What is Coachella?

The festival is one of the first of the year, and its California location means it draws in plenty of celebrities who party the weekend away.

Coachella has been running since 1999 and attracts a quarter of a million people across the two weekends – to the Empire Polo Club site in Indio Valley, near Palm Springs.

When is Coachella 2019?

Coachella takes place over two three-day weekends in the summer.

This year, Weekend One runs from April 12-14, and Weekend Two from April 19-21.

The line-up is the same over both weekends, so those lucky enough to have tickets won’t miss out no matter what date they’re visiting.

Some had expected Kanye West to be announced, but he reportedly pulled out due to staging issues.

According to TMZ, West pulled out of the 2019 event because he didn’t want to perform on the festival’s traditional 40×60 foot stage because it was “artistically limiting.”
“These 40×60 stages are so archaic. It’s the same type of stage on which Shakespeare’s works were performed hundreds of years ago,” a source told the website.

How can I get tickets to Coachella 2019?
