Organizers Expand Coachella Festival To Two Weekends
Rock fans headed to Coachella next year will be seeing double when they look at the 2012 lineup. Organizers announced on the Coachella website that the next music and arts festival in Indio, California will be made up of two “identical” weekends, or as they put it: “same lineup, same art, same place, different people.” They said the change was brought on by an increase in demand as well as a rise in counterfeit tickets. This year’s festival — which took place in April — was reportedly sold out in a week.
As for next year, 2012 passes are set to go on sale this Friday, June 3rd, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. They will be available until June 10th, at 1:00 a.m. Eastern. The 2012 Coachella Music and Arts Festival is scheduled to take place from April 13th through the 15th and April 20th through the 22nd. For more information, visit Coachella.com.
