Coachella: Staying Put & Sold Out. Bonnaroo: On Sale 2.23.07.

Coachella 2007
From Billboard.com:

In a first, the 2007 edition of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival is officially sold out in advance, more than two months prior to its April 27-29 engagement at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif. And despite rumors to the contrary, Coachella will remain at the palatial desert venue for the foreseeable future, according to Goldenvoice co-founder Paul Tollett, who books the festival.

One of the key reasons: Goldenvoice committed to a second event at the Polo Field, the country festival Stagecoach, which will launch the weekend after Coachella. "There are rumors about that whole area being developed for houses and golf courses," he tells Billboard.com. "We said we'd make this commitment to them, but please don't make houses here, and it worked."

The fact that Tool is playing an additional live date at a venue that encourages long, big performances will bring in a lot of their fanbase, particularly those that missed their most recent run. The fact the Police are reuniting and this may be the easiest way to get a reasonable ticket outside of the Ticketbastard feeding frenzy and subsequent outrageous scalping means that Bonnaroo tickets are going to go quick. Note that the prices gradually increase. Early bird gets the worm. The following info is straight from Bonnaroo.com.
