COACHELLA 2013: Both weekends are sold out

Less than 24 hours after going on sale, all of the remaining tickets for the 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival have sold out.

The festival posted a photo on its social networks at 6:40 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, announcing the festival was sold out. Coachella posted that tickets for weekend one were sold out 13 minutes after they went on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29. However, some readers reported purchasing passes for the first weekend even after the sold-out photo was posted.

Coachella switched to a twin weekend format in 2012 (where all 140-plus artists played both weekends at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif.) due to rising demand for the festival.

An undisclosed amount of pre-sale tickets for 2013, which were offered in May 2012, sold out within hours.

Coachella announced its 2013 lineup, set for April 12-14 and April 19-21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, on Thuesday, Jan. 24, with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur, The Stone Roses and Phoenix topping the bill.

Did you get tickets? Was it easier/harder than last year? Let me know in the comments below.
