They did it nice so they'll do it twice. That's right: This year's Coachella Music Festival will kick off on Friday the 13th of April and run through the weekend, then do it all over again April 20-22. That'll give the recycle guy time to convert the mound of plastic water bottles the size of Utah from Coachella I into reservations to Tahiti.
So, same menu, same venue, the Empire Polo Club in Indio, with the same bands repeating. Thousands of people have paid millions of dollars to see hundreds of bands play out in the desert in the spring, before the onset of that long, hot summer when everyone would die of heatstroke. Both Coachellas sold out quickly, so for those who didn't buy tickets in a timely manner, it's on to the ticket scalpers or whatever polite word they call themselves these days.
