The Oscars are set to be announced tomorrow in Beverly Hills, but today, this Holiday day, the uber-California music festival experience will be announced. From Mexico City, no less.

"It is something that's crossed my mind," Paul Tollett, creator of Coachella, told the LA Times when asked if he was going to start a Coachella type festival south of the border. Rather, Tollett is gushing "about the surprising resonance of the Coachella brand with Mexican fans, artists and press."

However, after last year's new festival by Tollett, the country-music Coachella counterpart, Stagecoach, was announced, today he is expected to also talk about a three-day festival in New Jersey, complete with the New York City skyline as the backdrop from Liberty State Park

As for Coachella, there have been many rumors and phony line-ups announced, but today will be the final word. The event, which takes place at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA, will be for three days, starting April 25. The next weekend is the two-day Stagecoach at the same location.

The big question we'll be asking is... will the pizza still be $8?
