Coachella Sells Out

Published: 2004-04-21
The first day of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has sold out. The two day festival is scheduled for May 1st and 2nd, and is held in Indio, California. Coachella is one of the major North American festivals that takes place throughout the year.

The line-up for the sold out date included a performance by the Pixies, who have recently reunited and are currently touring around the continent on a series of warm-up dates. It is most likely the appearance of the Pixies that caused the date to sell out.

Also featured on Saturday is: Radiohead, Kraftwerk, The Rapture, The Sounds, and Stellastarr*, in addition to many other bands. Canadian group the Stills will also be playing the first date of Coachella.

Some of the bands lined up for Sunday, the second and final day of the Coachella festival are: The Cure, The Flaming Lips, Le Tigre, The Cooper Temple Clause and !!!. Another Canadian group scheduled to play on the second date of the festival is Toronto band Broken Social Scene.

In addition to the musical component of the festival, Coachella also hosts a film festival and art shows.
