Desert Trip Will Not Return in 2017

After a successful inaugural event that saw rock legends like Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, The Who and more come together, Desert Trip will not return in 2017.

Billboard reports that Goldenvoice’s Paul Tollett confirmed the event will not take place. “Maybe someday in the future we’ll do something similar,” Tollett said.

The cancellation comes amidst rampant rumors of a possible Led Zeppelin reunion at the festival, which grossed $160 million over two weekends in October of 2016. Robert Plant’s website alluded to an impending announcement of something with a vague update that simply said: “Any time now….”

The message prompted Zeppelin fans and media alike to suspect that the band might be reuniting for their 50th anniversary, however that rumor now appears to be a new Robert Plant solo record.
