Rich Fury/Getty Images for Coachella – Festivalgoers during the 2019 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival on April 21, 2019 in Indio, California.
The festival plans to be back in 2022.
Festival discovery and booking platform Festicket announced an expansion of its partnership with Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival as the festival’s exclusive UK & Europe ticket partner.
Under the agreement, “Festicket will continue to provide Coachella’s international booking services in nine languages, accepting more than forty currencies and sixteen local payment methods, alongside promoting a wide range of ticket options and travel and accommodation packages.”
Festicket data shows that presales for the 2022 edition of Coachella, which launched June 4, included 54 countries outside North America, “displaying the demand for music tourism around the world is as strong as ever,” according to Festicket.
Coachella organizers Goldenvoice and Festicket first entered into a partnership in 2019, resulting in 3.2 million visits to the festival’s pages and ticket and travel package sales to fans in 63 different countries.
Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which takes place across two weekends each year at the Empire Polo Club in the Southern California desert, just won Music Festival of the Decade at this year’s Pollstar Awards.

After two years of postponement, the 2022 festival will take place April 15-17 (Weekend 1) and 22-24 (Weekend 2).
Festicket CEO & Co-founder Zack Sabban commented, “Coachella has a reputation around the world like no other festival. We got into the events game because of festivals like Coachella and it’s an honor to now be working alongside the team at Goldenvoice.
“The fact that Festicket fans from fifty four countries have already bought tickets for 2022 is such a positive sign. Despite all the doom and gloom the pandemic has brought, music lovers are ready to get back to the experiences they live for and are ready to support the events they love, now – when it counts – even if the events aren’t for another 9 months. That is brilliant to see.”
