The first tickets for Coachella 2020 have gone on sale, and here’s what the internet has to say

A select number of tickets went on sale for both weekends of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 14, and people clamoring to get tickets expressed their excitement, anxiety and frustration on social media as some were successful and others ran into website errors.

The festival, which will happen April 10-12 and April 17-19, 2020 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, has had an advance sale in the weeks after the previous festival wraps up for a number of years now. It’s the only opportunity for fans who want to take advantage of a payment plan. This year, all that was needed for a down payment was $25.

Before 11 a.m., people were excited as they prepared to purchase tickets. And they eagerly awaited the little blue man who moves across the waiting room screen to track their progress in line.

 

Sadly, the little blue running man was not moving any faster than he normally does, according to some users.

Perhaps watching the little blue man was the problem.

However, some serious problems began as the ticketing site crashed for people who were in the process of purchasing tickets.

Some people ended up giving up.

Some fans were able to purchase their tickets a day earlier on Thursday with a promotional code.

The advance sale was not without its frustrations, however.

But for one person, the best coworker ever came through.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates
