HITS Daily Double


If you hear a chorus of "yahoos" coming from the vicinity of the Coachella Valley, don't be alarmed; it's just the folks at AEG and Goldenvoice cheering the first sellout of the country-dominated Stagecoach festival. The news comes in the wake of AEG's executive "desert summit" and brings major kudos for Goldenvoice EVP and festival mastermind Stacy Vee (pictured), whose boots are definitely made for walkin'—across a playa.

In case you'd forgotten who'll be stomping through Stagecoach 2024 (which hits the Empire Polo Club sands 4/26-28), the headliners are Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert and Eric Church; additional performers include Post Malone, Willie Nelson, Jelly Roll, HARDY, Bailey Zimmerman, The Beach Boys, Dwight Yoakam, Clint Black, Carin León and Megan Moroney, to name but a few (more details here). No wonder the fest, which will follow country music's biggest year yet in the streaming marketplace, is so hot. And speaking of hot, if you plan to attend Stagecoach, we recommend you don breathable clothing, much as you'd wear to an event on, say, the surface of the sun.
