If you don't have tickets yet for the first weekend of Coachella -- which starts this afternoon -- don't bother. These prices are fucking insane.

As you can see from the SeatGeek chart above, prices on the secondary market (places like Stub Hub and eBay) are absolutely out of control right now.

Usually, the weeks leading up to the festival see the prices dropping, but the opposite case is true right now. Weekend one passes now average almost $1900, while weekend two passes are up over $550, both much higher than last year.

Our theory? Stankonia mania, baby. Despite dubious predictions about Outkast's ticket-selling power, they seem to be the major draw to the desert. Nothing against the other headliners, Arcade Fire and Muse, but they tour regularly, and it seems unlikely that most fans would pay hundreds of dollars to see them.

Or, gulp, thousands.
