Which States Have Most Interest In Coachella?

Based on our research, Washington D.C. is the area where folks are seeking tickets the most outside of California.

With D.C. (80 search interest score) topping our list, technically the state that’s most enthusiastic about this year’s Coachella festival is Nevada (39 search interest score). Then comes another of California’s neighbors, Arizona (33 search interest score).

Another nearby state, Utah, is fourth nationally at 30. Kentucky (22 points), Georgia (16), New York (15), Florida (9), Texas and Illinois (7 each) round out the list. Many of those states have legal sports wagering but folks in the Golden State still await legal California sportsbook apps.
