The Stagecoach Festival, also known as the Stagecoach Music Fest, is an annual outdoor country music festival held each year at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Different artists come, whether they are mainly popular, regional country, folk, roots, or bluegrass, ranging from young to older. With an estimated crowd of 90, the Stagecoach Festival has become one of the Indio area's best-known annual events. Over the years, the festival has gained popularity by adding local favorites to its lineup, as well as attracting a variety of international acts. Each year, musical acts sign contracts with a Stagecoach representative and travel to the beautiful countryside of Indio to perform and display their merchandise.
This past spring, Stagecoach was planning on changing its lineup for this upcoming season. Due to economic difficulties, the business was forced to cancel several shows, including a benefit concert by legendary blues musician, Thomas Rhett. No matter how difficult the financial times were outside Stagecoach, the local community was organizing grass-roots concerts to help keep the traditional music festivals alive. Stagecoach was planning to honor those by holding a "Founding Fathers" concert in memory of Thomas Rhett, scheduled for October.
Stagecoach will continue to support the Indian music festivals in Indio by booking well-known musicians to play at its concerts. The "Founding Fathers" concert will feature Thomas Rhett, Boz Scaggs, Johnny Cash, along with many other well-known performers. Stagecoach is pleased to reschedule all sold-out tickets for the original sold-out date of October, following the tragic news of Thomas Rhett's death from pancreatic cancer. A fund-raising concert was immediately planned and will be rescheduled for the new date, set for March.
Stagecoach's decision to reschedule shows is not being done in favor of one artist or another, but rather in recognition that the success of the Indio music festival depends on an audience that continues to grow in size. Stagecoach is offering the "Founding Fathers" concert and related concerts in its normal format, but it has also added a camping option for patrons. If you are interested in attending the "Founding Fathers" concert or another of Stagecoach's festivals, now is the time to get your Stagecoach Festival Tickets Discount early. The prices on the regular festival tickets are cheaper than ever and you can guarantee that this lineup will be tough to beat.
Stagecoach's "Founding Fathers" concerts are scheduled for the first weekend in April, running through April. Ticket prices for this highly-anticipated event are set to go up again in the next few weeks, as per an announcement by the company. It is not yet known whether the "Founding Fathers" concert will be held at its previously scheduled time, set for march, or if the festival will move to a different date. It is also unclear when the original "Founding Fathers" lineup will appear. The new band will be comprised of the previously announced bands: Japandro and Lzzy Hale; along with newcomers Boz Scaggs and Ashanti.
Stagecoach's" Guy Fieri" concert will be held at a later date after all of the aforementioned concerts have taken place. Stagecoach says that a final list of performers for the Guy Fieri concerts will be coming out soon and that they are expecting a lot of names to be added to the original lineup. Of course, Stagecoach is hoping to attract even more visitors to their new venue this spring by offering more discounts. Whether or not the "Fieri" concert will be held at this new location has yet to be confirmed.
Stagecoach Festival founder Thad Bye continues, "We just want to create an experience everyone can enjoy and remember...Festival everybody seems to enjoy, at least once! And it is only right that since we are all related, we get to share in the fun. It has been great to share the success we have had over the past few years with the world through our traveling festivals, and we look forward to sharing more in the future." The "Founding Fathers" concerts and festivals are part of the Stagecoach family, which also includes Thad Bye and his wife Patti Traynor.
Thad Bye is the Stagecoach Festival's Managing Director. He adds, "This is such a thrilling time for Stagecoach. With so much happening behind the scenes, we have never been more ready to welcome new talent and to extend the reach of our wonderful festival to provide exposure for these artists." He and Patti Traynor are both excited about the potential of the new genre that will emerge as the first-ever Indio musical boom.
