Fun Facts about Coachella this year (via StubHub):
Proving it’s Day 1, headliner status is justified: Coachella headliner AC/DC is the #1 search of Coachella performers this year on StubHub. Of the Top 5 Coachella performers searched on Stub Hub, three of are newer acts, with Alt-J and Hozier both receiving more searches than headliner Jack White and Alabama Shakes.
Alt-J’s Moment: It looks like Alt-J could prove to be the buzz-band of the festival and summer touring season if these searches are any indication in rising popularity and coming on strong after a sold out MSG show this week and the addition of more dates to their spring through summer tour. Alt-J sales are up 56% on StubHub this year.
If You Build It, They Will Come: Nearly 50% of the fans travel near and far for the festival. While 1 in 6 Coachella attendees are from LA and the next most represented cities are NY, SF, and San Diego, interestingly, 46% of Coachella attendees come from out of state and the same number (46%) come from out of state for Lollapalooza (via StubHub purchases).
