In all seriousness, Coachella 2020 sounds futuristic as hell!
It’s that time of the year! The bit of June where friend groups collectively freak out via group texts in an effort to snag festival tickets for the same weekend of the infamous Palm Springs festival. So set your alarms, give your boss a heads up, and get ready to be on edge as you watch the little man “walk in a straight line” for about thirty minutes. Presale for Coachella 2020 begins this Friday, June 14 at 11 am.
As always, the festival will take place over the course of two weekends; next year’s festival weekends are on April 10-12 and April 17-19 (sadly, no 4/20 coincidences.) The line-ups will be identical to one another, though you never know what special guests will be brought on during either weekend.
People tend to purchase their passes in June because it’s the only time that you can purchase them through the payment plan which allows you to split the costs between seven monthly installments – and this time around, the installment for the first month is only $25. And by the looks of it, it seems as though ticket prices have gone down as well, general admission passes are $30 dollars cheaper than they were last year! (It may not seem like much of a discount, but the Coachella dollars start adding up…) It’s unknown whether or not the tickets will increase like years before during the general sale period in the winter.
