Tips and Tricks

Stagecoach festival 2018

So let me start this by saying that I have lived in the Palm Springs Area for over 20 years and have attended over 30 Goldenvoice fests in Indio including Coachella, Desert Trip, and, of course Stagecoach.  Here are five things that I have picked up over the years.

1) Get a Shuttle Pass

Unless you are camping out or have an RV at the festival, get yourself a shuttle pass. The shuttles are pretty great.  There are plenty of pickup points around the desert and the buses run pretty regularly so you don’t have to wait around all day to catch one.  Bring a beer or two on the bus (cans not bottles) and enjoy your ride in rather than being stuck behind the wheel in traffic and then later trying to remember where you parked.

Pro-Tip: Check StubHub to find them at a discount.

2) Hydrate!

Indio gets hot at the end of April.  Add to that some beer and you could be in for a world of hurt if you don’t remember to drink some freakin’ water.  Get a huge jug of water and pound that thing while you are kicking it by the pool to pre-party.  Then use the refillable water stations to keep hydrated inside of Stagecoach.  Also, buy your Pedialyte before you get to town as many of the stores mark that stuff way up for the festival weekends.

3) Bring an Empty Bag

They hand out a ton of free stuff at Stagecoach.  Like a ton of it.

4) Stay Somewhere that Makes Sense

The Palm Springs Area is sprawling.  You might save money by staying somewhere like Yucca Valley or Beaumont (I have talked to people at the fest that did this), but then you are basically an hour away from Stagecoach and that drive back to the hotel is gonna suck.  We have some tips for where to stay here.

5) Don’t Leave Monday Morning

The traffic getting out of the Coachella Valley on the morning after Stagecoach bloooooooows.  Just plan on staying another day or, at the very least, plan on kicking it in the desert until Monday evening when things start to get back to normal.  You can spend that time by the pool, taking a hike (also hydrate for that), or checking out some of the local attractions like the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway or the Palm Springs Air Museum.


The Stagecoach festival takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, the same location as the Coachella Music and Arts Festival – with the three-day country fest taking place after the to weekends of Coachella.
