Stagecoach 2017: Three Days in the California Desert

Day One:

Before heading to the venue we stopped at Sloan’s Restaurant in Indio for brunch at the recommendation of a friend. This place was a great breakfast food with a total mom and pop vibe. If you’re in Indio for breakfast I would recommend checking it out!

After brunch we headed over to Stagecoach! It was both of our first times at the festival so we wanted to get there and explore!

Favorite performers from day one? Dierks Bentley, Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi and Elle King! We ended our night at In N’ Out in true California kid fashion!

Day Two:

We started our second day by driving to Palm Springs to visit one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, Las Casuals! We came here a few years ago and we couldn’t wait to come back! Once again they did not disappoint! Growing up in Southern California, I’ve eaten A LOT of good Mexican food, this place is definitely in my top 5!

Day two at Stagecoach was really great! We spent most of the day camping out for a good spot to see night two’s headliner Shania Twain! My sister and I are kind of short so we wanted a front spot so we wouldn’t miss anything! While we waited for Shania we also got to see Dan + Shay, Maren Morris and Brett Eldridge!

Day two also ended at In N’ Out, because why not?

Day 3:

Our third day at Stagecoach was definitely the hottest of the weekend! We got there earlier than the other two days to see Kiefer Sutherland perform. After that we had some time to kill so we hung out in the Honkytonk, an indoor line dance hall, key word being INDOOR so we could escape the heat for a little while.

Day three ended with some watermelon and performances by Thomas Rhett and Kenny Chesney!

Overall my first Stagecoach experience was pretty great! Next time I would like to try camping on site so that I have the freedom to come and go as I please. One of the downsides of the festival was that there’s a lot of down time in the sun! A perk of camping is being able to chill in your own place in between sets.

See you next year Stagecoach!
