Coachella is already selling passes for 2023, starting June 17 at 10 a.m. PT. Coachella 2023 runs from April 14-16 and April 21-23.
Summer is not over, and already 2022 has proven to be a successful year for live events. After a triumphant return after a three-year break, Coachella announces registration of 2023 passes, with early sale starting Friday, June 17 at 10 a.m. PT.
Three-day general admission tickets start at $499, with VIP passes starting at $1,069. Hotel packages are available exclusively through Valley Music Travel, including general admission and VIP festival passes, accommodation at a local resort, and Any Line Shuttle service. AXS is now powering Coachella’s ticketing platform for the 2023 event, and fans are encouraged to create their Coachella AXS Fan account in advance.
Payment plans start at $99 down payment, due by June 30, 2022, with the remainder divided into six equal payments due on the 15th of each month. Guests are issued wristbands which must be activated through the Coachella mobile app. The straps are shipping to shoppers after Coachella announces the 2023 lineup.
Although Coachella is the first major music festival to start selling passes to next year’s event, they are one of many, with SXSW, with initial preparations underway. Live music events are making a tremendous comeback this year after the pandemic led to numerous cancellations and postponements. It makes sense to prepare and gauge interest in ticket sales as early as possible.
As the pandemic forced cancellations for many, it prompted others to be resourceful. Countless artists have turned to live streaming to bring people together in this time of isolation. Live streaming giants like Twitch and YouTube are now eagerly announcing themselves as the official place to experience music festivals remotely.
Live Nation is already making almost as much money as it did before the pandemic as live events are making a comeback. The company reports $2.7 billion in sales and $160 million in adjusted operating income in the fourth quarter of 2021. Advertising and sponsorship sales reached $170 million, a 15% increase over 2019.
