If you’re one of those bucket list-type people, we’ve got just the festival for you. You’ll be able to check some legendary acts like Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Who and Roger Waters off your list all in one weekend (!!) at Desert Trip festival in Indio, California at the Empire Polo Club, which is also home to Coachella Music and Arts Festival
Instead of a millennial-heavy, flower-crown donning crowd, Desert Trip targets baby boomers, who have been somewhat of an untapped festival audience. This a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for classic rock fans as these veterans have never before shared the same bill all together.
The Rolling Stones and Dylan kick things off Friday, Oct. 7, with McCartney and Young taking the Saturday slots on Oct. 8. while Waters and the Who close out the event on Sunday, Oct. 9.
Roger Waters will appear on Deep Tracks (Ch. 27)‘s the Jim Ladd Radio Show tonight at 7 pm ET to talk about the just-announced festival. Later this week, you’ll hear from more Desert Trip artists. Stay tuned for more info.
Three-day passes start at $399 for general admission with reserved seating going for as much as $1,599. Tickets go on sale Monday on DesertTrip.com.
