Coachella promoter Goldenvoice is in the process of booking a major, once-in-a-lifetime lineup for a fall event, tentatively planned for Oct. 7-9.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Neil Young and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters—all Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members—will take part in this first-of-its-kind concert at Empire Polo Field in Indio, California, where Coachella is currently underway this weekend.
Marking the first time the six acts have shared a bill, the schedule would have Dylan and the Stones would play back-to-back on Oct. 7, followed on Oct. 8 by Young and McCartney. Closing it out would be the Who and Waters on Oct. 9.
“It's so special in so many ways,” Young's longtime manager, Elliot Roberts, said of the prospect of such an event. “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.”
As we reported in February, Goldenvoice has been planning a fall event for some time. In 2013, the company agreed to maintain two weekends of Coachella and country fest Stagecoach until 2030, with an option to add as many as two more weekend events later in the calendar.
Goldenvoice nor parent company AEG have yet to confirm the three-day concert, although an official announcement is said to be coming in a matter of weeks.
