Music festival season has now officially kicked off with the announcement of the three-day lineup (to be performed in two successive weekends) at Coachella in 2012. Coachella tickets go on sale today, with two separate three-day passes, from April 13-15, 2012 and from April 20-22, 2012.
The first night of each weekend, the Black Keys are headlining with the Swedish House Mafia playing a close second as the indie dance music fans choice. Radiohead headlines Day Two, with Bon Iver playing for those aware of up-and-coming groups, the Shins appealing to those who were indie music fans at the turn of the century, and David Guetta appealing to hip hop dance fans across the world. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg will end the weekend along with Florence and the Machines. The farther you delve into the lineups the more it becomes clear that this art and music festival is as dedicated to appeasing hipsters from every decade.
This presale is going to sellout quickly, as it does every year. There are only 75,000 tickets made available per night, so there is more than enough demand for indie music fans throughout the country, despite the economic climate. Last year, Coachella ticket sales totaled $23 million and the year before they totaled $21.7 million.
For those fans who are not able to take advantage of the presale, there is the secondary ticket market. OnlineSeats has the very best prices on these music festival tickets, so if you are too late for the presale, take a look at our stock of tickets and enjoy the three-day event of a lifetime.
