On Tuesday, March 28, metal legends Metallica, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne and Tool posted cryptic teasers on Instagram promoting a new festival that goes by the name Power Trip.

Then, AC/DC entered the chat.

The legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famers shared a short teaser video suggesting they’ll also be performing at Power Trip.

If Brian Johnson and co. were to play, this would be their first live show since 2016.

As of now, it looks like Power Trip will take place at Coachella’s home: the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA from October 6-8.

A full lineup announcement is expected to drop on March 30.

Stay tuned, headbangers.
