Stagecoach Friday started on a warm note. A lot less people than Coachella Fest so its easier to get around. There are only 3 stages instead of the six at Coachella. You can maneuver from one stage to another all day. When one act finishes the fans can run to the next stage without a lot of difficulty. Barriers are set up so walking from one place to another is easy.

The dress code of the day seemed to be short shorts for the ladies with cowboy boots and the men had bare chests, shorts and flip flop shoes. Straw bales are provided as seats for the Mustang and Palomino stages. Folding chairs by the front of the Mane Stage can be purchased ahead of time. Fans can still get close to the stage to watch a favorite performer.

There are food vendors all over the grounds so no one would go hungry. There are places to buy cowboy hats and western wear so fans can feel more a part of the event.
Hats are welcome to shade the face from the sun as the weather was a bit on the hot side.

Some of the top name artists on Friday were Joe Nichols, Roger McGuinn, Old Crow Medicine Show and Trace Adkins. Actor Jeff Bridges gave up acting for a bit to join his band The Abiders. The last two performers on the Mane Stage were Hank Williams Jr. and Toby Keith. The final performer on the Palomino Stage was Norah Jones with her band the Little Willies. Some of the bands earlier in the day were first timers at Stagecoach while others filled the stage area with fans that knew them.
