When has Coachella ever been in May?

2004 May 1st and May 2nd.. And 2005 With the second day being May 1st

April 25th - 27th..

suprefan, is that a guess? or do you know in fact those are the dates?

Ok, I'm a dork. Let me re-phrase: when has Coachella ever been past May 2nd? ;)

I will safely say it will be the April dates. If they start doing Coachella and Stagecoach back to back then it will be like that.

Once October 9th and 10th 1999. :rolleyes

You said "After May" and October is after May. You didnt say "with the exception of 99"



Now now, Amy. Don't let your PMS get the best of you.


Ouch!

just get married after may 4th, or do you really want to get married between apr 27 and may 4?

suprefan
02-05-2007, 08:38 PM
I think they are asking so they can make arrangements to plan it before or after so there has to be like a 3 week window either way...


I have this fear that whenever I plan to get married, some insanely good concert will happen that day and I have to bite the bullet and not go...

...I never thought of that, having to choose wedding over an insanely good concert. I'd say it's a reasonable fear!

Jumping the gun eh? So let's start next years rumors!! I predict Coldplay (New album coming out) and Radiohead being 2 of the headliners next year..Along with a reunited Beatles with John Lennon resurrected from the dead!! ( Sorry had to throw some sarcasm...)

02-06-2007, 04:33 PM
coldplay can stay at home...please bring Radiohead (two nights - they have enough material) and some version of Pink Floyd (preferably Gilmour but I'll take Waters)....

oh we can all dream, can't we?

Pink Floyd? Do you want the thing to sell out in -2 seconds? Hell they could fill the grounds to 100,000 just for PF...Then again..Dark Side of the Moon in the Coachella moonlight...

Radiohead's got to be there next year. If you can bring back the Chili's to headline that quickly than you can certainly do the same for Radiohead.

I predict Radiohead. Will we finally get Smashing Pumpkins after they've already been whored out to every other festival in the world? Possibly.

suprefan
02-09-2007, 06:48 PM
Somebody dont kill em for this one... No Doubt, album coming next year(finally).. Just saying....................... Still might get upset if Radiohead does it because I want them in 2009 when it will be 10 years... Pumpkins sound solid, and f**k Coldplay......

I would just book a hotel for the two weekends that happen end of april and first week of may. I am 99.9% positive that it will be one of those two weekends. Then when you know for sure, just cancel the other weekend.

Look, Radiohead would never headline with Coldplay. It's common knowledge that Radiohead hates Coldplay, and for pretty good reason. Never going to happen. I registered with this board because I really needed to say that.

+10 for persistence!
Papers have been known to make errors. However, if "you" are 100% certain, and I don't know you from Adam or read the local newspapers out in the middle of the fucking dessert - I'll just pop down to the travel agents and make my arrangements...howz that!

Wow, I don't think RH "hates" Coldplay as much as you think. Thom just called them "Lifestyle music" because of how commercial they were. I still love Coldplay though and their 2005 performance counts as of the best best I have seen in my 7 Coachellas.

april was too hot this year. my boyfriend checked the weather for stagecoach (which was in may) out of curiousity and they had like 80 degree weather! i was so sad at this cause the heat killed this year.

as for wedding why not the second week in may or the first week in april. i think that's a far enough gap to keep it in the spring and away from the coachella dates. anyway, CONGRATS!

Um, it's that hot every year, give or take a few degrees. The average high temperature for the entire month of April is 89F-with the average high temperature for April 25th (per se) is 90F and up as each day goes.

It's a valley desert-it's going to be dry and hot during the day and cool at night. Bottom line.

I can confirm its going to be on "April 25-27, '08." - source: President of golden voice / coachella

I also asked if they could confirm if RATM are playing, I was told they only just started the booking process.

I doubt RATM will be playing, as the start Japan and Australia tour... which might lead to Europe... it would suck if they play UK or any European country when I'm at coachella 2008

scoop49er
11-02-2007, 08:07 AM
yeah RATM wont play coachella 08. no reason to repeat it plus they will play outside the us for the first part of the year. expect them to play the major european festivals in june. pretty much a lock!

yeah im gonna reserve a room today. this is the first week ive started to do my coachella 08 research since my concert season is over... so time to plan and save up.

In related news, the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, also held at Empire Polo Field in Indio, is set for April 25-27. Lineup details are expected early next year.

Promoter announces date for 2008 Coachella Music and Arts Festival

Kakie Urch • The Desert Sun • November 9, 2007


The 2008 Coachella Music and Arts Festival will be held April 25-27, the festival's promoter has announced.

Billboard, the music trade industry magazine, is reporting that Goldenvoice, the Los Angeles-based promoter for the festival that has become California's signature music festival and an international destination for alternative music fans, announced the date Thursday.

The lineup for Coachella is yet to come, expected by early in 2008.

The two festivals put on by Goldenvoice at the Indio Empire Polo Fields draw hundreds of thousands of fans to the Coachella Valley in late April and early May. Coachella features rock, rap, alternative music and performance, while Stagecoach highlights the nation's best in country and bluegrass.
