The Coachella Valley has always been known as the home of Stagecoach, the largest country music festival in the western United States. But over the past few years, the Coachella Valley has stepped out as a home for country music & its artists. A large part of the growth in country music throughout the Coachella Valley, has to do with the influence of our local casinos. Agua Caliente, Fantasy Springs & Spotlight 29 have all showcased their facilities by hosting a number of country artists.Here is a brief rundown of the local facilities and the artists that have performed at the venue:
Agua Caliente: Located in Rancho Mirage, The Show at Agua Caliente is a 2100 seat venue, which boasts some of the latest lighting and videography, in the valley.
