LOL-LA had high praise for Stagecoach after this year's event.

"It is similar to Coachella in that they share the same venue in the same month, but the comparisons end there," Francisco Reyes wrote. "The countless RVs from all over the country and the elaborate makeshift country villages they assemble for more than three days are evidence that country music, in many ways, is a way of life.

"The barbecue competitions are delectable, something that is rarely the case in music concerts and festivals. The atmosphere is one that is more conducive to partying than a party in any of the American Pie movies-minus the frat boys. Finally, the music and the lineup were a lot more diverse and eclectic than most people who haven't experienced Stagecoach would believe, with bands like Hurray For The Riff Raff, Nocona, and CALICO providing a folksy flair for those who don't fancy shotgunning Pabst Blue Ribbons and letting loose for three days straight."
