Coachella Announces 2015 Dates
Coachella fans can begin planning for the annual music festival now. The fest has announced dates and pre-order sales for next year.
Festival goers haven’t even had enough time to recover, or have all the dust fully washed out of their hair, from this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival. And now promoter Goldenvoice announced that 2015's fest will take place on April 10-12 and April 17-19 in Indio, Calif.
Pre-order sales for a limited number of passes will go on sale this Friday, May 16, at 10AM. The early sale is the only chance for fans to use the monthly payment plan for Coachella passes. General admission passes are priced at $375; general admission with a shuttle pass is $435; while VIP will cost $799. Both car camping and tent camping are $85 per spot, with companion camping parking is $30. If you're willing to splurge, the luxury camping packages ranges from $2,350 to $7,000. Whew!
The festival began in 1993, where Pearl Jam hosted as an alternative to Ticketmaster, which the group was boycotting at the time. In 1999, Beck, Tool, the Chemical Brothers and others helped launch Coachella as a major musical event. Since then, it has expanded to a two-weekend, six-day festival where music fans, fashionistas and celebrities flock together in the desert.
No word on who will perform at next year’s fest, but more than likely will the lineup will be announced sometime in January. This past year had memorial performances by Arcade Fire, Haim, and the return of Outkast. For more information on the fest, visit here.
