Coachella Might Be Moving!

FUSE TV - Coachella Might Be Moving!

Pack up that tent: Coachella MIGHT be moving out of Indio, the California desert town that it has called home since its birth in 1999. According to the Desert Sun, festival producers are threatening to move out of Indio after the 2013 event if lawmakers move forward with a proposed tax on entrants to large festivals. 

A proposed measure for 2014 would impose a five to 10-percent tax on admissions to events that draw more than 2,500 people. That comes to about $36 per ticket, which, Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett told the Desert Sun,  the production company would eat so concertgoers don't have to. But that will cost the promoter about $6 million. So they're ready to roll out.

"If the tax initiative of putting $4 million to $6 million onto Coachella gets on the ballot," Tollett told the paper, "we're going to take off 2014; 2015 we'll be at a new facility outside of Indio."

And Goldenvoice had big plans to stay, too: In March, the promoter attempted to buy the Eldorado Polo Club, plus three additional neighboring ranches, for a total of 280 acres surrounding the festival grounds. Another 600-acre purchase is now "in limbo," said Tollett.

So only time will tell. Where will Coachella move if the proposed tax gets approved? No word yet. But where would you want to attend Coachella? Tell us in the comments.
