There is a lot of brilliant festivals we’d love to experience through stewarding work, but there may be a new number one on our list after the announcement of ‘Desert Trip’. The new festival has been created by the same people as the now iconic Coachella festival and is taking place at the same location – the Empire Polo Club in California.
The festival will take place between 7th and 9th October this year – and just wait until you hear the line-up! With the untimely deaths or so many musical legends at a young age this year, it seems as though the festival is squarely aimed at those with a reignited passion for revisiting the works of some of our greatest ever artists.
The festival has only just been announced, but it led its assault on the world with some attention-grabbing names – headliners for each of the days include The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who! That’s all we know for certain so far, so we can’t wait to see which other legends will be added to the bill soon.
The only criticism of the festival so far has been the price. To get into the inner circle nearest the stage, tickets will set you back almost £1200 (and that’s not including camping fees). The most budget friendly option (a single day ticket) will cost you almost £140 – compare that to £89 for a day ticket to V Festival in the UK.
Tickets go on sale on the 9th May.
