Live performances, backstage interviews from famed music festival with top and emerging artists to air on SiriusXM’s The Highway Channel 56
SiriusXM is broadcasting live performances and backstage interviews from the prestigious Stagecoach Festival in Indio, CA this weekend, for the first time ever. The exclusive radio broadcast will air on The Highway – Channel 56, and will include backstage interviews and live concert performances from Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Kelsea Ballerini, Kane Brown, Brett Young, Lee Brice, and more. The press release doesn’t mention airing Garth Brooks’ Sunday closing performance as airing, but perhaps the sat rad will surprise fans and air it on Brooks’ The Garth Channel on 55.
SiriusXM has also announced that it will debut the SiriusXM Spotlight Stage, a special Stagecoach stage highlighting up-and-coming artists including Highway Find artists Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde, Adam Doleac, Seth Ennis, and numerous others.
In addition to all the official festival activities, a special edition of SiriusXM’s Music Row Happy Hour hosted by Buzz Brainard, will air live from Stagecoach on Friday, April 27th.
“SiriusXM is proud to bring California’s country music festival to all of North America,” says Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Music Programming for SiriusXM. “We know our listeners will appreciate hearing both the established artists on the main stages and all the emerging artists on the SiriusXM Spotlight Stage. We’re also thrilled to originate our Music Row Happy Hour live from the festival.”
SiriusXM’s Stagecoach Country Music Festival broadcast begins on Friday, April 27th at noon PT through Sunday, April 29th and features continuous coverage of the three-day outdoor country music festival with live performances, artist interviews and commentary from backstage. Select performance highlights and interviews, including Dwight Yoakam, will also air later on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country, channel 60. SiriusXM will continuously play the music of both emerging and established artists throughout the weekend-long festival and will air the previous day’s highlights.
