The internet was abuzz on Tuesday when organizers of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival released the highly anticipated 2015 line up. This year the 3-day festival will run over two weekends April 10-12 and April 17-19.
This year’s headliners include AC/DC, Jack White, and Drake. With notable performances from Florence and the Machine, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Azealia Banks, Action Bronson, and FKA Twigs.
Some Canadian comrades joining headliner Drake on the bill include The Weeknd, Kiesza, and Keys N Krates.
Since 1999 the popular festival has been the sole reason music lovers and scenesters a like, flock to the California desert every April. Last year due to the overwhelming demand for tickets, Coachella announced the festival would change it’s format, running the festival for two back-to-back weekends.
A pre-sale for Coachella 2015 tickets happened shortly after last year’s festivities, with the remaining tickets going on sale yesterday at noon. As usual those tickets sold like hotcakes, and a record breaking 40-minutes later — organizers announced were sold out.
