Desert Trip Will Not Be Returning in 2017

Desert Trip, last year’s epic classic rock festival headlined by The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Roger Waters, will not be making a return in 2017, Goldenvoice’s Paul Tollett has confirmed to Billboard.

“We’re not doing Desert Trip this year,” the L.A.-based concert promoter and Coachella founder tells Billboard. “We loved 2016 Desert Trip — that was a special moment in time. Maybe someday in the future we’ll do something similar.”

The decision not to stage the event in 2017 puts to rest months of speculation about the future of Desert Trip, which grossed a staggering $160 million over two weekends in October 2016 and included performances by Bob Dylan, Neil Young and The Who.
