Goldenvoice, the promoters of Desert Trip, announced Monday that the three-day classic rock festival has added an identical second weekend “due to overwhelming demand.” Fans will now be able to catch the event — which features the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters, and the Who — on October 14 to October 16, in addition to the previously scheduled dates of October 7 to October 9.

Desert Trip will be held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, which is where Goldenvoice’s smash festival Coachella takes place. Coachella began offering a second identical weekend of programming in 2012.

Rumors about Desert Trip began to swirl in April when stories in the Los Angeles Times and the Toronto Sun hinted at the event. Goldenvoice officially announced the festival earlier this month. Like the first weekend, tickets for the fresh dates begin at $399 and are on sale now.
