Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood and Eric Church headline 14th Annual Stagecoach: California’s Country Music Festival
Stagecoach has unveiled the lineup for the 2020 edition featuring Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood and Eric Church headlining California’s Country Music Festival. The 14th annual event is back Friday, April 24th through Sunday, April 26th at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA. Rhett headlines Friday night while Underwood closes things out on Saturday and Church rounds out the weekend on Sunday.
“Shattering our all-time attendance record in 2019 only made our team work harder and dive deeper to deliver more to our fans this year,” says festival Talent Buyer Stacy Vee. “The Stagecoach 2020 lineup is all about high energy and getting every type of country music fan fired up. On top of this crazy lineup, Guy Fieri is back, Diplo is back, and we have much more in store that is absolutely going to blow minds!”
The three day event will also feature performances by Brett Young, Dan + Shay, Alan Jackson, Dustin Lynch, Midland, Jon Pardi, ZZ Top, Morgan Wallen and more (lineup as of October 15th is below).
Fan-favorite Guy Fieri’s Stagecoach Smokehouse is back again for its third year in a row to reveal new chefs, pit bosses and BBQ vendors. Guy and friends will be showcasing their pits and rigs and offering taste tests to fans throughout the weekend with live demos. Stay tuned for the full food lineup.
“I’m stoked to be firing up my Stagecoach Smokehouse again this year where we’ll be cookin’ up some bad ass barbeque,” says Guy Fieri. “So, ride on down to Flavortown and hang out with me, my buddies and some real deal pit masters from around the country.”
Sunday night welcomes the return of Diplo Late Night In Palomino. After the unforgettable and first-ever live performance of “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus at the festival last year and the debut of Diplo’s country project with collaborations from Morgan Wallen, Cam and Jonas Brothers, who knows what other surprises the superstar producer/DJ will have on deck this season!
Returning to the festival this year is the SiriusXM Spotlight Stage, which will once again highlight today’s rising stars like Hardy, Caylee Hammack and Gabby Barrett and others. The Honkytonk Dance Hall also makes a comeback in addition to High Class Hillbilly owner and singer Nikki Lane’s Stage Stop Marketplace.
