New York Times (5/8/07) “Everywhere you looked this weekend, someone was singing along…The combination of mainstream and nonmainstream acts is part of what sets Stagecoach apart from more established country music festivals…”
The Tennessean (5/8/07): “Desert fest celebrates country -- in all its forms…The result was the country music version of a smorgasbord buffet…for all the country you care to hear over two days in one of the most picturesque locations in North America.”
USA Today (5/8/07): “Organizers billed Stagecoach as ‘California’s Country Music Festival,’ and they define ‘country’ as a broader entity than is in favor on today's country radio.”
More than 55,000 people attended the two-day festival at the Empire Polo Club.
Some 2,200 RVs parked in a camp area next to the festival grounds and actually began the party Friday night with the screening of a movie and karaoke music in a cantina.
