We're still recovering from 2015, but Coachella festival 2016 will be here before we know it. The Indio music festival kicks off a season of live music weekends around the country—put simply, all eyes and ears will be on Coachella next spring. Find out when tickets go on sale, who's playing the fest, which artists you have to see and what you'll be eating between sets (spoiler: food from some of the best restaurants in Los Angeles). We'll see you there, with flowers in our hair.

What are the Coachella 2016 dates?

Great question. The fest will be held over the weekends of April 15-17, 2016 and April 22-24, 2016.

When are tickets available?

Presale tickets went on sale months ago, but some more general admission passes will go on sale Wednesday January 6, 2016 at 11am PST—while supples last, which won't be long. To get the lay of the ticket-buying land (and some pro tips, too), click here.

How much will tickets cost?

For the 2016 festival, GA tickets are $399, or $459 with a shuttle pass included. VIP admission is $899, and VIP parking is $150. For car camping, tent camping, Lake Eldorado and Outstanding in the Field prices, look here.

When will the Coachella 2016 lineup be announced?

It's here!

I've never heard of any of these losers and don't wish to but I live next door to the polo grounds and am forced to endure the horrible noise they dare call music. If these sounds were inflicted on terror suspects they would be called war crimes and with good reason. I can't wait for them and their many zombe-clones to go away.
