Metallica, AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, Tool, Iron Maiden, and Ozzy Osbourne have announced a three-day mega-concert at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California, from October 6-8. The event is called Power Trip, which is ostensibly a reference to the 2016 mega-concert Desert Trip and not an homage to the late Riley Gale’s beloved Texas thrash metal band. (When reached by Pitchfork, representatives for the band Power Trip offered no comment on the California event.) Find the Power Trip poster below. The artists all teased the festival’s announcement on social media earlier in the week. Desert Trip in 2016 featured Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Roger Waters, and the Who. Like Desert Trip, Power Trip is being put on by Goldenvoice. Power Trip will take place at the same location as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Coachella 2023 is taking place from April 14-16 and April 21-23 with headliners Frank Ocean, Bad Bunny, and Blackpink. Earlier this year, Ozzy Osbourne canceled some European tour dates and suggested that he was done touring for good due to a spine injury. He left the door open, however, for events like Power Trip that do not require extensive travel. “My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country,†he explained. © 2023 Condé Nast.
