Garth Brooks, Keith Urban and Florida Georgia Line to Headline Stagecoach 2018
This year, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Get ready for the biggest country music event ever staged. In 2018, the songs you sing, the food you crave and the people you love take center stage as Stagecoach returns Friday, April 27, through Sunday, April 29, for the festival’s 12th edition at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif.
Chart-topping duo Florida Georgia Line will headline Friday night, to lead into four-time Grammy Awards winner Keith Urban‘s Saturday performance, while, in a rare festival appearance, Garth Brooks will close out Sunday. The three-day event will also feature performances by Lee Brice, Jake Owen, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Young, Chris Lane, the Brothers Osborne, Midland and more.
“Everyone knows Stagecoach is the biggest country festival in the world, [and] we are coming with the sole purpose of making it the biggest party on the planet!” says Brooks in a press release. Urban, who hasn’t played the festival in eight years, shares that he’s “super excited” to be back, while the FGL guys are ready to “throw the biggest party of the year.”
New to the festival this year, Stagecoach will be introducing SiriusXM’s Spotlight Stage to highlight today’s up-and-comers — artists such as Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde, Seth Ennis, Runaway June, Jordan Davis and more — while an updated HonkyTonk Dance Hall is set to feature even more DJs. SiriusXM will also broadcast live from the festival, featuring performances and interviews.
In 2017, Stagecoach will also be adding car camping for $179, as a lower-budget option for attendees looking to stay closer to the music. Now with a bigger culinary focus, look for a mouth-watering BBQ experience with craft beer and craft cocktails, plus additional fare that will surprise. Passholders will enjoy a diverse array of choices that go far beyond traditional barbecue while keeping with the classics: brisket, ribs, pulled pork and more. Look for exciting culinary announcements, including a list of chefs, pit masters and restaurants, on our website and social channels.
Festival passes go on sale Sept. 22, at 11AM PT at StagecoachFestival.com. More information is available at the event’s website, and information on travel and lodging is available via Valley Music Travel.
