The New York Times is reporting tickets will start at $500, going up to $9,000. Tickets go on sale Saturday.

I Might Be Wrong: Coachella, SnowBall and other festivals shine in the middle

There’s been a ton of conjecture about how Coachella is going to be this year. Everyone from Diplo to your Aunt Susie has an opinion and, of course, the most vocal ones are on the level of: “This is the worst festival lineup ever!” Surely, the headliners aren’t that exciting (especially considering Colorado has two outta three in Broomfield in the coming months), but A.) The Black Keys can rage it in front of a big crowd, B.) Radiohead always (and I mean always) kills it live and C.) Dre and Snoop together will be super fun, especially with the former’s long-awaited “Detox” forthcoming.
