Advanced ticket sales for both weekends of the 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival are already over, roughly four hours after they began this morning at 10 a.m. Las Vegas time.
Last year's pre-sale lasted an entire week, with most of Weekend 1's total pass allotment and part of Weekend 2's snatched up before a single act on the 2012 lineup had been announced.
No word yet on how many (if any) passes for the 2013 SoCal desert fest were held back for a general sale. No acts for next year's edition have been revealed.
Prices for 2013 three-day passes were set at $349, up from $269 (plus fees) for last year's pre-sale and $285 (plus fees) for last year's general sale.
