how can they change locations? i'd wouldn't be called coachella then. It is named after the freaking area.

Coachellafest has been in Indio for the past couple of eons.

The actual city "Coachella" is a shithole.

please god no...we've got a place which is only a 25-35min walk (door to entrance) - changing venues would be a TRAVESTY for us...

Indio, alongside with Palm Desert and Coachella are in the COACHELLA VALLEY, i think the festival is named after the valley not the city. And the actual cities of Indio and Palm Desert are also shitholes.

Maybe that's why it's called "Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival" ;)

Anyway, the polo grounds are actually being moved a couple miles south-east. I think future Coachellas will be held there.

Heard there was a land speculator looking at the property (for condos of all things) which would effectively shut out Goldenvoice from holding the festival at the Polo Grounds. Any news on THAT rumor?

Unless the plans have been changed, they're building a resort on the polo grounds in the near future. I would imagine that the festival will move after another year or two.

There's a much larger equestrian center being built a few miles east in Thermal (no too far away) it's not complete yet but it's huge. The condo rumor at the empire polo grounds is true so maybe it will be moved, plus allot of housing is being built around that area so it's bound to happen.

I'm going to have to say false too.
But I heard that rumor that something else bought where the coachella fest is held and that it's the last year thats why theres three days. But it's not true.

If they do move it, which I believe they will, it will only be a couple miles east.

Simple as this. If it was the last Coachella in this area, it would be advertised as that.

SubBass49

not necessarily...they have a good enough lineup that they dont need to advertise it like that. And they may not know for sure anyway...

i think the Festival will be moving with the people running the Polo grounds now. As a couple people have been saying, there's a new equestrian center being built a few miles southeast. It's on a large plot of land next to the Thermal Airport. it's perfect. artists can fly in on their cesnas and get to the Festival no problem.

Hey there - just to put this thread to rest.

The developer in question is Alex Hagen - who is already the owner of Empire Polo.
Were Coachella to move, it would resurrect at the Eldoradeo Polo Field [adjacent to Empire] and the present location of the camping grounds..

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

<god, I'd hoped my 1st post would have been slightly more monumental than this> :)

This isn't (wasn't) a rumor at all, in the LA Times article (the one where Paul T talks about a lower attendance cap), he says there were plans to develop the polo grounds and one thing Goldenvoice did to stop the development, was to put on Stagecoach, and commit to those weeks for the area's growth. Whether or not development happens in the near future is still to be seen, but it will most likely happen sooner or later the way that area has been growing.

So the relocation story prolly stemmed from this possibility.

Is it true that they're selling/closing Six Flags in Califa????
