Power Trip Festival put a call out to all hard rock fans yesterday, March 29, with a teaser video asking, “Are you ready for a Power Trip?” The concert poster crafted in the video was really cool but vague, and today, March 30, Power Trip painted a clearer picture by confirming its headliners (first reported by Variety): Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and Tool.
The inaugural Power Trip Festival is scheduled for October 6 to 8, 2023.
According to the original Variety report, Power Trip comes from Goldenvoice, founders of Coachella, which explains the location: Empire Polo Field in Indio, California.
“Despite the Coachella connection, the festival is more like a hard rock version of Goldenvoice’s 2016 Desert Trip festival, which featured a classic-rock dream team of Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, the Who and Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters,” Variety relayed.
Osbourne’s involvement is particularly notable because he announced his retirement from touring in February due to ongoing physical ailments.
