Coachella: The next big music festival of the season

(CBS) On the front page of Coachella's website is the following animated-ish warning:

Please be advised:
  • Please do not purchase tickets from a third party
  • Anyone trying to sell a paper ticket is not legitimate
  • There are no single-day tickets for this event - only a weekend pass

And there you have it, people! The next music festival of the season is upon us. So is the rampant scamming that goes on whenever Kings of Leon and P.J. Harvey play the same festival (that's a guess).

But with a line-up that includes every band and solo artist in the world (estimation), it only makes sense that someone or a group of someones would try to sell bogus tickets.

The first day alone - Friday - has huge names, with Cee Lo Green, Lauryn Hill and the Chemical Brothers on the Coachella stage. The festival closes Sunday with a performance by Kanye West.

Check out the set times here and let us know in the comments who you'd most want to see.
