6Be prepared to wait
Buying tickets to Coachella can take a while. Be prepared to be in front of a computer or have your phone tied up for a while you are in virtual line for passes.
5Learn how it all works
The festival has a step-by-step guide on how the ticket buying process works (here). Have a look before 11 am, so you are not surprised by anything.
4Have a good connection
The last thing you want is to have your signal cut out in the middle of buying passes so make sure your Wi-Fi is strong like bull!
3The shuttle is great
Whether you are from out of town or a local, spend the extra cash and get shuttle passes. You’ll avoid sitting in traffic, you will have a shorter walk into the fest, and the shuttles are usually cool with you brining on a beverage or two (not in glass containers), if you are looking to pregame a bit.
2Don’t be greedy
Just buy the tickets you are going to use. If you think you are going to get rich off of scalping extra passes, just talk to everyone who thought they were going to do the same thing during Desert Trip. That worked out super for them.
1Locals will probably have one more shot to buy tickets
Those who live in the Coachella Valley are normally given one last shot to buy festival passes the week before the event. However, this involves waiting in line (or having your awesome mom wait in line for you) for hours. Buying them today is way easier.
Good luck on getting those passes!
