Coachella Organizers Plan Huge Rock Festival With Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan & More


If you've been looking for a music festival that you can bring your parents too, congratulations! You've totally found it—or at least you will this fall, if the folks currently bringing you Coachella have anything to say about it.

Goldenvoice and AEG Live produce Indio's two-weekend mega-music event, along with Stagecoach, their other massive and country-leaning music festival. The L.A. Times revealed that plans are in play for Goldenvoice/AEG to launch a third festival in the desert, and it's set to bring on the Rolling StonesBob DylanPaul McCartney, The WhoNeil Young and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd for its founding lineup.

That's if everything goes according to plan. Negotiations are still taking place between the festival and its desired roster, though they've gone ahead and thrown the weekend of October 7-9 out there if these rock 'n' roll heavyweights opt to sign on.

As these acts typically deliver sets lasting two or three hours apiece, the lineup will likely stay close to these six heavy-hitters: The L.A. Times notes that the first night, October 7, will likely feature sets from Dylan and the Stones, with Macca and Neil Young playing on October 8 and Roger Waters and The Who closing out the weekend on October 9.
