Jesse Lawrence, (May 17, 2016):
Desert Trip is on its way to becoming the most expensive music festival of the summer - by a long shot. Last week, Coachella festival organizers announced a mega-festival featuring performances from the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Who, Neil Young and Roger Waters to be held over two weekends on October 9-11 and October 16-18 in Indio, California.

“Oldchella” fans (and brokers) went rabid for tickets, forcing primary tickets to sell out in just three hours, with hundreds of passes hitting the secondary market shortly after. Estimates predict that Desert Trip will gross over US$150 million over the two weekends, with the headlining acts taking home an estimate of $6 to $9 million for their appearance on stage.

Desert Trip’s expected gross is so high because tickets are pricier than any festival this summer. At the time tickets went on sale, general admission prices for Desert Trip were set at $199 for a single day pass, while a three-day pass began $399. A three-day pass with admission to the standing pit in front of the stage (floor seats) was priced at $1,599. To compare, the next-priciest festival, Coachella, broke the record for highest gross of any festival in 2015 when it raked in a whopping $84 million from a total of 198,000 tickets sold, and resale 3-day passes averaged just $871. If the gross estimates for Desert Trip prove to be accurate, the festival is already on track to rake in more than $60 million than the next-priciest festival. It’s unlikely - if not impossible - that any festival this summer will come close to that number. -Original
