Passes for the three-day festival in the southern California desert went on sale online at 11 a.m. (1900 GMT) and one hour later Coachella social media accounts said that all tickets were gone.

Coachella, which has become one of the world's best-known festivals, draws more than 180,000 people a year over two consecutive three-day weekends with identical lineups.

Guns N' Roses, whose 1987 album "Appetite for Destruction" remains the top-selling US debut ever, are scheduled as headliners on the two Saturdays -- April 16 and April 23.

The festival will mark the first time that singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash play together since 1993 when they ended a tour in Argentina amid personality disputes.

Other prominent acts at Coachella this year will include LCD Soundsystem, the influential New York electronic band from the 2000s that is also reuniting, as well as pioneering gangsta rapper Ice Cube and singers Ellie Goulding and Sia.
