Organizers have announced a list of live webcasts for the first weekend, including sets from Florence + the Machine, Frank Ocean or Bon Iver.

Meanwhile, Coachella attendees will likely be packing some rain gear for the festival's Friday kick-off, as Accuweather predicts possible weekend showers.

Perhaps the following weekend will bring the sunshine. This year marks the first time in Coachella's 13-year history that performances will be spread out over two three-day weekends. The same acts will perform to accommodate high demand.

Coachella just unveiled set times this week, which means some festival-goers may have tough choices to make.

Friday night will find The Black Keys, Explosions in the Sky and M83 all performing at the same time, while Bon Iver and David Guetta will grace their respective stages simultaneously the following evening.

Coachella 2012 will feature 120-plus acts, including Radiohead, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Calvin Harris, Miike Snow, Justice, Girl Talk, Goyte, The Shins, Feist and Noel Gallagher.

Lesser-known Coachella acts getting some buzz include Gary Clark, Jr., We Are Augustines and Wolf Gang.
