Desert Trip Festival Officially Announced

The concert of a lifetime

If you’re a classic rock fan at heart, this epic new festival is right up your alley. Goldenvoice, the organizers of Coachella, have officially announced the concert of a lifetime, Desert Trip.

The festival will run from October 7th-9th at The Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, CA. As reported earlier, the lineup will feature six huge rock pioneers: The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Sir Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who.

The Stones and Dylan open the show on Friday, McCartney and Young rock Saturday’s stage and Waters and The Who close the show Sunday. Take a look at the conceptual renderings of how the stage setup will look:


According to their website, this so-called “Oldchella” festival will also feature an “all-star lineup of world renowned chefs and 40 of the best restaurants from Los Angeles to New York.”

The prices are a bit of a tearjerker though, ranging from $199 for a single day to $1599 for the standing pit. Tickets go on sale Mon. May 9th at 10 a.m. via Desert Trip.
