This year’s edition of Coachella was the festival’s most lucrative one yet, as organizers walked away with a record-setting total gross of $78 million dollars, according to Billboard.

With a sold-out attendance of 96,500 per day, the festival drew a combined total of 579,000 over the course of its two weekends. The $78 million gross was $11 million better than last year’s earnings of $67.2 million.
