It has just been announced that Coachella 2012 will be held over two weekends.
The reason for this change is to make sure everyone who wants to attend the event will be able to. The festival will attempt to create identical weekends including the same linups, art, and location.
The people behind the festival have said:
”We know many of you were unable to attend this year’s festival because passes sold out much sooner than anticipated. We were truly surprised by the overwhelming response and remain honored by your passion and enthusiasm. We also know some of you purchased through non legitimate sources and were inconvenienced, gouged or totally scammed. We hope that these changes will give everyone the opportunity to purchase directly from Coachella.com.”
Advanced sale for next year’s event will begin this Friday, June 3rd at 10am and last until the following Friday, June 10 at 10 pm. Three day passes will again be $269 plus fees.
Coachella Weekend 1 will be April 13-15, 2012 and Weekend 2 will be April 20-22, 2012.
