Headliners include Eric Church, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan among country music’s top names. Stagecoach follows well-known Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, adding country music to the scene in Indio.

The Indio Performing Arts Center, located four miles north of Empire Polo Club, hosts the 2014 Coachella Improv/Comedy Festival July 11th through 13th.
