Get ready music fans: Passes for this year’s Coachella will go on sale tomorrow, Friday January 13 at 10 a.m. PST.
According to the festival’s website, “We recommend you visit the festival pages for complete details. Please click one of the buttons below to set up your purchasing account ahead of time to help expedite your order process. You will want to set up your account by Thursday, January 12th as you will not be able to enter the purchasing site until the on sale begins Friday morning. Remember, you have the option of Weekend 1 or Weekend 2. Please be sure you are viewing information for the weekend you are interested in purchasing.”
There are numerous types of passes available for purchase, including general admission three-day passes, camping passes, VIP pass and some really expensive passes that involve a fancy pre-erected tent and food. A general admission pass for one weekend will set you back $285 plus shipping and service charges. Because some fans took advantage of a pre-order situation last year, there are limited amounts of passes for the first weekend.
You can check out the types of passes that will be offered and set up your account here. You can also buy tickets by calling 1-888-512-SHOW. All passes will be mailed out by the festival in March.
Supposedly passes will be easier to come by this year than last year, which sold out almost instantly. Two weekends means double the amount of available tickets– at least in theory. Passes will also be limited by household and you can’t switch weekends once you score one. So good luck and make sure you tell everyone at work not to bother you until you get that confirmation that your ticket was purchased.

That moment you’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. All your questions answered, all the fake posters unconfirmed, all the rumors laid to rest. That’s right, Coachella has announced its lineup for 2012.
This year The Black Keys, Radiohead and Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg will headline the festival, taking the top spot on each weekend. Other artists include Florence and the Machine, Bon Iver, Girl Talk, David Guetta, the newly reformed At The Drive-In, The Shins, Pulp, Refused and Arctic Monkeys. The festival will take place over two weekends this year, April 13-15 and April 20-22, with each lineup the same for each weekend. Will some hipsters stay and watch the whole thing twice? Yes, probably.
The’s no word on when tickets for the festival, which sold out in record time last year, will be on sale, but stay ready. Those will be available here.
What do you think about this year’s lineup? Does it meet all your hopes and dreams, or leave you wondering why those No Doubt and Black Sabbath rumors didn’t come to fruition?

After over a decade, seminal post-punk band At The Drive-In have announced their reunion. And just in time for Coachella.
The group tweeted today, “ATTENTION ! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL.” Which basically confirms rumors that the group, composed of Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Jim Ward, Omar Rodríguez-López, Paul Hinojos, and Tony Hajjar, would be reforming to play Coachella this year. Although the festival has not yet announced its lineup (it will supposedly do so this week), we think it’s pretty clear what’s happening here.
At The Drive-In broke up in 2001 after releasing three albums during their nine year existence from 1993 to 2001. The group’s last album was 2000’s Relationship Of Command. The band played their final show on February 21st, 2001 and announced a permanent hiatus shortly after. Two bands formed from the ashes– The Mars Volta and Sparta.
It’s unclear if this reunion will involve new music as well as shows. Now let’s all stay tuned for the inevitable “At The Drive-In will be playing Coachella 2012″ announcement.
