The first weekend of this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival sold out in just 40 minutes, while both weekends of the festival sold out in six hours. Tickets for the two-weekend, six-day festival went on sale January 4th at 11 AM PST and at 5:02 PM PST the Coachella Twitter account announced tickets were completely sold out. 

Despite this year's tickets flying off the virtual shelf, the upcoming edition actually took twice as long to sell out than the past two years. In 2017 and 2018, Coachella sold out in only three hours. 

Three days ago, Coachella revealed the lineup for this April's party in the desert.  The three highest-billed acts are Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, and Ariana Grande, who at 25 years of age, is the youngest headlining act in Coachella history. Grande is also the fourth female act to headline the annual festival. 

It was reported that Kanye West was set to headline the festival, but dropped out due to disagreements over stage design.

Unlike last year's iteration, EDM is front and center in 2019. Dance music superstars like Diplo, DJ Snake, Dillon Francis, Zedd, and Bassnectar obtained significant placements on the lineup, while the return of Gesaffelstein and a rare set from the enigmatic Aphex Twin are on full display. 

Stay tuned for more coverage on Coachella 2019.
