If you're considering attending the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival next year, you have no time to waste.

Advance tickets for the 2013 events, which will be held on consecutive weekends from Apr. 12-14 and 19-21, go on sale this Thursday, May 17.

Tickets can be purchased through Coachella's official website starting at 1PM ET on Thursday. A general admission pass is $349, with a payment plan available for early buyers. A second round of tickets will go on sale in early 2013, so those who miss out on the initial batch of tix will have another shot.

Fans can also purchase camping and shuttle passes, travel packages with hotel reservations, and VIP passes. The lineup for the 2013 event won't be announced for several months, but if history is any indication, the festival will probably sell out in advance anyway.

Coachella, held annually in Indio, California, is typically the first of the year's major American music festivals. This year's fest, expanded to two weekends for the first time, featured the Tupac Shakur hologram and performances by Radiohead, Bon Iver, David Guetta, Florence + the Machine and more.
