Fresh off the heels of another successful Coachella, it seems the Goldenvoice team isn’t resting on their laurels. Instead, with the upcoming (and very much hyped) Desert Trip, the massive festival producer is planning on making the food as much of a draw as bands like The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney.

Here’s the lineup of chefs slated to make the early October trip out to Indio:

  • Curtis Stone (Maude, Beverly Hills)
  • Dominque Crenn (Atelier Crenn, SF)
  • Daniel Humm (Eleven Madison Park, NYC)
  • Ludo Lefebvre (Trois Mec, LA)
  • Michael Mina (San Francisco)
  • Dominique Ansel (Dominique Ansel Bakery)
  • Marcus Samuelsson (Red Rooster, NYC)
  • Michael Voltaggio (ink, Los Angeles)
  • Marcel Vigneron (Wolf, Los Angeles)
  • Jason Neroni (The Rose, Venice)
  • Dakota Weiss (Estrella, West Hollywood)
  • Scott Conant (Scarpetta, Las Vegas)
  • Dean Fearing (Fearing's, Dallas)
  • Phillip Frankland Lee (Scratch Bar, Encino)
  • Jamie DeRosa (Miami)
  • Guy Turland (Bondi Harvest, Santa Monica)
  • Chris Oh (Seoul Sausage, Hanjip; Los Angeles)
  • Duff Goldman
  • Michael Hung (Viviane, Beverly Hills)
  • Steven Fretz (The Church Key, West Hollywood)
  • Ilan Hall (Ramen Hood, Los Angeles)
  • Kristen Kish
  • Elia Aboumrad
  • Kris Morningstar (Terrine, Los Angeles)
  • Christian Page (Cassell's, Los Angeles)

In addition to all that culinary star power, concert-goers will also be able to enjoy cocktails and food from Cedd Moses at 213 and the Houston Hospitality team. Greg Koch of Stone Brewing will lead a craft beer experience, and Rajat Parr will be handling wine.

The plan, it seems, is to craft a food experience that is somewhat separate from the music itself. Guests will pay separately for certain food experiences and be able to buy food on site, or purchase a full weekend bundle for $500 per day. There will be further dedicated dining experiences like Outstanding in the Field as well.

Desert Trip runs October 7 to 9 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Tickets go on sale beginning this coming Monday at 10 a.m. local time.
