Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney Confirmed for Desert Trip Festival

The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney are among the confirmed headliners at the classic rock festival Desert Trip.

The Who, Neil Young and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters will also perform at the three-day music fest, which will be held from Oct. 7 to Oct. 9 in Indio, Calif., at the Empire Polo Club — the site of the popular rock, rap and electro music-centric festival Coachella.

Earlier this week, both McCartney and the Stones vaguely teased an October performance via Twitter, but Desert Trip officially confirmed the news Tuesday. The festival will be presented by Goldenvoice, the promoters behind popular fests like Coachella, Stagecoach, Panorama and Firefly.

The inaugural Desert Trip will kick off with post-sunset performances by the Stones and Bob Dylan on Friday, followed by McCartney and Young on Saturday night. Waters and The Who will perform on Sunday, the final day of the music event.

Tickets to Desert Trip, which will mark the six acts’ first time performing at the same event, go on sale May 9 at 10 a.m. PT on DesertTrip.com. Three-day passes start at $399, while single-day passes cost $199. Reserved tickets are available for the floor ($699, $999, $1,599), the grandstand ($999, $1,599) and the standing pit ($1,599).
