Desert Trip concert - October 2016Back in May, we told you about the quite exceptional sounding pair of concert weekends coming up next month, called the Desert Trip festival being held in October at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California (the site of the annual Coachella Festival). The Desert Trip event features a stellar line-up over three days of October 7-9th, and 14-16th (line-up identical both weekends):

  • Friday: The Rolling Stones - Bob Dylan and his Band
  • Saturday: Paul McCartney - Neil Young and Promise of the Real
  • Sunday: Roger Waters - The Who

The initial, major release of tickets for both weekends sold out pretty much instantly, despite the high cost of some of the more premium offerings. The good news for those of you who would still like to go, is that more tickets are being released for sale on Saturday. Tickets, priced at $399 to $1,600 per three-day pass and $199 for single-day admission, sold out in just three hours for both weekends after going on sale on May 9th. Daily attendance will be 75,000, including reserved seat and general admission.

At 1pm PDT on Saturday, Desert Trip will release a limited number of additional reserved seats and general admission passes for both weekends of the festival. Ticket prices for general admission 3-day passes, plus shuttle, are $424 each. Ticket prices for reserved seating 3-day passes range from $699to $1599 each. The new allotment of tickets will be available only online through Hotel, ticket and shuttle travel packages are available through

We hope that there will be filming of these shows to make them available at some point for all of us who will be missing out on a great event, but as yet, have no information on anything like this happening. Should this change, we will let you all know via these pages (we've already had a number of people ask if there will be a DVD/Blu-ray release, or a TV broadcast).
