Stagecoach announces Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney and the rest of the 2017 lineup

The biggest festival in country music isn’t somewhere in Nashville or Austin—instead, it takes place in Indio, California, on the same grounds that host Coachella. Stagecoach is an annual pilgrimage for many fans and, with the announcement of 2017’s lineup, we don’t expect that to change.

Leading the lineup pack are Dierks Bentley, Shania Twain and Kenney Chesney. They’ll be joined by a roster of familiar names who have defined the genre for generations, including Willie Nelson and the Family, Travis Tritt, Wynonna and the Big Noise.

The more Americana and indie side of country is represented as well, with Justin Townes Earle, Quiet Life and Margo Price, among others. There are a few vintage throwbacks mixed in too, with the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, the Zombies and even Cindy Lauper on the bill.

Bluegrass lovers will likely be particularly drawn to Sunday, when the Steep Canyon Rangers, the band often fronted by actor Steve Martin, take the stage, along with a staging of “The Hillbenders present The Who’s Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry.

Tickets for the festival will go on sale this Friday, November 18, at 11am. General admission passes for the fest will start at $299, with options to upgrade to Corral Reserved Seating or the Corral Standing Pit, offering a premium viewing location right in front of the main stage. The festival is all ages and kids under 10 are allowed to attend for free with a ticket-holding adult, so you can make it a full family event. RV camping spots will also be available when tickets go on sale.
