No ‘Desert Trip’ Weekend For 2017
For those who thought a lineup with The Rolling Stones, The Who, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young was a show which couldn’t be topped, you may be right. According to organizers, Desert Trip 2017 will not take place.
Much was made about a possible Led Zeppelin reunion, due in part to a cryptic message on Robert Plant’s website. However, the L.A.-based concert promoter and Coachella founder told Billboard “We’re not doing Desert Trip this year,” . “We loved 2016 Desert Trip — that was a special moment in time. Maybe someday in the future we’ll do something similar.”
Fondly (or, unfondly) referred to as ‘Oldchella’, as it occupied the same space as the widely successful Coachella, the 2016 weekend grossed a handsome $160 million featuring artists such as the aforementioned, plus Paul McCartney.
Since they haven’t ruled out a future show. Who would YOU want to see?
