Orange County is only a few dusty hours from Indio, the desert city perhaps best known as the home of the Coachella Music Festival, so it's unsurprising that a market for tickets to the sold-out show is booming locally.
Coachella officially kicks off today but tickets to the festival, which is spread out over two weekends, have been sold out for months.
But that doesn't mean that they're not still being sold.
The hot commodities are a commonplace item on websites such as the Orange County section of Craigslist.org, which saw posts about festival tickets spike into the hundreds each day this week.
While tickets may be plentiful, they sure aren't cheap.
One person in Lake Forest is selling a single ticket for this weekend's festivities for $600.
Another is selling a $2,600 package of four tickets, four shuttle passes and a camping pass for the second weekend at Coachella—or single tickets at $550 a pop.
A ticket bought directly from Coachella (when that was possible) started at $285, but quickly increased in price with additional expenses, including a $3 charity fee, $9 facility fee, $5 shuttle fee, $10 shipping fee and $29 service/convenience fee.
That's all before paying for a place to stay. The cheapest camping passes (also officially sold out) start at $82.50, plus a $10 service fee.
In exchange, concertgoers get a three day party and the festival line-up—a smorgasbord of more than 140 artists, ranging from house music superstar David Guetta to indie duo the Black Keys.
