ZZ Top, George Thorogood and Gregg Allman will will have something on common with country superstars Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton come next April: all are among the artists performing at the 2015 Stagecoach Music Festival in California.
Now in its ninth year, the three-day festival is set for April 24-26, 2015, and takes place as it has in years past at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. Located near Palm Springs, it’s the same location that traditionally hosts Coachella earlier in the same same month.
The lineup features a huge range music. Among the country artists announced today are Jake Owen, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley, Jerrod Niemann, Eli Young Band, Kacey Musgraves, Kip Moore, ZZ Top, Merle Haggard, Sturgill Simpson, Parmalee and Justin Moore.
Also, as they’ve done in previous festivals, Stagecoach adds rock, indie and Americana artists into the mix as well. This year features such veteran artists as Mickey Gilley, Eric Burdon and the Animals, the Oak Ridge Boys and “In the Ghetto” songwriter Mac Davis as well as the Pegi Young, Steve Earle, the Handsome Family, the Lone Bellow, Lydia Loveless, Nikki Lane and Chatham County Line.
Our friends at Riverside, Calif.’s K-FROG (a CBS Radio station) will have complete Stagecoach festival coverage, from stories leading into the event to day-to-day festival coverage including backstage interviews, photos, and more.
