A Restful Hotel Near Stagecoach
The Stagecoach Festival, which spotlights country music, traditionally takes place the weekend following Coachella. Though held on the same grounds, this sister event has a different vibe; cowboy hats and boots abound, and in the more relaxed atmosphere, attendees are allowed to bring low-back chairs to spread across the field. Tractor exhibits offer popular selfie backdrops, and barbeque contests scent the air with smoked meats. Last year, the lineup featured Dierks Bentley, Shania Twain, Kenny Chesne, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson and Cyndi Lauper.
Tips for Attending:
- For those with children, the Half-Pint Hootenanny offers a sheltered area with arts and crafts, face painting and hair decorating.
- For a good, old-fashioned hoedown, check out the schedule at the air-conditioned HonkyTonk Dance Hall; dance lessons are on the agenda.
- On Monday morning, a massive exodus of trailers and motorhomes make slow work of travel. Consider hitting the road on Sunday night or staying an extra day.

Recover from all that sun with a dip in the tranquil rooftop pool of Kimpton Rowan, followed by equally refreshing cocktails at High Bar.
