Want to make your father jealous and spend all of your money at what could be the most historic music festival of all time? Then we have just the place for you to go this October.
Last week we shared rumors about the organizers of Coachella hosting a new music festival in Indio, California. This week the rumors have been confirmed and we are jumping for joy and scrambling around for affordable airfare.
The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Who, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd will headline the intergenerational megafestival, which has been named Desert Trip from October 7th-9th!
This unbelievable lineup will be the first of its kind, bringing together the most revolutionary and influential artists from the sixties to just one stage. On Friday night, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan will kick off the festival. Paul McCarney and Neil Young will play Saturday, while Roger Waters and the Who will close out the historic event on Sunday. The Desert Trip music festival will mark the first time that these six legends will appear on one bill. It will also mark McCartney and Young’s first time ever playing at the same music festival.
Tickets for Desert Trip go on sale on Monday, May 9th. Single GA tickets are $199, three day passes are $399, and the VIP package ranges from $424 for single tickets to a whopping $1,599 for the whole three day event. We told you it would be expensive. According to Goldenvoice, the company which oversees Coachella, each headliner will receive up to $7 million dollars each in exchange for performing at Desert Trip.
