Last updated 1/5/2018 at Noon

Passes for the 2018 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival go on sale at noon today.

The 19th annual festival is slated for the weekends of April 13-15 and April 20-22 at its usual venue, the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio.

The Weeknd, Beyonce and Eminem were announced as headliners Tuesday, when festival organizers released the full lineup.

Passes will be available at General admission passes are available for $429, while general admission passes with shuttle passes are $504. VIP passes for $999 will gain ticket holders access to three venue VIP areas. Car and tent camping passes are also available for $113 each.

For desert residents who miss out on Friday's sale, a locals-only sale will likely be held close to the festival dates, providing extra passes only for Coachella Valley residents.

The main acts will each be making their first headlining appearances at Coachella.

Eminem previously appeared as a guest with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg in 2012 but has not been billed as a festival act before.

Beyonce was initially slated to perform last year, but had to bow out after announcing she was pregnant with twins. Lady Gaga took over as a replacement, but Beyonce pledged to perform in 2018 when she announced her cancellation.

The lineup marks the first time in the festival's history that a rock band will not be among the headlining performers.
