It’s official. A once-in-a-lifetime concert featuring rock and roll legends will take place this fall in the Coachella Valley.
“Desert Trip” will take place in Indio on October 7-9, at the Empire Polo Club. This is the home of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and the Stagecoach Country Music Festival.
The three night concert kicks off with The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan and His Band. Paul McCartney and Neil Young + Promise of the Real preside over night 2. The final night features Roger Waters and The Who. Goldenvoice, the promoters of the event, tell us that performances will start right sunset and each artist will play a full set. This is going to be a concert for the history books.
