How much would you pay for a weekend festival that includes the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and the Who?
You may just have the chance to see that show (and test the limits of what you'll pay for a concert ticket) this fall if Goldenvoice, the people who put on this weekend's Coachella Festival, have their way. It all started when the company wanted to balance out their year with a fall festival at a time when the area around Indio, CA did not have heavy tourist travel.
They settled on Columbus Day weekend, October 7 to 9, and went about trying to land some of the biggest artists in the history of popular music. While negotiations are still ongoing and nothing has been officially announced, those in the know say the tentative schedule is:
- Friday, October 7 - Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones
- Saturday, October 8 - Neil Young, Paul McCartney
- Sunday, October 9 - The Who, Roger Waters
A possible official announcement could come in the next couple of weeks.
