The world’s biggest country music party is going to low places in 2018.
In a rare festival appearance, country music megastar Garth Brooks will close out the 2018 Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA next April. Multi platinum stars Florida Georgia Line will headline on Friday night and Aussie country rock royal Keith Urban tops the bill on Saturday night.
Other performers announced for the three-day music festival -- set for Friday, April 27 to Sunday, April 29 at Empire Polo Club -- include Lee Brice, Jake Owen, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Young, Chris Lane, Brothers Osborne, Midland and many more.
"Everyone knows Stagecoach is the biggest country festival in the world, we are coming with the sole purpose of making it the biggest party on the planet!" Garth Brooks said in statement announcing his first-ever headlining appearance at the festival. Urban will be returning Stagecoach for the first time in eight years, while Florida Georgia Line will be making their headlining debut.
“We love Stagecoach, we’ve played there several times so to be headlining – we could not be more excited,” FGL said in a statement. “We’re gonna throw the biggest party of the year. I hope you all are ready”
In addition to the initial lineup, organizers announced that they will be adding the SiriusXM Spotlight Stage which will feature rising stars like Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde, Seth Ennis, Runaway June, Jordan Davis and more. SiriusXM will also be providing live coverage from the festival with interviews and performances.
There will also be new camping options next year. Car camping will be available for the first time for just $179, a lower budget option for attendees that puts them closer to the music than ever. If that weren’t enough, the redesigned HonkyTonk Dance Hall will feature even more DJs and there will be even more culinary options than ever, from delicious BBQ to craft beer.
It all adds up to the best Stagecoach yet. 3-day general admission and Corral (VIP) passes go on sale Friday, Sept. 22 at 11am through the Stagecoach website.
