Tickets went on sale Monday for "The Desert Trip," a festival that organizers now say will span two weekends in October at Indio's Empire Polo Grounds, featuring six legendary classic rock acts.
The festival, originally announced for the weekend of Oct. 7-9, will now also be stretched to Oct. 14-16.
The concert will feature The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, The Who and former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, performing at the same venue where the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals are annually held. Dylan and The Rolling Stones are set to perform on the first night of each weekend; McCartney and Young, with his brother Lukas' band, Promise of the Real, on the second night; with Waters and The Who closing out the festival.

Though the pricing plans are similar to the recent Coachella and Stagecoach festivals, Desert Trip won't be a day-into-night affair and will have stadium-like seating. The Polo Grounds will open each day at 2 p.m. with sets to start after sunset.
There will be no opening acts.
Grandstands will border five rows of reserved floor seating, with standing-room tickets available up front and near the stage.
World-renowned chefs from 40 restaurants will be on hand. For an extra $225, attendees can choose an "Outstanding in the Field" option featuring a four-course meal while they watch the concert, with two available dinner seating times per night.
Overnight car, tent and RV camping will be available, and may be necessary for some as Coachella Valley hotel rooms are reportedly already filling up for the Desert Trip weekend.
Car and tent camping will be available for $99, while RV camping is $950 for a 20-by-50-foot space, which comes with free showers, food and beverage vendors, 24-hour medical and security personnel, a fully stocked general store and internet cafe. Campers can also stay at Coachella's Lake Eldorado, which features teepee style tents, for $1,600.
