Coachella heading east this year?

The Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival is heading for the east coast, it is being reported.

The festival is still scheduled to take place at it’s usual location of Indio in the Californian desert, but an additional festival is apparently in the works.

According to, it will take place in New York or New Jersey in August. The website quotes an unidentified source in the news piece.
