Desert Trip With An All-Star Lineup Is Happening, If You Can Afford It

DT_conceptual-rendering_big-800x554

It’s official, Oldchella is called Desert Trip Indio and this concert of a lifetime will feature the six most iconic bands of rock ‘n’ roll, i.e The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and the Who. This will be happening on October 7-8-9 in Indio, at that same place where Coachella and Stagecoach are already happening each year. Indio is surely becoming the music capital of the world.

Of course, a lot of questions are still pending, first, the major question, how much will this monster concert cost?

According to a few websites like the San Bernardino Sun, tickets go on sale Monday, May 9, at 10 a.m. pacific, and passes are $199 per day for general admission or $399 for a three-day general admission pass. However, I am not sure what kind of deal you get for this as they also announce a 3-day standing pit pass for $1,599, reserved floor seats at $699, $999 and $1,599 for three-day passes. You can also buy reserved grandstand seats at $999 and $1,599 for three-day passes.

So does this mean that the $199 one-day ticket gives you just the right to go through security and see the giant screens with Neil, Paul, Bob and the others playing one mile away? Looking at the drawing above from Cactushugs, it seems it’s gonna be the case. See the lawn far far away, this is where you will stand for $199 a day.

Plus you have to include the lodging, the food, probably not cheap either as they promise an all-star lineup of world renowned chefs and 40 of the best restaurants from Los Angeles to New York. You have to be very rich to afford such a weekend.

I just wonder who would be interested by a $1,599 pit ticket, not the EDM kids who are either not interested or not rich enough, and certainly not the boomers attending the event. Let’s face it, the average age of people going to Desert Trip is gonna be between 60 and 70, and except if the pit feels up with wheelchairs, it’s gonna stay empty.

In any case, the event will sell out as anything happening in Indio and organized by Goldenvoice. Buy your ticket at DesertTrip.com on Monday if you can, it sounds like pure exploitation of the old generation nostalgia.

    FartStock. Z to the A of Woodstock. What once mattered is now anti-mattered cancelling each other out. The Gilded Age of Rock n Roll will never die. Or someone might this year so buy your tickets now so you can say how much you loved this on Facebook when the time comes.

    So where is the investigation into the ticket sale scandal ?? Guess we just have to call the State Attorneys office.
