The Rolling Stones have accidently leaked news of possible plans to play next year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.

Earlier today the rock legends' mobile app listed a new live date on April 12, 2013 in Indio at Coachella 2013.

Rolling Stone reports that the information was quickly taken down, but not before fans were able to share screengrabs, listing news of the show.

The Rolling Stones last festival performance was in 2007 at the Isle of Wight Festival.

Next year's Coachella Festival will take place over two weekends, from April 12-14 and April 19-21.

Coachella festival will remain in its current location and continue in 2014, after a row over tax was settled earlier this year.

The organisers of the California festival, which hosted sets from the likes of Radiohead, Dr Dre, The Black Keys, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Arctic Monkeys and a whole host of others this year, had threatened to move the event from its current home of the Empire Polo Club and miss out 2014 after councillor Sam Torres had said he would propose a new tax on events with capacities of over 2,500.

According to Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett, whose company run the festival, the tax would raise ticket prices by $36 (£23) each and would mean the company would have to move the festival.

However, Torres backed down, saying in a press release: "I don't take a threat from Paul Tollett lightly. I cannot in good conscience allow this to happen no matter how dire the city's circumstance. My sincere hope is that we can now move past this episode and I personally look forward to working to enhance relationships."
