Baby Boomers will be the next generation to be “Rockin’ in the Free World” at the Indio Polo Grounds near Palm Springs. Desert Trip – The Coachella of classic rock – is coming this October. Tickets go on sale Monday, May 9 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
Since 2001, crowds of Generation Y music fans have been flocking to the Polo Grounds for the annual Coachella Festival — known for top-tier bookings and headline-grabbing reunion shows (Outkast, Guns N’ Roses). Now the Coachella Festival Promoter, Goldenvoice, has announced its newest music festival to be held at the Polo Grounds. Desert Trip, scheduled for October 7 through 9, will feature a power house line up of classic rock legends including Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. Rounding out the bill will be rock and roll icons Neil Young, the Who and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd.
But instead of a drawing a millennial-heavy crowd, this festival aims squarely at Baby Boomers, many of whom attended the original Woodstock on Yasgur’s Farm back in the summer of 1969.
