As promised, Goldenvoice has finally shed some light on the cryptic tweet sent out Friday. The 2013 installment of the Indio-based Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will again take place over two weekends – April 12-14 and April 19-21 – and advance ticket sales begin Thursday, May 17th at 10am PDT. GA tickets will sell for $349, while a VIP ticket will set you back $799. However, you won’t get hit with supplemental service charges and various fees this year. The advance sale opportunity is scheduled to run for one week but we doubt the ticket allotment will last that long — general sale will happen early next year.
This announcement debunks all rumors floating around – third or fourth weekend, fourth day, etc – with the only major variation from last year’s format being the fully-loaded ticket price. Perhaps there are more announcements in tow for Goldenvoice, so stay tuned. Head over to the Coachella website for answers to frequently asked questions regarding next year’s festival.
