Coachella will sell lifetime festival passes as NFTs
Owners of the 10 lifetime NFTs will get tickets every year.
Coachella is selling lifetime festival passes for the first time — but you have to buy an NFT to get one. The music festival today launched an NFT marketplace built by FTX US, with three collections of NFTs going on sale on February 4th.
In addition to the 10 lifetime-pass NFTs, Coachella will sell 1,000 NFTs priced at $180 that buyers can use to redeem a physical Coachella photo book. The company will also sell 10,000 NFTs of “fan-favorite festival photos and never before heard soundscapes,” priced at $60 apiece. Minted on Solana, Coachella will donate a portion of NFT sales to GiveDirectly, Lideres Campesinas, and Find Food Bank.
