It’s festival season and Goldenvoice, the promoters behind the Coachella festival, say that they are close to sealing a deal for another three-day US concert starring some of music’s most iconic acts: the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, The Who, and Roger Waters.
This festival, which will also be held at Empire Polo Field in Indio, California —where Coachella is held–will occur on the weekend of October 7th– 9th.
Whilst still in the final stages of planning, the first night lineup will likely feature Dylan and the Stones, with Young and McCartney the following night, and closing the weekend will be The Who and Roger Waters.
One of the standout features of this festival will be that the performers will all deliver a full performance production on a single stage, as opposed to the usual cut-down set that is usually the norm for festivals. It’s also a nice payday for the artists as it’s been hinted that each act will be paid in the region of $7 million.
Elliot Roberts, Neil Young’s manager, told the LA Times: “It’s so special in many ways. You won’t get a chance to see a bill like this ever again. It’s a show I look forward to more than any show in a long time.”
Official plans for the autumn festival should be announced in the coming weeks.
