Featuring 10,000 editions, this NFT collection is priced at 60 US dollars per piece.

    Coachella minted its NFTs on Solana, as stated by Coachella’s Innovation lead, Sam Schoonover. They wanted to use such an energy-efficient blockchain platform that was inexpensive and didn’t require a high transaction fee and hence went for Solana.

    Sam also mentioned that selling these NFTs will further bridge the gap between them and their audience while also assisting artists, photographers, designers, and creators in generating revenue for their hard work.

    A portion of the proceeds from the revenue generated by selling NFT tickets will be donated by Coachella. The donations will go to some well-known non-profit organizations. The list includes GiveDirectly, a non-profit organization that allows people to donate directly to people in need; Lideres Campesinas, which works to strengthen the leadership and condition of farmworker women and girls; and Find Food Bank, a regional food bank in the Coachella Valley region.

    This is not the first time tickets were sold as NFTs, but lifetime passes are still very rare, especially for the Coachella Valley Music Festival.
    Previously, Kings of Leon auctioned off six distinct” “Golden Tick “t” NFTs in March of 2021, each of which guaranteed the owner four front-row seats to one concert of the band’s headlining tours for the rest of their lives.
