The lineup consists of the surviving members of The Who, legends Neil Young and Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters, and former Beatle Paul McCartney. Yes, this is real; and it is happening.
The festival will be called Desert Trip. Friday, Oct. 7 will start off with Bob Dylan and the Stones playing back to back. Saturday, Oct. 8 will have Young and McCartney, then Roger Waters and The Who will close out the festival Sunday night.
General admission ranges from $399 to $1,599. There are also single day passes that are $199. The website says that tickets will go on sale May 9 at 10 a.m.
