California’s Stagecoach Festival Moves to April

California Country Festival Arrives Two Weeks Earlier

The third annual Stagecoach Festival will be held two weeks earlier than usual in 2009. The two-day event is scheduled for April 25-26 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif., near Palm Springs. The event organizer, Goldenvoice, will also hold the annual indie rock festival Coachella on April 17-19 in Indio. The lineups for both events will be announced in the coming months. Last year’s Stagecoach festival featured the Eagles, John Fogerty, the Judds, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Dwight Yoakam, among many others.
