The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has become one of the largest festivals in the US. In 2012 three day festival was increased to include two full weekends in April and drew its biggest crowds since its inception in 1999 with reports of 80,000+ people attending each day, roughly 250,000 each weekend. With that being said, weekend 1 advance sale for 2013 is already sold out!

What bands are playing at Coachella 2013? No one knows for sure as the lineups won't even be officially announced until next year, yet people are more than willing to shell out $349 per ticket for general admission tickets. As of right now there are still VIP tickets available for $799.

The presale began this morning at 10am and by 11:55am all GA advance passes for weekend 1 were sold out. Crazy. Weekend 2 passes are still available at Coachella.com and by the looks of things, this presale won't last until the scheduled end date of Thursday, May 24th.

If you are thinking about wanting to maybe, possibly, probably go....you might want to get. your. tickets. NOW! A similar thing happened this past year with the presale and when the tickets went on sale to the general public, all GA passes for weekend 1 were sold out in less than 2 hours.

Even if you can't drop the $349 or $799 right now? Check out the payment plan option where you drop a minimum of a 20% down payment with 7 additional monthly payments through January 2013 (or until you pay in full).

BTW...I've got my ticket for weekend 2 \m/

UPDATE: 2:23pm - 5/17/12

All Advance GA and VIP tickets have sold out for BOTH weekends. Coachella put out this tweet around 2pm:
