Just weeks after the 2012 wrapped up, Coachella tickets will be on sale Thursday

California's Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival - one of the most talked about events this year so far - has announced that tickets to its 2013 event will go on sale this Thursday. Obviously, it's a little while - probably about nine months - until the line-up is announced.

The event will once again be held over two weekends, with the line-up repeated, after the format debuted successfully this year.

These will take place Friday 12 - Sunday 14 April and Friday 19 - Sunday 21 April.

The LA Times point out that there's been a price-hike for the 2013 edition, with a three-day general admission ticket now $349 (all-inclusive of fees and charges), which is up $34 from last year's $315.

A VIP ticket for next year will now cost you $799, which is up on last year's price of about $710 - when fees were factored in.

You can, however, pay for tickets in a seven-month payment plan. It requires 20 percent of the ticket price to be paid up front and there's no refunds or transfers.
