Coachella Expands to Back-to-Back Weekends in 2012

If you were planning on going to Coachella next year and partying so hard that you forget most of the festival, we have good news. The festival — which has featured hip-hop headliners like Jay-Z in 2010 and Kanye West in 2011 — will now come in two supposedly identical installments, set for consecutive weekends in 2012.

Organizers have announced that the annual event will take place April 13-15 and April 20-22 in Indio, Calif., and the plan, for now, is to have the same lineup perform both weekends. There is no word yet if it will be just the same talent roster or the exact same order of sets.

While we obviously have no idea how this will all pan out, we can imagine that getting bands to agree to spend back-to-back weekends in the same place could be a huge problem. Then again, Coachella has been so successful that we could see it working out and maybe even setting a trend.

Either way, passes will go on sale Friday, June 3 at 10AM PT. The cost for a full-weekend ticket will be $269. Will you be going?
