Since 2007, country music fans have flocked to Indio, California for the biggest country music festival in the world. Nicknamed “Coachella’s country cousin,” thousands of country music fans pack the Empire Polo Club grounds the weekend after Coachella. The festival turns into its own village as campgrounds, stages, bars, restaurants and parking lots cover the 642 acre venue space.
The three-day festival is the place to be for country music fans, beer drinkers and BBQ connoisseurs. Country legends Luke Bryan, Kane Brown and Chris Stapleton will headline this year’s festival and huge names like Jon Pardi, ZZ Top, Old Dominion and Tyler Childers will bring their twang to Southern California. BBQ from Guy Fieri’s Stagecoach Smokehouse and beer from the Beer Barn are joined by almost 50 food and drink vendors that will be spread across the festival. Be sure to take a ride on the iconic ferris wheel and get a peak of the Budweiser Clydesdales.
Dressing the part is major at Stagecoach and Nikki Lane’s Stage Stop Marketplace has you covered with cowboy boots and hats, fringe jackets, rhinestones and more high class vintage hillbilly threads. If you get the chance to sneak away from the heat after shopping, stop by the air conditioned HonkyTonk dance hall with curated music from Diplo (and don’t miss the return of his Late Night in Palomino DJ set).
