On Your Mark, Get Set, Coachella 2014
HOLY SMOKES, you guys. The dates have already been announced for Coachella 2014 and ticket sales begin tomorrow! They've timed it perfectly; now is the perfect time to make California desert plans when much of the country is snowed in or blown about by icy winds.
The dates you need to set aside in your iCal are: April 11-13 and April 18-20.
As with Coachella 2013 and 2012, 2014's version will be split into two identical weekends of performances from musicians old and new (Outkast is reuniting!), with a hologram or two thrown in for max viral appeal. The only thing that won't be identical are the attendees, since you have the option of hitting up the first weekend and being surprised, or hitting up the second and being well prepared. Either way, we recommend you start phoning your choice Palm Springs hotel now to inquire about early booking deals.
Lest you forget, Coachella is an event that's ticketed in advance. The first tickets will go up for sale online through the official Coachella website TOMORROW. Passes go on sale beginning this Friday, January 10, at 10am PST. Prices begin at $375 for general admission on the second weekend, or go big with a 4-person "luxury" tent and 4 VIP passes for $4700.
Count your pennies, kids, and see you there?
