Quick story from Billboard. Billboard spoke with Paul Tollett, the founder of Coachella, and got some sad news. After grossing “$160 million over two weekends in October 2016,” Tollet and other organizers of Desert Trip have decided not to bring the festival back this year. This announcement quashes rumors of a stacked lineup, which included a Led Zeppelin reunion.
Tollet did leave the door open for the event to return in the future.
