set times in general get longer as the day goes on, and most headliners get at least an hour

75-90 minutes

Sometimes more.

depends. Coachella HAS a cerfew inforced by the city. In years past some bands have said F it and kept playing.
It's my understanding ...living in Indio and the mayor is a freind of our family...that the agreement with GV and the city is a hard agreement if GV wishes to continue working with the city.
I'm not positive, but I believe the stop time is 1am.
GV will pull the cord at that time...playing or not due to city regulation and houses that are nearby that may not want to hear the noise beyond that time.

look at the schedule when it comes out and you'll see the exact times.

Would the time sets have been shorter or longer in 2007?

They've all been around 90min. I believe that in years past they stated the festival ended at midnight, but allowed bands to play up to 1 as 1 was the hard shut off. I'm not positive, but in my past 6 years of going that's what I recall.

It was a bit hazy at the end of each day...so my recall isn't court worthy.
