Coachella 2016 Stream, Schedule, Recommendations, Cancellations, the Map & more
On April 15 of this year, the sixteenth Coachella Festival begins a two-weekend run. 100,000 attendees per day are expected, each of whom will splash out $375 on admission and considerably more on refreshments, merchandise, transport and accommodation.
While last year’s box office gross of $84, 264, 264 from 198,000 tickets sold made Coachella the most profitable music festival in the world, this year’s show, featuring reformed headliners Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem, has a shot at breaking that record. [Telegraph]
