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.
