Desert Trip: Stones, McCartney, Waters, Dylan, Who Festival Confirmed By Coachella Organizers
It is confirmed. Being dubbed "the concert of the century," Coachella organizers have pulled together six of the biggest rock acts ever and put them onto one festival, Desert Trip. Over one weekend, revelers will have the chance to see The Rolling Stones, Roger Waters, Bob Dylan and his band, The Who, Paul McCartney and Neil Young with Promise of the Real.
This is the first time all six of these legends will share the same stage together.
The story first broke about this festival a few weeks ago when negotiations with these six artists were in its final stages. Now it confirmed and set to go the weekend of Oct. 7-9.
This won't be like your traditional festival with a full day of programming and a few main headliners - these are the acts. According to Billboard there is the possibility of an additional act to open for the artists, who will be split into pairs over each night. Each act will perform a full set, not just a short hour-long show that is typical of a normal festival.
Tickets won't be cheap for Desert Trip with this type of a lineup. It has been reported that each act is getting up to $7 million each for their contribution. A three-day pass will start at $399, while single day tickets will go for $199. Reserved floor vary from $699 to $1599, while reserved grandstand are either $999 or $1599. The standing pit will run you $1599. They are counting on baby boomers with plenty of cash to buy these pricey tickets. Hotel packages, premium seating and camping are also available at various prices. Tickets go on sale Monday, May 9 at 10 a.m. PST.
