Coachella Festival sells out

Tickets disappear at record pace

Coachella Festival sells out
Tickets to the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival have sold out in record time, more than two months in advance of the Festival dates, it was announced today.

The event, which takes place April 27-29 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California, features headliners including Bjork, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the newly reunited Rage Against The Machine, as previously announced. Arcade Fire, Jesus and Mary Chain, Arctic Monkeys and Interpol are also on the bill.

Festival booker Paul Tollett of Goldenvoice cleared up rumours that the event would be changing its desert location due to real estate development on its current site.

"There are rumours about that whole area being developed for houses and golf courses," he told Billboard. "We said we'd make this commitment to them, but please don't make houses here, and it worked."
