    Cool Stagecoach 2009

    Stagecoach to return to two-day schedule

    By Bruce Fessier • August 28, 2008

    The Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio will return to being a two-day festival in 2009 after breaking attendance records over three days in May.

    Stagecoach founder Paul Tollett of the Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice promoters said the reduction in size of what was becoming one of the most significant country music festivals in the nation had nothing to do with the declining economy.

    “It’s a two-day festival,” Tollett said. “Last year The Eagles popped up, so that was just an anomaly. California’s coolest band pops up and you grab it.”

    Dates for the third annual festival haven’t been announced, but it’s traditionally held around the first weekend in May, one week after the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.

    Stagecoach added to its unique diversity last year when Goldenvoice built a whole roots-rock day around The Eagles with John Fogerty, Glen Campbell, Shelby Lynne and Mike Ness.

    Tollett said there will be more country rock in 2009.

    “It’s going to be kind of similar, just over the two days,” he said.

    He’s now “knee deep” in booking bands for both Stagecoach and Coachella, he said after staging the All Points West festival in New Jersey this month with Radiohead as a headliner.

    Goldenvoice has been asking for feedback from newsletter subscribers on last year’s Stagecoach. Tollett is seeking a major headliner for Coachella, but not because he’s planning a big 10th anniversary event.

    “I’m not an anniversary/birthday kind of guy,” he said. “I just want a great show. But, I’m very pro-Coachella, so I want to come up with a nice lineup.”

    That's why I started taking Monday, in addition to Friday, off of work.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I agree about 2 days. Friday and Saturday would be good. Or maybe if GV books shitty bands Sunday. That'd be good too.

    anyone who would prefer 2 days of coachella over 3 is crazy. 2 days goes by too fast anyway. 3 all the way.

    I am crossing my fingers for that added fourth day. But if it were to happen I would probably be regreting it come sunday.

    3 days is just enough to get lost in the middle of it all. I'd vote for longer, frankly. thursday night in the campground was so so amazing

    Shitty bands according to me. You can have all your Arcade Fire and Animal Collective and rap bands on that day or something. Oh, and Tool. Take that too.

    Three days is too much for my SO to handle, and it also requires me to have my kids be absent from school too many days. If I was single and alone, 3 days would be fine for me.
