One of the biggest country music festivals in the world, Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California, celebrated its 15th anniversary this weekend. The Goldenvoice festival reached viewers around the world via the Amazon Music livestream.
Luke Bryan was Friday night’s headliner. Before Bryan played some of his 30-plus No. 1 hits, Jon Pardi warmed up the crowd before he was surprised with an invitation to become the first-ever California native invited to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Other Friday highlights included Breland bringing out Danielle Bradbery during his set, while Elle King, Priscilla Block and Riley Green had audiences singing along to every word. ZZ Top headlined the Palomino Stage, while Trixie Mattel kicked off Stagecoach’s much-loved Late Night Palomino series. The night also saw a fantastic set by acclaimed mash-up DJ Girl Talk.
On Saturday, Kane Brown was night’s headliner. His pyro-packed set lit up the desert sky and had a special appearance from his wife and fellow artist Katelyn Brown. Just before him, Old Dominion played a perfect set of their hits. Over at the Palomino Stage, Bryan Adams was Saturday’s headliner.
Kameron Marlowe, Lily Rose and Stagecoach favorite Nikki Lane impressed fans across the festival on Saturday. Nelly wrapped up the night with his own Late Night Palomino set, while Dillon Francis had fans dancing well into the night at the Honky Tonk.
Chris Stapleton closed out the festival with his headlining set on Sunday. Before his set, Brooks & Dunn brought their hits to the Mane Stage, in addition to bringing out Lainey Wilson for their song “Cowgirls Don’t Cry.”
Tyler Childers headlined the Palomino Stage, while country artists and stars of the acclaimed TV show Yellowstone—Wilson, Ryan Bingham and Luke Grimes—all played sets throughout Sunday. Frequent Stagecoach performer, and this year’s Honky Tonk curator, Diplo closed out the night with his Late Night Palomino set.
Celebrity chef Guy Fieri was once again a big presence at Stagecoach. He was joined for cooking demonstrations by ZZ Top, Old Dominion, Bailey Zimmerman, Yellowstone’s Taylor Sheridan and Lainey Wilson, and more throughout the weekend at Guy Fieri’s Stagecoach Smokehouse.
