Get your Coachella sunnies ready and brush up on your NFT knowledge. Coachella is selling lifetime festival passes for the first time but you have to buy an NFT to get one. Coachella has announced a new collaboration with cryptocurrency exchange FTX.

The partnership will auction off lifetime passes to the festivals as NFTs. The the Coachella Keys Collection are a group of 10 NFTs that allow holders lifetime tickets to the festival. Along with granting lifetime festival access they also provide VIP on-site experiences for the 2022 edition of Coachella.
