No, you have not missed the details about a local Coachella sale.
Goldenvoice will release details about the sale in “the next week or so,” a spokeswoman told The Desert Sun on Tuesday.
Anxiety over the access to a semi-private sale hyped up this week after Coachella Weekend 1 wristbands began arriving in mailboxes around the world.
Goldenvoice has not released any details at all about who will be eligible or when the sale will be held.
The local sale was much earlier last year , when the promoter sold 1,000 passes to east Coachella Valley residents on Jan. 28 for each of the two Coachella weekends and Stagecoach.
Last year it was open to residents of ZIP codes 92201, 92203, 92236, 92241, 92253 and 92274 are allowed to purchase the tickets.
