UPDATE: The first weekend of Coachella is in the books. After Coachella got pushed back — and pushed back — over the last two years because of the pandemic, fans finally returned to Indio, California, once again for this year’s music festival to see Harry Styles debut new songs, Billie Eilish make history as the festival’s youngest headliner ever, and newly announced headliners the Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia perform the final night of Weekend 1.
In February, Coachella announced it wouldn’t require those attending the festival to wear masks or provide proof of vaccination this year, though that doesn’t mean masking up is completely out of the question this year if you’re heading to Weekend 2. Coachella also explains “face coverings are recommended to protect against desert dust,” so you still might want to stock up beforehand. (We also recommend packing a pair of affordable shades, too.)
As for finding last-minute Coachella tickets for Weekend 2, here’s what to know about buying your weekend passes and making your way to the festival. (And if you’re just looking for the best Coachella parties, we know how you can get into those, too.)
Coachella 2022: Festival Dates, Schedule
If you’re a little confused about when Coachella is this year, that might be because the festival is split up into two consecutive weekends.
The first weekend of Coachella ran from April 15-17, 2022, and the second weekend goes from April 22-24, 2022 at the Empire Polo Ground in Indio, California.
You currently have to join waitlists on Coachella’s site for passes, but if you still want to attend the second weekend’s dates, it’s still possible to find last-minute Coachella tickets online. Read on for more information about how to score three-day Coachella passes to the festival this year.

How to Get Tickets to Tao Desert Nights
After a three-year hiatus, the popular hospitality and nightlife company Tao Group is back at Coachella this weekend for a series of “Tao Desert Nights” parties. Taking place on all three days (and evenings) of Coachella Weekend One, the parties bring the popular day club, Tao Beach, to the Coachella Valley, with music, drinks, “aerial activations” and other special performances. Usually located inside the Venetian Hotel in Vegas, this a way to experience the popular Tao Beach Dayclub at night. Tao will also introduce “Tao Desert Daze,” an all-new experience taking its nighttime lifestyle to the day with poolside activations and performances.
Tickets to Tao Desert Nights are available by invite-only, though there are a host of sponsors this year, including the cannabis brand Jeeter, Casamigos, PrettyLittleThing, Rémy Martin, Evian, Red Bull, Miraval, Enroot and Vineyard Brands. In other words: you may be able to score a ticket through one of the presenting brands.
How to Get Tickets to HP Antarctic Dome
The dome, which is located on the festival grounds, will feature a 3D art film created by nine digital artists in collaboration with electronic music duo ODESZA. HP says the film includes four songs from ODESZA’s new album, which the duo will be debuting at the festival. It will then be released as an NFT.
The Antarctic Dome activation is open to anyone with a Coachella festival pass — no additional ticket or RSVP needed.
Tinder “Festival Mode”
Another fun activation happening at Coachella this year? “Festival Mode” on Tinder. Using the app’s “Tinder Explore” feature, users can enter “Festival Mode,” which will then connect them with other members attending the same event. Your profile gets added to the pool of people who are attending the same festival — increasing your chance to find someone with the same musical tastes and interests.
The app calls it an “all-access pass for members to find fellow festival goers and check the vibe with someone new before the show.” While the activation is launched in time for Coachella, expect to see “Festival Mode” at Stagecoach, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and EDC Las Vegas too.
