The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Who, Paul McCartney and Roger Waters have released teasers related to something happening in October.
The event being teased is most likely the rumoured mega festival featuring all of those artists, plus Neil Young, at the Coachella festival grounds.
The Stones posted a 30-second clip showing a record spinning “All Down The Line” while cigarette smoke wafted upward. Waters’s video showed grainy black-and-white concert footage of a stadium show. Dylan’s clip was of a career reel to the sounds of “Ballad of a Thin Man,” while McCartney posted live footage of him singing the Beatles’ “I’ve Got a Feeling.” All of the posts cryptically included the word “October…”

Goldenvoice and AEG Live (the organizers responsible for Coachella, Stagecoach, and other festivals) are reportedly behind the as-yet unnamed mega-rock festival, but they have not officially confirmed their involvement yet.
Word has it that the festival would see Dylan and the Stones kicking things off on Friday night, Neil Young with Promise of the Real playing on Saturday before McCartney, and The Who and Waters closing things out on Sunday.
