New data examines most expensive festivals in the world; Coachella ranks as #1
Who knew that Coachella takes the lead as the most expensive music festival in the world? No. 1 Currency and the Guardian lay out the details pertaining to a handful of the costliest festivals out there, estimating that the average Coachella attendee spends about £187, or $277 per day. Despite the hype surrounding the avant-garde musical showcases that take place at the annual Indio affair, a good percentage of festival goers attend to signify their affluence as the social elite.
Tomorrowland nearly ties with Coachella, with the average daily cost weighing in at around $275 per day, though the average cost of beer and meals is significantly cheaper than at festivals like Coachella, Glastonbury and Main Square.
Regarding the world’s cheapest festival, Exit tops the list as one of the most affordable investments. The average daily cost at Exit, Serbia is about $80, with the entirety of the trip valued at $322. Perhaps Eastern Europe will become the new go-to destination now that numbers show how little a festival experience costs on that side of the globe.
