Goldenvoice had this to say about the incident, "Crowds were larger than expected, and larger than Weekend 1. There were some minor crowd control issues which were handled quickly.  Not everyone was able to get a ticket."

The event promoter has confirmed that the locals wristbands have "officially" sold out, marking an end of local sales for Coachella 2017.
