No Desert Trip festival in 2017

The brains behind last year’s Desert Trip festival in California have opted not to stage the two-weekend supergig in 2017.
Sir Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones and The Who headlined the inaugural event in October and there were rumours suggesting Fleetwood Mac and a reunited Led Zeppelin would hit the stage for the 2017 gig, but Goldenvoice’s Paul Tollett tells Billboard there will be no Desert Trip this year.
“Maybe someday in the future we’ll do something similar… but we’re not doing Desert Trip this year,” the concert promoter says. “We loved 2016 Desert Trip – that was a special moment in time. Maybe someday in the future we’ll do something similar.”
Last year’s festival, which also featured sets by Neil Young, Roger Waters and Bob Dylan, grossed a staggering $160 million (GBP124 million) and attracted 75,000 people per weekend.
