INDIO, Calif. - This fall, the Empire Polo Club in Indio will be hosting a new music festival.
The Desert Oasis Music Festival will take place October 7-8 at the polo fields, and will feature 24 bands.
The festival, linked to Empire Music Ventures LLC, was announced earlier this week.
It's scheduled to take place on the same weekend as the Goldenvoice-produced festival, 'Desert Trip', took place last year. Earlier this summer, Goldenvoice announced Desert Trip will not be happening in 2017.
Last year, 143,318 tickets were sold for both weekends of Desert Trip.
Zak Dahlheimer will be sitting down with the owner of the Empire Polo Club to talk about the upcoming concert coming to Indio. Catch his full report tonight at 5 p.m. on KESQ News Channel 3 and at 6:30 p.m. on CBS Local 2.
