Fauxchella 2012 is coming to San Francisco.

Coachella 2012 is here – if “here” for you is the greater Los Angeles area. For the rest of us, Coachella can be a money sink, with travel and lodging costs often doubling the already-steep ticket price. If you’re a Bay Area resident and the proud owner of a few wallet flies, Coachella artists often detour to San Francisco to pick up extra shows before and after Coachella. This trickle-down benefit has given rise to a sort of shadow festival called Fauxchella, and we should see the phenomenon become even more pronounced as Coachella expands to a two-weekend format for the first time. Festival artists are contractually prevented from playing in the Los Angeles area up to a month before and after the event, and plenty of them want to slip out in the downtime between weekends.
