Nearly four months after ticket sales began, Weekend 2 tickets are still available on Coachella's official website, and both general admission and VIP tickets for both weekends remain readily accessible on third-party resale platforms.

This departure from the norm is highly unusual for the high-demand festival in Indio, California, where tickets for both weekends typically sell out within hours or days, according to the report.

There are several theories to explain this year's sluggish ticket sales, including the high prices, the perceived quality of the programming and a general feeling of festival fatigue among attendees.
