Following in the footsteps of Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, Goldenvoice, the organizers of Coachella just announced the festival will expand to three days in 2007. The desert extravaganza will take place April 27-29. As of now, no acts have been announced, but SomethingGlorious can tell you that up-and-coming British buzz band Fields will be on the bill. As I dig up more, I'll fill you in.
Coachella will be followed a week later on May 5-6 by an as-yet-to-be-named country music festival that will also be held at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif., featuring a mix of bluegrass, alt-country and straight-up Nashville style country. So far, acts will include George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Sugarland, Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Sparrow Quarter featuring Bela Fleck, Emmylou Harris and Nickel Creek. To keep things interesting, festival-goers will be entertained with a storytelling area featuring the likes of Garrison Keillor 2006 Texas Poet Laureate Red Steagall.
