Double Time

If you feel the UK festival roster is a little stale for your musical needs, then you could do worse than nipping over the pond to the US’s premier Coachella Festival.

Set in the California desert, which always means guaranteed sunshine, the Coachella Festival is also a hotspot for the finest bands around today. This year’s festie was once again sold out thanks to the likes Arcade Fire, Kings Of Leon and Kanye West strutting their stuff on stage, so to increase people’s chances of getting a ticket for next year, organisers have decided to expand the festival.

From 2012 the festival will run over TWO weekends, the statement on their website says; ‘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.’

Coachella 2012 will be April 13-15 and April 20-22. Acts will be named sometime next year.
