Desert Trip, the classic rock festival that first emerged in 2016, could be returning and could boast yet another high-profile bill.

Per Hits Daily Double, the festival is rumored to be returning in the near future with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band being one of the potential headliners.

The outlet also noted, “The organizers of classic-rock fest Desert Trip—led by Paul Tollett, who is also wheeling and dealing for the Coachella lineup—are said to be working hard to secure Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, but that booking appears shaky at best. The rest of the bill, insiders say, looks like a home run.”

While the rest of the bill is currently unknown, it’ll likely be filled with a number of big names. In 2016, Desert Trip took place on two weekends — October 7-9 and October 14-16 — at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. and featured Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Who, Neil Young and Roger Waters.
