Okay, so you paid $375+ dollars for your Coachella tickets and now you want to know, “when do Coachella tickets get shipped?”
This year they were shipped in the 3rd week of March (for weekend 1 tickets) and the good news is that you may have already received them! I just checked my mailbox and there they were, just sitting in there, susceptible to mailbox theft. Whew, I’m glad I got mine. It’s a very comforting feeling, holding your Coachella wristband in your hand.
