Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is now two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends. Both will be two identical festival weekends. That means same line-up, same art, same place, different festival goers.
The dates for 2017 are confirmed as Friday 14th to Sunday 16th April for weekend one, and again a week later.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (aka Coachella) the three-day annual music and arts festival is held at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California, in the Inland Empire's Coachella Valley. The event features a wide choice of genres of music including alternative rock, hip hop, and electronic music as well as large scale sculptural art.
