But the Power Trip Festival is more than just a gathering of metalheads; it promises an unparalleled experience. This unique nighttime desert setting combined with unmatched concert production will transport you far beyond the typical stadium or parking lot concerts. With three double-billed headlining performances, it’s a weekend escape like no other, promising memories that will reverberate long after the amps are silenced.

Initially met with skepticism over its pricing, the festival organizers have faced headwinds in ticket sales. However, the allure of this iconic lineup performing in such a stunning location is undeniable. Power Trip is set to coincide with the Aftershock festival in Sacramento, produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, featuring headliners TOOL and GUNS N’ ROSES. Additionally, JUDAS PRIEST will fill in for Ozzy Osbourne, who had to cancel due to health issues.

For fans eagerly awaiting AC/DC’s return to the stage, this marks their first concert since September 2016 when Axl Rose filled in for Brian Johnson. METALLICA, too, has history at the Empire Polo Grounds, having performed there in 2011 as part of the “Big Four” event alongside ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, and SLAYER.

This metal spectacle promises to follow in the footsteps of the legendary Desert Trip festival of 2016, which featured iconic acts like THE ROLLING STONES, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters, and THE WHO. With its monumental lineup, Power Trip is poised to make its mark as a monumental event in the world of metal, destined to go down in history.
