The Who, Bob Dylan & Roger Waters Hint At October Mega-Festival


In our latest sign that reports of an October festival featuring legendary rockers Bob Dylan, The Who, Roger Waters, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Neil Young are true, three of those acts have each shared short videos that appear to hint at their participation in the as-of-yet unannounced event. The 30-second clips posted on Facebook by Dylan, The Who and Waters contain archival footage leading up to a proclamation of “October.”

As the reports go, Coachella organizers Goldenvoice/AEG Live will throw a festival featuring the six classic rock acts at Empire Polo Field in Indio, California October 7 – 9. Earlier this month, Roger Daltrey confirmed The Who’s participation in the event.

The six Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees have never shared the same bill together and it would also mark the first time Dylan and McCartney would be in the same lineup. The Rolling Stones and Dylan are said to be scheduled for October 7, while McCartney and Neil Young + Promise Of The Real are slated for October 8 and Waters and The Who will close out on October 9.

Here’s the videos posted by Dylan, The Who and Waters on Friday:
