How many Coachella tickets can you buy in one lot, and what are the 2023 dates?
Like every year, Coachella 2023 is open to people of all ages. Not only this, but children under the age of five can access the festival for free.
Next year’s festival is due to take place on the 14-16 April (weekend one) and 21-23 April (weekend two). Both festival weekends will feature the same lineup, art, food and activities – as long as everything goes to plan.
Tickets buyers can buy a maximum of four (4) weekend passes per weekend. In other words, if you’re going in a group of five (or more), you’ll need to buy your tickets in two batches.

When will the Coachella 2023 lineup be announced?
So far, Frank Ocean is the only artist confirmed for Coachella 2023.
For the festival’s last outing, attendees had to wait until January 2022 for the full lineup to be announced.
Meanwhile, in the r/Coachella subreddit, those keeping track of the various smaller announcements appear to have changed the likelihood of one or two artists playing Coachella 2022 in September 2021. Changes to another similar thread took place in December.
In other words, festival-goers can expect lineup updates before the full lineup is revealed in (possibly) January 2023. But for now, it’s Frank Ocean.
