With the 11th Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival now just weeks away, festival organizers have just confirmed that all car and tent camping for this year are sold-out. Music fans planning a trip to the annual Coachella festival--set for Friday, April 16, Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18 at the beautiful Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA--should work on firming up plans for alternate lodging now. In addition, with this year’s newly implemented in-and-out privileges for all attendees, entry into the festival site should be simplified through this process, allowing festival goers to visit the newly expanded campgrounds throughout the day.
This year’s Coachella line-up will feature a mix of more than 130 artists ranging from Jay-Z, Muse, Gorillaz, Pavement, Thom Yorke’s Atoms for Peace, Vampire Weekend, Them Crooked Vultures, LCD Soundsystem, Phoenix, Tiësto, Faith No More, Deadmau5, David Guetta, MGMT and Public Image Limited, among others.
For those looking for help with local hotel shuttle transportation, Coachella has teamed with Valley Music Travel to provide local hotel shuttle transportation to and from the polo field. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit www.valleymusictravel.com/coachella.php.
