Rumors began to percolate late last week that Goldenvoice, the promoter behind festivals including Coachella and Panorama, will stage a three-day event featuring some of classic rock’s biggest names this fall. Now the Who frontman Roger Daltrey seems to have confirmed that the famed British rockers will appear at the festival.

“I think it’s us and [Pink Floyd’s] Roger Waters,” Daltrey told Postmedia Network, according to the Toronto Sun. “I mean it’s a fantastic idea for a festival. It’s the greatest remains of our era. I’m glad we made it.” Daltrey added that he hopes “a lot of normal fans can get tickets before they get snatched up.”

Along with the Who, the event’s rumored lineup features Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, and Waters. A source told the Los Angeles Times last week that an official announcement is coming soon and that acts will have “their full stage productions, with full sets.”

Though Daltrey is the first of the rumored acts to comment, though Neil Young’s manager Elliot Roberts told the Times that “you won’t get a chance to see a bill like this, perhaps ever again.”

The Who are currently on tour through June in celebration of their 50th anniversary.
