Final thoughts, comments and notes from the epic Desert Trip weekend music festival at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California.

Desert Trip 2016 brought an estimated 70,000 music fans to the desert of Southern California. “Oldchella,” as it was dubbed, featured a true once-in-a-lifetime lineup of classic rock icons, including Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and The Who.

The experience happens again this coming weekend as the performers return for Weekend 2.

The show is expected to gross about $160 million, making it the most lucrative music festival ever.

“Seeing the Stones rock the house for 2.5 hours on Friday night without as much as an ice bath for Mick Jagger’s 73-year-old feet,” writes David Hockman of “Saturday’s double bill of Neil Young and Sir Paul joined forces near the end of the night, as the pair teamed up for “A Day in the Life,” “Give Peace a Chance” and, with heads banging and guitars a-blazing, “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road?”
