People will do whatever it takes to witness Bad Bunny and Frank Ocean live at Coachella - and that means paying mind-boggling prices for a simple sandwich.
The infamous Los Angeles festival has been slammed this year for charging a ridiculous amount for food and drink, as shown in the video below:
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was founded in 1999 and remains one of the largest and most famous music festivals in the world.
The annual music and arts festival is held annually at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, in the Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert - and right now, it's well underway up until 23 April.
It goes without saying though, if you want to be the best, you've also got to pay the best.
But if the tickets - that range from $549 (£441) and $1,069 (£860) - weren't enough, one TikToker has highlighted the 'the s**ttiest part of Coachella' and it's not going to the bathroom.
Jackie Tanti took to the platform over the weekend to share just how much she spent on the festival's first weekender.
Despite admitting that her four food items were 'actually pretty good,' it clearly wasn't worth the amount she paid.
She told her 17.8k followers: "Just so you all know, the two coffees and these two burritos cost us $64. Capitalism really popped off today."
FYI, that is the equivalent to approximately £51.
Fellow TikTokers were outraged, with user writing: "That 'burrito' is 50 percent tortilla."
"My jaw dropped," posted a second, while a third revealed: "I gasped."
Twitter user Mariana also revealed that she paid $12 for 'cold cereal and milk'.
I'm already lost for words and I've somehow got to finish writing this.
"Coachella is great but the prices of food is outrageous, even for the simple stuff," she wrote.
"This is on the Coachella Camp Grounds. WHY IS COLD CEREAL AND MILK $12?!?!?Avocado Toast for $20 just by adding a slice of tomato… #COACHELLA2023."
However, some people argued that if you're willing to pay an arm and leg for a ticket then you should expect nothing less when you get in.
"If you can afford to go to Coachella I mean, what do you expect? Like buddy to get IN is f**king expensive you think they’re going to stop the greed at food?’ one user said.
Another added: "Seeing TikToks of people complaining about the price of food at Coachella. with all due respect YOU were the one that paid $30 for a burrito.
"I don’t even blame the vendors, there will definitely be a CHUMP that pays that price."
Let's just hope that Frank Ocean finally drops that new album.
