Stagecoach lineup revealed

Country mega-stars Eric Church, Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan will headline the 2016 Stagecoach Festival - a top-tier lineup almost identical to last year’s.

In 2014, Church, Bryan and Jason Aldean were the main attractions at the three-day festival in Indio that’s come to be known as “the country Coachella.” But Underwood will break up the bro-dominance next spring when she takes the stage there for the first time since 2011.

According to an announcement Monday from promoter Goldenvoice, Stagecoach will be held Friday through Sunday, April 29-May 1, and once again features a constellation of stars, whether rising, established, or iconic, from Nashville and beyond.

The 2016 lineup includes Chris Young, Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch, Joe Nichols, Eric Paslay Old Dominion, A Thousand Horses, The Band Perry, Little Big Town, Emmylou Harris, Lee Ann Womack, Marty Stuart, Dale Watson, John Fogerty, The Doobie Brothers and The Marshall Tucker Band.

Three-day passes start at $299. Tickets go on sale Friday at 11 a.m. at

Bryan, arguably the biggest name in modern country music has a concert date at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre on Oct. 16, when he brings his Kick the Dust Up tour to Chula Vista. Dustin Lynch and Randy Houser will open.
