Coachella to expand 2012 festival to two weekends

Arcade Fire were just one of the headliners at Coachella 2011
In an effort to help prevent quick sell-outs like with the 2011 festival, Coachella has recently announced that in 2012 the festival will be expanding to two weekends.  That's right, Coachella is going to take the same lineup and reproduce it two weekends in a row.  With massive headliners like The Strokes, Arcade Fire and Kanye West playing in 2011 one can only imagine what kind of names the festival is going to be drawing in 2012 now that they've opened up another entire weekend of music.

Tickets for the 2012 festival will go on sale in advance on Friday, June 3 and the sale will last until Friday, June 10.  This advance sale is the only opportunity to take advantage of Coachella's payment plan, so if you can't fork out $269 (plus fees) in one lump sum, this may be your chance to jump all over an early purchase.  Coachella's payment plan offers the option of putting 10% down and then making 8 equal monthly payments, or you can pay for the tickets in full.

The 2012 festival dates have already been announced as well with Week 1 taking place from April 13-15 and week two being held from April 20-22 (cue 4/20 joke here).  Hopefully this second weekend proves to be a legitimate alternative to these quick sell-outs which lead to massive hiking in the ticket prices due to scalpers.    For more information you can check out Coachella's website right here.
