Big-name country stars mix with indie artists and classic rockers at the 13th annual Stagecoach Festival, slated for April 26–28. The three-day festival takes place on the grounds of the Empire Polo Fields in Indio—the same location of another little California music festival also in April. Passes start at $349 for general admission and go on sale on Friday, Oct. 19, at 11 a.m. PDT.
Stagecoach features one main headliner every day, including American Idol judge Luke Bryan on Friday, singer-songwriter Sam Hunt on Saturday, and chart-topper Jason Aldean on Sunday. In addition to mainstream headliners, the lineup includes country acts Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Cole Swindell, along with some rock surprises like Poison’s Bret Michaels and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
What's country music without some barbecue? Guy Fieri will return to the Stagecoach Smokehouse to bring pit bosses together to serve barbecue styles from all over the country. Belly up to the Beer Barn for more food options and craft beer (and phone charging stations!) or drink cocktails on the porch of The Terrace.
Stagecoach Safari Camping is a new addition to this year’s fest, which will feature “prime powered RV parking spots and furnished, air-conditioned Shikar-style tents amidst lush palm trees” as well as access to the Safari Saloon and dedicated Safari golf cart transportation.
