Coachella 2012 Announces Two Festivals?

“We’re excited to announce Coachella 2012 will be held over TWO WEEKENDS. The advance sale featuring the Coachella Payment Plan will be available starting Friday, June 3rd, 2011 at 10am. For more info please visit” – Coachella Facebook page

The Coachella Music Festival announces two weekends for next years festival. The first weekend will start from April 13th – 15th and the second from April 20th – 22th. In effort for people to experience the festival, it will be expanded into two weekends. “We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people”, It makes us all wonder how are they going to pull off two of the same exact lineups? Wouldn’t it make more sense to have two different lineups and art to make each weekend more unique? Only time will tell.

Passes go on sale beginning this Friday, June 3rd, 2011, at 10am PST until the following Friday June 10th, 2011, at 10pm PST. This advance sale will be the only opportunity to take advantage of the Coachella Payment Plan. Passes will be available through a payment plan of 10% down and 8 equal monthly payments OR by payment in full. The price of three-day passes remains at $269 plus fees for the sixth consecutive year.
