Eric Church, Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan to Headline 2016 Stagecoach Festival
The annual event is set to be held April 29-May 1 in Indio, Calif. Church will headline on April 29, while Underwood will headline on April 30, and Bryan will headline on May 1.
Other artists slated to appear include Lee Ann Womack, Sam Palladio, Little Big Town, Dustin Lynch, the Doobie Brothers, Old Dominion, the Band Perry, Billy Joe Shaver, Robert Earl Keen, Kristian Bush, Chris Stapleton, Rodney Crowell, Joe Nichols and Jana Kramer, among others.
All three headliners have previously performed at the Stagecoach Festival, which began in 2007. More than 60 acts are slated to perform at this year's event, which also boasts camping and eclectic food choices. In 2015, the Stagecoach Festival drew a crowd of more than 225,000 people to see artists such as Merle Haggard, the Oak Ridge Boys, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and ZZ Top.
“That first year, we had 12,000 people,” says Paul Tollett, president and CEO of Goldenvoice, which created the Stagecoach Festival. “We thought, ‘Well, maybe this won’t work here.'"
Some of the proceeds from the festival benefit several charities, including the Coachella Valley Community Trust, the Indio Teen Center and the Silverlake Conservatory of Music.
