Coachella Offers Updates Via Cell Phone/Portable Device

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire)
For the first time, Coachella is offering a Text Message (SMS) service to keep concertgoers updated with what is happening prior to and during the show. Text messages will be sent directly to concertgoer's text enabled phone, Blackberry, or Sidekick. This list is separate from the Coachella e-mail list in that the focus will be on information on the days of the festival. Information that will be sent out includes:

+ Daily artist times for all stages;
+ Last minute set time changes (if applicable);
+ Traffic updates;

+ Weather updates;

+ Alternate parking directions (if applicable);

+ Art exhibit performance times; and

+ Other tips on making Coachella more enjoyable
