Coachella 2012 to be Held Over Two Separate Weekends

31 May

This morning Coachella made an announcement about next years festival:

We’re excited to announce Coachella 2012 will be held over TWO WEEKENDS.

In an effort to try and accommodate everyone who wants to experience the festival, COACHELLA 2012 will be two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends. We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people.

We know many of you were unable to attend this year’s festival because passes sold out much sooner than anticipated. We were truly surprised by the overwhelming response and remain honored by your passion and enthusiasm. We also know some of you purchased through non legitimate sources and were inconvenienced, gouged or totally scammed. We hope that these changes will give everyone the opportunity to purchase directly from Coachella.com.

Passes go on sale beginning this Friday, June 3rd, 2011, at 10am PST until the following Friday June 10th, 2011, at 10pm PST. This advance sale will be the only opportunity to take advantage of the Coachella Payment Plan. Passes will be available through a payment plan of 10% down and 8 equal monthly payments OR by payment in full. The price of three-day passes remains at $269 plus fees for the sixth consecutive year.


Coachella Weekend 1 – April 13-15, 2012 | Coachella Weekend 2 – April 20-22, 2012

I’m not sure how I feel about this, definitely an interesting concept however, I feel like the festival will lose some of its magic now that it’s trying to be the exact same festival over two weekends.  But it will still rage hard, that’s for sure! What do you think?




Mumford & Sons- Lover’s Eyes Live from Coachella

4 May

My apologies for the lack of music yesterday! It’s my finals week and I’ve been absolutely swamped with work. I came across a live recording of the new Mumford & Sons song, “Lover’s Eyes,” from Coachella. I can’t wait for a new album from these UK Folk masters. Check it out.

‘Tis The Season…

12 Apr

Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Manchester, TN

Our favorite season here at WEST LA CNCT has finally arrived! So dust off your tent, fire up the barbecue, and head for the shade because it’s festival season! At WEST LA CNCT we have what some might call an obsession for live music, so we decided to add a ‘festivals’ section for that very reason.  In coming days expect to see posts and updates on festivals all over the country including: festival news, lineups, rumors, survival guides, videos, downloads, and everything in between.

Coachella (Indio, CA) is only four days away! Anyone with a ticket to this sold out festival is in for a treat this weekend. With an amazing lineup and mind blowing production, this year’s Coachella is going to be legendary!

Here’s the lineup to get you excited for this weekend! Check back for set times to be announced very soon.

Finally, Mr. Mau5!

1 Nov

Finally, Deadmau5 has released “Sofi Needs a Ladder”!  In September last year, the earliest forms of this song began to circle around the internet under the title, “ You Need a Ladder“.  It featured extended samples of the Zelda theme song and a heavy electro house beat.  The song resurfaced at Coachella 2010 amidst Deadmau5’5 EPIC performance (This was the debut of his “cube” light setup).  The Zelda samples were no longer included, but a distinct female voice now punched throughout the song.  This voice belonged to none other than Tommy Lee’s girlfriend, Sofi, whose name is an acronym for “Some Other Female Interest”.

At the end of last month, a remix contest began for “Sofi Needs a Ladder”.  The winner, which will be announced November 23, will receive an opening spot for Deadmau5 on his upcoming tour.  A creative electro remix by contestants Caudill & Turnipseed is included in the inaugural West LA Cnct post.   “Sofi Needs a Ladder” will be included in Deadmau5’5 upcoming album, 4 x 4= 12, released on December 6th.  Check out the full track listing at Consequence of Sound.
