Beyoncé revealed through her representatives on Thursday that she has decided to pull out of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April on the “advice of her doctors,” since the the singer is pregnant with twins.
The decision makes perfect sense, but it caused something close to a panic among Beyoncé fans who had already purchased tickets for the festival ― which run $399 for a normal three-day pass and $899 for a VIP pass.
Beyoncé did also announce Thursday that she will headline the festival in 2018, and we reached out to Coachella to find out if the organizers planned to honor this year’s tickets next year.
We’ll update this post if they get back to us. But on the Coachella website, Beyoncé fans will find little reason for optimism. In a section entitled “NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGE,” the festival organizers clearly state, “This ticket is not subject to any refund, bears no cash value, and is not redeemable for cash. Artist and set times are subject to change without notice.”
That’s unfortunate for Bey’s fans, since tickets for the festival went on sale (and sold out hours later) less than a month before Beyoncé announced her pregnancy to the world on Instagram. Tough luck to the highest degree.
That said, you can always try and sell them online.
