Single-day Coachella fest tickets sold out
Single-day tickets for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival are no longer on sale - at least for now.
Paul Tollett, president of Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice, said individual tickets for the three-day event - slated for April 25-27 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio - were cut off at 6 p.m. Saturday.
"I think it was the second-fastest selling Coachella," Tollett said.
He added, however, that "last year was kind of crazy" with headliners like Rage Against the Machine and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. This year's headliners include Jack Johnson, Portishead and Roger Waters.
Tollett, who pioneered regional music festivals with the first Coachella in 1999, said they cut off the tickets to try to keep the crowd around the same size as last year, which was about 60,000 people per a day.
"We gave people a whole day to get single day tickets Friday and a half-day Saturday," Tollett said. "Now the three-day passes are available. They didn't (sell out) all at the same time. One sold out, then the other and then the third. Now all three are sold out."
However, Tollett said anything could happen between now and the festival's kick-off.
"I want people to have a good time," Tollett said. We have 90 days still to ensure that it's super memorable.
