Damn. A quick glance at Craigslist shows that long sold-out Coachella passes will run you upwards of $500 (and much more), while camping passes will run you about $350. We just found out that Gilt City is doing a special Coachella event that, in light of all that, sounds like an awesome deal. The pricier package ($1,150) gives you VIP access to amenities like an open bar, toilets with running water and bathrooms with AC; and luxury shuttle service between the the grounds and a number of area hotels and stops. The passes go on sale tomorrow. [Racked Inbox, Craigslist, Gilt City]
