The Stagecoach Music Festival, held in Indio, California, is one of country music’s largest and most anticipated events. The festival was founded in 2007 by Paul Tollet and is presented by Goldenvoice, The Messina Group, and Moore Entertainment. Stagecoach attracts some of the biggest names in country music with leading music acts of folk, mainstream country, bluegrass, roots rock and alternative country all performing. Held at the same venue as the Coachella festival, Stagecoach has grown at a faster pace than its more illustrious cousin with the 2014 festival registering around 63,000 footfalls per day. It is definitely a must-go for any country music fan!
