Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones reportedly booked for ‘biggest concert in history’

The festival is expected to be held at the Coachella site in October

Update: Details have now been confirmed for the Desert Trip event

Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney are thought to have been booked for what reports are calling “one of the biggest concerts in history”.

Billboard is among multiple sources to report that Goldenvoice Entertainment, the promoters behind Coachella Festival, will hold the festival in Indio, California between October 7-9. It will take place on the same site as Coachella.

As well as the aforementioned artists, The Who, Neil Young and Pink Floyd‘s Roger Waters have also signed up for the three-day event, according to the reports. The headline acts are expected to be paid $7 million each for their sets.

“It’s so special in so many ways,” Young’s longtime manager Elliot Roberts reportedly told The LA Times. “You won’t get a chance to see a bill like this, perhaps ever again. It’s a show I look forward to more than any show in a long time.”

No more details of the event have been revealed but a full announcement is expected shortly.


Meanwhile, Coachella Festival runs at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California this weekend (April 15-17) and returns next weekend (April 22-24). LCD Soundsystem are headlining alongside Guns N’ Roses and Calvin Harris.

Kanye West made a surprise appearance at Coachella joining A$AP Rocky on stage during the latter rapper’s set. The pair teamed up to perform ‘Father Stretch My Hands Pt 1’ from West’s recent ‘The Life Of Pablo’ album.

LCD Soundsystem closed Friday night’s action by covering David Bowie and Guns N’ Roses live.
