More important than the hype, though, is what to know if you're planning on trekking to Indio come spring. A three-day festival pass will run you $269, and you can purchase it via a layaway plan through February 15, 2010. There is an option of putting 50% down, then paying the remaining 50% the first week of March, or 10% down and making two equal payments thereafter.
Campers take note: in 2010, 10x30 camping spots (as opposed to a per-person cost) are available for $55, and RV camp spots for $250. Car camping is a new, more affordable addition to the 2010 fest. Per the official website:
If you’ve camped with us at Coachella before, you’re probably used to parking and lugging your gear. Now you can park your car right next to your tent. Also, for the first time all festival attendees will be able to go in & out of the concert venue during the show for the entire weekend!
Car camping spots are 10’x30’. Your car and as many people or tents you can cram into that spot (as long as it’s not against the rules) is fine with us.
More information on tickets and camping can be found on their website, or you can tweet questions to the very helpful folks at Coachella (@coachella), who are answering queries with lightning speed. As always, we'll have the latest news as it breaks, but feel free to start crossing your fingers for an Arcade Fire headlining gig now.
