The Coachella Music Festival has announced its exciting lineup for 2012! Hip hop fans will go crazy over the reunion of legends Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg and will be salivating in anticipation of what the Doctor has in store for them. Alternatively, indie fans will rejoice to headliners Radiohead or the bluesy The Black Keys. Other massive indie names include Pulp, Bon Iver, Florence and the Machine and the Arctic Monkeys.
The Coachella Festival is held in the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley. It has had a great history, from its opening in 1999 when such bands as Rage Against the Machine and The Chemical Brothers played. The desert setting gives festival goers a hot setting in which to unwind and enjoy the very best music around.
For the 2012 version, big names like Dr Dre or Radiohead will no doubt bring the house down and according to the L.A. Times fans can expect to pay from $285 for a three-day weekend pass for either April 13-15 or April 20-22. If you like the star treatment, why not treat yourself to a VIP pass?
These tickets are extremely limited, though, so make sure you get yours this Friday 10am PST on the Coachella Music Festival official site. And don’t be late because the demand is massive!
