Coachella expands to two weekends

Having sold out in just six days this year, the 2012 Coachella Festival is to expand to a second weekend in the same venue, with the same line-up. The festival will now take place on April 13th-15th and April 20th-22nd. Commenting on the decision, promoters Golden Voice said that they were “truly surprised by the overwhelming response and remain honored by your passion and enthusiasm. We also know some of you purchased through nonlegitimate 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 2012 event go on sale this Friday for a limited period.
