Palm Springs ready to rock



Posted on: 21 Jul 2016

California’s archetypal desert city, Palm Springs, is gearing up for what is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime musical extravaganza.

Taking place over the course of two weekends in October (7-9 & 14-16), the Desert Trip festival will be headlined by six of the world’s most iconic and influential rock and roll artists including The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters (ex-Pink Floyd) and The Who.

The event will be staged at the iconic Empire Polo Club, home of the popular Coachella Valley Music Festival (pictured), and each of the artists will play a full set of songs on both weekends.

The venue is a 30-minute transfer from Palm Springs, and a fleet of shuttle buses will be on hand throughout the festival to transfer people back and forth.

Many of Palm Springs’ leading hotels, including the Riviera Palm Springs and Renaissance Palm Springs, are offering special Desert Trip packages and concert tickets are currently still available online.

Travel experiences in Palm Springs on offer to festival-goers include fabulous dining, shopping, architectural and celebrity experiences, as well as adventures like riding on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and trekking on horseback into the San Jacinto Mountains.
