Last weekend's Desert Trip is on its way to becoming the highest-grossing concert event ever, having moved advance tickets worth more than $150 million. Those who attended the festivities in Indio, California, certainly got their money's worth, taking in performances by six legendary acts while enjoying unforgettable collaborations – such as Neil Young sitting in with Paul McCartney – and once-in-a-lifetime set lists. See exclusive photos from the classic-rock summit, featuring McCartney, Young, the Rolling Stones, Roger Waters and the Who, as well as shots of fans, food and other aspects of the fest's unique desert ambience.
