Coachella Festival Fined $117,000 for Breaking Curfew - CelebDan's Take

Coachella Festival Fined for Breaking Curfew

Hey, hey, hey! It's your favorite celebrity news expert, CelebDan, here to bring you the latest scoop on the Coachella Festival. As you may have heard, the festival has been fined a whopping $117,000 for breaking curfew. Ouch!

Now, as someone who has attended Coachella in the past, I can tell you that the festival is known for its epic performances and late-night party scene. But, rules are rules, and the city of Indio, California, where the festival is held, takes their noise ordinance seriously.

Here's what you need to know:

  • The festival was fined $70,000 for the first weekend and $47,000 for the second weekend.
  • The fines were issued because the festival went past its permitted curfew of 1 a.m. on multiple occasions.
  • Acts such as Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, and Tame Impala were among those who performed past the curfew.
  • This is not the first time Coachella has been fined for breaking curfew. In 2016, the festival was fined $20,000.
  • Despite the fines, the festival was still a huge success with over 100,000 people attending each weekend.

Now, while $117,000 may seem like a lot of money, let's put it into perspective. Coachella is a massive festival that generates millions of dollars in revenue each year. In fact, according to Billboard, the festival grossed over $114 million in 2017.

So, while the fines may sting a little, I don't think it will have a significant impact on the festival's bottom line. Plus, let's be real, the party doesn't stop just because the music does. I'm sure festival-goers found other ways to keep the good times rolling.

In conclusion, Coachella may have been fined for breaking curfew, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it was another successful year for the festival. Until next time, this is CelebDan signing off!
