The Lineup for the Desert Trip Music Festival is Here and It Looks Better Than Coachella

May 4, 2016 by Courtney Sulzberger

The rumor is now confirmed.

Parents everywhere are bribing their babysitters, booking their time shares and withdrawing from their kids’ college accounts (as I type, my own father is dusting off his vinyl and attempting to find his old concert tees… please no!)


The lineup for Oldchella, which is actually named Desert Trip, has been announced and, in the opinion of many, it pretty well outclasses what just took place in recent weeks during Coachella.

The weekend-long music festival, which is being put together by Coachella organizers Golden Voice, comes to Indio this October 7-9 with iconic rock legends from the 60’s and ‘70s-era including The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan on Friday, Paul McCartney and Neil Young on Saturday, and Roger Waters and The Who on Sunday.

Rock disciples will tell you, if you haven’t seen these bands, you haven’t lived rock-n-roll.

So… when an opportunity arises, we must take it. And boy is this one awesome opportunity!

The event, hosted at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, is set-up similarly to Coachella, minus the EDM music, under 30 crowd and short set times.

Each performance is scheduled for a full set with musicians playing back to back.

Furthermore, fans can purchase reserved floor seating starting at $699.

Single day admission tickets start at $199 while 3-day tickets are priced at $399.

Passes go on sale this Monday, May 9 at 10 a.m. Pacific time.

Desert Trip will likely be a once-in-a-lifetime event for concert goers young and old featuring a history in rock-n-roll.
