    Default Dates for next year - 2012

    I know it is way to early, but what are everyone's predictions for 2012 Coachella dates? If I were a betting man I would say April 20 - 22.

    When do they normally announce the dates? Is it as late as December?

    When checking on hotel rates I do find it interesting that the 13-15 is way more expensive...

    My thinking was Coachella has been the third week of April since 2009.

    13-15 ftw, probably will be cooler. I think having coachella on 4/20 in the eyes of the promoter is destined for nonsense/chaos. There is 420 enough at coachella it doesn't need to be on the date, when people would presumably act retarded. This isn't smokeout-chella.

    doesn't matter when coachella is, it always seems to be hot those 3 days.

    unlike captain buzzkill over here, i think it would be superfun to have coachella on 4/20, bring on the wailers or cheech and chong just for kicks, IT IS ALWAYS SMOKEOUT-CHELLA !

    I'd guess 4/20-4/22. '09, '10, and '11 were all the third weekend in April (4/20-22). Before that, it was on the fourth weekend. So yes, it's trending earlier, but the 13th would be quite early.

    Coachella earlier in April is perfect. Not too hot, not too cold.

    Yeah, but that week before every Coachella is always a rainy week.

    Fourtwenty fourtwenty fourtwenty fourtwenty! Not that I think it will be that weekend, it just should be. I was already stoneystoned this year, 4/20 at Coachella would pose quite the exciting challenge (how high can we get?!). PLEASE bring on Fourtwentychella. Literally cannot think of a better place to be and enjoy.

    What's with the pot hatred? I've never seen anyone be violent or do crazy things while high on weed. Would probably be the chillest day everrrr.

    There we go. Just fucking around, the earlier date would be better imo, I dont understand the allure of having it on 4/20, everyone and their baby sister is already high as a kite to this festival, the 4/20 would just be redundant, better temperature over a silly holiday.

    You don't need to call me a buzzkill, I love partying just as much as you do I can assure you. I just don't think this is necessary. I don't need to be hearing "HAPPY 420!!" all day . I just think it would take away from the real point of the festival, music, not smoking as much pot as possible. Although this does happen. Imagine it like a burger meal, the fries shouldn't overshadow the burger.

    Keep in mind they may be doing a trio of 3 day festivals with the same setup. So 4/20 may be better used with hippy or metal fest.

    When does Polo season end since GV needs 2 weeks after that to set everything up?

    You weren't the only one to get a bong in. And 4/20 the Monday of Coachella (last year?) was pretty sweet. I agree that it'd hurt at Coachella on an actual fest day. Every inch of shade would be filled with people who smoked too much. My week of sobriety before Coachella this year left me napping 12-2pm on Saturday this year. I wasn't happy with that stoner nap. I wasted precious Coachella exploration time.

    Easter is April 8th in 2012, and I believe that plays a big factor in the decision. It is probably why they had the weekend free for the Big 4 this year, with Easter falling between Coachella and Stagecoach.

    By that logic, Coachella could happen April 13-15th and Stagecoach would happen the next weekend, for all those cowboy stoners. The festival has been the 3rd weekend of April the past few years, but the way the calendar falls makes this a close call.

    Another factor has got to be the heat. Having the festival later in April means they are going to have more people dehydrated and suffering in the heat. They stop running the horses on the Polo grounds in late March for this reason.

    A potential bug in that is now Goldenvoice has had a taste of 3 consecutive weekends of revenue, will they push to make a Metalfest or some other genre festival a regular occurrence. If they can book something large enough again, I would expect them to try. Thankfully we know Coachella will likely always be first due to the complex setup.

    Historical Data

    Easter / Coachella / Stagecoach
    2001 April 15 / April 28 / NA
    2002 March 31 / April 27-28 / NA
    2003 April 20 / April 26-27 / NA
    2004 April 11 / May 1-2 / NA
    2005 March 27 / April 30-May 1 / NA
    2006 April 16 / April 29-30 / NA
    2007 April 8 / April 27-29 / May 5-6
    2008 March 23 / April 25-27 / May 2-4
    2009 April 12 / April 17-19 / April 25-26
    2010 April 4th / April 16–18 / April 24-25
    2011 April 24th / April 15-17 / April 30-May 1 (Big4 April 23)
    2012 April 8th / ??? / ???

    OK. I've put too much thought into this and have just confused myself more.
