Goldenvoice aims to host Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones for new three-day festival
Once the dust dies down in Indio, Goldenvoice is reportedly going to follow up Coachella with the announcement of a historic new event. The Los Angeles-based promotional giant has plans to throw another three day festival at the Empire Polo Grounds in October, though Calvin Harris and Jack Ü likely won’t be on this bill. Rather, Goldenvoice is aiming to land Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Who, Neil Young, and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters for a mega-show of the most influential and formative talents of the ’60s and ’70s rock revolution.
The Los Angeles Times reports that these six acts have never been booked all together, and what’s more, Dylan and McCartney have never shared a bill together. Plans are nearly finalized and so far the event is slated to take place October 7-9, though the official announcement will likely be made in the coming weeks.
Tentative arrangements have Dylan and The Stones going back to back on the festival’s opening night, followed by Young and McCartney the next night. Roger Waters and The Who, as of now, are pulling closing duties on October 9. Furthermore, Goldenvoice has confirmed that the festival will feature full stages and production, making the event something along the lines of Coachella-meets-Woodstock.
