I'm hoping the price increase means less tickets sold.
Not enough of a price hike to stop me from going. Is that about $86 for the first payment if you're doing GA + camp? (and if I'm doing my math right?)
Wow, im so glad the price was the same for 6 years. Ok, now, WTF, 350!? Better give us some real Sahara acts and great headliners next year!
Metallica: 8/20 @ U.S. Bank Stadium
Prophets of Rage: 9/3 @ Hollywood Casino Amphitheater
Coachella 2017: 4/14-16 @ Empire Polo Fields
As previously specualted, the extra cash is for DAFT PUNK
They are using the extra money on a new mojave sound system.
$350 is still a bargain. Let's say there are 10-12 bands a day you want to see = $10 per act.
That said, it would be nice to see the extra $$ go toward more water refill stations or creating viewing areas within the beer garden by the Main/Outdoor (thinking high-school-style bleachers) or carving out viewing areas for VIPs at least on Outdoor and Main (not necessarily at the front, I'm thinking more like the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in SF where there is just a fenced part near the stage that is not super-packed).
Considering they upped capacities even though they had the event spread out over two weekends, something tells me they will try to increase it again despite the price increase.
For your health
Here is last year's presale for reference. It was $310 with all fees (minus $10 shipping).
Wasn't it $320, including the $10 shipping last year? That's a $30 increase. Pretty reasonable bump over 6 years.
EDIT: I guess it was $315. Still reasonable.

I'm surprised to see still no charge for day parking - I'd like to see them try charging for that vs bundling with shuttle passes.
But employee wages don't rise over time to meet the cost of living and nothing ever gets more expensive than it once was. Fucking corporate greed.
So much bad math in this thread. Damn stoners.
Looking closer at the FAQ, this is bound to make some people very unhappy:
Festival passes are limited to 2 per billing address.
Coachella 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.2, 13.2, 14.2
Outside Lands 10, 11, 13, 14
