Good news for Coachella fans: the annual music festival will remain at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA, reports NBC Los Angeles.
Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett, whose company organizes the festival, had threatened to move the event after Indio City councilman Sam Torres tried to impose a tax on events with capacities of over 2,500. The tax, which would have raised tickets prices by $36 each, has now been suspended.
"I don't take a threat from Paul Tollett lightly,” said Torres in a statement. “I cannot in good conscience allow this to happen no matter how dire the city’s circumstance. My sincere hope is that we can now move past this episode and I personally look forward to working to enhance relationships."
The 2012 edition of Coachella, which took place over two weekends back in April, was headlined by Radiohead, The Black Keys, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
