The Delicious, Locally-Sourced Dinner Includes Tickets to the Sold-Out Festival
Written By: Gina Magnuson Having Trouble Getting Tickets to Coachella? Try Outstanding in the Field
Tickets to Coachella are hard to come by. The event sold out in under an hour, leaving music fans scrambling to score passes to 2017’s most buzzed-about music festival. While times may seem tough for adamant Coachella fans, hope is not lost! Outstanding in the Field is your ticket, not only to the festival, but to a four-course, locally sourced dinner courtesy of celebrity chefs.
Occurring each night of both Coachella weekends, the pop-up restaurant will take root in the Coachella VIP Rose Gardens. Showcasing fresh ingredients from Coachella Valley farms—some just a few blocks away from the festival grounds—the traveling dining experience includes meals curated by Alvin Cailin of Eggslut, Dakota Weiss of Estrella and Neal Fraser of Redbird.
Bringing fine dining to Coachella going for four years now, Outstanding in the Field aims to reconnect guests with the land their food comes from. Chef Jim Denevan put on his first table-to-farm dinner in 1999 and, since then, Outstanding in the Field has staged over 800 events around the world. Specializing in secret dinners in scenic locations ranging from sea coves to mountain tops to greenhouses, the rustic elegance of these meals adds to the communal experience.
“The long Outstanding in the Field table at Coachella is in the middle of the music and provides a unique way to share the story of food and its cultural significance with festival goers, ” said Denevan. “The Coachella dinners are louder than our events on farms, and the energy is incredible.”
Festival organizers have made a limited number of GA and VIP passes available. Guests can choose from one of two dinner seating times on one festival night. VIP access to the Rose Garden for the entire day is included with the dinner purchase.
3-Day General Admission Pass + 1 seat at the OITF dinner: $624 per person
3-Day VIP Pass + 1 seat at the OITF dinner: $1124 per person
Dinner Only; 1 seat at the OITF table: $225 per person. (*Note: You must already have a festival wristband if you choose this option. No one will be admitted to the dinner without a festival pass.)
