If you haven’t heard of this art-and-music packed festival before, Coachella is a three-day festival in Indio, California that for the first time is being held over two weekends. These weekends have an identical lineup of bands, including well-known acts like The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Cat Power, Radiohead, Miike Snow, and Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg. The lineup was just released a few days ago, and the resulting mad rush to buy tickets left the festival sold out as of this afternoon.
Many fans of the festival have been wary of its decision to spread to two different weekends, voicing concerns that the festival is becoming “all about the money,” which adds up to well over $300. What do you think?
