Year and year, the Coachella Music Festival sells out, and usually in record time. This led organizers to expand to a two-weekend format in 2012, and yet tickets are still hard to come by. Now, the Desert Sun reports that an autumn music festival “is imminent.”
Back in 2013, Coachella producers Goldenvoice signed an agreement with Indio, California to keep the festival in the city through 2030. The agreement also allows Goldenvoice to stage up to five events over the course of the year. As Goldenvoice already puts on two weekends of Coachella and the country-themed Stagecoach Music Festival, that leaves room for two potential fall events.
According to Indio Mayor Glenn Miller, the city has been working with Goldenvoice on a fall festival. “Significant progress” has been made as of late, and Mayor Miller says he believes a new event is “imminent.”
Another festival would bring Indio an additional $1.4 million in revenue and also solidify its reputation as the “City of Festivals,” Mayor Miller explained.
The spring edition of Coachella, set for April 15th – 17th and 22nd – 24th, boasts a lineup featuring reunited bands Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem, Underworld, Sia, Ice Cube, Disclosure, ASAP Rocky, and many more.
