a stone-like orb in a field of grass, many fans are interpreting this a cryptic message as to the addition of the Stones to the lineup.

Even though Mick Jagger has come out denying a Stones Coachella performance, one can only hope that he is bluffing as the Stones 50th anniversary shows in London, Brooklyn and Newark were not a well kept secret as we all know.

Check out the image below and let us know what you think! We’ll keep bringing you all the latest Coachella 2013 rumors, news, ticketing information and lineup announcements right here at SeatGeek.

UPDATE

With all the speculation surrounding their 2013 touring plans, Daft Punk were put in a place to have to confirm or deny the rumors that they would be on the bill for the 2013 edition of Coachella. In addition to these rumors, the duo was also speculated to be a headliner at this year’s Glastonbury and Bestival festivals in the United Kingdom.

However, festival organizers for Bestival have been informed that Daft Punk will not be touring at all in 2013, and that includes festival appearances. So the rumors that they would be on a potential bill with The Rolling Stones and Yeah Yeah Yeahs can be squashed.

Daft Punk have not toured since 2010 when they toured in support of their work on the soundtrack to the Tron: Legacy film.

We’re looking forward to confirmations of the Coachella bill, with or without Daft Punk, so keep checking back with us as news is released.

UPDATE

Even the higher-ups organizing Coachella have dream acts they’d love to see perform, a wish list the event’s founder Paul Tollett shared at a recent press conference. As Billboard reports, Tollett said he tries “every year” to book The Smiths, who’ve previously turned down a $5 million offer. Other bands Tollett and co. have failed to nail down, but would love to feature, include David Bowie, Talking Heads and Iron Maiden.

One big name they have managed to snag is former Fleet Foxes drummer Father John Misty, who Tollett confirmed will perform at Coachella in 2013. Check back here for more official announcements as they’re released, and feel free to list your own dream acts in the comments section below!

UPDATE

In a scoop highlighted by NME, it appears that the rumors that the Rolling Stones will be headlining Coachella next year are not that crazy after all. According to them, subscribers to Songkick were sent an email update that highlighted the rock legends as well as Daft Punk, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Phoenix as performers.

This would be a huge coup to get The Stones on the bill and by the looks of it, they are starting to fill out the bill with some other big names.

In related news, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are releasing their new studio album this coming spring, their first new material since 2009′s Grammy-nominated It’s Blitz!

UPDATE 12/14/2012: Rolling Stones Coachella 2013

If true, this is wildly exciting, incredibly lucrative, and any other variant on “big deal” you’d like to toss in, news: Could The Rolling Stones be headlining Coachella 2013? Earlier today, the group allegedly posted several new tour dates on their mobile app, which included a listing for an April 12 show in Indio, CA. Apparently, the link was soon taken down, but not before a few scrappy fans screen-shot the post and re-tweeted the image (see below). Did an intern “accidentally” spill the eminently hypeable beans? Was someone told to accidentally spill the eminently hypeable beans? Did someone (could have been an intern, somewhere) simply photoshop the image, which may or may not have ever actually existed? Was someone told to simply photoshop the image, which may or may not have ever actually existed? As they pertain to two of the most popular acts in music, the classic Stones and the crowd-pleasing Coachella, these are far from unimportant questions. We’ll keep you posted as more info, and images, continues to pour in!

Will the Rolling Stones headline Coachella 2013?

Coachella 2013 Lineup

The first two acts for Coachella 2013 have just been announced, setting the tone for next year’s festival: EDM. Paul Kalkbrenner, a German electronic performer, and Kill the Noise (otherwise known as Jack Stanczak), a dubstep heavyweight, will head out to Indio, CA, next April, for two consecutive weekends of what’s promising to be synth-heavy shenanigans. Check out which other bands we think might round out next year’s lineup, as well as our full list of ticket links to the event!

UPDATE

On July 17th, Coachella organizers announced that the next Coachella Festival will be held on the SS Coachella, a luxury cruise liner with a 2,800 person capacity. The Coachella Festival began in 1999 and has been held in the desert city of Indio, California for the last 13 years. The relocation of the event from land to sea does not rule out Coachella 2013 returning to its native location in California.

Past Lineup & Dates: Coachella 2012

It’s that time of year again, boys and girls. Coachella always welcomes the new year by announcing their lineup. With two weekends with identical lineups in wonderful Indio, Coachella festival organizers are hoping there will be plenty of tickets to go around, averting last year’s near immediate sell-out of tickets. With such a wide swath of artists, you could potentially go to both weekends and have two entirely different experiences. Better start planning now, ’cause it’s a trek between the different stages. Check out the Coachella 2012 Lineup.
