    Coachella has always been the last weekend of April, so I don't see why they would change that for next year.

    Oh right... but with Stagecoach and all, I am betting they are trying to keep Coachella in April and Stagecoach in May.

    but it's never been as early as april 24....also, 2005 was april 30 and may 1, so i'm not sure that coachella being in april is all that important...

    the only reason i ask is b/c i want to rent a house already....to make sure we get something in la quinta, close to the fest.

    perhaps GV themselves don't even know when the dates will be. I guess they have to work dates according to availability of some main acts first, city permits, etc, etc, before. but who knows really.

    I just hope it'll be april 24-26. I'm pretty sure may 1-3 will conflict with school finals.

    Well nothing's probably ever really set in stone, but Coachella has always been held the weekend before finals here at MSU. At least since 2004, anyway. Sounds plausible enough to assume May 1-3 will be the 2009 dates since finals will be May 4-8.

    I really hope it is not May 1 -3 because the first week of the month is always the hardest to get off at my work.

    i sincerely do hope that they stretch it a little bit, similar to Outside Lands, but with a coachee twist:

    open camping on Wednesday
    Festival has a late start on Thursday Night, (5pm gates open, no huge headliners, but some great acts with longer set times), Then normal times on Fri/Sat/Sun...

    4 days would be great actually..keep the same amount of artist (125) and spread them out more and give them longer sets....I just don't know if I'd have the energy...

    I kinda hope this year is an actual precedent for future Coachellas, in terms of the longer set times for the headliners, and not just an exception for a couple of established artists. You get more bang for your buck if the headliners are doing a full, rather than abridged, set. Slightly longer set times for worthy sub headliners would be great too. Some bands out there have very large bodies of work.
    Upcoming: 04/11/14-04/13/14 - Coachella Weekend One; 04/18/14-04/20/14 - Coachella Weekend Two; 08/19/14 - NIN/Soundgarden (Isleta Amphitheater - Albuquerque, NM)

    at lmu it was always the weekend before finals, as many people here have said... except in 2003 it was two weekends before finals. (i.e. there was one week of classes between). so that pattern isn't quite consistent.
