Coachella festival set to expand

A brand country festival is coming too

The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival is set to expand to a three–day event in 2007.

It will run between April 27 – 29 at the Empire Polo Field in California, reports Billboard.

The following weekend (May 5–6), promoters of Coachella will launch an unnamed country music festival which will feature legends Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris amongst others.

The new event will include four performance stages – the main one, an ‘outlaw’ one, a bluegrass one and a storytelling area.

The line up for the main Coachella festival is set to be announced in late January and early February.
