Stagecoach Festival, California’s biggest country music celebration, is gearing up to return to the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif., in 2024. Today, the festival–scheduled to take place from April 26 to April 28–unveiled its blockbuster lineup with country superstars Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, and Morgan Wallen set to headline respectively on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The mindfully curated lineup also welcomes fan-favorite acts like Jelly Roll, HARDY, Willie Nelson & Family, Megan Moroney, Allison Russell, Bailey Zimmerman, Leon Bridges, Dwight Yoakam, and many more. Notably, chart-topping rapper Post Malone, who is known for his country influences and raw singing voice, will also grace the Stagecoach stage with a selection of covers.
“This year’s Stagecoach is going to be one hell of a party,” said Church in anticipation of his return to the desert stage.
Lambert also expressed her excitement, saying, “There is something so special about playing music when the sun goes down in the middle of the desert. The fans, the setup, the location—there really is no other festival like it. My band and I have had the chance to experience the magic that is Stagecoach a few times now, and we can’t wait to be back in 2024!”
Wallen rounded out the hype for the festival, calling it “legendary,” and expressed his honor about headlining the final evening.
Stagecoach will also keep the desert heat blazing into the evening with performances by Nickelback (Friday), Diplo (Saturday), and Wiz Khalifa (Sunday) in the Palomino area that will close each day of programming. Diplo is also set to usher some of his friends and the biggest names in dance music to the HonkyTonk, marking the second time he’s done so.
In addition to the music, the event is bringing the Stagecoach Smokehouse–curated by American icon and philanthropist Guy Fieri–back for its fifth year. The Smokehouse will feature new pit bosses, chefs and BBQ vendors, with Fieri and his friends offering taste tests throughout the event. The full food lineup will be announced soon.
Also returning to the event are the Compton Cowboys, 10 Black horseback riders from California’s Richland Farms, making their return to Stagecoach for the third consecutive year.
To keep fans in the loop, SiriusXM’s The Highway (CH 56) will feature an exclusive interview with Jelly Roll and Stacy Vee, offering insights into Stagecoach 2024.
