    Default Coachella to be 3 weekends in 2013

    I heard they might even add a forth weekend since all the tickets sold out in only 3 hours this year.

    I think that would be a bit of a stretch booking-wise. Not to mention, the existence of Stagecoach.

    What's the place hold?

    In theory, they could do like Reading/Leads and have the same lineup play different days on the same weekend.

    Great Park is a bunch of runways. That would suck. Anyone go to the warped tour back in the day in Anaheim? it was in the parking lot of honda center and SUCKED. The heat off the concrete was EVIL.

    Coachella founder to produce Great Park music festivals
    By BRIAN MARTINEZ
    THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

    IRVINE – Orange County Great Park directors chose Goldenvoice LLC – founder of Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival – to be the park’s exclusive producer and promoter of large-scale and multiday music events.

    The five other bidders for the five-year agreement included Live Nation, which is the promoter for Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, and C3 Presents, which handles Lollapalooza. The winner was determined by a point-system ranking.

    Live Nation wanted exclusive rights for all events with a paid attendance over 2,500. Goldenvoice set that threshold at 12,500 people and demonstrated more experience with outdoor events and multiday festivals, Great Park officials said.

    Although the final agreement has yet to be finalized, the plan is that Goldenvoice will pay the Great Park a flat fee of $750,000 per year as well as $3 per person for paid attendance between 150,000 and 299,000 per year and $5 per person for paid attendance between 300,000 and 500,000 per year.

    Goldenvoice has agreed to produce one to five events per year and to contribute toward mutually beneficial improvements, such as landscaping, according to the Great Park report.

    I heard that GV actually did purchase the Polo fields recently. Anyone know if there is truth to that?

    They bought 280 acres of land that includes Eldorado Polo Club, but they did not purchase the Empire Polo Club.

    It would NOT be Coachella if not in the Coachella Valley. Moving a festival to Orange County would be lame, the land of Republicans and crappy mini malls, no thanks. GV already had a festival in th OC in the 1990s called This Aeint No Picnic. Keep it at the Empire Polo Grounds, even if for an expanded 3 weekends.

    They would have to change the name if the venue was somewhere else. LAME!

    WHAT IF

    2013 expanded to three installments, but stuck the extra one during the week between the two weekends? Like:

    Coachella A is Thursday - Saturday,
    Coachella B is Monday - Wednesday, and
    Coachella C is Friday - Sunday?

    Bands would still have four days between performances if they wanted to tour nearby, but it wouldn't be that difficult for GV to ask them to stick around eight days for three performances. And by optimizing the five days between the festivals where the infrastructure is just sitting around, GV could save a lot of money.

    There are probably a million things wrong with this idea that all of you will scream at me for, but after a three-hour sell-out, I can't see a way AEG won't force Goldenvoice to keep adding to Coachella.
