It looks like the Coachella music festival will remain in Indio, Calif., now that a city councilman has dropped plans for a ticket tax.

Promoters of the festival, which since 1999 has attracted acts such as Paul McCartney, Prince, Radiohead, Eminem, Beastie Boys and Rage Against the Machine, threatened to move the festival rather than pass on the tax to festival goers. The tax was estimated to be $36 per ticket.
