Coachella 2012 Will Be Two Weekends

This just in: next year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be held over two weekends in April 2012. The festival’s website claims that the move is an effort to bring even more people in to experience the event; an accommodation to those who missed out because of ticket sell-outs and scalpers in previous years. In accordance with that aim, Coachella states that both weekends of the festival will be identical in everything but the attendees: this means the exact same lineup, two weekends in a row. There’s no telling what bands will agree to play the same festival twice in a row, but Danny DeVito’s already on board.

Advance sale passes go on sale on Friday, June 3rd at 10am PST, for one week until Friday June 10th, at 10pm PST. These passes are the only ones that will be available through Coachella’s payment plan of 10% down and 8 equal monthly payments (although you can always just front the whole price). The price of three-day passes will be $269 (plus fees).
