Can’t make Coachella this year? You’re not alone. And with all the dust, crowding, and standing under the horrible dry sun, let’s be honest—you may not be that sorry to miss it.

The only (big) drawback is that you might not catch your favorite bands.

Luckily, there’s hope—many of the bands Coachella-bound are stopping in the Bay Area before or after the festival. Check out our list of acts stopping through San Francisco and Oakland. Some may be sold out, but keep an eye open for late released tickets on WillCall, and check StubHub for tickets to can’t-miss shows.
