Coachella had no problem selling tickets to its expanded two-weekend format. As the festival’s Twitter account reveals, tickets for both weekends are soldout as of 2:57pm ET. They went on sale at 12:00pm ET.

While festival promoters have not revealed how many passes were available for purchase, last year’s paid attendance was 75,000 per day.

As per the above poster, Coachella runs 13-15th and April 20-22nd at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Radiohead, The Black Keys, Dr. Dre, and plenty more are playing. You can study up here.

I got in at 12:58 (est), and waited for about 25 minutes before getting a ticket.
1 of my friends sat in there for 2 hours before getting 2 tickets.
Another friend waited 2 hours before finding out that it was all sold.
Quite random really

same thing happened to me with Firefox. The actual problem was that no one mentioned 90% of tickets were gone in pre-sale. Demand >>>>>supply
