UPDATE: The festival, which is called Desert Trip, has been officially announced.
Oldchella is real! Last month, we reported that Coachella organizers GoldenVoice were planning a massive boomer-rock festival for this October. Apparently, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, the Who, Roger Waters, and Neil Young will be heading to Coachella’s site, the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California. The stars will reportedly have their full stage setups, and they’ll all play full sets. And now, five of the six main acts have posted teasers about something that’ll be happening in October. They’re staying vague, but we can all be pretty sure that we know what’s happening. Here are the videos:
We’re still waiting on Neil Young. Maybe he’s getting cold feet about the irony of playing “Old Man” in a setting like this one.
