When Desert Trip arose, Pasadena offered the Coldplay concert to Indio police as practice.According to Marshall, Indio police spend several hours at the Rose Bowl prior to the Coldplay concert learning about protocol, but left prior to the actual concert starting.Marshall told The Desert News that the most valuable experience he got was getting to see what they had gotten right in terms of planning for Desert Trip.“We walked away with reinforcement that we’re on the right track,” he said.
