I saw that the FAQ on the Coachella homepage states:
What do VIP passes get you?
There are a limited number of VIP passes for purchase. A VIP festival pass includes general admission to the festival plus access to the VIP area(s). The main VIP area is located immediately adjacent to the main stage and consists of shaded areas, picnic tables, couches, extra restrooms, food & beverage vendors and a full cash bar. The second VIP area is located directly next to the Sahara tent in the beautiful Rose Garden complete with full cash bar, spectacular views and thousands of roses.
Does this mean that there will be no area in the front of any of the stages for VIP in 2012?
