Coachella Music Festival Ticket Information
Coachella tickets for the first weekend of 2015 will be sold only in the form of three-day passes. All the passes will be issued as wristbands, which will need to remain on your wrist for the entire span of April 10-12. Make sure the wristband does not get damaged over the course of the weekend, as they cannot be replaced.
General admission passes will allow you full access to the festival grounds, but you can also choose VIP options to have additional access to two private areas on site that feature special restrooms, shaded areas, and special food and drink vendors.
Coachella Music Festival General Information
From April 10-12, no attendees will be allowed to bring blankets, chairs, pets, outside food and beverages, large bags, audio-video recorders, or professional cameras to Coachella. Umbrellas are also prohibited, but note that all performances will take place rain or shine, so it's advisable to bring a poncho. During this first weekend, you'll be able to take advantage of amenities on site like first aid tents, ATMs, lockers, and general stores selling essential items for the outdoor festival, including water bottles, hats, sunscreen, and more.
Coachella Music Festival Concessions Information
Every year, Coachella offers several different food options to cater to unique diets, and 2015 will be no different. Attendees will be able to buy vegan and vegetarian meals, as well as standard festival fare from a number of local vendors from April 10-12.

Several motel and hotel options are located within 10 miles of the Empire Polo Club grounds, but you should plan to book your spot early, as rooms are likely to fill up quickly for April 10-12.
