Coachella 2018 Lineup Announced – How to Get The Cheapest Tickets

Coachella 2018 lineups have finally just been announced!  The festival will be returning once again for two three-day weekends in April. Weekend One will be held April 13-15 and Weekend Two will be held April 20-22.  We at TickPick have got all of the important information about who will be performing this year and how to get passes below!

Who Will Be Headlining Coachella 2018?

Headlining the Friday shows (April 13th & 20th) will be R&B superstar The Weeknd, who is coming off of a tremendously-successful Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour of 2017, which sold out arenas all over North America.  Fans who missed out on catching him live during that tour will surely be scrambling for passes in order to see him headline this festival. Some other major acts to perform on these dates as well will be fellow emerging R&B star SZA, the singer-songwriter St. Vincent, and hip-hop artist Vince Staples.

Headlining the Saturday shows during Coachella (April 14th & 20th) will be pop superstar Beyonce, who needs no introduction.  After being advised by her doctors to miss out on headlining last year’s scheduled headlining of Coachella due to her pregnancy at the time, she promised that she would make it up to her fans in 2018 by returning this spring, and now she’s making good on that promise.  Also performing on these dates are hip-hop acts Tyler, The Creator, Post Malone, and rock band alt-J.

Rap legend Eminem will be headlining the Sunday shows on April 15th & 22nd.  Fans have been clamoring for an Eminem-headlined tour for years now, and many are speculating that Mr. Mathers’ rearing of his head to headline major festivals is an indication of a potential announcement of a return to touring soon.  Other major acts on these days will be electronic duo Odesza, rising hip-hop star Cardi B, hip-hop trio Migos, and successful rock band Portugal. The Man, among others.

Check out the graphic below for the official full lineup for this year’s festival.

How to Get the Cheapest Coachella 2018 Passes of Any Resale Marketplace

If you weren’t able to secure Coachella passes directly through the website’s original onsale, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Passes can still be purchased from secondary marketplaces, although the prices will not be at face value. With the massive popularity of Coachella, market prices are anticipated to be on the higher side, but that doesn’t mean that good deals can’t be had – if you know where to look.

With high prices come high 10-20% service fees with many marketplaces, but not TickPick.
