Coachella 2013: Tickets for the First Weekend Sold Out Within 15 Minutes

Tickets for Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, for the first weekend reportedly sold out within 15 minutes.

Long wait times and website crashes plagued those who attempting to purchase tickets for the more-in-demand April 12 weekend of the desert festival in Indio, California. Tickets for the weekend of April 19 still appeared available.

Tickets for April 12 continued to be purchased up to two hours after they were said to be sold out. It’s not entirely uncommon for tickets to reenter the purchase queue after an event is said to be sold out, as not everyone who places tickets in an online shopping cart will ultimately buy them.

This morning, those attempting to buy tickets for the festival’s first weekend were also required to purchase a shuttle pass, bringing the total cost of one pass to $399.

Front Gate is owned jointly by AEG Live, of which Coachella promoter Goldenvoice is a subsidiary, and C3 Events, which is responsible for the Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza festivals.

Even as users were having trouble giving Front Gate their payment information, the company tried to calm nerves. In response to multiple users reporting site crashes, Front Gate’s official Facebook account posted, “Oh there are SO many people buying. Hang tight, try again in a minute…. THANKS for all your patience!”

However, it is the age of the internet, so if you’re dying to attend Weekend 1, there are always options. Savvy moneymakers and planners-ahead are already taking to Craigslist, Facebook and Ebay to sell Weekend 1 Coachella passes.

But be warned. There were many instances of counterfeit festival wristbands sold online last year and some very sad concert-goers were turned away at Coachella security.
