And Brooks & Dunn are going to be there. Beat that, Coachella.
Stagecoach, country’s answer to the storied indie-rock desert ‘fest is returning to Indio, Calif. on April 24th and 25th, 2010. In addition to the Brooks & Dunn reunion, we also have the first-ever festival appearances of Keith Urban and Toby Keith to look forward to.
And if we haven’t convinced you yet, here’s the whole initial lineup: Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn and Sugarland joined by Billy Currington, Gary Allan, Phil Vassar, Merle Haggard, The Oak Ridge Boys, Jamey Johnson, Ray Price, Carlene Carter, Joey + Rory, BJ Thomas, The Avett Brothers, Bobby Bare, Nick 13, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Baxter Black, Steel Drivers, Easton Corbin, Mallary Hope, Chuck Mead, Mary Gauthier, Bill Anderson, Waddie Mitchell and Trampled By Turtles.
Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday, October 16 at 10 a.m. (PT) and can be ordered at www.stagecoachfestival.com. A two-day pass starts at $99, which ain’t too shabby in our opinion. The festival website has more information on camping, RV packages and other options.
