Stagecoach is a hot commodity. Given that country music is America’s top-selling genre with that the festival takes place in the Coachella Valley, the home of the uber-popular Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Stagecoach is a sold-out affair. Here are five reasons why this is one musical event that you simply can’t miss come 2017.

  1. You’ll see some of the biggest stars in the country perform. Carrie Underwood, who performed on Saturday night, is a globally recognized star, as are the likes of headliners Luke Bryan and Eric Church. Those familiar with country will also have been super bummed to miss acts like Little Big Town, Sam Hunt and The Band Perry.
  2. There are surprises. A country music festival is probably the place you’d least expect to see Snoop Dogg, but it happened. Snoop came out on Friday to perform during Sam Hunt’s set, proving that Coachella Valley surprises aren’t specific to then Coachella festival alone.
  3. You’ll be giving back by going. Stagecoach benefits a variety of organizations, including the Coachella Valley Community TrustIndio Teen CenterIndio Senior CenterSilverlake Conservatory of MusicThe Painted TurtleDesert Resource CenterGlobal Inheritance and California CareForce.
  4. There are great gastro options. The vendors here are local to the Coachella Valley, from restaurants such as Jackelope RanchLas Casuelas QuintaTack Room Tavern and Murphs Gaslight to well-known vendors like Spicy Pie and Taste Of Brazil. There’s something for everyone across the board, including those who are vegetarian, vegan, raw and gluten-free as well.
  5. There’s much more to do here than just listen to music. As with Coachella, you’ll find that iconic ferris wheel, plus a dance hall, jewelry making, arts & crafts, games, competitions and some serious whip cracking. Yes, we mean that literally.
