Coachella announces 2014 dates, on-sale info

Coachella fans may still have grass in their hair from this year’s edition, but the festival is already revving up for 2014.

Promoter Goldenvoice announced Monday morning that next year’s festival is scheduled for April 11-13 and April 18-20. The first round of advance ticket sales is to begin Friday at 10 a.m. at

For those already budgeting, this round of ticket sales is the only one for which fans can use Coachella’s installment payment plan.

Coachella 2014 will be the first edition under Goldenvoice’s new deal with the city of Indio, with the festival expected to expand to nearly 100,000 fans per day. The country music festival Stagecoach is expected to expand to 75,000 per day.

The arrangement locks in the festival at its current site until 2030, with a per-ticket fee of $5.01 going to Indio.

The deal also gives Goldenvoice the opportunity to host two fall festivals at the site, but no announcement has yet been made about plans to do so.
