    Default 2016 dates ?

    Any one willing to guess the 2016 dates for Coachella ? I would like April 8-10 and 15-17 for Weekend 1 and Weekend 2, respectively, but I suspect that it will be April 15-17 for Weekend 1, 22-24 for Weekend 2.

    I think your first guess is way more likely, it's almost always the 2nd and 3rd weekends in April now so that would make sense. It might get too hot if they move it any later..

    One of the hotels in Palm Springs - formerly the Viceroy - has April 8-10 and 15-17 blocked off as special/unbookable weekends, at least when i checked last week. Could be a coincidence, or they could know already.

    I wish Coachella would be 15-17 for Weekend 1, mainly because I haven't been able to enjoy a Coachella RSD since 2011.

    I too miss the Coachella RSD - it was nice to pick up some of the records on Friday. That being said, I have a hotel reservation for April 8-10, so the earlier date would be more helpful if I fail to score a camping pass.

    I'm hoping for Weekend 2 to be April 15-17. Would love to go then.

    Hotel blackout dates are primarily for 4/15- 18. I assume Valley Music Travel secures their room block over a year in advance, but it could also be that hotels are opting to block the weekend they /know/ will be a Coachella weekend (whether it's 1 or 2 ytbd). I'm still tempted to book a (value priced!) room for 8-11 on the very remote chance the dates have not been disclosed to the hotels.

    Definitely 8-10 and 15-17. Otherwise they'd have Stagecoach run into May and I doubt they want that.

    Take this for what it's worth...the city of La Quinta has the 2016 dates of Coachella W1 as Apr. 8-10, Coachella W2 as Apr. 15-17, and Stagecoach as Apr. 22-24 on its tourism website:

    http://www.playinlaquinta.com/Signature-Events
    Coachella '02, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12 W1, '13 W1&2, '14 W1, '15 W1&2, '16 W1

    White Party in Palm Springs is earlier than usual - April 8-11, 2016
    http://www.jeffreysanker.com/press

    The White Party attracts over 20,000 gay men. So housing will be very hard to find that weekend.

    Easter is early, too - March 27, 2016 - so no Easterchella

    Looks like I fucked up by booking a place for Weekend 2.

    Coachella has been as late into Spring as May 1-2 before.

    The hotels don't really know, they are just shooting in the dark. I speak from experience.

    Suspicion confirmed.

    I guess the reason the White Party is early is to accommodate Coachella for the following 2 weekends.

    That puts Tachevah the Block Party on 4/20.
