Coachella announce 2013 dates

After the roaring success of this year’s proceedings, universal object of aspiration Coachella has confirmed its return for 2013. It’s not like there was ever any doubt that the juggernaut would be back next year, but there was a fair bit of speculation as to how many weekends the festival would run for.

Some had suggested that the promoters could easily have sold out a third or even fourth consecutive weekend of festival, and while that may well be true, Coachella will be sticking to two weekends next time around. Weekend 1 will be held April 12-14 and Weekend 2 follows on April 19-21. Those wishing to take advantage of the ticket payment plan will have the opportunity to purchase advance tickets, which are on sale from May 17 until May 24 through the Coachella website. Though of course, we don’t yet know the line-up for 2013.

Now that the dates are confirmed, the question remains: how are they going to top that hologram?
