The big show in the desert just got doubled.
“Oldchella”– the Coachella weekend with Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Roger Waters is expanding to a second weekend.
Promoter Goldenvoice is evidently sold out of all the tickets to the October 7th-9th senior citizen festival for rockers. So now they’ve added the following weekend, October 14th-16th.
This means that for two weekends in a row leading up to the presidential election, hundreds of thousands of white, well to do educated voters will be in one place. So the questions are– will Hillary Clinton speak? Will politics play a part? Will Donald Trump be welcomed or shunned? Because you know this event — called Desert Trip–is too good not to be exploited by the candidates in some fashion.
