What’s that? You didn’t get your Coachella tickets yet? Well you will be duly rewarded for your procrastination.
LA Weekly points out that while tickets for last year’s Coachella were going for $800 two weeks beforehand and $550 the week of, tickets on StubHub and other online sellers are now going for an average of $421 for this weekend’s show. If you wait til the second weekend, prices will almost definitely drop even further.
Throwing the same show two weekends in a row was bound to have some effect on the whole supply and demand thing. Plus it’s supposed to rain a bit this weekend, which in Southern California is something like the end of the world.
Maybe it’s just me, but $421 for two days of music still seems like a hell of a lot of cash. If you wait to find the right deal online that’s like the same price as a three-day stay at a posh resort on the coast of Mexico—and there the drinks are included, instead of costing $8 for a water.
To be fair, the Coachella lineup does look pretty great. If you can’t find the $421 for this weekend’s show (or the substantially less for next weekend’s) check out the long-awaited return of At the Drive-In here.
