Desert Trip Concert

Desert Oasis Music Festival via Facebook

The latest big music festival event set for the Coachella Valley is the Desert Oasis Music Festival on October 8 and 9.  Unlike Coachella, Stagecoach, and last year's inaugural Desert Trip festivals, the Desert Oasis Music Festival will feature reggae, rap, and hip hop acts.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more on Desert Oasis, and how to try to get tickets to the festival starting today (Friday) at noon.

More than 70 people were arrested or cited during Desert Trip Festival's second weekend -- many fewer than the typical number of arrests and citations made during the Coachella and Stagecoach festivals.  However, many of the arrests and citations at Desert Trip were more characteristic of an "Oldchella" crowd.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.

It's already being dubbed "Oldchella."  Goldenvoice, the promoters of the annual Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, yesterday confirmed that six of the biggest acts in rock history will perform at a three-day series of concerts called, "The Desert Trip," at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio this coming October.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has details.
