Coachella’s parent company, Goldenvoice has partnered with FTX US to develop an environmentally friendly marketplace on Solana. Using this platform, you’ll be able to bid on or purchase the NFTs included in Coachella’s NFT collection. The company says that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Give Directly, Lideres Campesinas, and Find Food Bank. A royalty will also be provided to the creators of the NFT collection.

With the Coachella Key to the Coachella Stage, you’ll get many of the incentives discussed above. However, rather than receive a professionally prepared meal in the Rose Garden, you and one other person will be given access to view one performance at the Coachella stage in 2022 that gives you a front and center view.

Coachella Key to the VIP Compound

The Coachella Key to the VIP Compound combines the incentives offered with its other NFT Keys. In addition, you’ll also receive access to a fully stocked trailer located in the VIP compound in 2022. As exciting as this all sounds, the Coachella Key to the VIP Compound comes at a very steep price.
