Pssssssst… pass it on. (Taken with instagram)
My friends think I’m crazy, but I honestly believe that it’s the start of the Payment Plan. They did it for that week in June last year, and since this year was such a success sales-wise—practically selling out during the pre-sale, and taking less than an hour to fully sell-out during the actual on-sale months later—I figure they’re doing it earlier this year. Hell, I think they may be banking on it selling out this year via the Payment Plan alone.
Other possibilities being thrown around: Another week? I doubt that. I mean, that would just be absurd. Three weekends of Coachella and one of Stagecoach? No, that’s just pushing it. And, in a way, devaluing the experience of it. The announcement of next years Coachella dates? Ehh, I doubt it. They wouldn’t make a big, albeit cryptic, stink about it for this. The dates you can figure out on your own just by looking at the calendar; first weekend 12, 13, and 14. Second weekend, a week later, would be 19, 20, and 21.
This, of course, is all speculation on my part. I guess we’ll have to wait until Monday for something more concrete.
