Stagecoach takes place over three days, from April 24 to 26, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw will headline the event. Other contemporary country stars are playing as well, including Jake Owen, Kip Moore, Kacey Musgraves, Jerrod Neimann and the Band Perry.
Importantly, the festival isn't limited to the groups that have a heavy radio presence: It makes an effort to show country's breadth and depth. A number of prominent figures from previous generations are playing, like Steve Earle and Merle Haggard. Sturgill Simpson, a relative newcomer with a '70s-indebted sound, will perform, as will Lydia Loveless, whose music veers closer to classic rock. Speaking of classic rock: ZZ Top and Greg Allman are making appearances as well. On the other end of the age spectrum, fans can find youngsters like Maddie & Tae and the Brothers Osborne.
