Still coming down from the excitement of this year’s festivities, Coachella’s organizers begin announcements about next year’s prime desert music festival.

Despite grumblings from attendees regarding this year’s duel weekend event, organizers have announced today that Coachella will again run two consecutive weekends next year – April 12-14 and April 19-21, 2013.

To guarantee a festival pass and not come up short when they go on sale in early 2013, this Thursday, May 17 at 10am Pacific advance passes will go on sale. Buy it now and don’t worry later when they again sell out in minutes.
