View Full Version : is this the last coachellafest?

i live in the coachella valley and heard they sold the polo fields in indio... supposedly the new owners plan to develope the land and they are just going to meet the obligations of a pre-existing agreement w/goldenvoice and then that's it for coachellafest... so if this is to be believed this year or next year is supposed to be it... there is no other venue in the coachella valley or ANYWHERE near it that i can think of that could possibly accomodate this type of festival; only stadiums or arenas and that would go against the whole idea of coachella... anyone else heard anything like this? i e-mailed goldenvoice.com today and am anxiously awaiting a response....

Uh, the festival just signed a contract with the owners of the Polo Field/ the city of Indio for the next few years, so I'm going to have to say this isn't true.

Pretty much a standard rumour for all festivals and other yearly events.

they have at least five more years locked in there.
People are happy with Coachella on both sides, it's not going anywhere.
