Coachella Could Be Fined After Lana Del Rey’s Headlining Set Ran Long

Personally, I feel like they should have been happy that Lana stuck around longer than advertised.

Organizers of the Coachella Music Festival may be fined $28,000 after Lana Del Rey’s headlining set ran long on Friday night.

The city of Indio, California, where the fest is held, has strict rules on curfew and issues a $20,000 fine for a show not ending promptly and a $1,000 fine for every minute that goes past said curfew.

According to US Weekly:

Coachella missed the cutoff time on all three nights, going over by 25 minutes on Friday, 22 minutes on Saturday and 25 minutes on Sunday.Curfews aside, thousands of festivalgoers were treated to a special concert event from Del Rey, 38, this weekend. In addition to performing the biggest hits of her career, the Grammy winner surprised attendees by bringing out Camila Cabello onstage.

Ok, so folks got a little extra Lana AND a Camila appearance. When people know that they’re getting that level of performance, they’ll come back. Coachella will be more than ok after paying the fines.
