Coachella Ticketing FAQ
When do Coachella Tickets go on sale?
Presale tickets typically go on sale in June immediately after Coachella. The general ticket sale is usually live in early January, usually right after the line up is released.
Do I have to buy a camping pass with my ticket?
No, if you want to go camping you can buy that pass separately. You can also trade and sell the camping pass separately – they aren’t linked to your Coachella ticket.
Are Lyte / StubHub / Festicket legit resellers of tickets?
Yes they are all legitimate companies. Stubhub has their own location near the venue for customer service if there are issues with your ticket.
Are Coachella shuttle passed linked to the ticket or can I sell those separately?
You can buy the shuttle pass along with the ticket but you can sell the pass separately.
What comes with the Coachella VIP ticket?
VIP Areas offer specialty food & drink vendors, air-conditioned restrooms, shaded seating areas and full cash bars. VIP Areas are located at the Five Peaks tents adjacent to the Main Stage and in the Rose Garden. VIP tickets do NOT give you backstage access.
What if my wristband is at will call and I can’t go? Can my friend or someone I sold it to pick it up?
The official answer from Coachella is no. They want the original purchaser in person, their ID and the card used. This doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to get it done, enforcement has been known to be spotty. Be polite but persistent and you may get lucky but we wouldn’t count on it.
How do I get backstage or in those close up viewing areas?
Buying a Safari tent package for around $9k for two people will get you backstage (probably not for headliners and not to all areas) and in those fenced off areas plus golf cart transportation between stages, a fully stocked tent, celebrity sightings, and a bunch of other perks. These are called “guest” passes. “Artist” passes give you all of this plus access to the artist compound and more, as if you were an artist playing coachella. These passes are much harder to get, basically you have to have a connection, get lucky finding a seller, or buy an even more expensive “yurt” package. Even above that are ultra VIP passes like the “empire” pass which is only given to a select few.
Are there single day Coachella Passes?
No. You would have to find someone willing to sell a single day use of their wristband and get it off their wrist and onto yours. I would only recommend trying this on the last/first day or with someone you fully trust. I find the plastic bag method to be pretty effective for getting a wristband off that’s just a bit too tight to slip over your wrist. You can also just leave it loose enough to slip off. Keep in mind this is technically not allowed but we’ve never had any issues with sharing wristbands.
Do I need to keep my 2020 Coachella wristband to go in 2021?
Per the official email we can expect to be contacted at a later date about new 2021 wristbands. You should definitely hold onto your wristband as a keepsake at least, it might turn out to be a bit of a collector’s item.
Is there a separate Coachella ticket for each day?
No, the ticket is a wristband that gives you access on all three days.
Can I switch weekends after I ordered my passes?
Coachella does have a ticket exchange service that you can use, usually once the tickets have sold out.
I accidentally damaged or lost my Coachella wristband. What should I do?
Any damaged or tampered with wristbands will not be allowed for accessing the Festival You may inquire further at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your order number and be as detailed as possible describing your situation.
Can I get a refund for my Coachella pass?
All sales are final, no refunds. You can resell your ticket on stubhub or use the fan-to-fan exchange.
