How You Can Still Score Coachella 2016 Tickets

It took less than an hour for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to sell out. The festival returns to the Coachella Valley for two weekends: April 15-17 and April 22-24.

If you were unable to get tickets, you’re in luck — you still have a few options.

As of 2pm on Wednesday, Jan. 6th, you could still purchase GA and VIP passes to Weekend 2 – IF you use your American Express credit card. The company sends out a special link to it’s customers so they can get tickets without waiting online for what seems like hours. Ask a friend who has an AMEX card – and see if they will purchase a ticket for you.

Another option – you could have a friend who lives in the Coachella Valley buy your ticket during the LOCALS ONLY SALE. This usually takes place in early April, ahead of the festival. There will be a 2 pass limit per weekend per resident, while supplies last. Wristbands will be placed on the wrist of the resident purchaser and their guest by festival staff – guest must be present. Resident passes may only be purchased for use by valley resident and their guest. Proof of residency must be shown in the form of a California driver’s license or ID card.   Passes are non-transferable. You must live in the following zip codes in order to purchase a pass:

92201, 92202, 92203, 92210, 92211, 92230, 92234, 92236, 92240, 92241, 92253, 92254, 92255, 92258, 92260, 92261, 92262, 92263, 92264, 92270, 92274, 92275, 92276, AND 92292.
