    Default DESERT TRIP "Mega-Fest" October 7-9, 2016

    Stones, McCartney, Dylan, the Who, Waters, Young Confirm Mega-Fest



    Three-day fest dubbed Desert Trip will take place this fall

    The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, the Who, Neil Young and Roger Waters have all confirmed that they will take turns playing Desert Trip.

    Six of rock's biggest artists and bands will perform at the same fest for the first time this fall. The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, the Who, Neil Young and Roger Waters have all confirmed that they will take turns playing Desert Trip, a three-night event from the organizers behind Coachella. The festival will take place at Indio, California's Empire Polo Club from October 7th through the 9th.

    Dylan and the Stones will open the show on Friday with back-to-back sets. Young and his backing band Promise of the Real will pair with McCartney on Saturday, with the Beatle headlining. And the Who and former Pink Floyd singer-songwriter Waters will close out the event on Sunday.

    Three-day passes run from $399 to $1,599. Single-day tickets will go for $199. Tickets will go on sale Monday, May 9th at 10 am PST at the festival's website.

    The promoter, Goldenvoice, announced it was working on the event in mid-April, before the artists were confirmed. This past weekend, five of the six artists teased their involvement in the festival with social-media posts that teased October. Young posted his video on Monday.

    The first artist to confirm involvement was the Who's Roger Daltrey. "It's a fantastic idea for a festival," he told Toronto Sun in late April. "It's the greatest remains of our era. I'm glad we made it." He also speculated that putting together such a big bill might lead to a ticketing frenzy. "I just hope a lot of normal fans can get tickets before they get snatched up."

    "It's so special in so many ways, because you won't get a chance to see a bill like this, perhaps ever again," Young's manager, Elliot Roberts, told Los Angeles Times in April. "It's a show I look forward to more than any show in a long time."

    Although the fest will mark the first time all of the artists have shared the same bill, many played Live Aid on the same day in different cities in 1985. Mick Jagger played a solo set (duetting with Tina Turner), while Dylan performed with the Stones' Ron Wood and Keith Richards in Philadelphia; Neil Young also performed. McCartney and the Who both played in London during the festival.

    No Rick Astley, Men without Hats, A-Ha, Boomtown Rats or Milli Vanilli? I ain't going. What's the point?

    When I first heard this rumor a few weeks ago, I suggested on Facebook to name it the "Millennium Concert"

    . . . because all of their ages add up to exactly 1,000. Heeeeyyyyoooooooo!!!

    You should, man. The old geezers still bring it. Amazingly.

    Saw 'em for the second time in 2013 at Staples in LA. Keef was The Man. Mick still struts like a 20 year old at 70. Crazy.

    It's a sweet bill. But i just won't do festivals anymore. Not one day, and definitely not three.

    I do wish that Waters and Gilmour would pull the sticks outta their butts and go out one last time as Floyd, tho.

    That would have to be the greatest line up for any festival ever. That will never be beat.

    Would be an amazing weekend if I was 20 years younger. Couldn't imagine standing around in a paddock for 3 days in a row.

    Its a once in a lifetime thing though.... I hope they film it.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    McCartney puts on a great show and The Stones still bring it. Ticket prices are up there.

    I know but it's just a bit TOO "baby boomer". Almost like desperation for one last hurrah.

    Idk...

    Bob Dylan? Eek.
