About the Stagecoach Country Music Festival

.

The Stagecoach Festival is an outdoor country music festival presented by Goldenvoice, The Messina Group, and Moore Entertainment. The festival is located at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA. Various artists attend, whether they be mainstream or relatively unknown, ranging from folk, mainstream country, bluegrass, roots rock, and alternative country.

History Stagecoach took place for the first time in 2007. Put on at the same venue, also by Goldenvoice, Stagecoach is seen as a “cousin” of Coachella. It has grown at a faster pace than Coachella, with the 2012 festival’s 55,000 attendees marking its first sell-out crowd.

.

Notable performers have included Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Brooks and Dunn, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Sugarland, The Charlie Daniels Band, Alabama.[4] George Strait, Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Eagles, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Martina McBride, and Luke Bryan.

The facilities provide on-site camping for some festival-goers. The Desert Sun published an article on the camping, reporting that some attendees think that it, as a standalone event, is almost on par with the concerts. The 2013 festival’s tent/car camping policy was eliminated and the RV camping rules altered due to the overwhelming 55,000 person sellout crowd at the 2012 festival. The new rules stand until Goldenvoice decides on a different approach.

.

Weather

The festival takes place in a desert setting as the city of Indio is a part of the California Desert. Temperatures during the festival’s history have ranged from 107 °F (42 °C) through 41 °F (5 °C).

.

Festival Cuisine

The festival showcases a variety of food and beverages to enjoy over the course of the weekend. Some of the restaurants expected for the 2013 festival are Jackelope Ranch, Las Casuelas Quinta, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Fisherman’s Market & Grill, and vendors like Spicy Pie, Pink’s Hot Dogs, and Waffleman Ice Cream Sandwiches. There are also full bars, a Cantina Restaurant, BBQ contest, and a pancake breakfast supporting the local Lion’s Club.

Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) sanctioned the Stagecoach Invitational BBQ Championship encompassing teams from across the nation competing for the KCBS California State championship.
