Coachella ’07: Sold Out

With Rage, RHCP, and Bjork on board, the California festival cleans out its ticket stock super early.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, scheduled to go down April 27-29 at Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA, has officially sold out, Billboard.com reports. Capacity for the 2007 installment has been slightly decreased from last year’s 60,000-showgoers-per-day figure, and the festival’s booker, Paul Tollett, attributes the sell-out to an impressive line-up, which includes appearances by Rage Against the Machine, Bjork, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arcade Fire, and the Jesus & Mary Chain, among many others.

Tollet also cleared the smoke about a Coachella venue change, revealing to Billboard.com that “rumors about that whole area being developed for houses and golf courses” were true, but that with the addition of Stagecoach, a country music festival held the following weekend, land owners have agreed not to develop the site.
