Desert Trip will be a three-day musical event, brought to us by the same folks that put on the famous Coachella music festival, held in late April. And it’s going to be in the same location as Coachella: the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA.
Welcome to the Coachella Valley of California, where you’ll find Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, Palm Springs the winter playground of the rich, and of course Indio, home of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival — and as of October 7-9 this year, Desert Trip. The Salton Sea kisses the valley at its south end so if you want to get there a couple days early or do a day trip after the festival, there’s a site you might want to check out — before it dries up completely.
If this is the music of your generation and you would like to experience a festival with the music of your youth live one more time, lock down the weekend of October 7-9. This could possibly be the only chance to experience these six legends perform in the same place.
