Coachella Takes Fourth Spot In Best Value Music Festivals In USA

New findings from McLuck reveal fascinating insights into the economics of America's mega-music festivals in 2024. Coachella Festival, renowned for its star-studded lineups, emerges as the fourth-best value festival this year, costing attendees a mere $2.98 per performing artist.

Breaking down the numbers, a three-day general admission pass to Coachella, priced at $499, grants access to a whopping 167 acts. The festival, held in the Coachella Valley from April 12th to 14th, boasts an impressive lineup including Lana Del Rey, Tyler, the Creator, and Doja Cat. For those seeking a VIP experience, an additional $570 unlocks exclusive perks on top of the general admission ticket.

McLuck's study, which scrutinized ticket prices and artist rosters across major festivals, ranked Summerfest as the ultimate value destination for music lovers in 2024. Billed as "The World's Largest Music Festival," this Milwaukee-based extravaganza offers a nine-day general admission pass for just $130, equating to approximately $0.62 per performing artist. Headliners such as Mötley Crüe, SZA, and Lil Uzi Vert grace the diverse lineup, ensuring an unforgettable experience.

EDC Las Vegas secures the second-best value slot, with a ticket price of $379 granting access to 249 EDM artists, translating to a mere $1.52 per artist. Taking place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from May 17th to 19th, this electrifying event features top-tier performers like Tiesto and David Guetta. VIP packages cater to those craving a deluxe experience, starting at $1,200.

Hard Summer claims the third spot for best value, offering 74 artists for just $2.73 per performance. Held over August 3rd and 4th at Hollywood Park in Los Angeles, a two-day general admission ticket priced at $202 unlocks a stellar lineup including Disclosure and Jamie XX. VIP upgrades are available for an additional $142, providing access to exclusive amenities.

Lollapalooza Chicago follows closely behind, delivering big-name acts to Grant Park for $3.10 per artist. With headliners such as Hozier and The Killers, a four-day general admission pass costs $409, promising an unforgettable experience across eight stages.

Rounding out the list are Sonic Temple Festival ($3.36), Sunfest ($3.69), Sick New World ($4.58), When We Were Young Festival ($6.13), and Lovers & Friends Fest ($7.39).
