Coachella 2012 To Span Two Weekends

The Californian festival will effectively double in size.

Coachella have revealed plans to effectively double their capacity, by repeating the festival across two consecutive weekends.

The 2012 event will take place from 13th - 15th April, and 20th - 22nd April.

In a post made on their official website, festival organisers made this statement:

‘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.’

Tickets for the Californian event will go on sale at 10am PST this Friday 3rd June for one week only. The advance sale event will be the only opportunity for attendees to take advantage of the Coachella payment plan.
