What's New At Stagecoach This Year: Everything You Need To Know If You're A Country Music Fan

Stagecoach isn’t just any country festival, it’s the biggest in California and this year, you might be in for a surprise. The popular country music festival held in Coachella Valley every year in April, has announced some exciting new changes for this year’s show (taking place April 27-29). If you’re picturing a small town get together this is going to be a rockin' party to remember.

While Coachella is full of flower crowns and trendy hairstyles, Stagecoach is making its own fashion statement this year. Nikki Lane, country music singer and style maven, will be hosting her first ever Stagecoach Bazaar. “Curating the Stage Stop Marketplace is the perfect way for me to blend my love for country music with my love for vintage western wear and American made products,” Nikki Lane said. The shop will be filled with all kinds of treasures to help fans find the perfect festival look that hey can take home too. “Attendees can expect to see unique items of all kinds,” continued Nikki, “such as perfectly distressed blue jeans, cowboy boots, and rock and roll t-shirts layered with enough old turquoise to sink a ship—all curated by vintage dealers from all over the US.”

An added bonus is the chance to find unique pieces and support small businesses and artisans. And what better way to kick off your summer style then listening to great music and finding a one of a kind look to wear all summer long! According to Nikki, “All of the vendors are hardworking small business owners working to maintain integrity and authenticity with regard to how they dress and live.” Brands with booths at the festival include Bycila, Cake and Punch, Calico Hats, Naytures Empire, Trails Clothing, Wallet Buckle and more.

 

Stagecoach is also debuting its new SiriusXM stage, which wil feature fresh acts starting at noon each day. Another way for attendees to change up their experience and find the latest and greatest up-and-coming artists in a range of styles from rock to alternative country.

The new stage is set up to highlight up-and-coming performers, so don’t expect a lot of traditional country. This year’s new artists include lots of rock and roll sound and new styles. Lindsay Ell, the female country singer with a sound all her own and well known for her hit single "Champagne," will be at the festival showcasing her latest songs. Headlining acts scheduled to perform festival weekend include household names like Keith Urban and a rare appearance from Garth Brooks, to chart toppers like Florida Georgia Line and Kelsea Ballerini.

So, grab your cowboy hat and your girls, and get ready for a weekend to remember! And don’t forget to check out all the great styles on social media for when you’re in need of BBQ style inspo.
