Dwight Yoakam Only Country Singer on Coachella Festival

One set of dates that’s solid on Dwight Yoakam’s schedule comes April 26.

He’s the only country artist set to appear in Indio, Calif., at the annual Coachella music festival, which this year features Pink Floyd alum Roger Waters, Death Cab For Cutie, Kraftwerk and Portishead. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (commonly known as Coachella) is a three-day (formerly a one or two-day) annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California. The event features many genres of music including alternative rock, hip hop, country, and electronica as well as large sculptural art. The event has several stages/tents set-up throughout the grounds, each playing live music continuously. The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent (2006 also saw the addition of a smaller Oasis Dome).

The following weekend, he’ll return to the same location for the second annual Stagecoach Country Music Festival. Among the artists booked so far for that event are Carrie Underwood, Big & Rich, Earl Scruggs, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley and country music legends, The Judds.

  1. Stagecoach Music festival is one of the hot events in California and even in all US. The festival always is an occasion to see star singers and great bands and also to watch great performance. This festival is attended by thousands of people from all around US and it becomes a little difficult to find a ticket. Ticket brokers always find the occasion to sky high prices. I deeply love music and I always attend concerts and festivals.
