Palomino Festival is being promoted by Goldenvoice who are behind the hugely popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which takes place over two weekends this April, headlined by Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Kanye West.

Goldenvoice also host the country music weekender Stagecoach, which takes place on the same Indio site at Coachella.

Tickets for Palomino Festival go on sale 1 April. For more information visit palominopasadena.com.

Speaking about the event, Goldenvoice talent buyer Stacy Vee commented: “It has been a dream for as long as I can remember to do a festival taking a modern, fresh approach to today’s alt-country music. Artists in the space have been pushing boundaries [and] creating sounds that are brand new. I wanted to fan these flames and celebrate this changing culture.”
