Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Who & More Tease Mega-Festival Planned For October

1

The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, The Who and Roger Waters have all released teasers surrounding their involvement in a rumored mega-festival set to take place at the Coachella festival grounds from  October 7-9.

All of the acts posted teasers for the blockbuster fall event on their social media accounts. In a 30-second clip, the Stones showed a record spinning “All Down The Line” while cigarette smoke wafted upward. Waters’ clip showed a grainy black-and-white concert footage playing a stadium show. Dylan posted a brief career reel to the song “Ballad of a Thin Man.” McCartney posted live audio footage singing the Beatles’ “I’ve Got a Feeling.” All of posts involved the same cryptic word “October…” hinting at the massive event.

Neil Young is also rumored to appear at the event, but did not post anything to his social media accounts. A representative for Young did not immediately return a request for comment. Tentatively, two of the six Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will play each night, with Dylan and the Rolling Stones opening up the festival Friday night. Saturday would see Young and the Promise of the Real performing before McCartney. The Who and Waters would end the festival on Sunday night.

Goldenvoice and AEG Live, the organizers behind Coachella, Stagecoach, FYF, Firefly and Panorama, are reportedly involved in producing the festival, but have not officially confirmed their involvement.
