Tickets for Coachella‘s 2019 edition flew off the virtual shelves within hours — even minutes! — of going on sale.
The iconic California festival’s first weekend, slated for April 12-14, sold out of its general admission tickets in just 40 minutes, with tickets for weekend two (April 19-21) following shortly after. Six hours after going public, all Coachella passes were entirely sold out. The past two years, tickets sold out within three hours.
The festival’s full billing includes a large number of mainstream dance acts. DJ Snake, Diplo, Bassnectar, Four Tet, and more all land top of the billing. Coachella will run for two back-to-back weekends in mid-April. The first weekend of Coachella 2019 will take place from April 12 to 14, while the second will run from April 19 through April 21. The festival will return to its home at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
Passes will go on sale Friday at 11 a.m. PT /2 p.m. ET.

For more than a decade, DJ Earworm has been blending the year’s top songs into a massive “United States of Pop” mashup at the end of each year. He began the series in 2007, kicking off with a combo of songs from Soulja Boy, Akon, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Fergie, and more. It’s been 11 years since that inaugural mashup, and Earworm hasn’t slowed down in the slightest.
When the world met Alessia Caracciolo three years ago, she was the awkward teenager enduring a house party where she did not belong: “Somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana/ With this boy who’s hollering, I can hardly hear/ Over this music I don’t listen to.” Over the same Bond-worthy Isaac Hayes … More »
You know how sometimes at weddings they put disposable cameras on all the tables and ask the guests to document their experience?
