A Double Weekend Festival
The festival extended to hosting the festival on two separate weekends, each with identical lineups. Coachella improved the facilities with recycling, a general store, showers, charging stations, and an Internet cafe. Several expected that demand wouldn't be high enough to sell out for both weekends, but in 2012 the tickets sold out in less than three hours.
