Coachella has been teasing us with a big “announcement” since last week, but my five year old nephew could have guessed that the news would be the dates for 2013. The major goodie is that Coachella will once again go two weekends. Looks like their gamble of going double paid off in a big way.

Weekend One: April 12-14, 2013
Weekend Two: April 19-21, 2013

Advance tickets go on sale on Thursday, May 17th 10:00am PDT. And this year, ticket prices will reflect all fees. This year, general admission will start at $349 with camping passes at $85.

From the website:

We are excited to announce Coachella 2013 will again be held over two consecutive weekends. Advance passes go on sale beginning this Thursday, May 17th, 2012 10:00 am PDT through the following Thursday, May 24th, 2012 10:00 pm PDT. This advance sale will be the only opportunity to take advantage of the Coachella Purchase Plan. New for 2013, the price you see is what you pay – prices reflect all fees included. The general on sale will happen early next year

Will you be a part of the pre-sale? Will other festivals follow the “double weekend” model? Will Coachella 2013 be nothing but holographic performances? Let us know below.
