In June 2011 Coachella announced that they would be running the festival across two weekend in 2012 to cope with public demand for tickets.

In a statement they said: "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."

Tickets for April's festivals go on sale on Friday 13 January.

Around 90,000 places will be available for each weekend.

In 2011 Coachella was headlined by Kanye West, Kings of Leon and Arcade Fire.

It was first held in 1999 as a two-day event headlined by Beck, Tool and Rage Against the Machine.
