Great news: According to the Orange County Register and Hollywood Reporter, you will be able to double your pleasure and get two doses of Coachella next year! The hugely successful festival’s management, Goldenvoice, told people on their mailing lists to expect a big announcement today. In their press release, they wrote
“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.”
They will now sell 150,000 tickets across two weekends for 2012 – which are still expected to sell out. The festival will take place on the weekend of April 13-15 and April 20-22 next year. Weekend passes for next year’s event are set to go on sale almost immediately this Friday at 10am PST until Friday, June 10th at 10pm PST. The three-day passes will cost $269 (with some additional fees), but can also be bought on the 8-installment layaway plan.
Buy your tickets soon! Next year is just around the corner.
