Metalchella is officially real.
The inaugural Power Trip festival will take place October 6-8 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. As previously teased, the headliners are Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden and Tool.
Power Trip is being produced by Goldenvoice, the company behind Coachella and 2016’s Desert Trip — snarkily nicknamed “Oldchella” — which featured a similarly stacked lineup of The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who.
Beyond the big names involved, Power Trip is especially significant for Ozzy and AC/DC.
It’s the first announced live performance for the Prince of Darkness since he revealed earlier this year he was retiring from touring due to health issues and will be his first full live concert since New Year’s Eve 2018.
AC/DC, meanwhile, hasn’t played a show since 2016 and last took the stage with GN’R’s Axl Rose in place of Brian Johnson, who was dealing with hearing issues. Johnson reunited with AC/DC for their 2020 album, Power Up.
Tickets for Power Trip, which start at $599, go on sale Thursday, April 6, at 10 a.m. PT. Registration for the sale is required. For more info, visit PowerTrip.live.
