Passes for the 2019 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival went on sale at 11 a.m. Friday, with passes for the first weekend selling out in a matter of hours.

The festival is slated for the weekends of April 12-14 and April 19-21 at its usual venue, the Empire Polo Grounds, with headliners Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande slated to lead a stacked lineup that includes Janelle Monae, Solange, Khalid, The 1975, Kid Cudi, Weezer and Zedd.

By 1:15 p.m., festival organizers announced that weekend one passes were sold out, though the festival website still showed first weekend Safari and car camping passes available. Passes for the second weekend remained available.

General admission passes were for sale for $429, while a shuttle pass can be added for a total of $509.

Other options include $999 VIP passes and anywhere from $2,500 to $9,500 for luxurious on-site camping accommodations such as the Lake Eldorado Teepee, Lake Eldorado Tent or Safari Camping.

Customers were limited to two passes per purchase, with the exception of certain four-person packages such as the Lake Eldorado Tent.

Passes were expected to sell out quick, though a pair of locals-only sales for Coachella Valley residents are typically held closely before each festival weekend.
