Stagecoach 2011: the fans
First the hipsters; then the metalheads; now the cowboy hats! Indio, Calif., played host to its third major festival in as many weeks on April 30 and May 1, as the Stagecoach Country Music Festival took over the Empire Polo Grounds, site of Coachella and the Big 4 Festival (with Metallica and Slayer). As usual, Metromix Palm Springs had writers and photographers covering every corner of the multi-stage event, capturing such performers as Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney and Carrie Underwood in action, as well as the fans braving the heat to see them.
