First we had Coachella. Then we had Countrychella. Now we have Oldchella — erm, excuse us, Desert Trip.

Following a few weeks of rumors, Coachella organizer Goldenvoice has announced a three-day mega-concert set for the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California this October. The lineup: The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan on Friday, Paul McCartney and Neil Young on Saturday, and Roger Waters and the Who closing things out on Sunday.

That’s a lot of star power, and adds up to roughly a gazillion records sold. It’s also the first time all those bands and artists will have shared a bill.

It all goes down October 7, 8, and 9, and tickets go on sale May 9 at 1 p.m. EST. Prices start at $199 for a single-day pass, and three-day general admission tickets will run $399. Things escalate quickly from there — Reserved floor: $699, $999, and $1,599; Reserved grandstand: $999 and $1599; Standing pit: $1,599

More information is available via the Desert Trip website, and you can peep a seating-chart rendering below. The Polo Club looks like it will be designed like an arena — so sadly we won’t be seeing the Stones under a dance tent.
