(UPDATE 4/17) Coachella will touch down in Southern California for its second and final weekend beginning today. Equipped with some of music’s biggest names, the Indio-based festival will again welcome AC/DC, Jack White and Drake as headliners this weekend.
Last-minute tickets continue to drop in price on the secondary market as well, and this year’s second weekend will be the cheapest the festival has seen since 2013’s second weekend. The average price for a 3-day Coachella pass is now $525.63, down 10.2% from Monday’s average of $585.76.
This weekend is significantly cheaper than last, when tickets average at $910.97 on the secondary market. Currently, the cheapest 3-day pass available for this weekend is listed for $312.50, 30% cheaper than last weekend’s get-in price of $447.
Among other performers set to take the stage include Florence + The Machine, the Weeknd, Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, Steely Dan, alt-J, Hozier, David Guetta and Ryan Adams.
The face price for Coachella tickets was $375 for a general admission pass. Both weekends have sold out on the primary market. With just over 24 hours to go before the start of the festival, there are deals to be had on the secondary market. While the average price for Coachella tickets on the secondary market is $700.10, there are tickets listed for as low as $300, 20% below face price.
That $300 price is available through Seller Direct, a fan to fan marketplace from TicketIQ. Seller Direct brings some of the best deals on the secondary market. Another Seller Direct listing has Coachella tickets listed at exactly face price for the first weekend. There are also select Coachella ticket from brokers listed just under face price. The average price for Coachella tickets has dropped 20% over the past week on the secondary market, leaving plenty of last minute deals.

Saturday will be headlined by Jack White and will be preceded by Alt-J, Hozier and The Weeknd. Sunday will see Drake take the stage as the final performer while David Guetta, Brand New and Florence + the Machine play earlier. The festival is located at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

(4/6) It’s that time again – winter is finally over, the weather is warming up and festival season is in the air. This weekend will welcome the first installment of the 2015 Coachella Festival in Indio, California.
For those looking to attend what is widely considered the most popular North American festival of the year, 2015 Coachella tickets on the secondary market continue to tumble in price just four days out.
AC/DC, Jack White and Drake will headline this year’s festival and bring with them significantly cheaper ticket prices than last year, when Outkast, Muse and Arcade Fire fit the top of the bill. In 2014, 3-day passes to Coachella over both weekends averaged at $1,133.49 on the secondary market. This year, both weekends boast a secondary average of $722.72 – 36.2% cheaper than last year.
It seems as though prices continue to fall with each passing weekend. Last year’s first weekend owned a secondary average of $1,434.91 and fizzled to $1,048.37 in its second weekend. This year, Coachella’s first weekend will see 3-day passes average at $870.05, which is 26.8% more expensive than the second weekend 3-day pass average of $636.35.
Get-in price will also drop considerably between weekends in 2015. This weekend will see 3-day passes start at $354 while next weekend nosedives to a $38 low price.
