Sorry But No Weed Allowed at Coachella This Year

Coachella Sorry But No Weed Allowed at Coachella This Year

The 2018 edition of Coachella, arguably North America's most popular music festival, is gearing up to be one of the most memorable in the event's history.

California has officially legalized weed - but Coachella still isn't down with it. Coachella, the famous Californian festival, regularly tops the poll - aside from 2016 when Desert Trip was awarded top spot. "Even in 2018 and beyond".

The Frequently Asked Questions section of the Coachella website includes a boilerplate response about whether festival attendees can bring marijuana to the festival now that the drug is legal in all forms in California for anyone over the age of 21. It ends with a promise to change the answer if the answer changes, but it doesn't look like concert goers will be lighting up at 4:20 on 4/20 this year unless they skip out on the afternoon bands. Tickets sold out just three hours after they went on sale January 5.

The Coachella promoter is Goldenvoice and the festival itself will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. Under the new law, each town can decide whether to allow recreational weed sales, and - sorry to harsh your Queen Bey buzz - Indio's decided it's a no.

Detroit rap icon Eminem, pop music queen Beyoncé, and R&B crooner The Weeknd are set to headline the 2018 edition of Coachella, industry sources tell outcome of Sound.
