Harry here. It’s always tempting to go drive during big concerts or busy holidays but is it worth it? Today, RSG contributor Jim Miller takes a look at an upcoming event in his area to help drivers determine whether the risk is worth the reward!
The same concert promoters that brought you Coachella and Stagecoach have pulled a rabbit out of their hat with a new concert called Desert Trip. It’s a once in a lifetime mega concert nicknamed “Oldchella” featuring The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who!
Tickets for Desert Trip went on sale in May and sold out within hours. Immediately, a second weekend was announced and tickets also sold out in a few hours. So this thing is going to be big, but since it’s out in the desert a couple hours outside of LA, it begs the question: is it worth it for rideshare drivers to head out there and drive? In this piece, I’m going to look at Desert Trip specifically, but regardless of where you’re located, it’s important to analyze the risk vs. reward for mega-events like this and determine whether it’s worth it or not.
