Coachella 2018 Dates Set, Beyonce Confirmed to HeadlinePhotos by Larry Busacca/Getty, Kevork Djansezian/Getty Music News Coachella
It’s only been a little over a month since Coachella ended, but already performers are being announced and tickets are set to go on sale this Friday. Beyoncé was confirmed to headline 2018’s festival back in February after canceling her 2017 appearing at the advice of her doctor.
Headliners aren’t normally announced this early, but after the announcement that Beyonce was pregnant with twins (set to come any week now) and an iconic Grammys performance, ticket holders couldn’t hold a grudge against the “Formation” singer.
Passes for the arts and music fest already sell out at a speedy pace; last year’s $399 general admission passes sold out in just three hours, and tickets may go even quicker this year. But don’t take our word for it: 2015’s tickets sold out in 40 minutes when Drake, Jack White and AC/DC headlined, and festival-goers paid an average of $1,434.91 to see OutKast in 2014.
Beyoncé is known to drop music at any and all times of the day, often taking advantage of prescheduled events (remember where you were the day before the Super Bowl?). Coachella seems like the perfect event for new music, considering it will have been two years since the release of Lemonade.
No one can say for certain what Beyoncé might do at her Coachella set; 2014 saw a sister duet with Solange that fans still aren’t over. But there is no doubt the star will make up for missing last year’s scheduled performance.
The two, three-day weekend festival will take place April 13-15 and April 20-22. Tickets will be available for purchase on June 2 (this Friday) at 2 p.m. EST.
In the meantime, Beyoncé has been getting ready for the birth of her twins, starting the madness off with a “Carter push party” featuring guests including Serena Williams (the Beyoncé of Tennis, who is also pregnant) and LaLa Anthony, as well as a Destiny’s Child reunion.
