    Default Coachella is 2 Weekends! April 13 - 15 and April 20 - 22 2012

    We're excited to announce Coachella 2012 will be held over TWO WEEKENDS.

    In an effort to try and accommodate everyone who wants to experience the festival, COACHELLA 2012 will be two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends. We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people.

    We know many of you were unable to attend this year's festival because passes sold out much sooner than anticipated. We were truly surprised by the overwhelming response and remain honored by your passion and enthusiasm. We also know some of you purchased through non legitimate sources and were inconvenienced, gouged or totally scammed. We hope that these changes will give everyone the opportunity to purchase directly from Coachella.com.

    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.

    Coachella Weekend 1 - April 13-15, 2012 | Coachella Weekend 2 - April 20-22, 2012

    What about Sean Kingston and Bowie?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Can the crowd be separated? One weekend solely for bro's and hipsters and tweens.

    We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people.
    This is such bullshit and no way both weekend's lineups are the same. You know there will be some bands that will be able to do one weekend and not the other and we'll have to choose one or the other.

    Godfuckingdammit.

    This is really weird. i might miss my first Coachella (2nd weekend) due to a cousin's wedding. If it was the only Coachella happening, i could get out of the wedding, but now that it's 2 identical Coachellas, gonna be harder to get out of it.

    This all sounds like a logistical nightmare.

    But I think it's pretty cool.

    Does anyone else have doubts about the exact same lineup being replicated over both weekends?

    yea, I think many will.

    There is no way they'll get headliners to hit back to back weekends.

    Headliners I think is definitely possible.

    It's the myriad of undercard acts that I have my doubts on. Many of those acts schedule their tours around Coachella (or vice versa). To expect all those bands to either a) stay in the area or b) come back a week later is kind of unrealistic.

    At least with the headliners there's a substantial amount of cash incentive for them to do both.

    They might, but an headline act is not going to sit for a week and do nothing. Headliners will be heading to Phoenix, SF, Vegas etc for several dates in between.

    Yeah, because it's not like they'd have already sounded out bands about this. In fact, Paul T only had the idea at 9.55am.

    True...very true...

    I'm sure they had many hours planning and discussing the issues. I had 2 minutes and that was my first question....I'm sure they discussed it as well.

    I expected to see a payment plan...don't think anyone saw the festival now expanded.

    Precisely. I mean, we're talking about a seven day spread here. They can cruise over to Vegas, Phoenix, and San Diego, and be back in Indio in a week.

    Also, does anyone else think (hope) that they'll sell less tickets over both weekends? (Like 60k per weekend instead of 70k per weekend)?
