According to Rolling Stone, the tease is for a classic rock "mega-festival" in Indio, Calif. (presumably at the Empire Polo Club), home of the Coachella festival. Neil Young is also rumored to be performing, although he has apparently opted out of the social media promotion route. More details are certain to come soon.
UPDATE: All six acts (including Young) are now confirmed for the event, called Desert Trip, running October 7-9; tickets go on sale Monday at 10am PDT.
SECOND UPDATE: A second weekend, from October 14-16, has been added as well.
