AXS TV further cements its status as TV’s home for live music festivals, announcing that it will be the official broadcaster of the 2014 Stagecoach Country Music Festival. The network has acquired the rights to air the fan-favorite spectacular for the second consecutive year with StubHub as the Official Broadcast Partner.
Stagecoach-now in its eighth year-will take place from Friday, April 25th through Sunday, April 27th, boasting incredible performances from country music’s biggest stars, and sending viewers on a one-of-a-kind experience that spans decades of classics and modern hits. AXS TV will be on site at Stagecoach, broadcasting over 12 hours of live coverage over three days featuring performances by Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Easton Corbin, Lynynrd Skynyrd, Thomas Rhett, Shelby Lynne, Jason Aldean, Hunter Hayes, Jennifer Nettles, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Luke Bryan, Crystal Gayle, Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Chris Cagle, Dustin Smith, Asleep At The Wheel, and many more. This is the only multi-day live country music broadcast on television.
“Last year AXS TV produced over 300 hours of live music television. No other network comes near to our commitment in providing live performances from today’s top musical artists from stages around the globe,” said Mark Cuban, AXS TV founder. “As we continue to be the home of live music festivals, we’re pleased to be able to showcase Stagecoach once again as it is loaded with impressive performances, by some of the industry’s most influential artists.”
The 2013 festival was a major success for AXS TV, with over five million households tuning in for the event. The network delivered over 16 hours of live Stagecoach coverage in 2013, giving viewers an unprecedented look at the popular country concert and now AXS TV’s viewers can enjoy those moments again when on Sunday, February 9th at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT, the network will air the Best of Stagecoach 2013. The Best of Stagecoach 2013 features an impressive lineup that includes Dwight Yoakam, Lonestar, Phil Vassar, Jeff Bridges and the Abiders, Thompson Square, Florida Georgia Line and GRAMMY Award-winning “Wagon Wheel” crooner Darius Rucker.
If you’d rather see Stagecoach in person, three day passes are still available.
