Rumors are already floating around for next year's Coachella. "While an official announcement is still forthcoming," teases The Daily Swarm, "Coachella promoters Goldenvoice have begun booking artists for next year’s festival, which has been moved up two weeks from its regular last weekend of April slot to April 17–19, 2009."

Of course, they later updated their post saying a "spokeslady insists the 2009 festival dates remain unconfirmed." LAist wrote said "spokeslady" and she told us the same: "No further comment at this time." However, her e-mail did come with a smiley face.

Dates for Stagecoach, Coachella's country and roots festival, are also not announced. But the Desert Sun reports that it's going back to two days. “It’s a two-day festival,” Paul Tollett told the paper. “Last year The Eagles popped up, so that was just an anomaly. California’s coolest band pops up and you grab it.”
