Coachella Expands to Two Identical Weekends?

Actually being able to go to the Coachella music festival in Indio has become a more difficult process each year, with tickets gone essentially once the lineup was announced last year. While the festival is generally worth attending regardless of who's headlining, it's generally nice to know what you're playing for. In order to make a second giant pile of money off California hipster types allow more people to attend, there will be two Coachellas this year:

We're excited to announce Coachella 2012 will be held over TWO WEEKENDS.

In an effort to try and accommodate everyone who wants to experience the festival, COACHELLA 2012 will be two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends. We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people.

We know many of you were unable to attend this year's festival because passes sold out much sooner than anticipated. We were truly surprised by the overwhelming response and remain honored by your passion and enthusiasm. We also know some of you purchased through non legitimate sources and were inconvenienced, gouged or totally scammed. We hope that these changes will give everyone the opportunity to purchase directly from Coachella.com.
