Coachella will be held April 11-13 and April 18-20, 2014, Goldenvoice announced Monday.
The advance ticket sales will open at 10 a.m. PT on Friday, May 24.
This is the only chance residents get for a payment plan.
Important information on the wristbands:
Goldenvoice will make a Coachella-related announcement on Monday — and music fans can probably get ready to open their wallets for next year’s festival.
A picture posted to the Coachella website and social media accounts on Friday shows an artistic photo of Coachella with the text: “10 a.m. Monday.”
If history holds true, Goldenvoice will likely announce the dates for the 2014 festival weekends as well as an advanced ticket sale that could happen within days.
It was about this time last year — May 14, 2012 — that Goldenvoice announced the next year’s dates, then opened advance sales from May 17-24, 2012.
The Desert Sun’s music site — MyCoachella.com — will provide an update as soon as the announcement is made on Monday.

The Tupac Shakur hologram was the story of the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, so you knew it was just a matter of time before it caught on. It just took a little longer than expected.
The Rock the Bells festival will feature both Eazy-E and Ol’ Dirty Bastard holograms, rollingstone.com reported Wednesday. ODB will join his former group, the Wu-Tang Clan (which performed at this year’s Coachella), while Eazy-E will be alongside Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, a group he signed in the mid-’90s.
Rock the Bells kicks off Sept. 7-8 in San Bernardino.

The artistic recycling bins that made their home at Coachella could be coming to a school near you.
Global Inheritance — the Los Angeles-based company behind the bins — posted on its website:
“After two spectacular weekends of Coachella and saving bottles/cans from the clutches of trash cans, the redesigned recycling bins are ready for their next tour stop – your school.”
Selected schools in Southern California will receive three to 10 redesigned recycling bins.
“Glee” star Chris Colfer appeared on “Ellen” on Thursday — and they spent the first several minute of the interview talking about Coachella.
Ellen — who flashed a photo of the famous ferris wheel and the Coachella snail on the screen behind them — asked Colfer about his first time at the festival.
Festival producer Goldenvoice announced an attendance figure for its Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals this month that is larger than the population of Coachella Valley.
Arrests dropping during all three festival weekends for Coachella and Stagecoach.
Police made a total of 171 arrests over two Coachella weekends, down from 235 last year. They made 124 arrests during Stagecoach, down from 174 last year. During all three weekends, the majority on alcohol- and drug-related charges — and, most popularly, underage drinking.
More than 80,000 people paid for entrance into the sold-out Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival each weekend. An estimated 45,000 people paid to get into Stagecoach Festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.
Law enforcement from across Southern California are tapped to be on the grounds — including the four police departments in the valley (Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Indio and Palm Springs) and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Here’s the recap of arrest numbers, from Indio police:
