Coachella 2012 is officially going to span two weekend (Weekend 1 – April 13-15, 2012 | Weekend 2 – April 20-22, 2012). Both will feature the exact same lineup. The rumors mills were spinning for a while, as everyone knew the team behind the famed festival was about to drop a bomb. It caught most a little off guard, as no one is sure what to make of this. Will this make the festival better? Will this ruin the festival, and make it a little less special? Only time will tell I guess.
The official release stated: We’re excited to announce Coachella 2012 will be held over TWO WEEKENDS.
In an effort to try and accommodate everyone who wants to experience the festival, COACHELLA 2012 will be two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends. We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people.
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.
Passes go on sale beginning this Friday, June 3rd, 2011, at 10am PST until the following Friday June 10th, 2011, at 10pm PST. This advance sale will be the only opportunity to take advantage of the Coachella Payment Plan. Passes will be available through a payment plan of 10% down and 8 equal monthly payments OR by payment in full. The price of three-day passes remains at $269 plus fees for the sixth consecutive year.
